ET 490 - Power Engineering Technology

Class Hours: 3, Units: 3
Prerequisite(s): ET 344 , ET 350 , ET 350L 
Co-requisite(s): ET 490L 
A capstone course in engineering technology in which students apply the engineering fundamentals of previous thermodynamics and electrical machinery coursework to studies of combustion processes, combustion by-products and emission abatement and electrical distribution and transmissions systems commonly found in modern marine propulsion plants and the power industry. Additionally, through guest lecturer presentations and/or field trips, students will become familiar with renewable energy resources. As a research project, students will conduct an energy audit of a virtual facility and develop an engineering model for application of “green” technologies to improve energy efficiency and reduce the carbon footprint.
