The hundredth graduate of the postgraduate master's program "REMENA", now successfully completed the double degree program of the University of Kassel with Cairo University Egypt with the degree Master of Science (M.Sc.).

REMENA stands for "Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Region". Since 2016, students have also had the option of pursuing a double degree with the University of Monastir in Tunisia. Meanwhile, students come from all over the world: more than 20 nationalities learn and work together at REMENA. The intercultural study program trains German and international students to become experts in various areas of sustainable energy supply with a focus on implementing energy projects in an international context and for the MENA region. At least one summer semester takes place in Kassel, the winter semester at one of the partner universities in Egypt or Tunisia. Other network partners in the REMENA University Network RUN are expanding the range of courses on offer: an elective semester at the University of Sfax is already anchored in the curriculum and can be funded via ERASMUS+. Now the German University Cairo (GUC) is to be integrated into the study program as a further network partner. Funding for this is provided by the DAAD from the German Foreign Office under the German-Egyptian Progress Partnerships program line. The study program takes place at the Department of Electrical Engineering/Computer Science and has been headed by Professor Dirk Dahlhaus since 2010.
