* Tuition fees: EU/EEA: € 2,006 (per year)/ NON-EU/EEA: € 11,500 (full tuition fee). However, an EU student already holding a Dutch master's degree will pay €7,300, for the full programme.

​​​​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. Order our brochure now, or sign up for the open day.​

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. ​
