Renewable Energy Programmes

  • Renewable Energy Online - REO

Renewable energy plays an important role in worldwide energy supply. For the realignment of existing energy supply systems as well as for the development and implementation of innovative and sustainable centralised and decentralised systems experts are requested all over the world.

The Renewable Energy Online – Continuing Education Programme (REO) qualifies you in the field of renewable energy systems, resources and sustainability. In online based learning concepts basic and in-depth knowledge with practical relevance at university level is provided.

It is planned to offer a selection of two different Certificates of Advanced Studies (CAS) soon: The programme Renewable Energy Off-Grid Electrification (by the Postgraduate Programme Renewable Energy, PPRE, University of Oldenburg) and the programme Distributed Electrical Energy Storage (by the research institute NEXT ENERGY).

The "Certificate of Advanced Studies" is a continuing education degree. Transparency and comparability of the degrees is provided by the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). Both of the two CAS programmes (12 ECTS each) consist of two modules - a single module is awarded with 6 ECTS and takes around 20 weeks to complete. To provide education based on individual needs, some modules can also be taken as single stand-alone courses and will be awarded with a confirmation of participation.

Due to the modular design of the REO programme, your continuing education can be adapted flexibly to your individual life situation regarding extent, structure and duration. With mostly time and location independent work phases, in which you study in groups or on your own, the course fits optimal to the needs of employed students or students with family duties.
