Diplomas of Advanced Studies (DAS)

Studying Wind Energy Systems in Kassel is highly flexible. We provide higher education at different levels and in different areas of competence. Besides the master's program Online M.Sc. Wind Energy Systems, seven Certificates of Advanced Studies are offered. These enable our participants to study specific certificates with different foci in wind energy systems. All certificates have a total of 30 credits.

If students take part in more than one certificate, overlapping modules will be accepted. All modules of the certificates are accredited by the ASIIN. The fee for a complete certificate is €6,000.

These 30-credit certificates are:
