Participants of this certificate program will learn about the state-of-the-art technology of wind energy system components and the concepts of the relevant technologies. Based on this, they will be able to develop high quality standard components and they will have the ability to overcome the current technical limitations of these wind turbine elements. These engineers are able to design modern, energy efficient, economical and reliable foundations, towers, rotor blades and nacelle systems, and to invent related new design concepts and technologies. Encouraged by their competence in planning, managing and administrative aspects, students are well equipped for leading positions in the field of wind turbine development and construction, as well as for the operation and maintenance of wind energy systems.
