Within the rapidly expanding European renewable energy industry, an urgent demand exists for more post-graduate trained staff specialised in renewable energy technology. Together with leading European Universities, EUREC has developed the European Master in Renewable Energy. Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen (Hanze UAS), became member of the EUREC consortium and started this master programme in September 2012.
The aim of the European Master in Renewable Energy from Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen is to train post-graduate students to fill the gap between the growing industry demand for specialised renewable energy expertise and the skills currently available on the job market.
By structuring the course in three sections, students are guaranteed to spend time in at least two different EU countries and make contact with a wide range of European universities and companies involved in the renewable energy sector. The participating universities are all well-established in training and research and recognised internationally for their work in the field of renewable energy technology.
The European Master in Renewable Energy is offered by EUREC in which Hanze UAS offers the core semester. This core semester has been officially accredited by the Dutch and Flemish Accreditation Orgranisation (NVAO).
The first semester the student will acquire a solid foundation in key renewable energy technologies and the socio-economic issues related to these. For the core the student can choose one of the following universities:
