A certified technical training program for graduates was designed in the frame of the European Tempus Project entitled “Solar Energy Systems Design using Advanced Learning Aids (SOLEDA)”. The program is focused mainly on decentralized solar energy systems based on three major components, theory, simulations designs and installations, and practical training. The program consists of 3 basic parts, solar radiation, photovoltaic systems, and thermal systems.

Coordinated by the University Complutense of Madrid (UCM), the program design was carried out in collaboration of 12 international institutions: universities, companies, academies and NGOs from Europe and Egypt.

The duration of the certified diploma is one year (i.e. 2 semesters) and its delivery is taking place at the partnering Egyptian Universities (Fayoum University, Cairo University and South Valley University).

In addition, in order to meet the needs of the solar installation technicians, a two week intensive training program is designed.

Other than improving education, raise environmental awareness and teach Egyptians in designing compliant solar energy systems, the objective of the program is to bridge the skills gap between academia and industry, and provide aspiring entrepreneurs the technical staff necessary for starting businesses in the field of solar energy systems.
