In this course students will learn how to evaluate various problems in view of statistics at first.
Then, they will study a number of energy saving techniques being used in companies, factories, schools, etc., and evaluate those from a standpoint of statistics.
Finally, they will learn about the nuclear accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, and its effect upon particularly some municipalities in Fukushima prefecture.
This course corresponds to the diploma policies 1, 3, and 4.
Students will learn a variety of energy saving techniques being used in this society.
Students will learn how to evaluate the efficiency of each technique described above, by utilizing statistics.
Students will learn the working principle of a nuclear power plant and its environmental effects at the time and after the accident.
Students are evaluated on the basis of contributions to the class through discussions etc.(10%), reports(60%) and presentation(30%), the last two of which are due at the end of the semester.
