The availability of educated and trained people at all levels and in all engineering disciplines is a crucial factor for the successful implementation of any programme towards sustainable use of energy, as well as preserving the environment. While there is a broad appreciation of the need for energy and environmental education, only a few countries are actively pursuing teaching activities in this area. It is expected that with increasing pressures of fossil fuel scarcity and adverse environmental impacts of their use, more countries would make efforts towards providing renewable energy and environmental education. In the last two decades some efforts have been made to provide energy and environmental education, but most of these efforts have been made in the area of postgraduate level courses. Introducing relevant inputs into the undergraduate level courses in universities have not been taken seriously. The author has developed a multilevel course entitled “Renewable Energy Technology”. This course can be used for the purpose of teaching renewable energy and environmental technology at undergraduate level of electrical engineering courses. This paper presents the course summary and course outline as well as method of teaching, method of assessment and their relation to course objectives
