MSc Renewable Energy in Central & Eastern Europe

This MSc program “Renewable Energy in Central & Eastern Europe” is the first cross-border postgraduate program in Europe dealing with all future issues of alternative energy production and is offered by Technische Universität Wien in cooperation with Energiepark Bruck/Leitha. A partial scholarship has been announced to facilitate the access to the MSc program and to enable a better academic qualification in the field of “Renewable Energies” especially for participants from South and Eastern European countries.

The jury – consisting of the Academic Director, Reinhard Haas, and representatives of the two cooperation partners, Karin Mottl (Energiepark Bruck/Leitha) and Andrea Würz (TU Wien) – awarded the scholarship in the amount of EUR 6,500 to Vojna Ngjeqari.

Vojna Ngjeqari (25) has a Bachelor Degree in Political Science at the University of Vienna. The Albanian-born is very engaged in social activities – e.g. at the Women’s Entrepreneurship Day Organization. The mission of the WED Organization is support and empower women entrepreneurs world-wide, daily. WED accomplishes this with its Student and Worldwide Ambassador programs, and Vojna Ngjeqari is one of these ambassadors. Recently she became project manager at Sports Without Borders, a NPO which provides support for young people from new and emerging communities to overcome the barriers of participation in community sport. Being asked, what she is expecting from the MSc program, she answered: “Ten years from now, I envisage myself in Albania as a green entrepreneur and politically involved in a feminist government. I believe the knowledge I would gain from this MSc program would help me make this ambition a reality.

We wish Ms. Ngjeqari all the best and a good program start on October 20th!
