The National Accreditation and Quality Authority at the Ministry of Higher Education announced the accreditation of the Bachelor of Renewable Energy Engineering program, starting from the beginning of the first semester of 2017/2018. The importance of the program lies in its economic and environmental impact on society, as it contributes to the development of studies for power generation from solar cells, wind, biofuels, natural gas and others. The program aims to provide the Palestinian labor market with qualified engineers; Able to design, develop and maintain the renewable energy systems necessary to meet the electricity needs of the Palestinian citizen. Especially, as the world is moving towards renewable energy and is moving away from traditional energy sources; due to its negative effects on the environment and its high cost.

Bachelor of Science in Renewable Energy Engineering (BSREE) is a program designed to prepare students to meet the challenges of designing, promoting, and implementing engineering in the rapidly changing industries of renewable energy resources. These resources include; solar thermal collectors, photovoltaics, geothermal resources, hydropower, wind, biofuels and biomass. The program built on a solid foundation in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Communications sciences. Added to this foundation are courses in electrical and mechanical engineering that establish a solid understanding of the fundamentals of energy and renewable resources such as applied mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid dynamics, materials and circuit analysis, industrial electronics and control systems.


  1. Providing engineers who are scientifically, culturally and ethically qualified to play a major role in raising the national social and technical level.
  2. Provide graduates with advanced knowledge of the latest technologies for renewable energy generation. These technologies include solar cells, wind energy, biofuels, biomass, and natural gas.
  3. Providing graduates with three basic pillars: mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, economic and administrative knowledge. This program prepares students to work on any project related to storage, transportation, control, and renewable energy generation.
  4. Providing rare job opportunities for students of renewable energy engineering in several specialized tracks: renewable energy sources, renewable energy systems, energy transmission and distribution, renewable energy economics, SCADA and industrial networks, and energy conservation.
  5. Qualifying students with the necessary skills to implement projects within a competent and homogeneous work team.
  6. Providing students with the necessary skills for communication, self-development and scientific research.

  • Students of the of the Engineering program  will have:

    1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
    2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
    3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
    4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
