M.Sc. in Construction and Exploitation of Means of Transport, specialization: Gas Technology and Renewable Energy (Faculty of Transport Engineering), duration: 3 semesters, 90 ECTS points
The most important direction of energy development in the coming years is the one considered to be based on a significant increase in natural gas consumption. Particularly, in such countries as Poland, where 90% of electricity and 86% of heat is produced from the combustion of coal, increasing the use of natural gas is the most important economic activity for the next decades.
From high-power engineering based on combined cycle gas turbine unit CCGT to the distributed cogeneration systems based on gas engines is the most important direction of development of energy, not only in Europe or Poland but also in other countries.
Additionally, power based on natural gas can efficiently be supported by renewable energy such as solar, wind, and geothermal. Renewable energy sources are difficult to be used and expensive to operate, but in cooperation with natural gas technology are very promising. Lectures, exercises, and laboratories will be carried out by the staff associated with PUT – Laboratory of Gas Technology (LTG), whereas, internships will be given in modern industry natural gas companies.
A significant part of the lectures will be conducted by employees of major international research institutions such as the Technical University of Munich, Institute of Geology and Geophysics in Potsdam Germany, the Royal Institute of Technology at Stockholm. Lectures will also be conducted by outstanding employees from the best Polish academic centers.
Poznan University of Technology Gas Technology and Renewable Energy Field of study: Construction and Exploitation of Means of Transport Gas Technology Laboratory in Poznan University of Technology have well-equipped research facilities. In the LTG lab, gas technology processes are carried out for over 30 years now.
The faculty staff of the laboratory has many years of experience in scientific and research centers in very significant international-centers (the University of California, Gas Wärme Institute in Germany, the Royal Institut of Technology in Stockholm, National Laboratory in Switzerland). Due to a very wide international cooperation with Polish and international natural gas companies, the LTG is well-qualified for the good organization of studies in Gas Technologies and Renewable Energy.
