Wind power is already a very important source in producing electricity, and its importance is steadily increasing. In 2020, wind power is expected to deliver 12 per cent of global electricity demand, create 2.3 million jobs and make a substantial contribution to reducing CO2 emissions. A wind energy specialization from DTU gives you an education based on world-leading expertise at the heart of global wind power development.
The course is based on state-of-the-art knowledge and technology, combining the scientific research and accumulated knowledge with teaching and guidance from a large number of associated experts and researchers from the industry. As a world-leading university in wind-energy technology, DTU has been engaged in wind energy research and education since the 1970s and has offered a dedicated MSc programme in wind power since 2002.
The MSc in Wind Energy is offered with a specialization in either mechanical or electrical engineering. Several activities and courses are common for the two specializations, and are coordinated with common elective courses. Thus, it is possible to obtain a cross- disciplinary knowledge of a wide range of wind power technologies.
The aim of the MSc in Wind Energy is to give you a general understanding of wind energy systems and an in-depth knowledge of aerodynamics, aero-elasticity, mechanics, grid connection and power systems that qualifies you to analyse, design, develop and operate wind energy systems.
