Renewable Energy Online - Master of Science
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.
What are the main challenges for future energy supply? Which technologies are most relevant? What kind of knowledge and skills are specially required?
Those are the questions we asked international students and graduates from Renewable Energy Master programmes. Have a look at their answers and get an impression of our new Renewable Energy Online (REO) programme:
The REO master's programme qualifies you in the field of renewable energy technologies, systems and sustainability. REO is aiming for engineers and natural scientists with a first university degree and at least one year of professional experience. It is an English-language, part-time study programme, which is especially suitable for students who are not able to study in Germany, e.g. due to job obligations or family duties.
The curriculum comprises 120 ECTS credits of mainly online study, including two mandatory on-campus periods. The regular study time is 7 semesters with a workload of approximately 20 hours per week. Due to its modular design, the REO curriculum can be adapted flexibly to your individual life situation.
Courses start every October, application is possible online from June through August.
After finalising the programme, 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, academia and development cooperation organisations.
