Reykjavik Energy Graduate School of Sustainable Systems backed by Reykjavik Energy, one of the leading geothermal power companies is an interesting graduate programme building in parts on the Icelandic geothermal know-how.

From time to time I cover some educational efforts for promoting sustainable energy and in particular geothermal energy. So there one doesn´t come around a programme offered in Reykjavik, Icleand, “The International MSc programme in sustainable energy at REYST.

The program promotion talks about that “Sustainable use of energy resources is the basis for future economic growth and well being. To promote research and organized education in this field, Reykjavik Energy, in collaboration with Reykjavik University and the University of Iceland, has established REYST – an interdisciplinary school in higher education for engineers and scientists in order to create leading experts in management, design and research in the field of sustainable energy.

The program is characterized by its focus on sustainable energy use, especially geothermal energy, practical experience in the field and ready access to on-site work with experts on various subjects. The international graduate program is open for students holding a BSc degree in engineering, earth sciences and business.
