Course Description

The aim of the Energy Science programme of Trinity College Dublin is to provide students with a science, engineering or other appropriate background, with a broad knowledge and experience of the science and application of both conventional and sustainable energy technologies. The connection between physics, chemistry, earth science and economics determines how energy is utilised, the environmental consequences of its use, and in turn determines many government policies across the globe. A working understanding of each of these areas is necessary for students inspired to pursue a career in the energy sector, or for those interested in communicating or managing the environments impact of the world's energy use, such as climate change.

The syllabus covers Energy Economics and Policy, Natural resource management, fossil and nuclear energy, conventional energy conversion devices, sustainable energy technologies, Electricity and power electronics, and mitigation of the environmental impact of Energy utilisation. Each topic starts from the fundamental scientific principles and develops to the actual engineering applications.
