Major: Physics and Energy Conversion Engineering
During the two first years of study the course in PHYSICS and ENERGY CONVERSION ENGINEERING focuses on building a solid foundation in mathematics, physics and information technology as well as on consolidating and improving the knowledge of English.
As early as in the second year of studies first lectures related to Physics and Energy Conversion Engineering are given concerning such issues as environmental physics or technical thermodynamics.
Starting from the third year of studies more and more specialist subjects are introduced. These are mainly issues related to sources of renewable energy and the technical methods of their application. In addition to lectures and seminars, students have also laboratories where they learn practical operation of such devices as solar cells, solar energy collectors, fuel cells, thermal generators, lasers or heat pumps.
In the fourth year of study, while preparing for their master thesis, Physics and Energy Conversion Technology students learn the functioning (also in practical terms) of water, solar, wind, geothermal and nuclear power generation systems.
The course in PHYSICS AND ENERGY CONVERSION ENGINEERING is addressed to persons wishing to obtain a master and engineer degree in a very attractive field combining technical physics and the technology of using different forms of energy - chiefly based on renewable energy sources. This field is very highly appreciated in many EU countries, and its development and future prospects in Poland give Physics and Energy Conversion Technology students great opportunities of finding employment.
An additional advantage of the education received is building specialist engineering knowledge on solid foundations including physics, mathematics, information technology and English.
