Uppsala University

DESCRIPTION

Uppsala University has a turnover for 700 Euro, employees are 7,000, 40,000 students, three disciplinary domains and nine faculties.

The Department of Earth Sciences at Uppsala University has over 250 employees and teaches more than 2200 students every year. Our focus is on research which means that 75% of what we do is research and 25% is education. At least 30 nationalities are represented at the department.

Campus Gotland's Wind Power division conducts research in a range of topics including wind turbine wakes and wake interactions, planning and acceptance for wind power and wind power decommissioning among others.

The overall objective of Uppsala University Campus Gotland’s group is to maintain and further develop knowledge of wind energy though research, innovation and education.

Research:
Our research focuses are on increasing the understanding of wind turbine wakes and wake interactions, stability of the tip vortices as well as the optimization of large wind farms.

Education:
The Department of Earth Sciences offers an international Master programme (1-year) on Campus Gotland, the Master Programme in Wind Power Project Management as well as a 2-year version, Master Programme in Wind Power Project Management. The Department also offers an international Bachelor's programme, Bachelor Programme in Energy Transition - Sustainability and Leadership.

We are also managing several net-based freestanding courses focusing on wind power planning and project development that form the bachelor’s track Wind Power Project Development. The courses are given in English and Swedish and can be combined to a major in a bachelor's degree in Energy Technology.

Outreach:
Collaboration, out-reach, is the third important task for the division. Here we commission programs for vocational schools and professional training as well as carry out research communication and various knowledge-building activities.
