The European Wind Energy Master (EWEM) aims to educate 120-150 MSc graduates per year, covering the top 1-2% global demand of Wind Energy professionals with post-graduate education.

EWEM is an advanced MSc for elite cohorts of students, with four specializations that follow the energy conversion chain:

  • Wind Physics
  • Rotor Design
  • Electric Power Systems
  • Offshore Engineering

EWEM is a 2 year (120 ECTS) master course. The joint first semester and the specific multi-disciplinary and project-oriented teaching will give the student the ability to transfer knowledge and competences beyond his/her specialisation and to embed design choices in a sociotechnical context. The student acquires knowledge in theoretical and applied sciences underlying wind energy systems, and specific competencies necessary to operate in the chosen area of specialization.

The European Wind Energy Master consortium is composed of four Universities, world leaders in Wind Energy and Offshore Wind Energy research and education:

  • Delft University of Technology (coordinator)
  • Technical University of Denmark
  • Norwegian University of Science and Technology
  • Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg
