Renewable Energy

Preparation for professional practise

The University Master in Renewable Energies of the University of La Laguna is an official post-graduate qualification that attempts to meet the significant demand for professionals in the energy industry globally and in the Canary Islands in particular. As there is no specific degree qualification in the area of energy, the demand for preparing students involves acquiring know-how in energy matters from a very basic level if they want to acquire training that is appreciated by the market
