Net-based courses in Wind Power and Sustainable Development
We offer a variety of freestanding net-based courses focusing on wind power planning and development. Most of the courses are offered in both English and Swedish but a few are only offered in English. These courses can be taken separately or combined to one year of studies (60 credits) within the subject of Wind Power Project Management including a final larger project course. The courses during the spring can also be applied for as a course package. (For students starting 2020 the old structure can be followed as planned.) Most courses are 7.5 credits, which is the equivalent of ten weeks of half-time studies. The teaching staff for these courses is based at Campus Gotland.
These courses are intended for students who want to work with planning and development of wind power within governmental agencies or industry, nationally and internationally. It covers a wide range of disciplines such as engineering, planning, environment, energy, wind resources, economy and power grids. Among other things, a student will learn how to calculate the wind turbine energy production at a site as well as answer questions about wind power’s role in society.
Distance education allows for full-time students as well as for those who are working or are otherwise unable to attend on-campus courses to both learn new skills and gain knowledge.
We also offer courses in Energy and Environment as well as Sustainable Development!
