This is the first official day at campus for new master students from outside Norway and the Nordic countries.
Dunia Rios Yunes and Talal Mohammad are master students and will be your buddies during the first semester. They are here to help you with whatever you need, and will arranges several activities throughout the semester.
Feel free to contact the buddies on:
On the Facebook group you may in addition to communicate with the buddies get in touch with fellow students prior to your arrival. The Facebook Group is closed and only international students outside of Norway and the Nordic countries at the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Technology are accepted.
The buddies are available from mid-July.

Solar Cell Systems and Materials
First year: DTU. Second year: NTNU.
The overall goal of the study track is to educate MSc level candidates with theoretical knowledge and practical competence, qualified to a professional career in the PV industry, or for PhD level studies in the field. The study track focuses on the fundamental principles behind- and the application and development of- photovoltaic materials and/or devices, and systems. The students will, based on bachelor background, have the opportunity to choose between a physics direction and a materials science direction.
In the first year at DTU, a broad basis in energy systems, technology and economics will be offered to all students. The fundamentals of solar energy harvesting are provided, in addition to basic courses in semiconductor physics and materials synthesis.
In the second year at NTNU, depending on study line/direction, advanced courses in solid state physics, optics etc. will be offered to students in the physics direction. For students in the materials science direction, courses covering process metallurgical, electro-chemical and chemical methods to synthesize semiconducting and light harvesting PV materials are offered. In addition, courses in PV Si-materials processing such as crystallization, wafering and passivation are available. The year at NTNU contains a 15 ECTS project, in addition to the 30 ECTS MSc project. Depending on project and MSc direction, course choice will be recommended by project supervisor.
