The Energy Academy Certificate is a valuable certificate – an addition to your degree at either Hanze UAS or University of Groningen. It certifies that, next to your major subject you have acquired knowledge of other disciplines and worked on a set of competitive skills in a variety of energy-related subjects. It confirms thorough professional knowledge in your specific field and additional sufficient insight into the context and a general knowledge of bordering energy-related disciplines.

For instance: a student of Hanze UAS can follow designated energy track. Generally these energy tracks are designed according to a multidisciplinary approach: studying in-depth courses in your own discipline (worth 20 ECTS) and broadening  your horizon following courses outside the discipline (10 ECTS). Topped off with 10 Energy Learning Activities a student is eligible for the Energy Academy Certificate.

Your road towards the Energy Academy Certificate

Energy Learning Activities
Make sure you sign up and participate in 10 Energy Learning Activities during the course of your study. You can start at any time, both on Bachelor and Master level, during the course of your study, as long as you end up with 10 Learning Actictivities upon graduation.

Upon participation of and registration for 10 each Energy Learning Activities, you can acquire a ‘proof of participation’ in the programme. This proof, in the end, is required to apply for the Energy Academy Certificate.

We host some 20 Energy Learning Activities every year on a wide range of topics, all related to the energy transition.

Energy Education
The 30 ECTS of interdisciplinary energy education that is required for the Certificate has to be completed at Hanze University of Applied Sciences or University of Groningen.

For Hanze UAS, 22 energy routes are available that lead you to obtaining 30 ECTS interdisciplinary energy education.

For the University of Groningen, a programme of interdisciplinary energy education is currently being developed. In the meantime, individual programmes are available.

I looked at many different perspectives of energy transition, for example from the demand side to the supply side.
