An international Masters course in environmentally-friendly energy resources, intended for students who have completed a BS degree in engineering or natural sciences, will be offered by the School for Renewable Energy Science (RES) in Akureyri next year.
The first term begins in February 2009, offering specialization in five faculties: geothermal energy, renewable energy science, fuel cell systems and hydrogen and bioenergy and biofuels.
Currently, roughly 30 students are enrolled in RES from ten different countries. The entire course is taught in English and many of the teachers come from foreign research universities. Students undertake their projects in cooperation with Icelandic energy companies or foreign universities and research institutes.
RES cooperates closely with the University in Akureyri and the University of Iceland.
In light of the current difficult economic circumstances in Iceland, the application deadline has been extended to December 1.
