Are you interested in Energy Science?
With this video we want to give you a short overall impression!
The future supply of mankind with energy is a global challenge for science. This involves a wide range of questions concerning natural resources, climate and nutrition.
"Energy Science" at the University of Duisburg-Essen is becoming an increasingly popular bachelor's degree program throughout Germany. In addition to the fundamentals of natural science, we provide students with a sound physical knowledge of all forms of energy, energy transport and energy consumption.
As chairman of the examination board, I always come into contact with the students: Where do I do the industrial internship? How do I register my Bachelor thesis? Who answers my questions about the year abroad? I'm happy to help find the answers! It is always a pleasure for me to observe how familiar the research groups are with each other - our supervision ratio is very good! A perfect basis for good scientific work!
Climate Change Mitigation in Hong Kong’s Electricity Sector
Research questions: Political analysis: Which barriers in Hong Kong’s political sector hinder reduction of energy consumption? 19 semi-structured interviews with various stakeholders
Technical analysis: Which impact does largescale solar PV installation have on the dispatch of conventional power plants? Power plant dispatch simulation in Excel VBA 15-minute timesteps for one entire year
In this seminar, different energy systems are compared and evaluated according to their efficiency, among other things. Experts from industry and research present various topics, which are discussed controversially in the following week with presentations by students. Excursions to various institutions are part of the program.
Figure Excursion: Visit to the operation of the city of Mülheim Raffelberg hydroelectric power plant.
On August 07th, seven students visited Düsseldorf Airport together with Dr. Florian Mazur from research group Schreckenberg. Here, they were able to experience the logistical processes studied in the lecture “Physics of Traffic 2” (Airplane Traffic) at an international airport and see live on site what an important role physics plays for aviation, making the theory from the lecture more tangible and comprehensible for the participants.
