Renewable Energy Systems

in cooperation with Energiepark Bruck/Leitha

Overview

This Master Program is unique throughout Europe's postgraduate education landscape. It is the first cross-border course dealing with the future issues of alternative energy production. In the beginning the focus of this program relied on contributions from Austria, Hungary and Slovakia. Meanwhile the international orientation was enlarged.

The program is designed more and more cross-border in view of the growing markets in European countries and the expected investments of enterprises in these countries. The international orientation of the program is reflected not only in the curriculum, but also in the cross-border cooperation with universities and organizations of other countries in the scope of country modules.

Tailor-made country modules are offered to gain in-depth knowledge on energy markets in selected European countries.
