In an interview with BalticWind.EU Małgorzata Sikora, PhD, Eng., Professor of the Koszalin University of Technology, talks about the university’s plans, educational offer, and cooperation with companies in the energy sector. The commentary was originally published in “BalticWind.EU Quarterly Country Report Poland Q1 2022″.
Prof. Sikora says that the offer of the Koszalin University of Technology is very comprehensive. It provides education for engineers, managers, and executives. The Polish University offers studies in power engineering, mechanics, automatics and electronics, as well as in climate protection, management, or logistics. Specialists in all these fields are necessary for the functioning of the offshore wind energy sector.
Currently, several hundred students undertake several majors. The first one is “Power Engineering”, where two specialisations are offered – Electrical Power Engineering and Renewable Energy Sources (1st degree – 88 students), and Conventional Power Engineering, Energy Systems and Sustainable Power Engineering Development (2nd degree – 22 students). The second course is „Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering”. On the first degree studies 111 students are educated, who can choose three specialties – design of machinery and equipment, manufacturing process engineering, and quality engineering. In the second degree studies, currently 19 students are being educated on the specialties of operation of vehicles and working machines and integrated design and manufacturing systems as well as automation and robotization of production processes.
The third course is „Production Management and Engineering”. During the first degree studies 57 students are educated on the specialties: logistics process engineer, computer techniques in production engineering, product manager. In the second degree 12 students are studying, who can choose two specialisations: optimization of production processes, project management, transport management and operations management.
Another major is „Electronics and Telecommunications”, where a total of 44 students follow this study programme. At the first degree there are specialisations in automation systems and electronic and telecommunication systems, at the second degree – electronics of control systems, consumer electronics and telecommunication systems and networks.
