As this year's program, the National Geothermal Academy will be holding a Geothermal Reservoir Engineering short course with Prof. Roland Horne from Stanford, June 20-24, 2016.

The National Geothermal Academy (U.S.), hosted by the Great Basin Center for Geothermal Energy at the University of Nevada in Reno, will be holding a Geothermal Reservoir Engineering short course this summer.

The summer academy is a collection of eight individual short courses covering the “end-to-end” development of a geothermal system for electrical power generation, from initial exploration to market and political policies that make geothermal power plants cost competitive.  The emerging and high-growth areas of direct use and ground source heat pumps are also included.This program is intended for outstanding undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals with strong backgrounds in science, math, and/or engineering.

Individual modules are offered in groups from one to three weeks duration, alternating between geoscience and engineering content each year.

Summer 2016 will be a one week short course on Reservoir Engineering with Prof. Roland Horne from Stanford.  June 20-24, 2016.

Applications from students (2 credits) due by April 22, 2016. Applications fromprofessionals (certificate) due by June 6, 2016. Applications accepted only until course is filled.
