Within the rapidly expanding European renewable energy industry, an urgent demand exists for more post-graduate trained staff specialised in renewable energy technology. Together with leading European Universities, EUREC has developed the European Master in Renewable Energy. Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen (Hanze UAS), became member of the EUREC consortium and started this master programme in September 2012.

The aim of the European Master in Renewable Energy is to train post-graduate students to fill the gap between the growing industry demand for specialised renewable energy expertise and the skills currently available on the job market.
By structuring the course in three sections, students are guaranteed to spend time in at least two different EU countries and make contact with a wide range of European universities and companies involved in the renewable energy sector. The participating universities are all well-established in training and research and recognised internationally for their work in the field of renewable energy technology.
The first semester the student will acquire a solid foundation in key renewable energy technologies and the socio-economic issues related to these. For the core the student can choose one of the following universities:
Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen, the Netherlands (English)
Ecole des Mines de Paris, France (French)
Zaragoza University, Spain (Spanish)
Loughborough University, UK (English)
Oldenburg Un iversity, Germany (English)
For an overview of the core modules at Hanze UAS, see here.
Semester 2 – Specialisation
The second semester will give students the opportunity to specialise in a chosen technology. The specialisations are taught in English. For your specialisation semester, it is possible to apply for an Erasmus+ grant (not for University of Northumbria, UK). For general information about the Erasmus+ programme, you can read this page.
For the specialisation there are the following options:
Sustainable Fuel Systems for Mobility (Hanze UAS, Netherlands)
Photovoltaics (University of Northumbria, UK)
Wind Energy (National Technical University Athens, Greece)
Grid Integration (University of Zaragoza, Spain)
Solar Thermal (University of Perpignan, France)
Ocean Energy (IST Lisbon, Portugal)
In the third semester each student will conduct a 6 month research project in a company or a research centre. This is done under supervision of professors of the core and a supervisor from the project provider. For your final thesis placement it is possible to apply for an Erasmus+ placement grant. For general information about the Erasmus+ programme, you can read this page.
The participating universities are all well-established in training and research as well as being recognised at an international level for their work in the field of renewable energy technology.
The European Master in Renewable Energy focuses on the technical understanding of design and implementation of renewable energy technologies with the opportunity to gain specific expertise in one of the main renewable energy technologies or their integration into energy systems.
You will gain the technical, analytical, communication skills required for you to become a key member of the future renewable energy workforce. You could become a ‘Renewable Energy engineer’ or ‘project engineer’ for instance.
