◆ PHY 107 - Energy Science & Technology (GT-SC1)

4.0 Credits
Prerequisites: Requires college-level composition and reading placement.
Provides an in-depth look at the science of energy and energy technologies, with a focus on renewable energy resources and clean technologies. The state of world energy use will provide a context to discuss the need for expansion of renewable energy technology. The course will provide a background in the physics of energy, non-renewable energy methods, the problems of energy transfer and loss, and look at the future utilization of these technologies. This lab-based course will provide the student with the opportunity to explore energy through hands-on activities. Student learning activities may include labs concerning conservation of energy; testing mechanical, electrical, heat and fluid power systems; energy transfer and loss; understanding energy audits; testing solar collectors and wind generators; and investigating hydrogen fuel cells.
