Dear Sir or Madam,

Thank you for visiting our Heliocentris Academia International website. We firmly believe that you are in the right place.

The team at Heliocentris Academia International GmbH range back to its initiation in 1995, when the first educational products for teaching hydrogen and fuel cells were ever created. Since then our team of engineers, educators and makers have in close collaboration with our clients and users developed a full portfolio of products, covering solutions for middle school, high school, colleges, universities and professional industrial training centers.

 Our team has many years of experience with different types of renewable energies, energy storage solutions and full energy management systems. Our cooperation never ends with the sale itself. On the contrary. It's just starting.

 We offer Heliocentris Academia International Equipments training on place or at our company's headquarters in Berlin.
  • The courses materials included, comply with the curricula of electrical engineering departments of universities and colleges.
  • No special pre-knowledge is required: Lecturers benefit from pre-prepared lessons and course materials with sections for students and professors.
  • The course materials include topics in physics, chemistry and cover general and electrical engineering principles. 
Target Users

Our fuel cell training systems are used across various departments to cover various subject areas. They are used in the following disciplines - from Introductory to Advanced level courses:

Chemical Engineering | Mechanical Engineering | Energy Engineering | Automotive Engineering | Physical Engineering | Renewable Energy Systems | Process & Control Engineering | Power Engineering | Materials Engineering
