Stay in your job and study on top

Our part-time study programme Renewable Energy Online (MSc) is the right choice for you if you want to become an expert on future energy systems by studying next to your job.  You will acquire competences in a broad range of Renewable Energy technologies, including solar and wind energy, storage technologies, electric power systems and the relationship between energy and society.

Be prepared for future challenges

Renewable energy plays an ever increasing role in worldwide energy supply. Experts are requested all over the world for the rearrangement of existing energy supply systems as well as for the development and implementation of new innovative and sustainable energy systems.

After finalising the programme with a Master of Science degree, you will be able to work as a Renewable Energy expert in a self-organised, interdisciplinary, problem-oriented, responsible and scientific manner, to present results in a structured format and to critically reflect on them. Prospective employers are e.g. companies, governments, and academia.
