MITEI is currently developing graduate-level massive open online courses (MOOCs) based on residential MIT energy classes. These courses are free to audit, and certificates of completion for academic and/or professional recognition are available to purchase.
Transformative Living Labs in Mobility will run from May 24–July 5. This course is an introduction to sustainable and equitable solutions in urban mobility, and to the “living labs” model: a method of co-development among public and private actors, researchers, and civil society to accelerate innovation in climate action and sustainable urban planning and development.
Energy Economics and Policy ran from January 18–April 12, 2022. In this course, you’ll learn the economic principles and characteristics of various, interrelated energy markets. You’ll also study policy options and market mechanisms to drive more sustainable and equitable energy access. The archived course remains available. Additional live offerings will be announced shortly.
Sustainable Energy ran from September 14–December 14, 2021. In the course, you’ll learn how to critically analyze modern energy technologies from engineering and socio-political perspectives, and gain the skills necessary to help the world meet rising energy demand while reducing carbon dioxide and the other greenhouse gas emissions driving climate change. The archived course remains available. Additional live offerings will be announced shortly.
Principles of Modeling, Simulation, and Control for Electric Energy Systems ran from June 22–September 14, 2021. In this course, students learn to apply a dynamic systems-level approach and engage emerging research on efficient, sustainable, and physically and economically feasible electric power systems of the future. The archived course remains available. Additional live offerings will be announced shortly.
In Sustainable Building Design, thousands of students around the world are learning to explore key scientific principles, technologies, and analysis techniques for designing comfortable indoor environments while reducing energy use and associated climate change effects. The archived course remains available. Additional live offerings will be announced shortly.
Additional courses are in development. More information will be coming shortly.
OpenCourseWare also offers energy-related content to explore. OCW is a free online publication of material from thousands of MIT courses, openly sharing the entire MIT curriculum with learners and educators around the world. You may browse a full list of energy-related course content here.
