GENERAL INFORMATION

 

For many years the Institute of Turbomachinery has provided the diploma specialization in Power and Energy Generating Systems, Machines and Installations within the Mechanics and Machine Design branch of studies at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering.

 

In the academic year 2003/2004 the Institute extended its didactic activities and started a new branch of studies - Power Engineering. This new branch of studies is an answer to the demand of industry for specialists in this field. The following companies are interested in employment of our graduates; Alstom Elbląg (gas and steam turbines), WSK PZL Rzeszów Pratt & Whitney (airplane engines), PKN ORLEN (compressors and turbines), as well as municipal power plants, construction and food industries and companies dealing with manufacturing and distribution of modern cooling, ventilation and air-conditioning systems. Numerous world renown companies such as: General Electric, Siemens, Dalkia, and other well-established R&D centers  and plants offer attractive trainings and jobs to our graduates.

Since the academic year 2007/2008 the programme of studies for Power Engineering has been developed on the basis of the Bologna Declaration resolutions: first cycle course (BSc) and second cycle course (MSc) in two specializations: Turbomachinery and Cooling & Air Conditioning. The programme of these studies complies with the needs the modern power generation has to satisfy, covering the issues of renewable energy sources and environment protection in particular.

Depending on the selected specialization, our students can study new technologies in the field of design and performance of turbomachines – steam and gas turbines, aircraft engines, compressors, pumps and new technologies in the field of design and performance of refrigeration, air conditioning and ventilation devices. Students have access to well equipped didactic and research laboratories, computer rooms, up-to-date software applied in industrial designing by professionals.

The course covers various topics, for instance, compressors, steam and gas turbines, conventional and nuclear power plants, turboengines (including aircraft engines), combustion technologies and fuels, renewable energy resources – as regards the Systems and Machines for Power Engineering specialization or, for example, fundamentals of heat technology, refrigerating apparatus and installations, air conditioning and ventilation installations, heating technology, criotechnology in the case of the Cooling and Air Conditioning Systems specialization.

The Institute conducts basic courses (fundamentals of metrology, fluid mechanics), specialist courses, as well as project and diploma thesis tutoring for all kinds of studies  (BSc, MSc and PhD) and all specializations and branches of studies (Technique and Commerce, Medical Apparatus and Equipment, Management and Production Engineering, Papermaking and Paper Machines, Automatics and Robotics, Transport) at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering.

 We also cooperate with other faculties in the field of didactics, namely:

Ø       Faculty of Civil Engineering, Architecture and Environmental Engineering,

Ø       Faculty of Electric and Electronic Engineering, and 

Ø       Faculty of Organization and Management.

Our academic teachers conduct classes in English and French to students of the International Faculty of Engineering, Technical University of Lodz as well.    

The Institute of Turbomachinery organizes students and teachers exchange with the West Bohemian State University in Pilzen, Czech Republic, within the SOCRATES/ERASMUS programme as well as with numerous universities in Western Europe within faculty agreements (Coventry University, Great Britain, Aachen, Germany, Ghant, Belgium) and organizes IASTE summer trainings for foreign students and sends our students to foreign R&D centres in Europe and USA.  For several years already, we have organized trainings for students from the State Technical University of St. Petersburg, Russia, Cranfield University Great Britain),.

Prof. Dorota Kozanecka is the head of the Postgraduate Studies "Machine Design and Operation" at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, TUL. The PhD studies are the third cycle studies according to the Bologna Declaration resolutions. The studies help prepare the dissertation and to obtain the title of doctor of science to young scientists who choose an academic career as well as to those industry-based researchers who can see a possibility to develop scientific ambitions and to obtain  a scientific title. Experienced scientists from the Institute of Turbomachinery offer their assistance as supervisors for PhD students that want to deal with  power generation and biomedical engineering.
