Reach sustainability via new skills


The European Master (specialization school) is an initiative proposed and developed by SKILLBILL project, dedicated to students with a bachelor, possibly in engineering or physics.

The specialization school is an educational program for the upskilling of technicians, designers and researchers on renewable energy with additional focus on circular economy.

The goal is to improve skills in renewable energy technologies, including economical and social impacts, to promote and support the transition to a sustainable world.

The courses will be performed by four of the most prestigious universities in Europe:

University of Tuscia (UNITUS) in Italy, a consolidated cultural reference point that combines attention to the territory with a broad international scope;
University of Sevilla (USE) (UNITUS) in Spain, the oldest and largest University in Southern Spain, one of the top research centers across the country;
University of Utrecht (UU), the largest Dutch universities;
Metropolia (MET), based in Helsinki, Finland's largest university of applied sciences.

The courses will make an extensive use of practical and design activities, hands-on sessions and assignments. Lessons held face-to-face will be also broadcasted in streaming through a dedicated webpage/platform to enable the participation of international students and part-time students joining from the workplace.

Dedicated Extended Reality rooms will support the hand-on training of students, ensuring that all the training programs will be flexible and empowering, assisted with a new and appealing way. The effective implementation of this hybrid learning approach will make use of a combination of practical, lab and design activities leveraging on virtual reality technologies.

The courses will be supported by industries or other stakeholders for the final stage.


The specialization school will organize 12 courses (modules), divided into 4 VERTICAL PILLARS and 2 HORIZONTAL PILLARS.

The EU Master will address soft skill gaps, strengthening talent, and offering a final practical stage in a growing number of companies focused on education as a part of their business strategy.

Each vertical pillars are specialized on technology related to energy transition; those vertical pillar will also offer the use of Extended Reality as hand on training:

1. Sustainable and renewable fuels
2. Sustainable and renewable heat Sustainable and renewable electricity.
3. Sustainable mobility

The 2 horizontally-integrated pillars guarantee a global vision of energy transition and the ability to re-think energy design and research.

1. Sustainability, circularity, and socio-economic aspects of energy transition
2. System integration, energy management and storage, and efficiency

Each pillar will offer 3 courses (1 compulsory and 2 elective): students can select 6 elective courses out of 12.

Each course will give 4 ECTS, 100 hours of total work per student with at least 32 hours of supervised work (8 per ECTS), such as lectures, assignments, lab work, guided projects.

At the end of the specialization school the student will participate in a final stage, that  should be a real-life case study and not bibliographic, in participation with industries or other relevant stakeholders.

To enroll, students should at least have a bachelor (entry level requirement 180 ECTS), possibly in engineering or physics.


SKILLBILL’s specialization school  represents a great opportunity for all students willing to increase their knowledge in the RES sector.

Students will be offered several courses from 4 prestigious european universities, so they will be able to share their experience with other students from other countries, to experiment different teaching methods and approaches.

Students will have the chance to be involved in a final real-life case study with the participation of industries or other relevant stakeholders.

Students will also experiment the Extended Reality to perform several activities

Students will have the unique opportunity to participate in a programme organized and financed by an European project.
