about us

One step towards a sustainable future

Pollutant emission and fossil fuel utilization greatly contribute to climate change. Due to our immense energy demand, it is impossible to switch into green energy sources immediately. Therefore, the best solution is improving our technologies and expand it towards renewable energy carriers.

Combustion is a rather challenging field since it involves chemical reactions, thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, and acoustics – all linked together. Regardless of this complexity, we are using fire for thousands of years with success.

Involving students

Teaching activity

BSc, MSc, and semester projects

The CRG is open for all students for projects and theses in the field of combustion. Due to its complexity, solid basic knowledge of heat engines and combustion is advised.

Scientific Conference of Students

There is a unique opportunity in Hungary for all university students to compete in a scientific conference in each November either alone or in a group. The national round is organized in odd years.

Teaching activity

Members of CRG are involved in teaching several subjects. These are focusing on thermodynamics and heat transfer, steam and gas turbines, combustion, measurements in energy, heat engines, diagnostics, and numerical methods.
