MSc RENE is a two-years full-time programme (120 ECTS) that develops engineering students’ skills in research, innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership, enabling them to meet key challenges and goals in renewable energy. With this know-how, graduates can better understand the world’s energy challenges and speed the transition to a low-carbon economy.

RENE prepares graduates for advanced research, innovation and management careers in renewable energy. It trains the professionals who will design and implement future energy policies and introduce new services and products for energy providers, major manufacturers, business start-ups and public organizations worldwide.

The programme provides students with a holistic understanding of the sustainable energy field. They gain state-of-the-art knowledge and expertise in fundamental renewable energy disciplines covering the value chain from power generation (solar photovoltaic, concentrated solar power, hydropower, wind energy) to storage and transmission (energy vectors, grid integration).

For excellent applicants a limited number of KIC InnoEnergy scholarships are available.


is part of the KIC InnoEnergy educational and innovation strategy. Subsequently, the students will be the first year in one of the universities of the partnership and the second year in another one.

International opportunities

The programme is offered by a consortium consisting of four technical universities: KTH in Sweden, UPC in Spain, IST in Portugal, and ParisTech in France; a Business School: ESADE in Spain; and the following industrial partners: Total (France), EdF (France), and EdP (Portugal). Students will have the opportunity to experience at least two different countries.




The methodology of the program is aligned with the concept of “learning by doing” of KIC InnoEnergy, so combining deep theory knowledge (top-down approach) with internship in industry co-advisored by the university and the industry (bottom-up approach). The bottom-up approach is strenghtened by lab activity (simulation and experimental).


From the transversal point of view and the enhancement of competences, the objective is to train the students in skills such as communication, economics, business administration and to promote the orientation to innovation and the entrepreneurship spirit. The practical implementation of such concepts will be done developing applied technical valorisation and business plans.
