UPM's Master of Science on Photovoltaic Solar Energy

The syllabus

Each subject is planned and developed during one semester, as detailed in its subject guide, detailed on a specific sheet (See Subjects and distribution of ECTS credits). 

The first semester will be intensive in order to ease the completion of the Master thesis during the second semester, once the basic and mandatory skills have been acquired. Elective seminar subjects are offered in each semester:

  • Seminars included in the “Seminar on current news on Energy” and “Seminar on Photovoltaic Market, funding and management” are optional and lectured once a week. 

  • Seminars lectured by external experts of high reputation, most of them coming from specialized companies (technologists, managers or researchers) who will address particularly relevant and innovative aspects. Companies will also be presented in order to steer students in their search of work.

  • Internal seminars for presentation and discussion. Based on the previous lectures, questions, assessments and elaboration of forecasts in small working teams will be encouraged. Special interest, for their educational nature, will be paid to the students’ dissertations, minding the communication skills, the contents and methodology used.
 

The Master Thesis (15 ECTS) relies on the personal work of the students and constitute their first approximation to research and/or professional activities (depending on their election). Tutorial guidance during the realization of the thesis will be regular and personalized.
