About the Master's Course

This Master's Course has been part of ISES congresses for many years and we are happy to offer it again this year at EuroSun 2022! Master's Courses in Solar Energy have been held during EuroSun Conferences in 2000, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018 as well as at ISES Solar World Congresses in 2011 and 2021.

The Course welcomes students currently enrolled in a Master's Programme and who have completed a B.Sc. degree. Applicants should have a good knowledge of solar energy, solar buildings and related topics. The number of students is limited to 20 and all attending students are required to join ISES as a Student Member before the start of the Course. The Course is organized by ISES President, Prof. Dr. Klaus Vajen (Kassel University).

Before the start of the Course, the students will choose a conference theme they want to cover. The EuroSun 2022 conference themes can be found here. Based on the papers presented at the EuroSun 2022 and individual literature study, the students will work out a state-of-the-art report on the selected theme. For this, students will be paired in groups of two from different universities and will present their findings to other students and supervisors during the last day of the course.

The workload is 90 hours which corresponds to 3 ECTS points. Students will be given a certificate for having concluded a 3 ECTS credit course at the University of Kassel but the recognition of the course at their home university is at their sole responsibility. Supervisors should motivate students to take part in the Course.
