Hello all,

I was recently accepted to a program overseas that offers said degree. I think it sounds great, but I'm more than slightly worried about job prospects in the field. Can anyone offer advice?

I only know the situation in central Europe - here job prospects are quite good especially if a program focuses on renewable energies. There is governmental funding and lots of initiatives to drive the implementation of sustainable energy systems.

One caveat: Because the field is a bite 'hyped' many people from related fields are turning to renewable energies as well. So in a few years the number of experts might exceed the number of jobs.
