Solar Energy Projects From The Massachusetts Institute of Technology ( MIT ) Solar Energy Education.
MIT is arguably one of the best engineering schools in the US, if not the world. Graduates of MIT are able find jobs in a multitude of industries and many create their own companies. A solar energy education from MIT is a very valuable thing to have for anyone interested in clean energy careers.
The mission statement for MIT reads as follows:
The mission of MIT is to advance knowledge and educate students in science, technology and other areas of scholarship that will best serve the nation and the world in the 21st century.
For most people, attending MIT is a dream that they will never realize. The cost of tuition and the high requirements for admission make this university in the catagory of elite, ( but in a good way). Lucky for us, the university records many of their lectures for public distribution.
We have included two of these ( part 1 and 2) for you to enjoy and watch at your leisure.
In this course, delivered in the fall of 2011 entitled MIT 2.627 Fundamentals of Photovoltaics, Fall 2011 you will see the results from students projects in solar energy.
In these 2 videos, students present projects on photovoltaic lights for Lighting Africa, nextgen modules, nextgen simulation,smart retrofitting and photovoltaics grids.
This is an excellant opportunity for readers that are interested in a career in solar energy technology. Here you can learn for free from an MIT professor and the students in the class oMIT 2.627.
