FITech Hydrogen

Hydrogen plays an important role in the green transition from fossil fuels towards the production and use of renewable energy.

FITech Hydrogen study module brings together the educational offering from all universities of technology in Finland. It consists of 20–40 ECTS of studies. Scroll down to see courses open for application!

The study module provides a holistic understanding of the hydrogen economy and its value chain as well as related technical, economic and political questions. It considers hydrogen as a system and as part of the energy system. Hydrogen use is investigated as a part of machines and energy generation and also discussed from the perspective of different chemical products that are derivatives of hydrogen. To complete the picture, the life cycle analysis and the role of hydrogen in energy and geopolitics are also considered.

We recommend starting with the course Introduction to hydrogen economy and then moving to other courses of the module according to your interests. More information can be found on the course page.
