30.09.2017 - ASE 'Aeolus' Turbine Climb in Lynetten

ASE 'Aeolus' organized a turbine climbing event at two turbines at Lynetten this Saturday. It was a great opportunity for the new EWEM students to get their hands on the turbine.


13.09.2017 - ASE 'Aeolus' Welcome Celebration

ASE 'Aeolus' welcomes the new students of the European Wind Energy Master. 26 young professionals signed up to study more about up to date technologies in wind energy. We wish them all the best during their two years program in one of the four tracks: rotor deisgn, wind physics, electrical power system and offshore!


EWEM Summer School 2017 - 21.06. Visit Ampelmann

Kick-off of the EWEM Summer School this year was a company visit at Ampelmann in Rotterdam. An idea that started in Berlin, lead to an amazing project which was investigated and developed at TU Delft. Afterwards we visited Seaway Heavy Lifting and worked on a Case Study about the transition piece following instructions by SpeedSolvingMaritime.


EWEM Summer School 2017 - 22.06. ENECO

The company visit at ENECO was a great opporturnity to learn interesting facts about the energy consumption and sustainability in the Netherlands. Special thanks to the wind energy team to answer all our questions and make the visit a great success!


EWEM Summer School 2017 - 22.06. Van Oord Visit

During the second day of the EWEM Summer School the participants were invited to visit 'ASE Aeolus' partner Van Oord were we learned more interesting facts about the offshore wind industry developments. Special thanks to D. E. van Griethuysen for the presentation at Van Oord.


EWEM Summer School 2017 - 23.06. Visit Ventolines

'ASE Aeolus' partner Ventolines gave us the opportunity to visit their offices, listen to the presentation about a current master thesis project and exploring the near shore wind farm Noordoostpolder.

Offshore Wind Energy 2017 - London June 6-8

8 ASE 'Aeolus' members and 2 additional winners attended the Wind Europe Offshore Fair in London! It was an amazing opporturnity to learn more about the fast growing offshore industry. Special thanks to Wind Europe for sponsoring the tickets!!!


King's Day 2017 - Leiden, Netherlands

On 27.04.2017 everything was coloured orange - and our members were part of it. Social events such as celebrating King's Day is one way to get to know international cultural aspects and diversity.


Multiple Day Excursion 2017 - Jutland, Denmark

ASE 'Aeolus' third trip around Denmark was a success! We would like to thank Windar Photonics, Siemens Wind Power Brande, Bladt Industriy, LM Wind Power and Vestas for their hospitality during these visits. It was a great experience and we are looking forward to our next visit!


Enriching the study experience of students of EWEM with respect to educational, career-oriented and social aspects by enhancing the bond between students and the cooperating universities, the industry and the students themselves.

ASE ‘Aeolus’

ASE ‘Aeolus’ is the association for students of the European Wind Energy Master of the TU Delft, Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg, Norwegian University of Science and Technology and Technical University of Denmark.


ASE ‘Aeolus’ aims to be the default go-to organisation for students of EWEM who want to enrich their study experience and the go-to organisation for the European wind energy industry to engage with wind energy students.


The baton has been forwarded to the third board to carry out the mission that ASE ‘Aeolus’ had envisioned from the start. We would like to thank the second board for taking up such an initiative to help the EWEM Students, bringing together 111 members and alumni and many companies of the wind energy industry.

After a successful organization of a trip to WindEurope in Hamburg in 2016 and organizing the Multiple Day Excursion for 14 of our members in January 2017 for the third time , ASE ‘Aeolus’ provides a crucial link between the academic world and the industry and gives its members the opportunity to network. Cohesion and interaction among our members is also one of our main goals within the association, enhanced through a Christmas dinner in both Denmark and Norway and other informal reunions.

We have come a long way, but there is still much to look forward to. The aid given by our new sponsors Aeolus has been crucial and we aim to achieve much more in the coming few years. We are very proud and thankful of the support that Van Oord, Enercon and Ventolines are providing us as our partners and encourage other companies to join us in this endeavor. With their help and the help of our members we hope to create a global network that strives together in the developing world of Wind Energy.

Board of ASE ‘Aeolus’

ASE ‘Aeolus’

The Association for Students of EWEM, known as Aeolus, was founded to help students connect with the industry and vice versa whilst also providing ways to improve their experience during the programme.

  • A multiple day experience, visiting factories, test sites, and headquarters of the wind energy industry
  • Hosting guest lectures at all our partner universities
  • Organising informal drinks and events to bring everyone together
  • Performing EWEM specific quality control to help improve the quality of the programme
  • Provide opportunities for students to find their MSc. Thesis or internship in the industry

The European Wind Energy Master (EWEM)

The European Wind Energy Master (EWEM) is an Erasmus Mundus programme hosted by the Technical University of Delft (NL),

Danish Technical University (DK), Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NO) and the University of Oldenburg (DE).

Students get to experience the forefront of wind energy research in an international environment.

Rotor Design

This track focuses on blade development and students must choose whether to specialise in the structures aspect or the aerodynamics aspect of blade design. A Rotor Design student obtains a degree from Delft and one from Denmark

Offshore Engineering

Students of this track learn about the design procedure for offshore structures and how it should it adapted to suit wind turbine foundations and offshore wind farms. Upon graduation students receive a degree from Delft and one from Norway

Wind Physics

Students  will gain knowledge on the physics that govern wind in terms of fluid dynamics, meteorology and statistics.  They will receive a degree from Oldenburg and Denmark after their graduation

Electrical Power Systems

This track allows the student to get the technical knowledge about components and systems required for renewable energy integration within the power system. After graduation the student will have a degree from Delft and Norway.
