New Curriculum for 2016

Starting in 2016, the Master's Programme will have a new curriculum focused on enhancing students capabilities in our core subjects in solar engineering especially PV and systems design. The main improvements include:

  • More experimental/practical engineering work for students.
  • Adding internship opportunities that can be undertaken internationally.
  • Increasing preperation for the thesis work in the one-year programme.
