Course Description

Course Profile

The MSc programme "Energy Transition" offered by the Faculty of Energy and Fuels AGH University of Science and Technology focuses on the important aspect of energy  industry – its transition from traditional fossil based to use of renewable and other clean energy forms. As fossil fuels produce a lot of pollutants, among them CO2, and thus are made responsible for degradation of environment and climatic changes, new and modern technologies are necessary – Energy Transition. Along these lines new specialists will be educated who do not only understand but may also apply and further develop methods which may use not only coal to produce energy but also other solid fuels, such as biomass, or alternative fuels such as shale gas. Such specialists will have knowledge in energy technologies and processes of sector’s transition. The program focuses on modern energy technologies, with special stress laid on renewable energy, advanced clean coal technologies, gasification of coal and biomass, catalytic technologies of fuel processing, environmental protection, etc. Additionally, courses on planning and forecasting in energy systems, energy policy, sustainable energy development, renewable energy and fuel cells etc. are offered.

As in recent time we are witnessing increasing application of information technologies and artificial intelligence which are indispensable for creation of the graduate of all desirable competences, the students will also be offered courses aiming at gaining the basic digitalisation skills.

The program aims at preparing a graduate to be at the forefront of the processes of Energy Transition. With the aid of dedicated courses, the student can gain good technological knowledge, as well as team work abilities, research and management skills. It will allow him/her to lead energy transition processes as well as analyse them at different levels. In this way he/she will be able to open new technology routes in his future professional carrier.
