Course Description

In a world where the need for sustainable and renewable energy sources is increasingly urgent, solar electric energy is establishing itself as a promising solution. But what exactly are Solar Electric Energy Systems? Simply put, they are systems that convert sunlight directly into electrical energy. They are usually composed of solar cells, inverters and several other components that can store and distribute energy efficiently.

For engineering students in India, this is particularly relevant, as the country not only receives abundant sunlight but also faces the challenge of meeting exponentially growing energy demand. For this reason, the course offered by DADB is more than just an academic endeavour – it is an opportunity for you to position yourself at the intersection of technology and social change.

The DADB course goes beyond looking only at theory. It provides in-depth training in both the fundamentals and advanced concepts of solar technology. Through partnerships with selected industry players, the knowledge base is further reinforced with real-world examples of the practical application of solar electric energy technologies.
