Present Challenges in REEE

Combination of elective modules selected from RUN Course catalog3030RUN

Present Challenges in Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (REEE)

The REMENA master program has established a network called REMENA university network (RUN) including three main partner-universities, namely, Cairo university (CU) in Cairo (C), university of Monastir (UM) in Monastir (M) and university of Kassel (UKAS) in Kassel (K).

In the course catalog below, different elective modules offered by UKAS are presented, from which REMENA students are able to choose a combination of 30 ECTS modules building up a module called “Present Challenges in REEE” which is described briefly in the following tables. Clearly, the students, based on their study focus, can also combine 30 ECTS credits either from this course catalog or by successfully passing a combination of elective modules, offered by CU, UKAS and/or UM and listed in the elective modules section, to be a sum of 30 ECTS credits.
