Wired for Industrial Engineering & Management?


How do we find solutions for renewable energy sources that aren’t 24/7 available for us? What is a smart grid and how smart can we make them ?

Test whether the bachelor Industrial Engineering & Management fits you with this free online 4-week online study programme offered by the Scholierenacademie of the University of Groningen. In this web class you experience - at home, from behind your own computer - the content, work forms and atmosphere of this bachelor programme. Our tutors are ready to provide you with personal feedback.

During the bachelor Industrial Engineering and Management you will learn to translate new technologies into practical solutions, like sustainable production processes or new products.

This web class is about smart grids. Nowadays a lot of renewable energy resources such as wind and sunlight are used. However, this poses some unique problems. Most renewable energy resources are not always available. For example there is no sunlight during the night and some days it is more windy than other days. Smart grids integrate smart meters, smart appliances, renewable energy resources and other devices to solve these problems. The smart grid can for example charge your car when there is an excess of energy and stop charging when there is a high demand.
