Organization profile

Profile Information

Renewable energy needs innovative professionals!
It is one of the biggest challenges for the near future: the transition to a sustainable society, which is based on the use of clean energy sources. On a large scale, new solutions and new approaches are needed. The Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen (Hanze UAS) is the leader in applied research into renewable energy. It is one of the universities of applied sciences where students from various disciplines are trained in energy education and are involved in research into energy matters.

What can you do in Renewable Energy during your study programme?
At Hanze UAS, you can specialise in New Energy during your study programme, by taking an 'energy track' consisting of a combination of components from your own study programme, components from other study programmes and learning activities from the Energy Academy Europe. Upon completion of the energy track, you will receive an energy certificate.

European Masters
Together with leading European Universities, EUREC Agency has developed the European Master in Renewable Energy and the European Master in Sustainable Energy System Management​ that merges business and technology in the field of energy. Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen (Hanze UAS) became member of the EUREC consortium and started these master programmes in September 2012 and September 2015, respectively. ​
