Message from the Programme Coordinators:

The development of civilisation is linked inextricably with growing demand for electricity. Thus, the still-rapid increase in the level of utilisation of natural resources, including fossil fuels, leaves it more and more urgent that conventional energy technologies and the potential of the renewable energy sources be made subject to re-evaluation. It is estimated that during the last 200 years, more than 50% of the available natural resources have been put to use. Equally, if economic forecasts prove accurate, for at least several more decades, oil, natural gas and coal will still constitute  the basic primary energy sources. The alternative solution represented by nuclear energy remains a cause of considerable public concern, while the potential for using renewable energy sources is seen to be very much dependent on local environmental conditions. For this reason, it is necessary to emphasise the impact of research that focuses on further sharpening-up of energy efficiency, as well as actions aimed at increasing society’s awareness of the relevant issues.
The study program of the Energy and Environmental Engineering course is prepared in a way that allows students to develop their knowledge and improve their skills. This is realised by the proper design of the study program. The proposed study program is developed based on the long-time experience of academic staff from the AGH University of Science and Technology and the Shibaura Institute of Technology.
The study program is inspired by the best Polish, Japanese and international study programs, as well as Polish and European Qualification Frameworks. Broad social consultations with top companies from the field of engineering, with academic staff, and with students also have an impact on the program.
In line with global trends, we create new interdisciplinary programme of study, which is indispensable for a proper development of science, technology and economy of our countries.
This joint second-cycle (Master) Degree Programme of the Energy and Environmental Engineering will inspire you!
