Internal Combustion Engines

Since internal combustion engines are one of the most complex and dynamic machines, studies demand multidisciplinary approach. Therefore, we at the Department of Internal Combustion Engines (ICED) dedicate ourselves to provide BSc, MSc and PhD education for the students interested to enter the field of engineering which continually grows and develops faster than ever in its 120 year long history.

The study programmes at ICED rely on fundamentals in mathematics, fluid and thermal sciences, with focusing issues on combustion, heat transfer and gas fl ow. We further provide students with in-detail knowledge and advanced approach in fields of engine process, its modelling and simulation, mixture formation, turbo charging and engine mechatronics. Acting with a sense of social and ecological responsibility, we apply special attention to lectures concerning pollutant formation and control and evaluation of alternative power sources. Study of Internal Combustion Engines is hardly imaginable without extensive laboratory practice. For this reason, we at ICED, apply special attention to practical training in instrumentation and measurement techniques in general, highlighting very interesting topics in special techniques of stationary and dynamic measurements on engines. ICED, widely recognized for development of its own high-tech measuring and acquisition equipment and application of advanced high quality instrumentation, encourages students to involve in experimentation as a basic tool in engine development.

World wide recognized practice to involve students to participate in research projects during their thesis work, use of large laboratory facilities, modern equipment, problem-solution oriented lectures and almost individual approach to each student, are some of the main benefits of studying at ICED.
