Your course content
What you will learn

As wind energy has become a mainstream source of energy in Asia, America and Europe, professionals with industry knowledge and experience are a sought-after asset in many businesses. 

During the International Wind Industry short course you get to learn about the aerodynamic principles and the different types of wind turbines. You learn how to calculate energy yield and find out about turbine efficiency and blade designs. Apart from technical knowledge, you will learn how to manage and finance new wind energy projects and get first-hand insights thanks to on-site and trade fair visits.

Next training: 22 - 25 February 2022
