Profile of the Branch
Branch covers a wide range of energy issues. It introduces students to energy policy and presents it as one of the pillars of electricity and heat production in the Czech Republic. Will enable them to assess the choice of technology used in new energy sources according to criteria for maximum energy efficiency and minimum emissions. Contributes to the improvement of the cooperation of Energy Department and Faculty of Mechanical Engineering with various institutions and workplaces in the Czech Republic and abroad, which is aimed at achieving a high level of expertise and modern equipment for research. The basic, mandatory program of study, students deepen their knowledge of the theory of fluid mechanics, heat transfer and mass transfer and combustion, and further acquaintance with the construction and operation of the basic units of power equipment such as boilers, turbines, compressors, power stations, internal combustion engines and acquires of water management in energy, air and traffic control, diagnostics and maintenance in power. Select from the compulsory optional courses focusing on one of the four specializations. For "Thermal power equipment and industrial power" elect heat, nuclear power plants or the use of secondary sources of energy, for the specialization "Alternative energy and environmental technology" then the ventilation and air conditioning, alternative and renewable energy sources and energy use of biomass and waste. The third specialization “Construction of steam boilers and heating equipment”, preparing specialists in the field of thermal calculations, design and construction of steam boilers, and is characterized by objects: a steam boiler II, materials and strength design of boiler parts and design methodology in the field. Fourth specialization “Nuclear power equipments” preparing specialists in thermal and hydraulic calculations, design and construction of nuclear power plant components and is characterized by subjects: chemistry in nuclear energetic, nuclear power equipments, manufacturing technology of nuclear components, nuclear power machinery and applied mechanics in nuclear energetic. Graduates get good jobs, and practical application, whether it is focused on the design, operation and management.
Key Learning Outcomes
Key Lerning Outcomes are Expressed in following Structure: Knowledge, Skills, General competencies
The objective of this study branch is the education of an engineer prepared for design, operation or managing work in power engineering and Energy Technology and in connected branches. In the basic, mandatory study programme, a student deepens his/her knowledge in the theory of fluid mechanics, the transfer of heat and mass and combustion and is thoroughly acquainted with the design and operation of basic units in the energy branches such as boilers, turbines, compressors, power units, combustion engines and obtains knowledge from the areas of water management in power engineering, air protection and operation, regulation, diagnostics and maintenance in power engineering.
The choice available from compulsory-optional subjects is oriented on studying one of three specializations, For the specialization “Thermal Energetic Equipment and Industrial Power Engineering”, he/she can select for example, the gas industry, the heating industry, nuclear power equipment or the use of secondary energy sources. For the specialization “Alternative Energy and Environmental Technology” subjects such as ventilation and air conditioning, alternative and renewable sources of energy or the energetic use of biomass and waste. The third specialization “The Construction of Stream Boilers and Thermal Equipment”, as a preparation of specialists in the areas of thermal calculations, with the design and construction of steam boilers, is characterized by the subjects, for example: steam boilers II, the materials and strength dimensions of boiler parts or construction methods in the branch.
General competencies:
Graduates of this branch can easily find employment and well apply themselves in practice, whether it be oriented on design, operation or management. The specialization: Thermal Power Equipment and Industrial Power Engineering, Alternative Energy and Environmental Technology, the Construction of Steam Boilers and Thermal Equipment.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples
The aim of the study is the formation of the professional profile of graduates who will work as a designer respectively as operator of power equipment with knowledge of technical, economic and environmental categories. Graduates have a very good possibility of practical application, in particular: • enterprises in power engineering, the development, design, construction, calculations, manufacturing, assembly and testing, • operation management of power plants and heating plants, • investment in construction of thermal and nuclear energetic, • institutions and government departments dealing with energy, safety and environmental management, • companies operating in the energy sector, including the possibility of an independent business (energy auditing, consulting and advisory services). Graduates can earn a degree EURING and may continue in doctoral studies full-time or distance.
