Taking individual courses can help students pursue their long-range goals without being locked into a formal course of study. This flexibility can make for a better fit with career and family commitments while still allowing individuals to pursue their objectives.
Energy studies are useful for those looking to learn about how power works. Specialized energy programs may focus on a specific type of energy, such as solar or wind. Some programs may teach about sustainable energy and reducing the negative environmental impact of conventional power.

Wind turbines involve many technical aspects: rotor blades, gearboxes, generators, control systems, etc. These are based on many physical disciplines, such as dynamics, statics, aerodynamics, and electricity. Anyone who wants to apply their scientific or engineering skills to wind turbines should have an overview of the technology with which they interact. This course provides such an overview and helps you understand how the various components of a wind energy system act together. This course gives students an overview of the multidisciplinary aspects of wind turbines without too much detailed study of the literature of all these aspects. It will explain the relevant technologies at a similarly accessible level....

Energy is the golden thread that connects economic growth, increases social equity and an environment that allows the world to thrive. Development is not possible without energy and sustainable development is not possible without sustainable energy.
This online programme will give a comprehensive overview of renewable energy as a means to enable sustainable development at a global scale. It will present the case for how renewable energies represent both an environmental necessity and an economic opportunity.
The programme supports the UN Sustainable Energy for All initiative (SE4ALL), which aims to provide universal access to modern energy services, and double the worldwide rate of improvement in energy efficiency and the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix. Energy underpins all of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which this course is also closely aligned with....

Course in Global Energy and Climate Policy
The Global Energy and Climate Policy course offers an introduction to the theoretical and practical understanding of how energy and climate change policies are designed, shaped, advocated and implemented. As energy markets go truly global, domestic energy policies are becoming more and more entangled with wider issues of international governance. Concurrently, the urgent need to mitigate and adapt to climate change and transition to a low-carbon future is adding a further layer of complexity.
The course is aimed broadly at people interested in learning more about interconnected issues in energy and climate policy globally. It assumes a level of interest but no necessary previous knowledge. However, the course also offers sufficient up to date research and new critical perspectives to be of interest to people with expertise in or academic familiarity with the topic as well. ...
