Description:
COURSE GOALS: To acquire knowledge on main characteristics of different energy sources; physical and technological aspects of their use; social, environmental and economic issues connected with meeting present and future energy needs.

LEARNING OUTCOMES AT THE LEVEL OF THE PROGRAMME:
1. KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
1.2. demonstrate a thorough knowledge and understanding of the most important physics theories (logical and mathematical structure, experimental support, described physical phenomena);
2. APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
2.1. identify and describe important aspects of a particular physical phenomenon or problem;
2.2. recognize and follow the logic of arguments, evaluate the adequacy of arguments and construct well supported arguments;
3. MAKING JUDGMENTS
3.1. develop a critical scientific attitude towards research in general, and in particular by learning to critically evaluate arguments, assumptions, abstract concepts and data;
4. COMMUNICATION SKILLS
4.1. communicate effectively with pupils and colleagues;
4.2. present complex ideas clearly and concisely;
5. LEARNING SKILLS
5.1. search for and use professional literature as well as any other sources of relevant information;

LEARNING OUTCOMES SPECIFIC FOR THE COURSE:
Upon passing the course on Energy and ecology, the student will be able to:
* define basic concepts of energy, energy sources, energy conversion, storage and transportation
* demonstrate knowledge of impacts of energy sources on society, economy, human health and environment
* analyse and estimate consequences of different scenarios of economic development from the point of sustainable energy management

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
Work, energy, power. Primary energy sources: their main characteristics, reserves, production and consumption in Croatia and the world. Energy conversion: basics, processes, devices, engines, plants. Transmission, transport and storage of different forms of energy. Energy and society: impacts on human health and environment, economy, sustainable development.

REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS:
Students must attend 75% of the lectures. During the course students must write and defend two seminar works.

GRADING AND ASSESSING THE WORK OF STUDENTS:
Grading and assessing the work of students during the semester:
* students write and defend two seminar works.
Grading after the semester:
* final oral exam (including one exercise which has to be solve numerically)
Contributions to the final grade:
* 60% of the grade is carried by the two seminar works
* 40% of the grade is carried by the final oral exam
