BSc in mechanical or chemical engineering.
The students get to evaluate the whole life cycle of different solutions and their effect on recyclability. The students prepare different scenarios for future energy storage applications that will take into account circular economy aspects and designs for recycling.
- Identify circular economy concepts and the role of energy in recycling
- Recognise the material choice effect to degradation mechanisms of the system
- Develop new design for recycling approach for energy storage application and justify with scientific argumentation
- Share one’s professional expertise in an online team
The course is entirely online and can be taken from distance, no requirements for attendance. There is no exam. The course includes assignment modules with a fixed deadline.
