European Course of Cryogenics 2019
News > Announcements | April 9th, 2019
The application for the European Cryogenics Course (ECC) 2019 is now open. The Course is organized by the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Technical University of Dresden (TUD) / Germany, the Faculty of Mechanical and Power Engineering of the Wroclaw University of Science and Technology (WUST) / Poland and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) of Trondheim / Norway.
The ECC will extend over 3 weeks during Summer 2019 and is open to all graduate and doctoral students. Due to the limited capacity interested students should apply for participating before the end of April.
From the 19th to the 23rd of August the TU Dresden will host the first part of the Course focused on "Basics, liquid hydrogen technology". The second part of the Course will take place from the 26th to the 30th of August at the Wroclaw University in Poland and will deal with "Helium cryogenics and cryostat technology". Finally, between the 2nd and the 6th of September the NTNU of Trondheim, Norway will offer a Course on "Liquified natural gas and coolers".
Lecturers are members of the organizing universities and a number of invited
external experts. In addition to the lessons, the program of the ECC includes technical excursions, tutorials and demonstrations. The course will finish with two written examinations concerning the two main subjects (cryogenics, fundamentals and processes).
Detailed information about the application process and the program of the
Course may be found on the flyer or at the dedicated webpage.
