This master’s course objective is realizing a high specializing course aimed at teaching the methodologies for a rational use of energy, based on energy saving and efficiency. The course deal with questions related to energy efficiency in the civil and industrial sectors, energy certification and energy efficiency improvement of buildings. It deals with a rational use of energy, energy production based and renewable sources and integrated storage systems, the use of home automation aimed at energy saving. It will supply the competences on applicable laws and on energy free market. The course objective is training professional profiles capable of operating in the energy industry, being involved in processes of existing energy resources management and in realizing new highly-efficient energy systems. The course meets the increasing demand of professional profiles skilled in this field also in the light of Community directives and national regulations promoting energy efficiency improvement and production of energy from renewable sources.
At the end of this study path the student will be able to meet energy problems in the civil and industrial industries. He will be able to provide advice for the realization of small-size plants for producing energy from renewable sources and will be able to propose solutions to improve energy efficiency in the buildings, housing and industrial sectors. He will possess the skills to make an energy certification of a building. It will possess the skills to carry on free-lance activities in the field of energy highly-efficient buildings and in the energy improvement of existing buildings.
Training activities structuring
During the course issues such as innovative methodologies for energy efficiency in the civil and industrial sectors, energy highly-efficient material applicable to buildings, innovative home automation solution for automated service supply, innovative technology aimed at energy saving in historical buildings, methodologies for electric power micro-production from reviewable sources will be treated.
The modules envisaged by this master’s course are as follows:
Basics of energetics
Buildings energy certification
Thermal engineering, environmental technologies and energy efficiency
Electric power supply and intelligent management
Rational management of energy
Energy related legislation
The course will start with 80 hours of distance training on range of basic issues delivered by university professor coming from the most renowned Italian universities. The distance courses will be preparatory to the subsequent study of advance techniques of management and production systems, structured on 120 hours of classroom-based lessons delivered by qualified university teachers and testimonials from the corporate world. Beside distance and face-to-face lessons there will be practice work activities to be carried on autonomously or with a tutor’s support.
The master’s course includes a 200-hour internship period in renowned companies having a partnership agreement with the International Telematic University UNINETTUNO.
Upon completion of each course the candidates must take a written face-to-face exam.
Further details are available on the study program.
The training activities take place on the Internet, in the “Master” section of the portal: www.uninettunouniversity.net, the first portal in the world where teaching is delivered in 4 languages: Italian, English, French and Arabic.
The adopted psycho-pedagogic model concretizes the shift:
From teacher’s central role to the student’s central role;
From knowledge transfer to knowledge creation;
From a passive and competitive learning to active and collaborative learning.
The students play an active role in their learning progress and can study whenever and wherever they wish to. In the course of their learning path, the students are guided by an online tutoring system which is able to facilitate their learning and web-based communication process and to supply them with the tools to carry out their study of a specific subject successfully.
Online tutoring is organized into classes of students, through an advanced system of agenda that is able to recognize each individual and obtain the tracking of training activities and a quantitative and qualitative evaluation of the learning process of each single student.
How to study
The Internet-based training activities take place in a web-based macro-area which is called the Didactic Cyberspace. In the Didactic Cyberspace the training and learning process takes place and accesses are diversified through customized login and password depending on the role played by the different actors of the training process: Professors, Tutors and Students. These three categories of users can access the same information regarding each subject. More specifically, the Professor and Tutor can modify or replace training materials and add new ones for the whole course duration, whereas the student can dispose of an area of his own where he can include data, information and personal notes.
Lo studente può accedere:
On these pages there are the Learning Environments where is possible to access:
The Appointed Teaching Professor’s Page;
The Tutor’s Page.
Training Materials which represent the course contents: digitized video lessons including bookmarks allowing for hypertextual and multimedia linking to books, selected bibliographical references, texts of the exercises, lists of selected websites. The system of dynamic bookmarks gives the Internet-based video lessons a hypertextual character allowing different levels of navigation: from one lesson to the other one, among subjects of a single lesson, between the materials referring to the same subject.
The distance Tutoring activities may be carried out in two ways:
Distance Tutoring. The students enrolled in the Master’s course will be assisted in every step of their study path by Telematic Professors-Tutors. The Telematic Professor-Tutor, represents a guide as well as a constant presence along the Learning Process.
in a synchronic manner, by using chats, videochats, video and audio-conferencing, implemented in the Didactic Cyberspace, but also the three-dimensional classroom created on the UTIU Island of knowledge on Second Life.
in a diachronic manner, through tools such as e-mail and discussion forums on the Internet. The discussion forums, related to the topics of a given teaching subject, enable to enlarge dialogue and trigger a collaborative learning and give the opportunity for autonomous thinking on the issue being discussed and on the study activities carried on.
Virtual Classroom in UNINETTUNO Island of Knowledge on Second Life:. on UNINETTUNO (International Telematic University) Island of Knowledge a 3D lecture hall was realized and it is devoted to this master’s courses. In this environment the students and professors/tutors’ avatars interact in the three-dimensional world of UNINETTUNO by their voice. Practice work, assessment tests and videoconferences with the protagonists of the Master’s Course, who will be attending through their avatars, are carried out, as well as real-time practice activities guided by the professors/tutors’ avatars.
In the virtual classroom of Second Life in the UNINETTUNO Island of Knowledge the students and the professors/tutors teach and learn in a collaborative and cooperative way; they build and share knowledge with people belonging to different political, cultural and religious settings, they dialogue, cultural differences are confronted, socialization processes are implemented as well as the creation of new knowledge.
