At NUI Galway, we believe that the best learning takes place when you apply what you learn in a real world context. That's why many of our courses include work placements or community projects.
The Combustion Institute (the professional organisation for people interested in all aspects of the combustion process) - has a small headquarter in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvannia) can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The European Sections are federated and are resposible inter alia for the European Combustion Meetings. The French Groupement Français de Combustion, German, British and Italian Sections are particularly prominent.
