Branch detail

Fluid Engineering


Original title in Czech: Fluidní inženýrství
Abbreviation: M-FLI
Specialisation: -
Length of Study: 2 years
Programme: Mechanical Engineering
Faculty: Faculty of Mechanical Engineering
Academic year: 2017/2018
Accredited from: 1.9.2003
Accredited until: 31.12.2020
Profile of the branch:
Preparation of the high level technicians and experts is the goal of the master study program in branch of Fluid Engineering. The students, graduated in this branch, will be able self-reliantly solve all problems of fluid mechanics. Some examples of fields where they could work are listed below:
Hydro-Power – efficient and environmentally friendly utilizing of the electric power. Hydro-power is the renewable source of energy. Graduated students can prove themselves as designers of hydro-turbines and their accessories.
Supply of fluid – design of pumps to supply the fluids and multiphase mixtures. Design of pump stations and pipe-line nets with maximum efficiency and operational reliability. Solution of pump rotordynamics and pipe-line net dynamics. Solution of a water hammer. Waste Water Treatment Plants and Water Treatment Plants – current problem which is related to our environment. Design of the mechanical and technological equipment of the Waste Water Treatment Plants and Water Treatment Plants.
High pressure hydraulics – solution of high-pressure hydraulic circuits. Design and mathematical modeling of these circuits. Design of hydraulic elements. Tribology – problems of lubrication.
The students have the opportunity to gain deep theoretical knowledge in branch of fluid flow, hydraulic power plants, waste water treatment plants, water treatment plants and pump stations operation. The students will work in the Heavy Laboratory of the department and will have the opportunity to take part in the educational excursion to the hydro power plants, which is organized every year before the winter semester beginning. The students also gain the basic skill of CFD software used for fluid flow simulation.

Occupational profiles of graduates with examples:
The fluid engineering is a very broad field, which provides extensive possibilities for the future choice of jobs ranging from design of a rotating machinery to operating technicians in waste water treatment plants, water power plants and water purification plants. The graduates can also find jobs as designers of pneumatic and hydraulic elements and in biomedical engineering.
The best students are offered to enter a postgradual course. They are being prepared to work in the fields of science and research. They have possibility to use top laboratory, hardware and software equipment. Results of their scientific work are presented on conferences and seminars.
