Solar Professionals for the New Energy Era: Activating engineering and business careers with online education
Wednesday February 8th 2017, 14:00-16:00 GMT/UTC
Two advanced and complementary online graduate programs have emerged to facilitate international changes in career paths and continuing education for the modern solar industry skills--from device fabrication and systems design to power systems engineering, from stakeholder engagement to solar resource assessment to project economic analyses.In this webinar, partnering leaders from the University of Freiburg/Fraunhofer ISE and the Pennsylvania State University present new avenues to activate human capacity and skill in the solar energy industry: addressing design, manufacture, and deployment of solar projects. We will discuss leading topic materials from our programs, and introduce the importance of online education for international growth in the renewable energy industry.
Webinar panelist speakers are:
- Dr. Jeffrey Brownson is Associate Professor of Energy & Mineral Engineering at The Pennsylvania State University, in University Park, PA (USA).
- Dr. Martin Heinrich is a Postdoc at the University of Freiburg and at the Fraunhofer Institute of Solar Energy Systems ISE in Freiburg, Germany.
- Dr. Paulette Middleton is ISES Board Secretary, and Co-Chair of American Solar Energy Society Board of Directors. Dr. Middleton is the webinar moderator.
