The international community has set itself the ambitious goal of achieving sustainable development. Decision-makers therefore have to have a profound understanding of the legal, economic and technical issues.

Without the ETIA master course I would have never gone into the renewable energy field, I would have never found my passion for wind energy. Thanks to this course, I decided to do an internship in wind energy. Now I work there full time right after my graduation.
