Environmental engineering is a programme of follow-up Master’s study that educates experts in the field of construction, design and operation of ventilation, air conditioning and heating equipment, equipment for creating an optimal indoor environment and energy-saving solutions. Long-term stay in buildings has a growing trend; today, it is on average, 90% of the time, according to the NIPH study, which amplifies the impact of the internal environment on human health. The quality of the indoor environment is associated with the occurrence of allergies and some other problems associated with hyperreactivity and respiratory infections. Graduates find employment in local and foreign companies, such as Honeywell, Emerson Climate Technology, SINCLAIR Global Group, GEA, Korado, Janka Radotín, ZVVZ Milevsko, Dakon, Tenza and in several smaller companies, focusing on both environmental technology and also on energy engineering. Moreover, they find employment in institutions for environmental protection and also as independent entrepreneurs.
Research activities are focused on comprehensive research and development of the indoor environment in industrial and residential buildings and the car cabins and other vehicles. These include ventilation systems, energy consumption for heating and air conditioning, thermal comfort, human comfort, etc. In the automotive sector, there is significant cooperation with Škoda Auto and Volkswagen, in the field of heat pumps with Honeywell or SINCLAIR Global Group and the field of compressors for air conditioning. We have long-term cooperation with Emerson Climate Technology. Research on the human respiratory tract and the transport and deposition of aerosols in collaboration with Honeywell Life Sciences is also related to environmental engineering. Extensive research into the atomization of liquids and spray and nozzle systems is also being carried out. Research at our workplace is carried out using comprehensive experimental research in combination with advanced methods of mathematical modelling.
