Power Engineering


Undergraduate program

The graduate of Power Engineering programme receives a profound education in the area of thermal engineering, electric power engineering, information technologies, and economics. This education provides knowledge and skills that are required for sustainable development, ecological production, transmission, and distribution of electricity. He/she is prepared for creative work concerned with the design, commissioning, and operation of power systems, as well as energy production, conversion, transmission and distribution.

  • Sample modules/Keywords:

During the first year the effort is focused on mathematics, physics, mechanics, thermodynamics and computer science. The students learn also electric circuits, foreign language and non-technical subject (mostly economy). The core subjects for the second year are fundamentals of mechanical design, control engineering and foreign language. The students of power engineering learn advanced thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer theory of heat machines, electric machines, electronics, fundamentals of combustion processes and fuels, theory of flow machines, electric power systems. The third year is again more specialized. In the third year of Power Engineering students learn thermal power systems, energy sources and energy conversion, technologies of environmental protection, re-newable energy systems, control of heat processes, they also learn about turbines, pumps, steam boilers, reciprocating engines and heat pumps. The last half of the year in 3.5 years program is devoted to the supervised work on engineering diploma thesis.

  • Objectives:

The objectives of the study is to create the solid fundamental engineering knowledge during the first year of the study, then learn deeply the problems devoted to the subject of the study. The graduates are prepared to work in industry and to solve engineering problems. At first the aforementioned abilities should be proved in the diploma thesis where a given problem must be solved and the work must be documented and explained. Each diploma thesis is reviewed by 2 reviewers and is defended in the presence of commission consisting of professors and assistant professors.

Graduate program

The graduate is prepared for creative work and research within the field of control of processes occurring in power industry and related industries, energy conversion processes in power machines and equipment, as well as for conducting modernisation of machines and the implementation of new technologies, establishing small enterprises and their management. He/she is prepared to undertake third-degree studies (PhD studies) in power engineering and in related fields.

  • Sample modules/Keywords:

A graduate of postgraduate studies is recognized as highly qualified specialist. In each of the program student learn the advanced theory and engineering methods. They learn about recent achievements in the field of their study and the methods and tools that prepare them for taking management positions in industry, or to undertake the research activity. The third semester of the 3-semester-study is devoted to the solution to a research problem. The problem statement and solution are put into the master diploma thesis.

  • Objectives:

The objectives of the study is to gain the skills allowing for the independent and creative analysis of advanced engineering problems. The graduates are prepared not only for the work in industry but also for solving the research problems. Each diploma thesis is reviewed by 2 reviewers and is defended in the presence of commission consisting of professors and assistant professors.
