Offshore Energy

The minor is meant for students who are interested in the offshore energy transition from oil and gas to more low carbon energy, like wind energy, tidal energy etc. This also includes how to store the electrical energy from the windmills and the transition from electrical energy to hydrogen or syngas. The students in this minor come from various (mainly technical) fields of study. You work together in multidisciplinary teams to the commands within the minor and to the final project. During (work-) lectures and the implementation of the projects you gain insight into the field of energy. Focus will be on safety. Safety is a major issue when working in the Oil and Gas industry. Each week starts with a Safety moment and safety is incorporated throughout the Minor. Participants will gain practical knowledge through excursions and guest lectures from Companies and establishments involved in all aspects of the exploration and exploitation of oil and gas.
