MSc - Bionik/ Biomimetics in Energy Systems
taught in English
At the beginning of the 21 century our industrial society is confronted with major challenges in regard to energy and environment. Using new insights from the developing cross-sectional discipline Biomimetics, we can utilize strategies and procedures which have been successfully developed by nature over four billion years of evolution.
The international Master program "Bionik / Biomimetics in Energy Systems" focuses international for the first time on the area of Biomimetics and Energy. As a branch of Biomimetics, it researches energy transformations in living organisms in order to develop similar technical systems and devices for energy production. The following questions are therefore of current relevance:
- How do natural power systems work?
- What energy strategies does nature follow and how does it regulate its energy resources?
- What future technologies and systems can be derived for the benefit of humanity?
- Which new technical energy systems can you as a future energy expert develop from these findings?
- How could a solar - industrialised world look like?
Based on nature’s model what kind of energy future is possible and can a solar bionics strategy for the "energy fate" of future generations be defined?"
If you are interested in these topics and questions, then “Bionik / Biomimetics in Energy Systems” at the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences is the right Master program for you!
The wide range of subjects offered provides you as a student a learning environment which is academic and scientific but also closely related to practice. In this respect considerable value is placed on a continual interaction between theoretical basis mediation and active research and development. The integrative approach to teaching ensures that you gain a broad general competence as a future expert in biomimetics. You will also acquire open-mindedness, social competence, planning flexibility and action flexibility, as well as the necessary economic competence which will qualify you in the best way possible for the solution of future challenges and issues in interdisciplinary active teams.
