Postgraduate Programme Renewable Energy (PPRE)

The three term non-consecutive master’s programme (MSc, accredited) addresses scientists and engineers particularly from southern countries with a minimum of a seven term BSc degree. The programme began 1987. A theoretical and applied introduction to all basic renewable energy systems plays the main role in this programme. In addition to a two month practical training in one of various institutions worldwide and a six month master thesis, students work on an energy case study in small workgroups. Through close cooperation with universities, research institutions, organisations of international development cooperation, private businesses and more than 280 alumni from more than 60 countries a professional network has been established.
