The speciality Hydrogen technologies 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 Master programme Hydrogen technologies is applied discipline for the students of speciality Green energetics. The objects of the course are: basic speciality of hydrogen connected with its using as fuel. The intention is concentrated on the hydrogen cycle included transformation of solar energy in electricity- photolyse of water in hydrogen and oxygen-storage of hydrogen for using. Objects are basic parameters of hydrogen cells and different models of fuel cells. Other objects are and different modifications of fuel cells. The students will receive information for technologic, technical, ecologic and economic aspects of hydrogen energetics as well as the legislation and standarts connected with the hydrogen technologies.
THE SUCCESSFUL GRADUATES FROM THE MASTER DEGREE BIOFUELS WILL BE IN POSSESSION OF:
the implantation of Renewable Energy Sources considering the basic nature
and technical aspects.
WILL HAVE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT:
business plans, programs and projects.
WILL BE ABLE:
the hydrogen technologies; to use the appropriate methods of modelling, simulation and optimization by different applications.
construction the projects of renewable and conventional energy sources
systems and exploitation, to plan and make research in the area of hydrogen technologies.
international character within the framework of particular political and
solving practical problems.
EXPECTED REALIZATION OF THE GRADUATES:
The graduates from the master degree Hydrogen technologies are needed
experts in a very well-paid branch. They can realize themselves as
professionals 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
opportunity 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.
