Technical University of Denmark: MSc in Wind Energy
With the wind energy programme from DTU, you get an education based on the world leading competences in the heart of the global wind power development. The education is based on absolutely front-knowledge and technology, combining the scientific research and knowledge of DTU and Risø with teaching and guidance from a large number of associated experts and researchers from the industry. As a world-leading university within wind energy technology, DTU has been engaged in wind energy research and education since the 1970s and has offered a dedicated MSc education in wind power since 2001.
The programme in Wind Energy is offered in close collaboration between the Department of Mechanical Engineering, the Department of Electrical Engineering, the Department of Informatics and Mathematical Modeling (IMM), and the Wind Energy Department at Risø National Laboratory.
The aim of the programme is to give you a general understanding of wind energy and a deep insight and knowledge in technologies related to wind energy which qualifies you to analyze, design, develop and operate wind energy systems.
The programme focuses on electrical and mechanical aspects of wind power and power system integration, and it is possible to obtain a cross-disciplinary knowledge on a wide range of technologies of wind power, such as aerodynamics, wind turbine construction, control, prognosis, grid integration, and optimization.
With an education in wind energy, you are qualified for employment in the rapidly growing international wind energy industry and related sectors. You get the possibility to contribute to the global development of the field in a wide range of aspects, and you will have a wide range of possibilities of employment, e.g. within technology providers such as wind turbine manufacturers and subcontractors, energy companies, utility companies, developers, consultancies and research companies.
The prerequisite for the MSc in Wind Energy is a BSc degree in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering or other relevant academic background. More information on the courses can be found on DTU's webpage.
