Experiences with a technical elective course, ME 4353/6353 Alternate Energy Systems, are delineated. Alternate Energy Systems (AES) was devised for senior and beginning graduate students in mechanical engineering (ME) and presents a first-order introduction to the plethora of alternate energy technologies now considered as available, viable, or promising. The AES course covers basic principles, economic considerations, application potentials, and advantages and disadvantages of a variety of alternate energy technologies. The course topics, contents, and goals are discussed in detail in the paper. After two offering, the AES course meets the stated purpose of the course and has become a popular elective even though the workload and effort required are significant.
