This micro-credential will enable students to gain an understanding of the theory and practice of Environmental Engineering in relation to air pollution and advance their capacity to address air quality challenges at local, regional and national levels.
The solar industry is a relatively new sector in Ireland and becoming a larger contributor towards our renewable energy and greenhouse gas targets. The aim of this module is to give students an extended foundation of the main concepts of solar energy and to enable them to practically apply their knowledge in research and development.
A comprehensive overview of the different approaches to modelling transportation networks is provided in this module, equipping students with a variety of tools for examining transportation problems.
CPS are emerging as an area of engineering with significant economic and societal implications. It includes emerging new technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), industrial systems, and limitless “smart” technologies, including smart cars, homes, appliances. This micro-credential will introduce students to the design concepts in CPS, frameworks for CPS and allow students to understand the ethical dimension including safety and reliability in the design of CPS.
Since the changes in technology and policy relating to environmental impact have been rapid in this area, even practising engineers with as little as five years’ experience can expect to require further education in this area. Topics such as compact nuclear generators and heavy electromechanical plant, hydrogen-based fuelling and energy storage are rapidly emerging fields in this area. Planning and other climate change solution decisions must be made by technology leaders with the fullest information possible.
