Study Plan

To become a Master of Wind Energy, you must complete nine courses and a final project. The total workload is equivalent to one year of full-time work, or 60 ECTS. You can distribute the nine courses over two to four years. It is also possible to follow selected courses without completing the full Master programme.

Courses run over 13 weeks beginning in early September or February each year. 1st and 3rd semester courses run in the autumn whereas 2nd semester courses and the final project run in the spring. The exact dates for course start-up and examination periods are given in DTU’s academic calendar.

The workload per course is equivalent to 5 ECTS or approximately 140 hours. The number of hours includes time spent on attending classes online as well as time spent on preparation and any assignments, examinations and the like. 

Learning online
Our online courses are structured into weekly modules with a variety of learning activities such as viewing short video lectures, readings, quizzes, calculation exercises, compilation of reports, and virtual poster presentations. There will be weekly deadlines, which you must fulfill in order to pass the courses.

Within each course week, you can plan your working effort as you wish and study anywhere you want. This gives you a high degree of flexibility. We will organize a number of live online sessions as part of each course. Some sessions are optional and others are mandatory. Detailed information about the sessions is given at the beginning of each course.
