PK8452 - Hydrogen energy technologies (autumn semester)

This is an interdisciplinary PhD course offered by NTNU. The course will be offered for the first time during the autumn of 2023, and the registration deadline for external candidates is 15 September. The course runs every autumn semester. 

The course entails a minimum of seven seminars, of which all but two can be followed online. The students must be present in person for at least two seminars: the first and the last. The evaluation (pass/not pass) will be based on a mandatory presentation the students give in the last seminar.

This course addresses the increasing demand for education on hydrogen technologies. The course provides an overview on the entire hydrogen value chain, and elaborates on the issues that must be tackled to enhance that deployment of hydrogen technologies in different industrial sectors. Main themes include production, storage, transportation, materials, utilisation and safety.

You will be exempted from paying the semester fee if:

  • you are waiting to be admitted to the PhD programme at NTNU.

  • you are admitted to a PhD programme at another educational institution, or

  • you have paid the semester fee at another Norwegian university.

TEK9390 – Hydrogen technology (autumn semester)

This PhD course is offered by UiO. The registration deadline is 1 August for visiting students, and 1 September for internal participants from UiO.

The lectures take place every Friday from semester start in August to 17 November, with oral exam in December. The students are expected to be physically present in the lectures.

Hydrogen is a low-carbon, versatile energy vector which can play an important role in the transition towards sustainable societies based on renewable energy sources. This course addresses the current status and future prospects of automotive, stationary and consumer applications based on hydrogen technologies. The lectures address the physical and chemical properties of hydrogen, with particular focus on the chemical flexibility of this element in interactions with matter. Various technical challenges related to hydrogen production, distribution, utilization, storage and safety will be discussed and presented from the energy system perspective.
