Feedback from Students

"The class included a lot of detailed practical information on the planning and construction of wind farms. It provided a good insight into the step by step development of wind farms. The assignments given in the class were based on the daily work and helped us to understand the work of a wind farm developer."

Fabian Sondermann, Germany, M.Sc. Renewable Energies and Energy Efficiency

“What I appreciate most about the WES programme is the ability to
interact with educators deeply connected within the wind power
industry. The partnership between Fraunhofer and Universität Kassel provides unique access to top quality professors, research, and industry

Elliot Simon, USA, Technical Project Manager, Renewabl.es Consulting

"I had the opportunity to participate in the pilot phase of the Online Master's program of wind energy systems. As a full-time employee with frequent travelling duties, conventional or night classes are not an option. This program provides flexibility in both time and place; I can access all classes whenever I like, even if I miss the real-time sessions, through the recordings, and all I need is an internet connection and a computer. In addition, instructors from both academia and industry give the courses through a great web platform emulating a real class"
