Study programme Energy Engineering

About study programme

This Master's study programme is a continuation of the bachelor study programme “Energetics and Environments”. Nevertheless, graduates of other technical programmes and fields, both from VŠB-TUO and other universities, also apply for this programme.
In the basic compulsory study programme, students deepen their knowledge of the theory of fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer and combustion and become more familiar with the construction and operation of basic power industry units such as boilers, turbines, compressors, power stations, internal combustion engines, cooling equipment, etc. Furthermore, students acquire knowledge in the field of water management in power engineering, air protection and in the field of operation, regulation, diagnostics and maintenance in power engineering.
