​KSC Seminar: Solar energy education @TU Delft: Using energy of the SUN to drive global education

Speaker: Prof. dr. Miro Zeman

Delft University of Technology, Photovoltaic Materials and Devices Laboratory

Date & Time: Monday October 23rd, 2017 at 9.45am

Venue: Building 5, level 5, 5220

Light refreshments will be provided.

Abstract: In last 5 years a broad education program in solar energy has been developed at TU Delft. The program contains all aspects of global education such as it makes students aware of the important developments in the world of energy and prepares them to take a lead in designing and implementing the changes in the future energy supply and infrastructure.

The education program in Solar Energy focuses on the photovoltaic technology that delivers electricity directly from the sunlight. The program is carried out on three different platforms:

1) on campus,

2) on-line,

3) long-life learning for professionals.

During the presentation the aspects of these three platforms will be illustrated and discussed.

Biography: Prof. dr. Miro Zeman received his Ph.D. degree from the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava in 1989 for research on amorphous silicon materials and devices. In 1990 he joined the Delft University of Technology where he carried out research on thin-film silicon solar cells. In 2009 he was appointed Full professor at the Delft University of Technology where he leads the Photovoltaic Materials and Devices group and is the head of the Electrical Sustainable Energy department. Miro Zeman is a leading expert in light management, modelling, and development of novel materials and nanostructures for silicon-based solar cells.
