REMENA - Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Region

The objective of the international Master of Science (M.Sc.) program REMENA is to educate German and international students in measures for a sustainable energy sector where the students are expected to have working experience in a corresponding area and hold a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree. The latter can be obtained in different disciplines, e.g. law, economic, social, engineering or natural sciences. While the program contents focus on the cooperation between countries in the MENA region and Germany, applicants can be accepted for the REMENA program independently of their nationality.  

The study of renewable energies and energy efficiency requires intensive studies of different theoretic and practical topics in technology, economy, law and intercultural affairs. The REMENA graduates will be experts in different disciplines for future projects in the energy sector with a special focus on the cooperation with countries in the Middle East and North Africa. The REMENA program will be conducted at different places. It comprises lectures, seminars, practical training and excursions during one semester (6 months) at Cairo University in Egypt or the University of Monastir in Tunisia and one semester (6 months) at the University of Kassel in Germany. The master thesis project (9 months) can be conducted in the MENA region, in Germany or in another country, preferably in companies or institutions dealing, e.g., with wind parks and photovoltaics for power generation, with building insulation or energy economics.
