Advanced study courses in wind energy technology and management

Together with ForWind, the Centre for Wind Energy Research at the Universities of Oldenburg, Hanover and Bremen, WAB initiated the further education course "Wind Energy Technology and Management". The study concept was awarded the 2007 NordWest Award by Bremer Landesbank for its "demonstrably positive and identity-generating effect" and in 2009 by the initiative "Germany - Land of Ideas" as a "Selected Landmark 2010". The course has been successfully completed since autumn 2015.

A booster for your professional future

New technologies and increasingly complex planning processes require a comprehensive understanding of wind energy projects - from technical, commercial and planning issues to legal issues. The study course Wind Energy Technology and Management optimally prepares students for the requirements: It conveys basic specialist knowledge, system understanding and key qualifications. In addition, it offers access to a reliable network of experts from business and science and creates a link to practice through project work during the course of studies - the planning of a wind farm.
