GPE NET is a two-year Master program in English, offered by the TU Berlin. The degree program offers comprehensive qualification in renewable energy technologies such as photovoltaics, solar thermal systems, wind energy, hydro power, bio energy and geo thermal systems. The major aims to prepare its students for the challenges of the booming renewable energies markets. The course of studies is oriented around the requirements in commercial practice and takes all steps of the value-creating process into account; from production of renewable energies components, planning /installation and operation of renewable power generation facilities, up to management, financing, law and marketing aspects of the renewables industry.
The degree program GPE NET, is directed at engineers with a B.Sc., who are to occupy leadership positions in global renewable energy enterprises, specifically in the areas of production, management or engineering.
This Master program is evolving as dynamically as the solar and renewable energy sector. Students from the intake 2013 will already benefit from three new modules which enable them to develop their competences in the fields of hydro power and geo thermal systems.
The market for renewable energies has been developing at a staggering pace, regarding both the amount of the globally installed capacity and technological innovation. The capacity for photovoltaic for example, is expected to triple over 2011 – 2017 up to 230 GW, and also the market for solar thermal heating should see an almost three-rate growth in the same period up to 500 GWth. This development goes along with increased economic attractiveness and improved framework conditions in many parts of the world. As a result, for engineers with corresponding solar know-how many new and interesting jobs have been arising.
Prospective engineers in the field of renewable energies need above all to build their practical competences in addition to their theoretical knowledge of technologies and applications. The goal of the Training Center is to demonstrate the functions of both individual elements as well as entire facilities for renewable energy technologies, thus giving students a consistent practical reference in their instruction. The center is equipped with the most modern simulation and real-life equipment, measuring instruments, as well as standard software for projects development. It enables students to better understand the principles of renewable energies technology and to work with equipment and tools typically used in the industry.

As we are continuously monitoring recent developments in the global renewable energy market, we have decided to extend our course offer and to include some late-breaking topics about other renewable energy technologies in the GPE Solar curriculum. These modules are opening up vast fields of possible professional activities for our engineers-to-be.
