Certificate in Renewable Energy and Environmental Management Systems (PART I & II) with specilization in:
Certificate in Windpower
The Certificate Programme in Wind Power is designed to prepare students for professional career paths in the global wind power industry, or for research studies in wind energy subjects. The Programme is designed for those who wish to focus on the exciting interdisciplinary field of wind power project management, which combines technology, management and social science. During the programme, students will meet industry representatives and researchers that contribute to the development of the field. The programme is organised in a sequential path of thematic instruction in planning, project development and management of wind farm projects. The program covers courses in wind power technology where industry-relevant subjects such as wind resource assessment and measurement, energy estimations, wind turbine technology, operation and maintenance of wind farms and electrical markets in wind power systems are studied. Aspects of wind power project development and management are also studied.
Certificate in Solar Energy
In this course, technologies involved in solar energy in relation to the capturing, conversion and distribution of the energy will be studied. These include:
Certificate in Biomass Technology
Energy from fossil fuels (Biomass) - stored solar energy is of interest to mankind. Therefore, improving the way we tap this energy will be ideal and aid in maintaining continuous supply of energy. The main aim of this course therefore is to introduce students to the details of energy efficiency and the environmental impact of Biomass.
Certificate in Hydropower
The course will introduce students to the various types of hydro-electric power and geothermal energy. The course consists of a series of foundational courses and a larger group project where students will be required to apply knowledge from the other courses they have learned by conducting a pre-study of the development alternatives in a Ghanaian water system. This involves learning how to combine techniques, environment and economy to secure success.
After completion, participants would be in good position to work in institutions such as Environmental Protection Agency; Ministry of Environment and Science; Ministry of Food and Agriculture, Ministry of Forestry, Land and Mines; The Forestry Commission, The Minerals Commission, Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, District Assemblies, National Development and Planning Commission, United Nations - Environment Programme (UNEP) and all Energy sectors.
Duration: 6 months for each part.
