In this course the student will study the Nevada State Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors Statutes and Codes, including Professional Engineering Ethics.
In this course the student will understand the hybrid power plant and the necessary design and planning details required to ensure reliable and efficient means for power production.
In this course the student will understand understand current Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) and Pumped Storage Hydropower (PSH) technologies and explore future advances of this technology by examining the feasibility of a variety of different concepts.
In this course the student will understand a variety of different energy storage technologies and explore their advantages and disadvantages with an in-depth cost and performance comparison. This course follows the report: Energy Storage Technology and Cost Characterization Report, published by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
This course provides a thorough overview of current electrical storage technologies including batteries, flywheels, compressed air energy storage (CAES), and pumped storage hydropower (PSH) and is a how-to guide for engineers to aid in the selection, procurement, installation, and/or operation of stationary energy storage systems in today’s electric grid.
In this course the student will understand Electrification, the shift from non-electric to electric sources of energy at the point of final consumption, and an analysis of the potential impacts of widespread electrification on the evolution of the U.S. electricity system. This course follows the guide: Electrification Futures Study: Scenarios of Power System Evolution and Infrastructure Development for the United States, published by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
In this course the student will understand how to reduce the cost and improve the effectiveness of operations and maintenance (O&M) for photovoltaic (PV) systems and combined PV and energy storage systems. The course follows the guide: Best Practices for O&M of Photovoltaic and Energy Storage Systems 3rd edition, published by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
In this ethics course the student will understand the standards of professional behavior for adherence to the highest ethical conduct and revisit the emphasis that the holder of a professional license has a direct and vital impact on the safety, health, and welfare of the public.
In this course the student will review the rectangular surveying system which has been used continuously in the United States since 1785. As all facets of this system occasionally come into use, the student will become well versed in the field procedures of conducting an original survey covering both historical and current methods.
In this course the student will understand procedural guidance, technical specifications, and quality control (QC) criteria for performing aerial photogrammetric mapping activities.
This course is an introduction of using sUAS in land surveying. From FAA licensing requirements to common sUAS products and software, with an understanding of these basics a land surveyor can easily get started in using this up and coming technology.
In this course the student will review the principles of Airborne Topographic LiDAR and learn how to utilize methods to employ this technology in the field.
In this course the student will learns to locate points using angles and distances for establishing curves. An essential tool in construction surveying when determining the line of a curve for road layout or some other type of curved construction.
This course provides guidance for documenting accurate boundary descriptions and locations by survey in the standards followed for Executive and public land orders and proclamations.
In this course the student will understand the understand federal guidelines of resurveying corner monuments and the procedures and laws to successfully reestablish these boundaries.
