European Wind Energy - Offshore Engineering

In maart wordt de Maart Master Maand georganiseerd voor alle 3mE bachelorstudenten die een master op de faculteit 3mE willen gaan doen. Tijdens verschillende lunchpauzes in maart wordt er een presentatie gegeven over een master of mastertrack. Meer informatie kan je vinden op de website
Je kan je voor zoveel presentaties aanmelden als je wilt! Je kan je hier aanmelden.

Let op: Als je je hebt aangemeld, wordt er op je komst gerekend. Ben je onverhoopt verhinderd? Meld je dan minstens 3 dagen van tevoren af via mail:

European Wind Energy - Offshore Engineering

The European Wind Energy Master (EWEM) is an international M.Sc. programme. The EWEM consortium involves four world leading universities in wind energy and offshore wind energy research and education:

  • Technical University of Denmark – DTU
  • Delft University of Technology – TUD (coordinator)
  • Norwegian University of Science and Technology – NTNU
  • Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg – UOL

The EWEM programme has a 2 year duration (120 ECTS) and gives the student knowledge in the theoretical and applied sciences underlying wind energy systems by offering four different specialisations.

Offshore Engineering

The Offshore Engineering track trains the students to master the interpretation of environmental data for the design of the structures to be used in offshore wind turbines. Major aspects treated within this specialisation are manufacturing, transport, installation, operations and maintenance of offshore wind turbines.

Profile of the Offshore Engineering graduate

  • Knowledge of the specific cost drivers in offshore wind energy, i.e. installation, accessibility, maintenance and design of offshore structures
  • Mastery of the design of offshore support structures, either bottom-mounted or floating, including the design for extreme and fatigue loads and accounting for soil-structure interaction, fabrication and installation issues
  • Ability to develop and apply hydrodynamic models, probabilistic design methodologies and stochastic models of soil, wind and waves to the structural design
  • Modelling and optimization of the layout of offshore wind farms and application of to the process of installation, operation and maintenance of offshore wind farms
  • Ability to model soil mechanics
  • Ability to model, design and optimize mooring systems

Experimental research and modelling: The curriculum includes in all specialisations specific courses focused on experimental research and modelling in order to make the graduate able to develop tools and verify solutions through experiments.

(Students who wish to follow extra courses can do so without extra tuition fees (please, check for possible limitations!).  However, a check with the EWEM Tutor and course lecturer is always recommended prior to attend any extra course.)
