Bachelor's degree (or equivalent) in a related field.

Minimum standard period of study: 3 years.
Required ECTS credits: 180.

The four tracks have different degree requirements:

  • For the "Rotor design" track applicants must hold a bachelor’s degree in either mechanical, aerospace engineering, physics, or a degree with equivalent core content.
  • For the "Wind farms and atmospheric physics" track applicants must hold a bachelor’s degree in either mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, mathematics or physics, or a degree with equivalent core content.
  • For the "Electrical power systems" track applicants must hold a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, physics, or a degree with equivalent core content.
  • For the "Offshore engineering" track applicants must hold a bachelor’s degree in either civil engineering, structural engineering, mechanical engineering, marine engineering, physics, or a degree with equivalent core content.

The applicant’s qualifications must include a strong working knowledge of mathematics and experience in programming and applicants must document that they have fulfilled the following minimum requirements (if not explicit in the names mentioned on the transcripts, extra documentation is required):

  • Mathematics: 25-30 ECTS.

For the tracks "Wind farms and atmospheric physics", "Rotor design" and "Offshore engineering", students must document the following minimum requirements (if not explicit in the names mentioned on the transcripts, extra documentation is required):

  • Statics, mechanical vibrations, and strength of materials: 10-15 ECTS.
  • Fluid mechanics, engineering thermodynamics, hydrodynamics, and heat transfer: 10-15 ECTS.
  • Materials science, and production technology: 10-15 ECTS.

For the track "Electric power systems", students must document a working knowledge at bachelor level of electric power engineering especially in the three of the following subjects (if not explicit in the names mentioned on the transcripts, extra documentation is required):

  • Power systems, power electronics, and electric machines: 10 ECTS.

Working knowledge at bachelor level of at least four of the following five subjects is prerequisite for the central courses of the MSc program (if not explicit in the names mentioned on the transcripts, extra documentation is required):
