Was sagen die anderen?

Receiving a degree from an all-time leading country in Solar Energy Technology is a privilege - that anyone who knows the field- would be looking forward to. The expertise of our professors from Uni Freiburg and Fraunhofer is palpable and reassuring.
Gustavo Cedeño
This program offers access to state-of-the-art technology at the Fraunhofer Institute, knowledge from top experts in the field, combined with a great supporting team! An experience you wouldn’t find somewhere else.
Hassan Merhi
I do believe it is the responsibility of those like us who have access to this technology, access to research facilities and to scientific knowledge, to use all these resources in order to improve the quality life for all those around us. What we are doing, what we will do from now on, will definitely have a major impact in our planet and society.
