European Master in Renewable Energy and European Master in Sustainable Energy System Management

Introduction

    emreThe European Master in Renewable Energy is an initiative proposed and developed by the European Renewable Energy Centres (EUREC) and a consortium of Universities outlined in the 'Partnering Universities' section.


    The programme has been run since 2002 by a network of nine European Universities and research centres who are leading the way in renewable energy research, development and demonstration. It is coordinated by EUREC EEIG, a consortium of European renewable energy research centres, which has its headquarters in Brussels.The European Renewable Energy Research Centres Agency was established as a European Economic Interest Grouping in 1991 to strengthen and rationalise the European RD&D efforts in renewable energy technologies. As an independent association, it incorporates over 40 prominent RD&D groups from all over Europe.

    sesymThe aim of the European Master in Sustainable Energy System Management is to provide postgraduate students with the skills required for employment in the Sustainable Energy industry. Students will specialise in business case analysis, modelling,project design and implementation. As a result of the foreign contact the course requires, our students will have the international outlook essential to the industry HR needs. The core provides a solid foundation in systems management with legal, environmental, economic,social and technical aspects. Theoretical courses which also examine the socioeconomic issues surrounding the deployment of these technologies are supported by laboratory workshops. The studies for the core will be done in English.

    Objectives The aim of the European Master in Sustainable Energy System Management is to provide postgraduate students with the skills required for employment in the Sustainable Energy industry. Students will specialise in business case analysis, modelling,project design and implementation. As a result of the foreign contact the course requires, our students will have the international outlook essential to the industry HR needs. 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 institutes and companies involved in the sustainable energy sector. The participating universities are all well-established in training and the education sector as well as being recognised at an international level for their work in the field of sustainable energy system management. Structure The course is divided into three sections. In the first semester(September/October to January), students acquire a solid foundation in systems management. In the second semester (February to June), they specialise in a chosen topic at a different university. At the end of the course, students complete a six-month practical or research project. The entire programme is run on a modular basis with credits awarded for passing each section and the successful completion of the project. A total of 90 ECTS credits (30 for each section of the course) are required with a satisfactory level of achievement in all the sections to obtain the European Master degree. The core provides a solid foundation in systems management with legal, environmental, economic,social and technical aspects. Theoretical courses which also examine the socioeconomic issues surrounding the deployment of these technologies are supported by laboratory workshops. The studies for the core will be done in English. The student can choose one of the following: Hanze UAS, The Netherlands for the core taught in English Università di Pisa, Italy for the core taught in English The Core providers all teach these subjects: Systems management with legal, environmental, economic, social and technical aspects System integration and planning Modelling Scenario development Strategic decision-making Communication Each University has its own teaching methods - distribution of modules can be organised differently - nevertheless we ensure that at the end of the core semester all SESyM students have the same understanding and the same knowledge of systems management, enabling them to follow any of the offered specialisations. 30 ECTS credits will be awarded for passing the core semester following harmonised learning outcomes. A specialisation focused on a particular topic selected from: system integration and optimisation or sustainable energy management. Specialisations are all taught in English. Participating universities are willing to provide the above-mentioned specialisations. However, their effective realisation will depend on the final number of students who register. Normally, this decision is taken at the end of July. Students whose specialisation is cancelled will be offered a suitable alternative. The specialisation sections run from February to the end of May or June depending on the specialisation. The student specialises in one of the following: System Integration and Optimisation – taught at Hanze UAS Sustainable Energy Management – taught at the University of Zaragoza Upon completion of the specialisation, the student gains practical or research experience through a project undertaken in an industry, a research laboratory or at the university. A wide variety of projects can be proposed and it gives flexibility to the student and the project provider to define the project. The student is welcome to propose his/her own project. EUREC and the course directors continuously contact renewable energy companies throughout the year to encourage them to propose a student project. Yet,students should not expect to get a list of projects to choose from. Students are expected to look for companies or research centres wishing to offer them a project individually. A qualified person from the specialisation University will give students advice about how to proceed in finding the best project to suit their qualifications and expectations.
