Do you want to share your energy talent to move to a sustainable world? Then, the Master in Renewable Energy at Hanze University of Applied Sciences (Hanze UAS) is something for you!

The aim of the European master in Renewable Energy (RE) is to train post-graduate students to fill the gap between the growing industry demand for specialised RE expertise and the skills available in the job market.

EUREC Agency together with leading European Universities involved in renewable energy education and training have responded to this demand through the development of the European Master in Renewable Energy.

EUREC selected Hanze UAS to be the first University of Applied Sciences to offer the Master in Renewable Energy, because of its good facilities and research in the field of energy. It boasts extensive professional and academic networks both in and outside the Netherlands.

The North of the Netherlands has sublime expertise on energy transition. Because of many years of experience in gas transitions, this part of the country is a true energy region and has a huge national and international energy network. Hanze UAS is situated in the centre of this energy valley; it is the top sector in energy.

job perspective

There is a need for highly skilled professionals with fundamental interdisciplinary knowledge, skills and tools to tackle challenges such as energy scarcity and evinornmental problems. The combination of technical, strategic, social and environmental issues encountered in the energy transition represents a significant multidisciplinary approach. It requires more senior technical professionals and highly educated engineers who can work with experts from other disciplines and carry out applied scientific research to come up with practical solutions, by doing applied research, consultancy work or providing strategy and policy advice.
