Power Engineering and Process Engineering
Tutor: prof. Ing. Michal Kolovratník, CSc.
- Power Engineering
Power Engineering provides deeper knowledge of heat transfer, mass transfer, fluid mechanics and energy transformation. This field of study trains experts both for the sphere of conventional and nuclear power engineering and renewable energy sources. The field is oriented on creation of projects, design and operation of power engineering machines and equipment for conventional and nuclear power plants, refrigeration technology and heat pumps, equipment for exploitation of renewable energy sources and pneumatic and hydraulic machines. Naturally, there is also an emphasis on increase of effectivity, economic and environmental aspects of energy transformations. The graduates find jobs in development, research and design departments, as heads of power engineering departments in power plants, in the state administration and in the sphere of power engineering consultancy and audits.
- Process Engineering
Process Engineering provides an extension of theoretical fundamentals by professional disciplines focused on transfer of momentum, heat and mass and on physical chemistry. Among the characteristic and profile courses are hydromechanics, thermal and diffusion separation processes and reactors and also courses focused on deeper knowledge of flexibility and strength of materials and mechanics. An integral part of the curriculum is protection of the environment focused on sewage and gas treatment. Graduates are led to systematic designing and technical-economic assessment of process options, concepts of manufacturing lines and detail solutions of each machine and equipment system. They master designing and performing strength calculations of pressure equipment and creating concepts of production lines. A significant piece of knowledge the students gain is the use of computer technology in scientific and engineering calculations, collection of experimental data, control or process simulation, computer-aided designing with CAD methods, creating projects and utilization of computer networks.
