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 available in the job market.
EUREC Agency together with leading European Universities involved in renewable energy education and training have responded to this demand through the development of the European Master in Renewable Energy.
For the Academic Year 2012/2013, fifty-two students, representing 21 different nationalities, have been selected and started the core semester in Mines-ParisTech (France), Loughborough University (UK), Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg (Germany), Zaragoza University (Spain) and Hanze UAS (the Netherlands).
The core semester is organised to provide the students with sufficient technical background to follow any of the specialisation courses on offer, while also providing them with a good grounding in renewable energy technology.
In February, our 52 students will move to Kassel University (Germany), Northumbria University (UK), Zaragoza University (Spain), Université de Perpignan (France), IST Lisbon (Portugal) or to the National Technical University of Athens (Greece), according to their choice of specialisation, and will then undertake a six-month project in a company or a research centre, from June to December.
This three-semester structure provides the students not only with high level technical and scientific competences, but also with soft skills such as flexibility, adaptability, team spirit, and ability to work in a multicultural environment, which are essential when working in an expanding and global market.
The 28th EU PVSEC will be held in Paris from 30 September to 04 october 2013. It is the
largest international Conference for Photovoltaic Research and Technologies,
