The European Wind Energy Master (EWEM) aims to educate 120-150 MSc graduates per year in Wind Energy technology, covering the top 1-2% global demand of Wind Energy professionals with post-graduate education.

After completion, the student will receive a double MSc degree in engineering with diplomas from two of the host institutions attended.

EWEM has four specializations that follow the energy conversion chain:
  • Wind Physics
  • Rotor Design
  • Electric Power Systems
  • Offshore Engineering

Partner Universities
The European Wind Energy Master consortium is composed of four Universities, world leaders in Wind Energy and Offshore Wind Energy research and education:

  • Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg
  • Delft University of Technology
  • Norwegian University of Science and Technology
  • Technical University of Denmark

Depending on the choice of specialisation, the student will spend different semesters at the different partner universities, benefiting from a range of expert lecturers and truly international education.

track Wind Physics

The Wind Physics track allows students master the specific technical knowledge required in one or more of the sub-fields of Wind Resource Assessment.

The Wind Physics graduate:

  • masters an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the field of fluid dynamics, both theoretical and experimental, alongside relevant engineering methods and applications, including a critical awareness of current issues and developments in the subject,
  • is able to apply advanced techniques for flow measurement and computation, as well as mathematical concepts and tools, with a strong component of advanced statistical knowledge and its application to the analysis of meteorological time series,
  • understands the mechanisms responsible for winds in the atmosphere, the atmospheric boundary layer and the phenomena that define its development,
  • is able to model and analyse the interaction between topography, atmospheric boundary layer and energy yield as well as the interaction of boundary layer and wind farms, incl. wake effects,
  • masters the topic of atmospheric turbulence and its impact on loading of structures, with application to wind turbines,
  • has practical knowledge and experience of field measurement.

track Rotor Design

The Rotor Design track allows students master the specific technical knowledge required in one or more of the sub-fields of Wind Turbine Rotor R&D.

The Rotor Design graduate

  • masters an in-depth understanding of the field of rotor aerodynamics, aero-elasticity and blade technology, both theoretical and experimental, alongside with relevant engineering methods and applications and a critical awareness of current issues and developments in the subject,
  • is able to apply and judge advanced analysis and design techniques in one elective profile: Aerodynamics, Structures and Design, Composite Design Material Production and Manufacturing.

track Electric Power Systems

The Electric Power Systems track allows the master students to get the technical knowledge about components and systems required for renewable energy integration within the power system.

The Electric Power Systems graduate:

  • has a fundamental knowledge about the physical components of power systems, power electronics, new designs of HVDC systems and control theory,

has the technical knowledge about components and systems required for renewable energy integration within the power system,
  • demonstrates competences of modelling and analysis of composite systems both from a steady state and a dynamic point of view,
  • masters the design of electrical power systems and its components with special attention on reliability, protection as well as operation and maintenance in offshore applications.

The track will allow students to get a combination of the standard power system analysis skill and a specialization within electric power systems for offshore application. Flexibility will then be given to a specialization within the fields of electric power systems for offshore wind farms, off-shore grids or technical and economic integration aspects of intermittent generation.

track Offshore Engineering

The Offshore Engineering track trains students to master the interpretation of environmental data. Manufacturing, transport, installation and operations & maintenance will be treated in detail.

the Offshore Engineering graduate:

  • is knowledgeable of the specific cost drivers in offshore wind energy: installation, accessibility & maintenance and design of structures,
  • masters the process of design of offshore support structures, both bottom-mounted and floating, including design for extreme and fatigue load, soil-structure interaction as well as fabrication and installation issues,
  • is able to develop hydrodynamic models and apply them; apply probabilistic design methodologies and stochastic models of soil, wind and waves to the structural design,
  • to model and optimize the layout of offshore wind farms, applying its knowledge of the installation, operation and maintenance process of offshore wind farms,
  • is able to model soil mechanics and to model, design and optimize mooring systems.

Beroepsperspectief / arbeidsmarkt

Graduates with an MSc in Wind Energy have outstanding career opportunities. As a graduate, you are on the leading edge of this very new, exciting and expanding field. EWEM prepares these graduates for a career both in industry and in academia.
Wind energy jobs in Europe are expected to grow from the current 200.000 to 450.000 by 2020. The global growth will be even faster. Global Wind Energy jobs are expected to double every 10 years. The technological demands of larger wind turbines, wind farms, penetration in the electricity grid, increasing of the complexity and the required performance need new solutions.
