Offshore Renewable Energy
The contribution of Offshore Renewable Energy to the energy market is essential for a better environment and for our future. The human use of energy is still increasing and we are running out of fossil fuels. In the future, we can solve this by generating renewable offshore energy from wind, currents, waves and other sources. Currently, many new offshore wind farms are planned and build in the Netherlands. Zeeland is a major contributor to the construction of offshore wind farms, both nationally and internationally. This means that there are many future-proof jobs available for young engineers.
The minor prepares students for a career in this emerging market and allows you to make your own contribution to a better environment.
