Photovoltaics is one of the most important green energy sources and a major player in the future
world energy market: brilliant engineers are required urgently. The Master Online Photovoltaics
provides profound insight into the physical, technological and system design aspects of
photovoltaics. It enables students to develop, design and optimize semiconductor devices and
photovoltaic systems with respect to efficiency, cost and lifetime.
The program is designed for highly motivated professionals who want to enhance their knowledge
and abilities in the field of photovoltaic technology. We also encourage companies to incorporate
the Master Online Photovoltaics into their human resources development strategies and trainee
programs. Companies can greatly benefit from the knowledge and teaching experience of the
University of Freiburg and the Fraunhofer ISE.
Admission to the program requires a previous academic degree in a scientific or technical field and
one year of work experience in photovoltaics or other fields. Applicable academic degrees include:
physics, chemistry, electrical / mechanical engineering, materials science, technical physics,
technical computer science and combined degrees in engineering and business.
The Master Online Photovoltaics program is flexibly designed to allow for the admission of
students with a wide range of qualifications. Your prior academic degree and your individual
qualifications determine the length of
