The EWEM - European Wind Energy Master aims to educate 120-150 MSc graduates per year in Wind Energy technology, covering the top 1-2% global demand of Wind Energy professionals with post-graduate education. The study is an MSc degree in engineering, lasting two years, where students are awarded a double-degree in engineering from two of the host institutions.
EWEM is an advanced MSc for elite cohorts of students, with four specializations that follow the energy conversion chain:
The European Wind Energy Master consortium is composed of four Universities, world leaders in Wind Energy and Offshore Wind Energy research and education:
The students, depending on the choice of specialization, will spend different semesters at the different partner universities, benefiting from a range of expert lecturers and a truly international education
The EWEM programme 2013-2015 will start in September 2013. Student applications will open in September 2012.
Wind energy jobs in Europe are expected to grow from the current 200.000 to 450.000 by 2020. The global growth will be even faster. Global Wind Energy jobs are expected to double every 10 years. The technological demands of larger wind turbines, wind farms, penetration in the electricity grid, increasing of the complexity and the required performance need new solutions.
Therefore, graduates with an MSc in Wind Energy have outstanding career opportunities. As a graduate, you are on the leading edge of this very new, exciting and expanding field. EWEM prepares these graduates for a career both in industry and in academia.
The relevant of the vast network of EWEM associated partners guarantees that students and graduates have a high visibility with the largest players in Wind Energy.
EWEM cooperates with the most relevant wind energy partners, ranging wind energy associations, wind turbine manufacturers, (offshore) wind farm developers, R&D institutions, utilities and other players in the wind energy value chain. These partners also offer graduates opportunities to start a career in the Wind Energy sector.
In addition, an EWEM graduate will receive a double diploma in wind energy and engineering , awarded by two of the host universities. Therefore career prospects in the following sectors are also possible: Aerospace Engineering, Physics, Offshore engineering, Renewable Energy, Energy Systems, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, etc.
Four tracks of specialization: the EWEM is divided in four tracks (specializations), along the energy conversion chain: Wind Physics, Rotor Design, Electric Power Systems and Offshore Engineering, transversally connected by its application to Wind Energy Technology. A schematic representation of the structure of the programme is presented below.
Didactic approach: the student builds the specific knowledge of the MSc track and profile through courses, practical courses and assignments/projects, complemented by a directed internship and a supervised final MSc project. The consolidation of the theoretical content is made by a range of experimental and computational assignments.
To expose the student to the state-of-the-art and new challenges in Wind Energy, the programme is complemented by the EWEM Summer School event, regular EWEM Symposia by guest lecturers from associated partners and the EWEM Innovation and Entrepreneurship Workshop.
EWEM track structure: each EWEM is a two-year joint programme (120 ECTS) with seven distinct elements:
What is required to be considered for admission to an MSc programme? Please note: if you do not meet all the formal requirements, it is no use applying.
1)A. A good university Bachelor's degree in a main subject closely related to the MSc programme to which you are applying, with good grades on the key courses.
orB. A proof that you have nearly completed a Bachelor's programme in a main subject which is closely related to the MSc programme to which you are applying, with good grades on the key courses.
Exceptions: Management of Technology, Engineering and Policy Analysis and Science Education & Communication, to which all students holding any Bachelors of technology or science / engineering degree may be admitted.
2)A Bachelor's Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of at least 75% of the scale maximum, unless specific requirements are defined for the country in which you obtained your Bachelors degree:
Please note: if you have not graduated yet your CGPA must meet the requirements at the time of application.
3)Proof of English language proficiency:
Only nationals from the USA, U.K., Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and Canada are exempt from the proof of English language proficiency requirement. Applicants who obtained a bachelors degree in one of the mentioned countries, are also exempt from the proof of English language proficiency requirement.
Certificates older than two years are not accepted. As the whole process of collecting information, registering for the tests and receiving the test results may take several months, we advise you to register for the IELTS or TOEFL several months before starting your application.
It is allowed to send us a copy of your test results, please check the application documents for detailed information.
4)A clear and relevant essay in English (1,000 - 2,000 words) addressing the following:Your motivation for taking the MSc programme of your choice.
5)Two reference letters in English, French, German or Dutch:
If you have not yet graduated or do not have work experience, you need to provide two letters from professors or assistant professors from the faculty at which you are studying.
6)An extensive résumé (curriculum vitae) written in English.
7)Proof of identity
8)Please note:Applicants for Architecture Urbanism & Building Sciences, Design for Interaction, Integrated Product Design and Strategic Product Design are required to upload a digital portfolio. Please note that only uploaded portfolios will be processed. The programme specific portfolio requirements are described on the following pages:
|CAE score:||60 (Grade C)|
|TOEFL iBT® test:||90|
