The Renewable Energy programme at University of Iceland is a two-year program. Private sector and government organizations face a growing need for professionals that can plan, evaluate, and manage complex resource projects which often include partners with a variety of professional backgrounds. 


Iceland, being a volcanic island in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, gets 80% of its energy from a utilization of geothermal and hydroelectric resources.  Engineers and scientists in Iceland have for decades worked on solving problems relating to the harnessing, utilization and technologies needed for sustainability of these energy sources.
