“The summer academy is a collection of eight individual short courses covering the “end-to-end” development of a geothermal system for electrical power generation, from initial exploration to market and political policies that make geothermal power plants cost competitive. The emerging and high-growth areas of direct use and ground source heat pumps are also included. This program is intended for outstanding undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals with strong backgrounds in science, math, and/or engineering.
Individual modules are offered in groups from one to three weeks duration, alternating between geoscience and engineering content each year.”
