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.
