Introduction to the Reykjavik Energy Graduate School of Sustainable Systems (REYST), a joint programme by the University of Iceland, Reykjavik University and local geothermal power company Reykjavik Energy.

Regularly I receive e-mails of people asking me about education programs that cover geothermal energy. So herewith I want to start a series of geothermal education programs that might be of interest to people.

I am starting this series with a joint programme operated by the University of Iceland and Reykjavik University together with Reykjavik Energy, the largest geothermal power company in Iceland.

It was established three years ago and is REYST – Reykjavik Energy Graduate School of Sustainable Systems – an international graduate program for students holding BSc in engineering, geosciences or business. The school’s first group of students received their MSc degrees in January 2010, see http://www.reyst.is/Students/Students2008/ and http://www.reyst.is/Students/MScprojects2009/

The school accepts new students in August each year and our next application deadline is February 1., 2011.
