The International in Low Carbon Energy program from  National Tsing Hua University is provided by the College of Nuclear Science, National Tsing Hua University. Low carbon  energy has been adopted as a primary energy source for alleviating the impact of the greenhouse effect. 


After more than fifty years of development, fuel cells now show promising potentials for applications in modular power stations, electric vehicles, and portable electronic devices, with the aid of nanotechnology. Though environmentally friendly, the foregoing options of low carbon energy still have challenges to overcome, in the aspects of nuclear safety, energy conversion efficiency, and power density improvement.


 The goal of low carbon energy discipline is to explore advanced scientific basis and technology breakthrough in these energy systems. In addition to discussion on the principles and applications, novel research results and newly developed technologies pertinent to the subject areas will be reviewed in a timely manner. 

Upon the completion of this International in Low Carbon Energy program from  National Tsing Hua University, students will be able to fully understand the in-depth nature of low carbon energy, to identify the pros and cons of these energy technologies, and to capture the global trend of their future development. All lectures in this program are offered in English for international students.
