Type A Code Learning outcomes
 CE3 Learn the basic concepts of primary energy, final energy, energy conversion and energy efficiency.
Understand the concepts, technical characteristics and advantages and disadvantages of the separate production of energy, cogeneration, trigeneration and polygeneration or multigeneration of energy.
Handle the concepts of decentralised or distributed systems of energy and hot and cold district networks.
Understand the principal technical characteristics of technologies that can be used as basic blocks in polygeneration systems.
Calculate the primary energy saving, CO2 emissions and the economic indicators in cogeneration, trigeneration and polygeneration installations.
Understand and calculate systems for recovering heat primarily from waste gases for generating steam and actioning thermal systems.
Understand and calculate systems for accumulating heat and cold for polygeneration systems.
Understand and calculate polygeneration systems based on organic fuels such as biogas and biomass gasification.
Understand and calculate polygeneration systems whose final products include the production of desalinated water via mechanical and technical energy.
Calculate and compare alternative configurations for supplying electricity, heat and cold to an industrial client or for buildings on the basis of environmental, energy and economic indicators, taking into account their specific energy demand profile.

 CT2 Master the tools for managing their own identity and activities in a digital environment.
Search for and find information autonomously using criteria of importance, reliability and relevance, which is useful for creating knowledge.
Organise information with appropriate tools (online and face-to-face) so that it can be updated, retrieved and processed for re-use in future projects.
Produce information with tools and formats appropriate to the communicative situation and with complete honesty.
Use IT to share and exchange the results of academic and scientific projects in interdisciplinary contexts that seek knowledge transfer.
 CT3 Recognise the situation as a problem in a multidisciplinary, research or professional environment, and take an active part in finding a solution.
Follow a systematic method with an overall approach to divide a complex problem into parts and identify the causes by applying scientific and professional knowledge.
Design a new solution by using all the resources necessary and available to cope with the problem.
Draw up a realistic model that specifies all the aspects of the solution proposed.
Assess the model proposed by contrasting it with the real context of application, find shortcomings and suggest improvements.
