Who is it for?
The main goal of the online master's program in Wind Energy Systems (WES.online) is to build capacity in wind energy for research and industry. WES.online is aimed at natural scientists and engineers who want to learn about the mechanical and electronic operation and interaction of wind turbines. In addition, the program was created for specialists and managers who want to develop or improve the design or individual components of a wind turbine at a wind turbine manufacturer or supplier company. At the end of your studies, you will receive a German degree – a country recognized worldwide for its knowledge in wind energy and its ambition to advance wind energy development.
Full Flexibility – 100% Online
WES.online enables you to educate yourself besides your full-time job – anytime and everywhere in the world. All courses are taught 100% in the English language and online in virtual classrooms. You can choose to attend the lecture live or access the recording at a later point. There is no need to visit us for taking an exam, as they take place online as well.
