Renewable energy plays a more and more important role in today’s world. Renewable energy contributes to a sustainable energy system by providing a more independent power system and contributing to the reduction of global warming and climate change.
Offshore renewable energy has a vast potential, but represents a major technological challenge. The harsh conditions offshore demand advanced and specific knowledge in various scientific and technological fields, and trained professional are made by this industry.
The aim of the Master of Renewable Energy in the Marine Environment is to form specialists with the required skills to accomplish this technological challenge. The Programme is a two year masters’ course consisting of four semesters of study (120 ECTS).
Each student must undertake the Programme by enrolling at three of the four partner universities (including for completion of a master thesis).
The Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree in Renewable Energy in the Marine Environment is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union and takes place in four universities.
The Master program is fully presented in English and classes are presented by professors of University of the Basque Country (Spain), Strathclyde University (UK), Ecole Centrale de Nantes (France) and NTNU (Norway), and professionals from the supporting companies and institutes.
Students can choose to develop their MSc thesis in one of the companies supporting the master. This presents a great opportunity to gain experience while working on the thesis.
