European Cryogenics Course 2020

News > Announcements | February 29th, 2020

The application for the European Cryogenics Course (ECC) 2020 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.
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 weekends are foreseen mainly for social activities and travel.
The course will finish with two written examinations concerning the two main subjects (cryogenics, fundamentals and processes).

The ECC will extend over 3 weeks during Summer 2020 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.

Locations and dates will be:
Aug. 10th  - 14th, 2020   Dresden - Basics, liquid hydrogen technology
Aug. 17th  - 21st, 2020   Wroclaw - Helium cryogenics, cryostat technology
Aug. 24th  - 28th, 2020   Trondheim - Liquified natural gas, coolers.
In case that not the full period of three weeks can be made available by a prospective participant, individual solutions can be arranged.

Detailed information about the application process and the program of the course may be found on the flyer or at the dedicated webpage.

You may use moreover the enclosed flyer to inform potentially interested persons.
Since 2008 the ECC collects  participants from all over Europe.

For interested young professionals often a sponsorship arrangement could be agreed with the respective employer to allow an additional participation.  

Applications should be sent until end of April. Later applications can be regarded only in case of remaining places or by waiting list. The course usually is overbooked, therefore early applications are suggested. For the same reason, fitting pre-requisitions and a specific cryogenic interest should be demonstrated.
