Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The course focuses on the analysis of energy resources, their ecological exploitation, valuation, the heat, the heating of materials and categorization of selected thermal equipment, including accessories. The intention is to solve the energy problems in terms of energy, economic and environmental.

Teaching methods



The subjekt is focused on energy resources and their utilization, classification of fuels, principal fuels characteristics and fuels assessing. A part of the subject involves heat transfer in furnaces and heat installations and their accessories. Heat installations, metal reheating and optimization.Energy balances.
