Purpose of study
Studies in the specialty of Gas Technology and Renewable Energy are addressed to people who are interested in working in companies in the gas and energy sector, dealing with thermal energy, gas technologies with particular emphasis on natural gas and other combustible gases.
The knowledge gained during the studies will perfectly prepare the staff for the reconstruction of the Polish power industry and will enable understanding of the use of renewable energy in an economical way – supported by natural gas.
The order of the moment and the most important economic activity for Poland in the coming years is to base the energy development on increasing the consumption of natural gas. From a large professional power industry, based on CCGT (Combined Cycle Gas Turbine) steam-gas blocks to cogeneration systems, based on gas engines, it is the most important direction of its development in Europe and Poland. It should be supported by solar, wind and geothermal energy.
Renewable energy has disadvantages, it is difficult to apply due to the instability of production and costs, but in cooperation with gas technologies, which causes a price reduction – very promising.
The Laboratory of Gas Technologies (LTG) at the Poznan University of Technology, in which laboratory classes will take place, is equipped with research equipment and measurement stands with a value exceeding 5 million PLN. Thanks to cooperation with Polish and international gas companies, LTG employees are qualified to run the Gas Technology and Renewable Energy specialties at the highest possible level.
Lectures, classes and laboratories, held partly in modern industrial plants, will be run by Poznan University of Technology employees associated with the Laboratory of Gas Technology, outstanding employees of the leading Polish academic centers, including Institute of Fluid Flow Machinery PAS and foreign institutions: Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm (Sweden), CIC biomaGUNE Center for Cooperative Research in Biomaterials (Spain), Technical University Munich (Germany), Helmholtz Center Potsdam GFZ German Research Center for Geosciences (Germany) and professionals from gas companies such as: PGNiG, Wielkopolska Spółka Gazownictwa and Krio Odolanów.
