Program description

M. in Solar Energy

The hallmarks of this Master, along with its quality, make it an attractive proposition for students, both Spanish as well as those from other countries, who want to gain a first-rate qualification in the field of solar energy and its many applications

P art of the course content will be focused on research in solar energy and publishing results in scientific journals. Proposal preparation and project execution will also be covered.Great emphasis will also be placed on practical work in scientific research and engineering to be able to gain access to PhD programs or to jobs in the industry.

The participation of PSA (Solar Platform of Almería), whose applied research at international level is second to none, singles this Master out from all others.

This University Master will provide graduate students with a series of skills in the following areas:

  • Concentrating solar systems.
  • Non-concentrating solar systems.
  • PV solar systems.
  • Solar energy applications in desalination, agriculture and construction.
  • Solar photo-processes and photo-reactors.
  • Evaluation of solar resources.
