Module content
Practical classes:

The projects are usually carried out in groups. First, a group discusses the problem (brainstorming) than after the discussion with the supervisior, each student should fulfill a certain task. One report for a group is prepared, including the following: idea, all proposals of solution, the realised solution, obtained data/figures,, conclusioins. Laboratory or project depending on Research Group chosen by the student:
The course will focus on introducing students to: (i) either project, or (ii) laboratory research. Depending on the chosen Research Group, the students will have to carry out short research projects either in laboratory, computer laboratory or by preparing a project.
There are several Student Research Groups at Faculty of Fuels and Energy: Solaris, Feniks, RedoX, Ignis, Green Energy, EcoEnergy, Coal&Clay. Depending on the field of their interest students may carry out chemical/physical experiments and computer/model calculations. Each professor may offer a subject for students to study within one of Research Groups. A student may also propose her/his own subject and if the faculty equipment allow its realisation, she/he will be given oportunity to test her/his idea.
A group of students prepare a final report of experiments or calculations and a short presentation reporting the results. The group chooses a leader who is responsible for allocating and controlling tasks of other members of the groups. Each of the students in a group is responsible for the definite part of the report and the presentation. The students give an opinion on technological maturity of the researched problem and discuss the possibility of industrial implementation of project. The students have to give their opinion on ethical and ecological consequences of possible industrial implementation. The presentation is accompanied by the discussion with other students.

Additional information
Method of calculating the final grade:

Grading formula: FG= PMWFreport *PMGreport+ PMWFpres * PMGpres
Where:
• FG-final grade
• PMWFreport – report part weighting factor – 0,6
• PMGreport– Grade of achieved LOs relevant to report
• PMWFpres – presentation part weighting factor – 0,4
• PMGpres – Grade of achieved LOs relevant to presentation

All LO weighting factors associated with part of the module (PM) equal 1.

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

Depending on the research topic.
Basic knowledge of chemical and energy engineering and basic English.
