Department of Thermal Power Engineering Systems

The Department of Thermal Power Engineering Systems was opened in December 2014 on the basis of the L.A. Melentyev Institute of Energy Systems of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The department provides training for undergraduates in the program "Mathematical modeling and optimization technical and economic studies of promising and functioning thermal power plants". Leading scientists of the department have extensive experience in research, teaching and practical work, took part in the master's program developing. The program includes traditional and author courses. The implementation of the program is provided with the course material of technical, educational, scientific and methodological support of INRTU and Research Institute. Students of the Department have access to the scientific and technical library of L.A.Melentev Institute of Energy Systems with more than 75 thousand storage units, library systems of electronic publishing houses: IEEE Xplore, Willey, Elsevier, Springer and to unique computer and laboratory complexes.
