The interaction and discussions that occur between students themselves and between students and lecturers are a valuable and indispensable part of the learning experience that we want to offer within this micro-credential. Furthermore, the network that is created between the students is a well-appreciated addition to the more formal part of the program. We see the presence of students on campus as a win-win for all parties involved, but we are also aware of the necessary flexibility for people that want to combine their job with a study therefore a basic livestream will be provided (no camera, only audio, no interaction is possible) and, if allowed by the lecturer, the livestream will also be recorded.


When attending all lectures (attendance of at least 80% of classes) and successfully passing the multiple choice exam, 6 credits will be awarded.

You will receive an exemption for this module if you decide to register for the Postgraduate of Energy & Climate afterwards.
