Renewable energy sources
After this major, graduates will be able to design, analyze, study and optimize energy installations that use green solutions.
The direction is future-oriented if only because the widespread use of renewable energy sources is a priority of the European Union (and yet not only). Specialists predict that the job market for "green" energy experts will grow and grow.
At the Faculty of Mechanical and Power Engineering, engineering studies with this profile are already being conducted from 2020. Upon completion, resumes can be submitted to:
- companies that generate, transmit and distribute electricity, heat or other energy carriers;
- installation, production and repair companies in the thermal power, electric power, refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump industries.
The degree program offers opportunities for study trips to the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), the European Space Agency (ESA) or the ITER project to build an experimental thermonuclear reactor, among others. The university has prepared 30 places.
Aviation and aerospace
The master's degree program in aviation and aerospace engineering will cover topics related to: artificial intelligence, mechatronics, applied mathematics, analytical mechanics and celestial mechanics. Students will be able to focus on either unmanned aerial vehicles or aerospace engineering.
Aerospace - according to all statistical surveys - is one of the more growing industries today.
In our country alone, according to the Sectoral Competence Council for the Aerospace Industry at Wroclaw University of Science and Technology, in 2021 the aerospace industry will directly employ some 67,000 people and contribute another 176,000 jobs.
The Polish Industrial Development Agency, on the other hand, indicates that in 2022 there were nearly 27,000 aviation-related companies, ranging from microenterprises to large multinationals. Many of them operate within clusters, such as our Lower Silesian Aviation Cluster.
Graduates will thus be able to find jobs in:
- aviation transport systems;
- production and repair facilities (in design, development of technological processes, production supervision or technical acceptance);
- construction and design offices;
- scientific and research institutions (in aerospace institutes).
There are 30 places available for candidates.
The Faculty of Environmental Engineering has prepared a direction for future specialists in the areas of renewable energy systems and energy storage, sustainable development, climate change adaptation and mitigation, environmentally friendly transportation, and reducing the environmental impact of industry and agriculture.
This direction responds to the challenge of achieving global climate neutrality, which will not be possible without the so-called green transition. This is what the European Union's policy, strategy and regulations for environmental, energy and climate goals up to 2050 (European Green Deal) are aiming for.
Graduates of climate neutrality will be able to seek jobs in almost all sectors of the economy, businesses and public administration. 60 places have been prepared.
