Introduction

The demand of renewing energy has steadily increased and with her the interest of the industrial system. Some systems of renewing energy production, as the Aeolian one, have already reached the maturity of the market, some other are still stimulated by public participations.

Thanks to the rising of the demand, the photovoltaic industry has regained vigor and attracts an ever increasing number of new operators and researchers and increases the demand of specialized people.

The aim of this master is to answer to the request of the industrial and research world, preparing profiles able to understand and operate on the whole range of photovoltaic.

This Master wants to form professional characters with abilities ranging from analysis, study and design of photovoltaic systems, to management and maintenance of systems, who are even able to work in public and private sectors of research and to interact with managerial sectors of the innovation area.

So this Master wants to give students appropriate technical, operative and cognitive instruments to gain a leading role in the new industrial framework.

The plan of studies is therefore addressed both to the training of the neograduates and the aimed updating technician already operating in private companies and public administrations. According to this point of view, the subjects proposed belongs to different scientific and technical areas (physics, chemical, engineering, economics, etc..) but each of them concurs and is fundamental for the training of the professional character object of this Master.
A particular interest is dedicated to the training in various laboratories (Polo Solare Organico, Regione Lazio, ENEA) where theoretical competences are checked through practical experiences correlated to photovoltaic.

In the master will be faced not only those aspects relative to the traditional silicon photovoltaic but also the aspects relative to the organic photovoltaic of III generation…

An introductive section will lead the student in the geopolitical aspects connected with the industrial market in general and with the photovoltaic one in particular. An optional module, instead, will be addressed to those who are interested to get into the entrepreneurial world and will concern those aspects linked to the financial support techniques and project financing.

Our Master of second level for the engineering of photovoltaic wants to form the protagonist of the future, of the new scenery recommended by UE. The 8 and 9 March Council of Europe indicated the three main and binding aims to get within 2020: 20% reduction of greenhouse gas emission, 20% production of energy through renewing sources and use of the 10% of self-traction energy from biofuel.
