Fuel Cell Technology Course to be held at FSEC

The 2006 Short Course on Fuel Cell Technology will be held at the Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC) in Cocoa, Florida, February 5 – 8, 2006. This course will be presented by FSEC/University of Central Florida and is co-sponsored by Scribner Associates, Inc. and the Electrochemical Society.

This new course will cover both basic and applied aspects of fuel cell technology through integrated lecture and laboratory sessions. Lectures will discuss the theory of fuel cell operation and outline the principles behind state-of-the-art diagnostic techniques. Laboratory sessions will provide hands-on training of fuel cell testing and performance evaluation.

The course is designed for scientists and engineers working in or entering the fuel cell industry; employees of industries that have recently invested or plan to invest in fuel cell technology, and science and engineering gradute students interested in the technology. It will be valuable to anyone wishing to acquire a quick working knowledge of fuel cells.
