The European Wind Energy Master (EWEM) aims to educate at least 50-60 MSc graduates per year, covering the top 0.5% 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:
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 world leading universities in wind energy and offshore wind energy research and education:
The EWEM prepares graduates for a career in research, both in industry and in academia, and is closely linked to the partners’ research, in particular the large wind energy PhD cohort of the four partner universities, of over 130 PhD students.
EWEM proceeds with support of the Erasmus Mundus programme of the European Union.
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.
To expose the student to the state-of-the-art and new challenges in Wind Energy, the programme is complemented by the EWEM Summer/Spring school event, regular EWEM guest lectures and symposia by guest lecturers from associated partners.
EWEM track structure: each EWEM is a two-year joint programme (120 ECTS) with seven distinct elements:

You only need to take one of these language tests:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00.

The CAE test – or the Cambridge Advanced English – is an exam for applicants who wish to get a Certificate in Advanced English. To receive the Advanced certificate, test-takers must score between 142 and 210 on the Cambridge English: Advanced test. Read more about CAE.
Note: degree programmes and applications may require a more specific minimum score for admission.
The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).
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.
Please note: if you have not graduated yet your CGPA must meet the requirements at the time of application.
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.
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.
The Erasmus+: Erasmus Mundus Master Courses (EMMC), which sponsors the EWEM programme, offers scholarships for students. Please also visit the Erasmus Mundus website for detailed regulations of eligibility and frequently asked questions.
There are two types of student scholarships
Erasmus+ Programme Country students:Erasmus+ Programme Country students are from the 28 EU Member States and also include Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland, Turkey and The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Students whose nationality is one of the Erasmus+ Programme Countries count as Programme Country students.
Erasmus+ Partner Country students:
Erasmus+ Partner Country students are from any other country, provided they are not currently residents of the eligible countries (above), nor have carried out their main activity (studies, work, etc.) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in one of these countries.
StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
