university in China.
The Institute for Thermal Power Engineering (ITPE)
of Zhejiang University of China was developed from
former Energy Research Institute of the same university.
At present, about 50 staffs are employed by ITPE
for education and research purposes, which including
1 academician, 23 full professors, 15 associate
professors and senior engineer. ITPE provides M.A.Sc.
program and Ph.D. program in the area of Thermal
Science and Engineering. There are The Clean Energy

in ITPE. Each year there are over 40 Ph.D. students
and about 50 Master students to do their degree
work in ITPE. The institute also provides Post Doctorate
program. Anyone who got a Doctorate degree from
the recognized institutions can apply Post Doctorate

as well as the industry. The international cooperative
research and development of ITPE is also very
active. Several cooperation projects from the
United Nations, USA, Canada, Switzerland, Japan
and Korea have been finished. There are six divisions:
Coal Water Slurry Combustion Division; Fluidized
Bed Combustion/Gasification and Sludge Incineration
Division; Pulverized Coal Combustion Division;
Automatic Control and Instrumentation Division;
Engineering Multiphase Flow Division and Waste
