Brief Introduction of Solar Cell Technology Program

Taiwan is highly populated and more than 98% of the energy resources are imported. Both developments of local energy recourses and energy conservation are extremely important. The related education and research are, therefore, very crucial for the sustainable development of the country.

National Tsing Hua University has long history on the education and research of energy technology. The purpose of the present program is to integrate the resources available, including faculty and facility, in the University to develop a curriculum on solar cell technology.

Such a curriculum would educate the interested students with fundaments, expertise as well as hand-on experience on solar cells. It is anticipated that such a curriculum will cultivate excellent students on solar cell technology, which will promote the use of solar energy and solar cell industry in the country.
