More information



The aim of the study programme is to deepen the knowledge essential for the activity in the global market and implementation of new technologies in the field of energy engineering, create and improve the technologies and equipment for renewable energy conversion, assess renewable energy resources and their integration into energy systems. Objectives of the programme are to train and develop knowledge and skills acquired in the first study cycle, which provide possibilities for Masters’ professional and research activity, personal development and self-expression, overall integration into modern competitive labour market; to develop skills of planning and accomplishment of experimental research, as well as summarizing and presenting its results; to develop skills of designing, modeling and analysis of technologies of renewable energy, which are essential for self-dependent work.
Programme Specializations: Heat and Energy Conversion, Mechanical Energy Conversion, Biological and Chemical Energy Conversion, Evaluation of Environmental Impact

Graduates will be able:
• to understand technologies of energy conversation and their impact on the environment;
• to conduct the analysis of energy sources and implementation of renewable energy projects;
• to analyse and assess renewable energy sources and technologies as well as possibilities of their application in energetics;
• to investigate the processes of energy exchange, assess their energetic effectiveness and sustainability factors;
• to analyse and assess the processes of energy conversion using common and renewable energy sources, as well as the reliability of energy production, supply and distribution;
• to create and improve technologies and processes of energy conversion with the aim to increase energetic effectiveness and reduce negative influence on the environment.
