Energy Conversion Certificate

University of Massachusetts Lowell (UMass Lowell)


Energy conversion is a discipline that spans across three departments: Electrical, Mechanical, and Chemical and Nuclear Engineering. Interest is rising for practical applications in the housing industry to supply houses with clean sources of energy to meet electrical supply needs, as well as for space heating/cooling. All renewable energy sources will be considered (e.g. wind energy and photovoltaics). Information about batteries, battery charging stations, battery chargers, and energy conversion devices (such as rectifiers, inverters, choppers, controllers) is presented as related to the development of low emission vehicles.
