About Sustainable Energy MSc at Reykjavik University

The MSc in Sustainable Energy is a broad-based, highly adaptable programme. Students study sustainable energy and learn about a wide range of renewable technologies that suit different regions and societies. This includes: geothermal energy, hydroelectric power, wind power and energy efficiency. 

The flexible, interdisciplinary programme emphasizes industry involvement and fieldwork experience. Upon completion, students will be able to apply their skills and knowledge to develop solutions to energy related problems from a business as well as a science perspective.

Taking advantage of our position in Iceland, a global leader in renewable energy development, our students are offered the unique opportunity to experience the whole sustainable energy process from the power plant to the development of sustainable energy law at government level.
