Our mission is to train experts in the field of clean energy to help build a sustainable world.
In a world facing increasing energy demands, externalities related to fossil fuels, and an urgent need to address rising CO2 emissions, there comes a clear case for far-sighted training and education.
Reykjavik University emphasises hands-on learning that prepares students for the challenges they will meet after graduation. This means working with other students completing actual, real world assignments and projects, with the potential for collaboration with international companies and institutions. This is one way in which students can benefit from RU's extensive connection to industry. Classes are kept small to encourage interactions between students and teachers.
