A sector driven by SMEs

Most of the companies that make up the RE industry landscape are of small and medium size. Even if there are recent tendencies for consolidation of the sector like the takeover of MADE by Iberdrola or the expected merger of the Danish wind turbine manufacturers Vestas and NEGMicon, the majority of companies do not count as large enterprises. Given the fact that the launch of new products is a cost-intensive exercise involving heavy investment in research and development, the sector is certainly not making large enough profits for single companies to embark on expensive training programmes for new employees. However, new recruits, even if they might hold an engineering degree, are not perse fit for a company’s daily job requirements and typically need a minimum of 6 months on-the-job training before being able to contribute tangible results.

A response to the demand for specialised engineers

Driven by the fact that there is not enough supply in the labour market that qualifies to meeting the specific demand of the different RE companies, EUREC Agency set up a graduate degree course to satisfy industry needs in human resources: the European Master in Renewable Energy. This full-time technical course provides its students with the state-of-the-art skills and expertise required for employment in the RE industry. By turning out experts in the respective RE technology, the course significantly reduces the time and financial burden of training new employees for the potential employers.

Target students

The course is of strictly technical nature and thus only applicants with an engineering, physics or relevant scientific university degree are admitted. Beyond this, applicants must have a very good command of English language in order to follow classes.
