Fuels the source of primary energy and the basis for the development and even the existence of contemporary economies. The production and use of fuels needs to follow sustainability principles in order to be acceptable in the long term.
Students at the course gain the competence and knowledge in the field of fuels technologies and the analysis oftheir use and production. The course combines two groups of subjects:
* the basis of fuel technologies
* the principles of fuels and energy systems analysis and its use in planning the sustainable development.
The first group comprises the following subjects: engineering of chemical reactors, surface phenomena and industrial catalytic processes, physics of energy transformation, basics of biotechnology, batteries and fuel cells, and environmental protection in chemical processes.
The second group includes the following subjects: modeling and planning of fuels and energy systems, energy markets and policies, energy and the environment.
Classes, laboratories and projects constitute the main part of the course, thus giving practical competence forthe application of the acquired knowledge. Graduates are prepared to analyze and optimize the processes of fuels use and production with respect to technical, economic and environmental issues.
