Study Plan

Studying the Wind Energy Master
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.

Read more about the difference between a Master of Science and a Master degree here.

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 run in the spring and it is possible to work on the final project in either the spring or autumn semester, depending on what suits your individual study plan. The exact dates for course start-up and examination periods are given in DTU’s academic calendar

Workload:
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. 

Since the courses run over 13 weeks, you should estimate approx. 10 hours per course, per week. 

Recommended study plan
The below study plan shows the order that we recommend for the courses, if you plan to follow all courses and obtain the master degree. It is possible to change the order of the courses, but we recommend that the course “Wind Turbine Technology” be followed very early in the study and the course “Numerical Tools in Wind Energy” be followed as late as possible and preferable after the courses “Wind Resources” and “Aerodynamics and “Aeroelasticity”.

In general, we recommend that you follow 1st semester courses first, then 2nd semester courses and finish off with 3rd semester courses. This also applies if you are following individual courses.

Individual Study Plan
It is possible to extend the study period from two to four years, which will naturally minimize the workload each semester. If you decide to pursue that option, we recommend that you use our tool called “My Study Plan” to make sure that you allow for all nine courses and the final project.

When planning you study, please be aware that courses run either in the Autumn or the Spring.

You can create your own individual study plan.
