CALL FOR APPLICATION MASTER H2

2021 Admissions into International Master Program in Energy and green hydrogen Technology (IMP-EGH):

Specialty: Green hydrogen production, water resources and Technology

 

  1. Background

The West African Science Service Centre on Climate Change and Adapted Land Use (WASCAL) under the sponsorship of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is pleased to announce application for its Interdisciplinary Master Program in Energy and green hydrogen (IMP-EGH)in all fifteen (15) ECOWAS countries partners namely:Benin, Burkina Faso, Cabo Verde, Cote d’Ivoire, The Gambia, Ghana, Guinea Conakry, Liberia, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Togo.

WASCAL is a wholly West African international organization with focus on academic and transdisciplinary research, building graduate-level scientific capacity and serving policy makers in West Africa with science-based advice on adaptation to climate change impacts and land use management. It cooperates with many agencies and universities in the region, providing a knowledge platform of excellence for its partners. WASCAL is funded by BMBF, multilateral and bilateral partners and its West African member countries.

The Interdisciplinary Master Program in Energy and Green Hydrogen (IMP-EGH) is innovative for the West African region and it is designed to prepare the next generation to address the energy challenges of adaptation and resilience to climate change in West Africa. The program interdisciplinary approach will allow a better understanding of present-day energy infrastructures in West Africa, their strength and weaknesses, energy policies, practices in a changing climate context and the search for sustainable solutions.

 

  1. Missions

The mission of this program is to provide training on state-of-the-art tools used in renewable energy, green hydrogen technology and policy (politics) with the view of forming adequate human resources to boost the sector of energy technology and guide policy formulation across the region.

 

  1. Objectives

The main objective of this Master is to prepare and train a new generation of interdisciplinary professionals capable of proposing adapted solutions to ongoing energy crisis. Therefore, Graduates will be well skilled in order to jointly fulfill the two following points:

  • demonstrate an understanding of the science related to a changing climate and global warming, knowledge of the impacts of climate change, vulnerability of natural systems and the built environment, and methods for adaptation;
  • develop a comprehension of energy production, delivery, and consumption for both traditional systems and sustainable energy alternatives with special emphasis on energy efficiency, energy management and local available renewable energy.
  • Identify and develop methods for the production and valorization of green energy (biogas and biofuel) from biomass.
  • Identify and popularize the methods of production and valorization of green energy (hydrogen) from water resources.

 

  1. Employment opportunity

Graduates of the master H2 with the specialtyGreen hydrogen production, water resources and Technologywill be immediately operational in various fields of renewable energy production. In the private sector, all agro-industries will be able to use their knowledge to transform their residues and other agricultural waste into energy.

They will be the first human resources for electrolysis factorys of Water Resources in clean and renewable energy (hydrogen)

 

  1. Eligibility criteria

Interdisciplinary Master Program in Energy and Green Hydrogen (IMP-EGH) is open to students:

  • from partner countries in West Africa (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cabo Verde, Cote d’Ivoire, The Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea Bissao, Liberia, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Togo.)
  • with a minimum background of a B.S. degree or equivalent in scientific discipline or in engineering. Candidates with technical strengths in physics, chemistry, electrical, statistician economic or mechanical engineering or equivalent are required
  • with no more than 35 years old at the end of december 2021.
  • Having a good English proficiency will be an asset for final selection
  • Females candidates are highly encouraged to apply
