Photovoltaics Engineering Science is a 3 semesters Master’s program in English language, which requires a Bachelor’s degree in engineering science or physics. No professional experience is needed. It consists of 2 semesters courses in solar cell physics, technology of crystalline silicon and thin-film solar cells and modules, cell and materials characterization, components of a PV system and their reliability, system design, monitoring, yield and performance analysis, storage systems, power electronics, and electric grids and solar energy integration. The technical subjects will be accompanied by a course in business administration, and voluntary courses in German language for daily life (which are not credited; usually at beginner level). A final research semester under supervision of a professor from the university concludes the program. The courses combine lectures with exercises, seminars or practical laboratory work. The tuition in compact form will build up on a requested solid basis of knowledge in mathematics, physics, chemistry (or materials science), fundamentals of electrical engineering and semiconductor technology, and scientific methodology, which the applicant is expected to have acquired in a previous Bachelor’s program. The research for the Master’s thesis can be performed in the PV laboratory of Anhalt University, at the Fraunhofer Center for Silicon Photovoltaics CSP (in nearby city of Halle), or in any other PV laboratory or any PV company worldwide.
