Renewable energy at sea has great potential, but its use presents a great technological challenge. The harsh environmental conditions require specific advanced knowledge in various scientific and technological fields. The aim of the Renewable Energies in the Marine Environment (REM) Erasmus Mundus Master's degree is to train specialists with the necessary skills to achieve this technological challenge and, specifically, to respond to the industry's demand for skilled professionals.
The Master in Renewable Energy in the Marine Environment (REM) is an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) offered by four universities: University of the Basque Country, UPV-EHU, (Spain), University of Strathclyde (United Kingdom), Norwegian University of Science and Technology, NTNU (Norway) and École Centrale de Nantes, ECN (France).
Student mobility is compulsory so that each student must undertake the Programme by enrolling at three of the four partner universities (including for completion of the Master thesis). Different pathways are available, designed to provide in-depth knowledge in individual marine energy disciplines, defining two specializations:
- Specialization (A): "Renewable Offshore Energy Systems Engineering"
- Specialization (B): "Power Electronics and Control for Offshore Renewable Energy Systems"
