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.



  1. Basic knowledge in the machine-building area, in the technologies.
  2. Profound knowledge about the energy conversion and its application in the implantation of Renewable Energy Sources considering the basic nature and technical aspects.
  3. A very good engineering ability to plan and exploit BIOFUELS
  4. A solid scientific background.


  1. The modern thechnologies of the production and using the biofuels.
  2. The specific character of biofuels management.
  3. The European politics and standards.
  4. The methods of definition and realization of strategies, energetics

business plans, programs and projects.


  1. To apply engineering solutions of problematic aspects in the area of

the biofuels; to use the appropriate methods of modelling, simulation and optimization by different biofuels.

  1. To analyze and evaluate from the point of view of energy, economy and construction the projects of renewable and conventional energy sourcessystems and exploitation, to plan and make research in the area of biofuels.
  2. To work in teams solving problems of interdisciplinary and international character within the framework of particular political and economical conditions.
  3. To apply the theoretical knowledge and practical experience in solving practical problems.
  4. To form goals and strategies, to work out plans, programs and projects.
  5. To take part in elaboration of company, regional and national energy strategies.
  6. To realize useful contacts with their partners in Bulgaria and abroad.
  7. To plan and organize effectively their own career.
  8. To use independently varied scientific and practical information sources.


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:

  1. Designers and constructors of biofuel energy systems.
  2. Energy efficiency advisers and experts in adviser companies.
  3. Scientists and lecturers.
  4. Representatives at state and municipal administrations and at

non-governmental organizations.

  1. Private entrepreneurs.


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.
