Energy Technology & Policy, a course taught by Dr. Michael E. Webber at The University of Texas at Austin, gives students an overview of energy technologies, fuels, environmental impacts and public policies. Topics are interdisciplinary and include an introduction to quantitative concepts in energy, including the differences among fuels and energy technologies, energy policy levers, and the societal aspects of energy, such as culture, economics, war, and international affairs. The course alsocovers brief snippets of energy history and looks forward into the future. Students enrolled in ‘Energy Technology & Policy’ are required to create short videos about an energy topic of their choice to enhance their interdisciplinary communication skills.
