Are you interested in sustainable energy, and wind energy in particular? Would you like to work
on interesting projects with other students from various engineering disciplines? Would you like
to learn everything about on- and offshore wind energy and join national and international
excursions to small and large wind turbine manufacturers? This is your chance!
During this minor, you will deal with various themes that play a role in the offshore and onshore wind industry. For example, the design, construction, operation and maintenance of relatively small to very large wind turbines. You will learn about wind turbines with a horizontal and vertical axis, about the challenges surrounding electricity networks and how to deal with the varying energy yield of wind energy. We'll also take a side trip into hydrogen technology and look at how you can use hydrogen as a buffer alongside wind energy.
We introduce you to theory about turbine blade aerodynamics, the conversion to electricity, but also the challenges this poses to the electricity network. We will also bring you into contact with various large and small companies in the rapidly changing market in offshore and onshore wind energy.
We are looking for ambitious students who want to roll up their sleeves and learn about renewable energy and wind turbines.
The minor Wind Energy has been developed in cooperation with EnTranCe, companies and knowledge and research institutions. The programme is currently divided into 4 modules:
