The purpose of the Fuel Engineering & Energy Technology Program is to provide state-of-the-art education in the fields and fuel and energy utilization in the built environment by means of economically and environmentally sustainable systems and technologies. It includes the efficient utilization of coal, oil and natural gas, the generation of electricity from fossil or nuclear fuels and the refining of petroleum. Atmospheric pollution and global warming are strongly associated with the burning of fossil fuels, and the course will include ways of reducing these problems by developing more efficient and clean combustion systems and improved power generation processes.
A strong emphasis will be placed on dealing with fuel and energy engineering tasks with due consideration of technical, environmental and socio-economic issues. Advanced methods will be applied to identify, describe, quantify and find solutions to diverse range of engineering problem. Future energy system and energy use scenarios will be discussed, with a focus on promoting the use of renewable energy resources and technologies. Reducing climate variability is one of the major challenges facing both industrialized nations and developing ones as our energy consumption increase globally. The job of the Fuel and Energy Engineering is to see that all types of the fuels are produced with the required properties for efficient combustion for the generation of energy that is used wisely, without environmental damage or waste.
