A MSc Programme in Energy & Environmental Management was jointly organised by the School of Chemical Engineering and the Department of Industrial Management and Technology, University of Piraeus. In the MSc Programme, the Environmental and Energy Management Research Unit undertook the following courses:
Computer-aided Data Analysis
The course aimed at providing experience in the application of methods for quantitative data analysis and computational techniques in problem-solving and decision support tool development. Numerous statistical analysis and applied management science methods and tools were presented, such as: Data description methods (statistical criteria, charting), Statistical inference (confidence intervals, hypothesis tests), Data analysis (regression and time series analysis), Application of statistical methods in decision-making, Optimisation techniques, and Monte Carlo simulation. The course focused on practical application examples, emphasizing on how the above tools can be used in problem-solving, rather than on a theoretical analysis of the different methods presented.
Renewable Energy Sources
The course focused on the analysis of current and emerging energy management issues and the provision of expert knowledge on Renewable Energy Sources and their potential contribution to a more sustainable energy production.
