Addresses energy generation and related environmental problems. A project introduces students to the feasibility analysis of a particular technology for energy production, including technical, economic and Greenhouse Gas Emissions analyses. The decision-making process of whether to adopt a particular renewable energy technology is demonstrated in the project.
Fossil energy, coal seam gas
CO2 control feasibility
Analysis of renewable energy technologies
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
