About

Join this programme to make a positive footprint in an interconnected and sustainable world. As wind power development increases its geographic distribution, project size and complexity, there is a even greater need for professional managers to lead interdisciplinary wind power projects to successful completion. 

The one-year Master Programme in Wind Power Project Management from Uppsala University is designed to prepare students for professional careers in the global wind power industry combining technology and management as well as both natural and social science. 

The programme takes place in the World Heritage town of Visby. Uppsala University’s Gotland Campus, situated on the island of Gotland, is a leader in wind power project management education.

The different aspects of the programme’s subjects are introduced early on. In the first course of the autumn term, management theory and skills are taught together with wind power development and management. The management skills learned in this first course will be applied and practiced throughout the year. 

Career 

The job market for graduates is strongly international as the methods and issues are similar in different parts of the world. The demand for competence is increasing internationally. . Actors within the field are for example, companies operating wind farms, consulting firms, local and national governments, component manufacturing and supply chain companies, research institutions or other organizations working with renewable energy and/or environmental issues.
