ENERGY@STANFORD: a special course for incoming graduate students

ENERGY@STANFORD: Energy Research for the Twenty-First Century

The Precourt Institute for Energy, the Global Climate and Energy Project, the Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Science, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory will band together to offer a one-week course entitled “ENERGY@STANFORD: Energy Research for the Twenty-First Century” to incoming graduate students at Stanford next fall. The course will be held at Stanford during the week of September 12-16, 2011.

The objective of the course will be to provide a broad perspective on energy: present and future energy conversion and storage technologies, potential for improved energy efficiency, energy markets, and energy policy. It is intended for students who may engage deeply in a particular area in their future work but wish to have a broad overview and an introduction to groups doing energy research at Stanford. The course will also allow incoming students to meet others who have an interest in energy research, with the intent of building an interdisciplinary community across the campus.

Updates and further details will be posted at http://pie.stanford.edu/EnergyClassFall2011.html
