Learn about Energy and Power through hands-on projects to understand the interplay of the generation, distribution and the use of energy. Students will learn how to design and construct motors, pumps, heat exchangers, hydraulics and pipeline systems. Work with renewable and non-renewable energy generation, transformers and the electrical grid to understand how energy travels along power lines. Five types of energy will be explored – mechanical, heat, chemical, electromagnetic and nuclear power. Students will also learn about automation by programming and managing robotics.
Course 1: Energy and Power Foundations This course engages students in a variety of hands-on, authentic projects to learn about energy and power methods through the design and construction of motors, pumps, heat exchangers, hydraulics and pipeline systems. These are the technologies used in large power plant systems to run and maintain processes in energy generation plants. Through contextual […]
