Description: 
Field of study: Mechanical Engineering of Power Machines
 
Specialization: Refrigeration and Cryogenics
 
A graduate has the detailed knowledge of devices and installations dedicated for cooling down to -150°C and, in the case of cryogenics, for temperature lowering below 120 K and down to fractions of Kelvin. He or she has the skills in the designing, implementing and operation of both refrigerating and cryocooling systems. Additionally, a graduate can apply creatively modern design methods and is well prepared for undertaking Ph.D. studies.

JOB PROSPECTS
The graduates of the Refrigeration and Cryogenics programme will be prepared to work in all industrial branches that apply refrigeration and cryogenic technologies.
In particular, our graduates will have a good base to: 
» design modern refrigeration and cryogenic units and installations, 
» create new solutions and methods of temperature lowering, 
» supervise the work in food cold stores, refrigeration and air conditioning installations, air rectification and technical gas production plants, natural gas liquefaction plants and other refrigeration and cryogenic systems.
