For a long period the area of Electric Power engineering has seen a declining number of applicants to relevant studies at DTU. It was decided to design an intensive 3-week course whish could motivate students by letting the business players introduce the challenges in the electric energy area. The course named: Electric Power Technology - economy, politics and technology got a double purpose: introduction to problems based project design as well as presentation of the technical area. The course has become rather popular. Nearly all Danish students who continue studies in the area of electric energy have passed the course.
