Written exams to the modules take place in terms of MC-tests, homeworks, calculation examples, business plans, and country reports. Knowledge is conveyed in a very practice-oriented way, in particular, by dealing with precise requirements from practice within the scope of homeworks and the Master's Thesis. In these papers, participants primarily deal with subjects and projects they are in charge of during their workday.
In the beginning the Central and Eastern European focus of our program relied on contributions from Austria, Hungary and Slovakia.
Tailor-made country modules are offered to gain in-depth knowledge on energy markets in selected European countries. Currently these country modules are offered alternating: Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Turkey.
Country specific lectures will include a market overview, legal issues, and promotion schemes. Considering the valuable contributions by our external partners we hope to broaden the focus of our program and to offer our students additional networking opportunities in countries where they may engage in future renewable energy projects.
The MSc Program is concluded by writing a master's thesis with the assistance of a tutor during the fourth semester.
Subjects are preferably relating to the students’ occupational activities and focusing on the feasibility of practical implementation.
After attending the whole program (modules), writing and passing different homeworks as well as the master's thesis, students achieve the final degree "Master of Science" (MSc) granted by TU Wien.
