Do you want to know how to plan and construct renewable energy plants? Would you like to evaluate the effect of new energy production systems on the environment? Do you wish to conduct experiments, analyze data, and create computer simulations of solar plants or wind farms? If any of these topics interest you, then the M.Sc. in Renewable Energy Systems is the right choice for you. As a graduate student, you’ll be able to work in the development, planning, management, monitoring, or operations sectors of renewable energies. Alternatively, students have the opportunity to further develop their academic careers with a Ph.D.
Bachelor's degree (or equivalent) in environmental engineering, process engineering or a similar field.
Graduate Record Examination (GRE) for applicants who do not have a Bachelor's qualification from an EU country.
Required ECTS credits: 210.
Applicants whose bachelor diploma consists of 180 credit points (ECTS) must acquire another 30 credit points during the first semester of their studies. The specific department decides which examinations and tuition must be completed. Applicants will then be temporarily admitted and enrolled for one term in order to complete the missing 30 credit points. After the end of the first semester, the department will inform the student administration center and the examination office whether the missing credit points have been acquired and the student may continue his studies.
