Education in the field of renewable energy: RAWI recommendations

The Russian Wind Industry Association actively cooperates with Russian universities that train specialists for the wind energy industry and renewable energy in general. Cooperation allows members of the association to keep abreast of scientific research in the field of renewable energy, which is carried out by young scientists, and regularly receive information about domestic innovative developments. On the eve of the end of the academic year, the RAWI team decided to help graduates of 2022 navigate in the choice of an educational institution and future profession. For those who plan to connect their lives with renewable energy, the RAWI has prepared a selection of undergraduate and graduate educational programs offered by RAWI member universities.

  • Kazan State Power Engineering University (KSUE) – Bachelor’s degree in Electric Power Engineering and Electrical Engineering. Renewable Energy Sources”.
  • Ulyanovsk State Technical University (UlSTU) – Bachelor’s degree in Wind Energy Systems and Complexes
  • National Research University “MPEI” – Bachelor’s and Master’s program “Hydroelectric Power Plants”, Bachelor’s and Master’s program “Unconventional and Renewable Energy Sources”.
