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 institutes and companies involved in the renewable 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 renewable energy technology.
The referees should provide a letter of reference in English, Spanish or French on the candidate’s academic suitability to study for the European Masters in Renewable Energy. This should include, if possible, details of the results he/she has obtained in degree examinations. If the applicant has not graduated the referee should give a predication of the likely degree outcome. Finally, the referees should include their name, status/title, telephone/email and the name and address of their institution/company. Reference letters must be submitted on the official headed paper of the institution/company and contain their signature. The application is not valid without two letters of reference.
Each student is responsible for finding their own funding for studying in the EUREC Master Programme. EUREC does not supply financial aid and cannot provide tuition reductions. Some students have previously applied for scholarships and whenever needed, EUREC is able to provide Proof of Acceptance and similar documents.
The minimum level of admission is a BSc degree of a high standard in an Engineering, Maths or Physics OR equivalent appropriate work experience.
Additionally, the students must prove their ability to follow a postgraduate course in English alone or English plus French or Spanish according to the student’s choice of institutes. Non-native English speaking students must sit for the TOEFL or the IELTS exam
