Photovoltaic engineering uses solar radiation to create electricity. You will study the manufacture and use of solar cells, which capture and convert light from the sun to create electricity that can power virtually anything electrical. As a renewable and sustainable energy source, solar stocks are unlimited and a vital industry for humanity's future. This degree includes courses in technology development, manufacturing, quality control, reliability, cell interconnection and encapsulation, policy development, life-cycle analysis, system design, and more. To get you work ready, you'll apply these skills through 60 days of approved industrial training.
