1 Session 4: Identification of needed competences (gap analysis) Some ideas for the open discussion Mohamed Tahar Chikhaoui President of the MIT Club of Germany Massachusetts Institute of Technology

2 DISEM Workshop Tunis, 3-4 September 2012 What do we mean when we talk about competence or competency? “Competence" as a combination of knowledge, skills and behavior which an individual should have to perform a job properly. Mohamed Tahar Chikhaoui

3 DISEM Workshop Tunis, 3-4 September 2012 How is competence evaluated? To determine if one person has the competency for a certain task or job, one has to make a job analysis to identifying the content of a job in terms activities involved and attributes needed to perform the work and identifies major job requirements. Mohamed Tahar Chikhaoui

4 DISEM Workshop Tunis, 3-4 September 2012 How to build the needed Competences The role of the universities -Offer the students an “energy education” cross-disciplinary program, addresses both fundamental and applied knowledge. - Catalyze student knowledge and enthusiasm to solve technologically, socially and politically challenging problems. - Establish student-driven projects. -Offer courses on energy and climate for kids and teens in primary and secondary schools. (summer schools) Mohamed Tahar Chikhaoui

5 DISEM Workshop Tunis, 3-4 September 2012 Some examples of projects taken from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT Energy initiative Mohamed Tahar Chikhaoui

6 DISEM Workshop Tunis, 3-4 September 2012 Student groups Many student groups on campus offer creative activities related to energy, including lectures and discussions, community service, extracurricular design projects, energy advocacy and/or academic work. Clubs include graduate and undergraduate students. Students can contact all of these groups directly. Student group leaders can contact us with suggestions, additions, and updates. contact us is a student-led group working to establish a campus biodiesel system, incorporating the collection of used vegetable oil (UVO) from dining locations, the processing of the UVO into certifiable biodiesel, and the usage of the biodiesel product in campus transportation. is also developing educational materials and seeks to be an information resource on biofuels. Formed in fall of 2006, is working to implement the new system in the The group includes students and administrators, and welcomes any MIT community members interested in the project. Mohamed Tahar Chikhaoui

7 DISEM Workshop Tunis, 3-4 September 2012 MIT China Energy and Environment Research Group The MIT China Energy and Environment Research Group (MIT CEER) is a student club at MIT that is founded in order to create a communication platform for students, scholars and professionals at MIT and other Boston-area Universities who are interested in topics related to China's energy and environment. It organizes speeches by inviting officials from the Chinese and US governments, industrial leaders and scholars, hosts seminars and round-table discussions on China energy and environmental studies, and builds up connections with China’s energy organizations to promote more information exchange about China’s energy policies and markets. Mohamed Tahar Chikhaoui

8 DISEM Workshop Tunis, 3-4 September 2012 Electric Vehicle Team The MIT Electric Vehicle Team (EVT) is a multidisciplinary group of undergraduate and graduate students that designs, builds, tests, and demonstrates electric vehicles (EVs). The team's mission is to 1) demonstrate and research electric vehicle technologies, 2) provide educational opportunities for MIT students, and 3) increase public awareness of electric and other advanced vehicle technologies. EVT is currently finalizing the conversion of a 1976 Porsche 914 into a battery electric vehicle (BEV) with lithium- ion batteries for testing advanced EV technologies. Mohamed Tahar Chikhaoui

9 DISEM Workshop Tunis, 3-4 September 2012 MIT Electricity Student Research Group The MIT Electricity Student Research Group (MIT ESRG) is a student driven, interdisciplinary research group focused on electric power systems research at the doctoral and advanced master’s level at MIT and neighboring academic institutions. The group meets on the MIT campus once a week during the regular academic year, and acts as a mixture of a forum for student research presentations and discussions and a special topics seminar with faculty and guest lecturers. MIT ESRG currently has members from several departments at MIT including the Engineering Systems Division (ESD), Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), Operations Research Center (ORC), Department of Urban Studies and Planning (DUSP), and Program in History, Anthropology, and Science, Technology, and Society (HASTS). Members’ research ranges from topics in operations and control, markets and regulation, long-term policy and planning, system integration, and power systems modeling—cutting across transmission & distribution, generation- supply, and demand issues. Mohamed Tahar Chikhaoui

10 DISEM Workshop Tunis, 3-4 September 2012 MIT Energy Club The MIT Energy Club is focused on the creation of a tight-knit energy community at MIT. The club holds weekly events, including document-based energy discussion groups and the MIT Energy Lecture Series, alongside signature events such as the annual MIT EnergyNight and the MIT Energy Conference. The club's emphasis is on building a community at MIT with a deeper understanding of global energy trends and challenges through open, fact-based discussion. Mohamed Tahar Chikhaoui

11 DISEM Workshop Tunis, 3-4 September 2012 MIT Solar Air Conditioning System (SACS) Team The MIT Solar Air Conditioning System (SACS) is a novel, efficient system utilizing solar thermal energy for heating and air conditioning. The goals of our on-campus demo project are to reduce energy consumption of buildings, demonstrate and promote the technology, and illustrate MIT's leadership in green buildings. The SACS demo project is located in WW15 with 37,000SF of roof space, and will serve as an educational program for both students and faculty at MIT. Mohamed Tahar Chikhaoui

12 DISEM Workshop Tunis, 3-4 September 2012 MIT Solar Electric Vehicle Team (SEVT) Over the past 20 years, the MIT Solar Electric Vehicle Team has designed and built 10 vehicles and raced them all over the world. The team has promoted alternative energy and transportation through participation in races as well as in local fairs and community events. SEVT provides practical skills impossible to communicate in the classroom environment, turning its members from students into engineers. In addition to hands-on engineering experience, students develop project management and business skills. Mohamed Tahar Chikhaoui

13 DISEM Workshop Tunis, 3-4 September 2012 We strive to inspire, educate, and empower a new generation of leaders — those capable of creating a sustainable, just, and vital future for our planet. We support students, staff, and faculty in bringing our passion, energy, and ingenuity to these contexts to make our mark. Mohamed Tahar Chikhaoui

14 DISEM Workshop Tunis, 3-4 September 2012 Example of a project taken from the American University of Beirut Mohamed Tahar Chikhaoui

15 DISEM Workshop Tunis, 3-4 September 2012 Robotics & Renewable Energy Courses for Kids & Teens in association with The American University of Beirut (AUB/ Regional External Programs (REP) Continuing Educations Center (CEC). Starting July 26 to August 16, Mohamed Tahar Chikhaoui
