The speciality Biofuels is in the professional direction 5.4. Energetics. The speciality objective is the creation of well-educated engineers with opportunities for professional realization in the dynamic and fast-developing area of enetgetics and in particular of the contemporary energy techniques, Renewable Energy Sources and Energy Efficiency.
The graduates will be able to work as constructors, designers, consultants, experts, enterreneurs, scholars, lecturers, representatives of state and municipal administrations and non-governmental organizations. They will thus meet the challenge of a constantly changing nature and economic situation and set themselves the ambitious task to make the energy cheap, safety and ecological and at the same time the energetics-effective and sustainable.
The course give possibility of the students to be included in the area of the using of biomass for the production of biofuel. The main use of the course will be the known of the basic processes for the preparation of the biomass in fuels and the connected with that knowledges for the engineering of the processes. The concentration is on the conversion of the biomass in biodisel, ethanol and other alcohols. There is connection with the combination of biomass for the production of hydrogen and contemporary methods for coversion of biomass in usefull products.
THE SUCCESSFUL GRADUATES FROM THE MASTER DEGREE BIOFUELS WILL BE IN POSSESSION OF:
WILL HAVE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT:
business plans, programs and projects.
WILL BE ABLE:
the biofuels; to use the appropriate methods of modelling, simulation and optimization by different biofuels.
EXPECTED REALIZATION OF THE GRADUATES:
The graduates from the master degree „BIOFUELS” are needed experts in a very well-paid branch. They can realize themselves asprofessionals in various fields of energetics (and in particular in the sphere of the Renewable Energy Sources and the Energy Efficiency) as:
COURSE ORGANISATION AND KNOWLEDGE ASSESSMENT SYSTEM
A special accent in the course of studies is the orientation towards project development and realization. The project content is to be worked out with the participation of leading representatives of the economy, industry, crafts, administration and government. Thus, the students will have the оpportunity to gain practical experience and skills in the mentioned areas starting from the initial years of their studies.
Special attention is paid to activities directed to encouraging the students to participate in international student exchange programs which give them research or lecturing opportunities. The European Polytechnical University is working hard on maintaining effective partnerships with other Universities in Europe and in the US.
