The one-year Master’s programme is designed to prepare you for a career in the global wind power industry by combining technology and management from both natural and social science. Join this programme to make a positive footprint in an interconnected and sustainable world. As wind power development increases its geographic distribution, project size and complexity, there is a great need for professional managers to lead interdisciplinary wind power projects to successful completion.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
The one-year Master’s Programme in Wind Power Project Management emphasises applied knowledge through frequent guest lectures provided by experts and by using state of the art simulation and planning methods as well as excursions to wind farms and into wind turbines. This programme lays the foundation for and opens the door into the wind power industry.
Critical thinking and skills in oral and written communication are equal elements of professional competence and important parts of the curriculum. These skills are practiced throughout the programme and applied in the thesis where you will independently conduct research.
During your studies you will meet industry representatives, researchers and expert teaching staff that contribute to the development of the field. You will also build a broad network of contacts, enabling you to establish links with potential future employers and for internships in the industry.
The programme began in 2010 and its alumni have taken key positions in the wind industry all over the world.
During the programme you can expect to:
- learn planning, project development and management of wind farm projects
- have close collaboration with industry representatives
- combine technology and management from both natural and social science
Uppsala University Campus Gotland is a leader in wind power project management education. You will be able to enjoy everything the historic town of Visby and the island of Gotland has to offer. Located between the Swedish mainland and the Baltic States, the island has a unique character and a long history. Additionally, as a centre of early Swedish wind power development, Gotland is a great location to study the subject. The accessibility of the island is excellent as there are frequent flights and ferries between Gotland and Stockholm, the capital of Sweden.
You have your foundation in natural science, social sciences or engineering and most likely have practical experience working in related fields after earning your Bachelor’s degree. You want an educational experience that also let you sharpen your presentation skills and give you an opportunity to apply your knowledge in realistic cases. Each and every student’s background – cultural as well as academic – contributes to the diversity of the class making it into a truly international forum for discussions and debates.
A future PhD education is a possibility you might have thought about, but working right after graduation is also something you are considering.
The programme leads to a Master of Science (60 credits) with Wind Power Project Management as the main field of study.
A Bachelor’s degree, equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen, from an internationally recognised university. The main field of study must be within engineering, science or social science.
