This face to face session has been designed by the Large Scale Power Generation team from Cardiff University’s School of Engineering, and is aimed at individuals working or interested in working in the field of combustion.

The Nature of Fuels is a 1 credit CPD module, accredited to level 4 of the Credit and Qualifications Framework for Wales. The course is fully funded for people living or working within Welsh Convergence areas.
