PhD student Jan Schneiders and EWEM student Constantin Jux awarded best paper at Ispiv 2017Friday, July 21, 2017

Aerodynamics Ph.D. candidate Jan Schneiders and EWEM student Constantin Jux from the Rotor Design track won the best paper award at the last International Symposium on Particle Image Velocimetry (Ispiv), held last June in Busan (KR).

Their work deals with a novel “torch-like” system for large-scale tomographic PIV based on the use of helium-filled soap bubbles. Jan and Constantin used this system for the full-scale measurement of the flow around Giro d’Italia winning cyclist Tom Dumoulin (video) under the supervision of Dr. Sciacchitano and Prof. Scarano.

Wind Europe Summit 2016Monday, October 10, 2016

EWEM went to Wind Europe Summit 2016 and it was great! 17 students had the chance to travel to Hamburg and live at first-hand the biggest wind energy congress in Europe. Three days of debate about the future of wind energy and how to make the transition to renewables work. EWEM was also present in a stand and in the recruitment day presenting the programme to students and the industry.
It was also noticeable the presence of the EWEM-alumni – Mareike Leimeister and Marthijn Bontekoning - both from the cohort 2014-16 Offshore Engineering track. Mareike (at the left hand side of the picture), presented a poster about the paper she wrote as a result of her MSc Thesis: ”Design Optimization and Upscaling of a Semi-Submersible Floating Platform”. Marthijn (at the right hand side of the picture), was present in the Dutch pavilion of the Wind Energy Hamburg exhibition presenting his new entrepreneur adventure ”Live Megawatt”. The startup, cofounded by him and his colleague and friend Jeppe Bijker, shows wind farm real time statistics that can be used by stake holders and may get wind energy closer to a new social perspective. We wish our brilliant students the best in their careers.
And year by year EWEM becomes bigger and better. Prove of that was the presence of the 5 existing cohorts in the event. In the following memorable picture we see EWEM-students from cohort 2013-15 to 2016-18; from left to right Nick G. C. Janssen, Marthijn Bontekoning, Jorge Mendoza and Ottelien Bossuyt.
It was a great experience and we would like to thank ASE Aeolus for the arrangements of the visit and Wind Europe and ABB for sponsoring the tickets.

Admission & application 2017-2019Friday, June 10, 2016

If you wish to apply for the 2017-2019 EWEM programme, you can start the procedure as of October 15th 2016. This is conducted by the International Office of the TU Delft. How you can apply and which files you need to send in (digitally) is mentioned on their website. You can find the website here.

Please note that our current Erasmus Mundus contract with Brussels ends with this 2016-2018 cohort. Therefore, by the time applications open for the 2017-2019 programme (in October 2016), we will not yet know whether we will be able to offer scholarships. We are working on several new scholarship initiatives, but these will not be sorted out by the opening of registrations.

Under the Admission-tab on our website you will also find details on specific admission guidelines for EWEM (e.g. which background you need, what courses, etc), and more information on the scholarships.

When all your files have been received, the International Office will judge whether your application complies to all the minimum requirements. If it does, we will send it through to the reviewers of the track you have chosen and they will have the final judgement on whether or not you are selected for the programme.

We wish you all the best, look forward to your application and hope to welcome you next year in the world’s absolute top wind energy master!
