The College of Engineering at the University of Kentucky is pleased to partner with the Pamplona Learning Spanish Institute to present an education abroad opportunity this summer, a renewable energies course in Pamplona, Spain. The Navarre region of Spain generates 70% of its energy from renewable resources, so this course will provide a unique perspective on the local application of green energy resources. The course is lecture-based, but includes site visits to various renewable energy installations.
This four credit course should be transferrable as an elective to your current engineering curriculum. Students who are not enrolled at the University of Kentucky should apply through our Office of International Affairs (http://abroad.ad.uky.edu/)
There are two options for instruction: Option A includes a two week Spanish immersion course + the renewable energies program (21 June through 30 July, 2010), and Option B is the renewable energies program itself (5 July through 30 July, 2010). Students may elect to stay in local homes (which includes some meals) or in local apartments. The prices for the various packages are given in the Pamplona course general description.
Dr. Eric Grulke, Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies and Professor of Chemical Engineering,
will be delivering the course content on U.S. energy policy, while the remainder will be provided by practicing engineers in the Navarre region.
Please contact Dr. Eric Grulke if you have questions; firstname.lastname@example.org, and we hope to see you in Navarre!
