Program description

The EWEM- European Wind Energy Master is an advanced 2 year (120 ECTS) international MSc with four specializations: Wind Physics, Rotor Design, Electric Power Systems and Offshore Engineering.

The EWEM - European Wind Energy Master 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. The study is an MSc degree in engineering, lasting two years, where students are awarded a double-degree in engineering from two of the host institutions.

EWEM is an advanced MSc, with 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:

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

The students, depending on the choice of specialization, will spend different semesters at the different partner universities, benefiting from a range of expert lecturers and a truly international education.

Erasmus Mundus European Wind Energy Master Specializations

Wind Physics
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.

Rotor Design
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

Electric Power Systems
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.

Offshore Engineering
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.
