Program Description

Master in Solar Energy Engineering (1 year or 2 years)

Dalarna University

This Master’s Degree Program is based on the research work at the Solar Energy Research Center (SERC) at Dalarna University. The program started in 1999 under the name “European Solar Engineering School (ESES)”. Since then about 250 students have taken the program and most of them work today as solar experts in the solar industry and as researchers and teachers at universities all over the world.

Why should you take this program?

  • Solar energy will play a crucial role in the supply of future energy on Earth.
  • Solar energy engineers are already required in many sectors of the energy industry.
  • This one-year master’s degree program has an ideal blend of theory and practical elements that give students an optimal start for their solar career.
  • You will study while in close contact with teachers and researchers at (SERC). In the courses, you will be trained on real-case projects.
  • The international character of the program and its participants will allow you to work in multinational companies and to create a worldwide network for your future career.

Who should study Solar Energy?
