The course contains theme environment


For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.


The aim of the course is to give the electrical engineering students knowledge about sustainable development. The students will treat environmental problems, primarily in electric power engineering. The aim is also to initiate a discussion on sustainable development and assess the measures of society in the area of environment and resources. Another aim is to train the ability to transfer information in an effective way.


The goals of the course are:
  • Evaluate systems in electric power engineering and other engineering areas, focusing on the demands of society on sustainable development, resources and environmental impact.
  • Present, discuss and question environmental problems.
  • Develop abilities in oral and written presentations in the field of environmental technology.


The main part of the course is performed in projects, where the project groups are given a specific environmental task. The groups shall assess systems in power engineering and other fields of engineering with emphasis on the demands of society on sustainable development, resourses and environmental impact.

The project work is supplemented by lectures which introduce the project and give support by introduction of analytic tools like life cycle analysis and treat environmental problems with electrotechnical relevance.


The course will be given in project form, where the main part will be done in groups. Each group will go deeper in a specific environmental problem. The work shall be presented in writing (a report) as well as orally and in a poster at a mini conference. The group shall oppose to another group's presentation. The work of the group will be graded.

As a supplement to the project work a number of lectures will be given. The lectures are examined separately.


Course booklets and A.R.W.Jackson & J.M.Jackson: Environmental Science. 2nd edition 2000, Prentice Hall.


In order to pass the students shall have
* passed the examination on the lecture course,
*actively participated in project work and presentation,
* made an approved project report and presentation.
The project work is graded on group level, where the group members which have passed according to the conditions above can get the grade 3, 4 or 5, based on an evaluation of the project work, report, presentation and opposition.

Students, who have passed, can get a higher individual grade than the group grade by participating in an examination on the course book Jackson & Jackson: Environmental Science. If the grade on this examination is higher than the group grade the student will get the examination grade, otherwise keep the group grade as final grade.
