Online Course on Advanced Solar Collectors by IIT Guwahati [Dec 14-18]: Registrations Open


The Centre for Educational Technology, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati, is organizing an Online Short Term Course on Advanced Solar Collectors from December 14 to 18, 2020.

Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati is a public technical and research university established by the Government of India, located in Guwahati, in the state of Assam in India. It is the sixth Indian Institute of Technology established in India.

Course Objectives

The short term course aims to encompass the opportunities, challenges, and technologies related to the implementation of solar energy devices. Fundamentals and advances in solar collectors like solar thermal, photovoltaic, PV/ T’s, hybrid, etc. will be discussed. The lecture session broadly includes detailed analysis and design of various collectors, PV system design, numerical examples, economic analysis of different solar technologies which will further be helpful to the participants for designing a sustainable energy generation package from renewable energy.

Furthermore, a separate section on effective learning and teaching methodology will be included in the course. Faculty members of IIT Guwahati and experts from other reputed institutes will deliver lectures in the course.

Course Objectives
  • To enable the learner to understand the solar energy technologies in broadest terms which includes different aspects of solar collectors, their importance, advancements, environmental impacts, economical feasibility, energy sources, and their socio-economic issues.
