Photovoltaics & Solar Energy Engineering

What is Photovoltaics & Solar Energy Engineering?
Photovoltaics & Solar Energy Engineering is the study involving the manufacture of solar cells that convert light into electricity.

Finding new and creative ways to harness the vast amount of energy in our sun fills a big demand of our increasingly energy hungry world. Choosing this field of study will enable students to gain the required skills and creative thinking that allows them to solve one of the world’s greatest problems – creating a sustainable energy source.

Photovoltaics & Solar Energy Engineering as part of your Diploma
UNSW Diploma students will gain hands-on experience in engineering design and programming in addition to learning the fundamentals of mathematics and physics. All discipline-specific diploma courses are equivalent to first year undergraduate courses but students receive added support and will also be equipped with academic and English skills. This will ensure students have a strong basis for their journey into second year at UNSW Sydney.
