In a previous blog post, I wrote about the 60-credit one-year MSc in solar energy engineering. In this one, I’m writing about the two-year 120-credit master program. Why should you select it in the first place? What are the differences and the extra? For me, I need to be honest, I regret not selecting the… Read More Solar Energy Engineering: Why Two-Year?
You may have heard that “Engineering students don’t go for parties”, but is it for real? Well, it isn’t completely true. It depends on your deadlines. This past Halloween there was a party organized in Locus (the hostel). I met a friend in the kitchen and asked him if he is going to the party… Read More Dealing with deadline stress

Being admitted to Dalarna University (DU) took me a long journey. It all started since I read that Facebook post about the Swedish Institute master scholarships. I always had that passion about travelling and studying abroad especially my most favorite field, “Solar Energy and Renewables”. So, at the beginning of December 2016, I applied for… Read More Admission journey to Dalarna University
If you’re reading this post, chances are that you are interested to know more about the solar programme at Dalarna University. Yes, the university website is thorough in detailing the syllabus, fee structure and the courses. But what I aim for with this post, is to help you out with understanding whether you should apply… Read More Solar Energy Studies at DU
End of first semester – Two days off and no plans? Take a cruise to neighbouring country Although the semester’s last written exam of solar thermal was tricky for most of the Solar energy engineering students, everyone was quite relieved since it marked the end of the extensive first semester. We had three days on our… Read More Cruising the Baltics – Stockholm to Helsinki
Evidently November was the busiest month for the students of Solar Energy Engineering. We had couple of written exams, labs, culminating projects, presentations, assignments, reports, study visit and everything topped up with regular, weekly workload of the courses. November started with joy by bringing the first snowfall of the season and the study visit to… Read More Restless November!
