TU Delft launches MicroMasters program Solar Energy Engineering on edX

Delft University of Technology (the Netherlands) launches a MicroMasters program Solar Energy Engineering via online platform edX on April 25. The program is developed to give (future) professionals an edge in the rapidly growing Solar Energy industry. By providing in-depth knowledge and engineering skills the program supports them to become an expert in photovoltaics, advance their career and contribute to the energy transition to renewable energy sources. The MicroMasters program offers four graduate-level online courses treating photovoltaic energy conversion, technologies, systems and the integration of photovoltaic systems in microgrids and a capstone project.

TU Delft students win Hyperloop Pod Competition

The excitement was tangible at the Award Ceremony for SpaceX’s Hyperloop Pod Competition. Amid great interest, the TU Delft students won the competition in Los Angeles. A year ago, Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX, challenged the 27 teams from all over the world to construct pods for the Hyperloop – a futuristic transport concept that could propel people and goods through tubes at extremely high speeds. During the weekend, the teams were invited to test their pods in a 1.2 km-long tube located adjacent to the SpaceX grounds in Los Angeles. ‘It was precisely this award that we had set our sights on. We tried to focus on every aspect and to create a pod that could easily be scaled-up,’ explained team captain Tim Houter. ‘And our hard work has now been rewarded, it is fantastic.’ The Delft Hyperloop team also received the award for the best construction and design. Students from the University of Munich went home with the other prize, awarded for the highest average speed.
