Mathematical Models of Wave-Energy Extraction

Program Overview

         The Mathematical Models of Wave-Energy Extraction course will explore the question of how to extract usable energy from waves in the ocean. This is an interdisciplinary problem that relies heavily on mathematics, civil, environmental, and mechanical engineering principles.

         Students enroll in MATH 391, MEGR 391, CEEGR 91, or ECEGR 391 attending class three times a week. During spring break students will travel to Chile to continue their studies through exploratory and immersive learning. Classes will be a mixture of lecture, discussion, student presentations, and on-site experiences.

         Dr. John Carter,, hopes to teach this course again in the winter quarter of 2016. Please e-mail him if you are interested.
