Gas Turbines and the Hydrogen Challenge


The course "Gas Turbines and The Hydrogen Challenge" takes place in the winter semester and consists of a mixture of academic lectures (8 lectures, 3 hours each) and invited talks (12 invited talks from a total of 4 speakers, 3 hours each) from experts from the gas turbine industry .

If you wish to attend the course, register to the the course page on the ISIS website. The course is password protected: reach one of the responsible Profs. to have access (see contact below).


The lecture notes will be shared though ISIS.

The course will be held in person, but if required we will hold some lectures online, using Zoom. The lectures will be in English. There will be no "academic quarter", the lectures start at the times given below, but there will breaks during the course.

Times may be subject to change, please check regularly the ISIS website for updates.
