Energy, its resources and environmental effects are, as an unsolved question, getting continuously greater significance in the activities of man, both locally and globally. In the future more and more skilful and competent energy engineers will be needed to meet this challenge.
The Department of Energy Technology is the largest unit at Aalto University that makes research and teaching in the field of energy technology. The number of researchers is about 60 and the overall staff size is about 100. The research aims at improving the energy and material efficiency of processes, reducing of the environmental load, and minimizing the end-use of energy.
Professor Mika Järvinen with his team was honored for innovation that converts a steel-manufacturing by-product into Precipitated calcium carbonate.
On the project course, 54 student teams generated ideas for a functional university campus, inventions for everyday life and innovative buildings.
The school is addressed to students and researchers interested in non-equilibrium and thermodynamic phenomena in small condensed-matter systems.
