The programme is aimed to respond to challenges of the recent European Marine Strategy Framework Directives. A pivotal goal of the Programme is to promote international and European cultural exchange and interactions among students.
For this purpose it was conducted a feasibility study regarding the convenience of the implementation of such a Master in the Basque Country context by an independent office EURO PRAXIS commissioned by UPV/EHU which has taken into account: a) analysis of demand: company needs, b) analysis of offer: identification of programmes and offshore energy agents, c) pre-proposal Master contents: analysis of contents, structures, typologies and contrast with companies and stakeholders. Six content priorities and three segment priorities were identified.
The content priorities are:
|1||Resource and marine environment|
|2||Theoretical foundations: early marine energy conversion|
|4||Connection and integration into the electricity grid|
|5||Engineering, development and management of offshore parks|
|6||Environmental, economic and legal aspects of marine renewable energy|
Whereas the segment priorities are:
|3||Tidal power and sea currents|
The analysis of offer helped to identify relevant core partners in order to complement skills and capacities for structuring a Master excellence programme. The Master degree submitted to co-design with partners has been carried out taking into account the needs and priorities mentioned by consulted companies.
