Abstract

In Fall 2010, a course on Global Energy Issues was developed as part of a multidisciplinary undergraduate certificate in power and energy. The course was designed to address the policy, economic, and societal issues of energy, in order to complement the more technical courses required as part of the undergraduate certificate. In order to minimize any additional credit hours required of students pursuing the certificate, the course was also designed to fit within the University's new General Education requirements as a "Global Dynamics" course. The course is also well suited to cover the broader "impacts" of engineering as required by ABET. The paper also overviews class structure and teaching method to promote active student inquiry into the material.
