Programme Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Renewable Energy Engineering is a four years programme with 493 minimum credits. The first two years, students will concentrate on foundation courses in Engineering, Science, Mathematics, Computer and technical  communications and the last two years will concentrate on core Renewable Energy issues, economics, environment and managerial courses.

The strength of this programme  is that it is geared towards Outcomes-Based Training (OBT), which differs substantially with many university training, which are classical knowledge – based and content-driven  format. It is driven by the acquisition of skills. Most of contents of the courses are seen as a tool whereby life-skills and competencies can be enhanced.
