Testimonials about Transition Engineering and InTIME© courses
Testimonials regarding the Professional Development course delivered up to 2020, with similar content to the Energy InTIME© 6-Module course. Achieving NetZero InTIME© course has been launched in 2021, based on feedback received from students and the need for a short introduction course.
"A big thank you for the transition engineering course. It gave me a deep insight into the problems we have, how you can flip your perspective and also how to bust myths ;-)" Philip 2018
"The principles in transition engineering have really opened up new doors and have been helpful in cracking the tough nut of our steam generators." Mike 2018
“Excellent tool for tackling really wicked problems. The clearly structured textbook contains memorable stories, and the course material and lectures that can be reviewed repeatedly are definitely content rich! There is good support from the teaching staff, and the zoom discussions bring up many interesting ideas.” Inge 2020
“Today, we have many tools mapping out our carbon transition, which are constrained by building on the way we think today, are consistently failing to deliver the scale and speed of change we need. For me Transition Engineering breaks this cycle.” Jamie 2020
“Without exaggeration, I found the transition engineering perspective on resource use, alternative energy options and pathways forward into a sustainable world literally eye-opening, while also being rational and achievable. I recommend this course to anyone serious about understanding the challenges we face in building a sustainable society and the ways we can get there.” Tom 2020
“The Transition Engineering Course has totally changed my perspective on how we can achieve sustainability. It establishes the limitation of our current resources and planetary living systems and then imagines what type of society we could create with the resources and limitations that we know will exist in the future. It doesn’t rely on any, yet to be invented, techniques of greenhouse gas mitigation, or any magical substances that will solve our future energy production and storage problems. But rather it examines our options around what we could do with what we already have. As a Materials Engineer who has been working in heavy industry and in research for 35 years, I am finding this methodology unique in that everything is both practical and eminently achievable.” Jill 2020
