Detailed Analysis

CourseMarks Score®

8.9 / 10

CourseMarks Score® helps students to find the best classes. We aggregate 18 factors, including freshness, student feedback and content diversity.

Freshness Score

Course content can become outdated quite quickly. After analysing 71,530 courses, we found that the highest rated courses are updated every year. If a course has not been updated for more than 2 years, you should carefully evaluate the course before enrolling.

Student Feedback

8.7 / 10
We analyzed factors such as the rating (4.7/5) and the ratio between the number of reviews and the number of students, which is a great signal of student commitment.

New courses are hard to evaluate because there are no or just a few student ratings, but Student Feedback Score helps you find great courses even with fewer reviews.

Content Score

8.7 / 10
Video Score: 8.1 / 10
The course includes 3h 48m video content. Courses with more videos usually have a higher average rating. We have found that the sweet spot is 16 hours of video, which is long enough to teach a topic comprehensively, but not overwhelming. Courses over 16 hours of video gets the maximum score.

Description

How tall is a modern wind turbine and how can it possibly generate power from the wind? This course gives an overview of key aspects in wind energy engineering. Whether you are looking for general insight in this green technology or your ambition is to pursue a career in wind energy engineering, ‘Wind Energy’ is an excellent starting point.

Experts located in the wind pioneering country of Denmark will take you on a tour through the most fundamental disciplines of wind energy research such as wind measurements and resource assessment, aerodynamics, wind turbine technology, structural mechanics, materials, financial and electrical systems.

You will gain a rational understanding of wind energy engineering and, through hands-on exercises, you will learn to perform wind energy calculations based on simple models. Working with the different course disciplines will give you a taste of what wind energy engineering is all about. This allows you to identify the most interesting or relevant aspects of wind energy engineering to be pursued in your future studies or in your professional career.

Department of Wind Energy
Technical University of Denmark (DTU)
I am a Senior Scientist at DTU Wind Energy working with mapping of winds over the ocean from satellite observations. Working with science that can be applied directly in the wind energy industry is very motivating. I coordinate the development of online courses at DTU Wind Energy and I am very interested in how we can make the experience of following an online course as good, or even better, than taking the same course in a classroom. My nationality is Danish and I Iive in Roskilde, Denmark.
