How Delft University of Technology changed my life through Delftx Today I want to tell you how solar energy course changed many aspects of my life, and I mean not only academics, but also economic and environmental aspects. It all started when I enrolled in a course MOOC of TU Delft offered on the platform EDX.org, called "ET3034TUx Solar Energy" which ended on December 6 last year. I had not made ​any progress related to the energy of the sun, but if I had studied about modern physics and that is currently the science that most like me. This previous knowledge of solid state physics helped me understand a little more the lessons of semiconductor related, although these topics were very clearly explained by Professor Arno Smets in each of its lectures. Finally, the course culminated without committing any error in the exams and assignments so I got a score of 100% and a certificate of EDX of this course. After gaining all this knowledge, install my own PV system using mathematical tools provided for that purpose, and economic results of the system were very satisfactory. Now, I have a saving of over 50% of money, a continuous electric fluid and a contribution to the reduction of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere.

How Delft University of Technology changed my life through Delftx Now, I would like to help the “Wounaan” indigenous community living in Colombia, specifically in the department of Chocó, in the city of "El litoral de San Juan" which are suffering from lack of electricity 18 hours a day or more, and derive their electricity of diesel electrical generators, which do not satisfy the needs of this population and to generate many pollution. The need is part of a national project called "Ideas para el cambio" (Ideas for the change) and it was expressed in the following website Ideas Para el cambio.

I am currently waiting for a government response to the proposal to generate photovoltaic energy, it will take an investment of approx. € 40,000 and it would help 30 to 40 families.

Again, thanks to Delft University of Technology to offer this unique and free opportunity to all, thanks to Prof. Arno Smets and the whole team of Delftx and EDX. I would also ask the team Delftx be selected to be one of the winners of a one-week workshop in Netherlands and expand my knowledge and continue to help poor communities in Colombia, who have no access to electricity.

Example of the brand TUDelft Guys check this out..!!!!......TU Delft New reseach grant from Shell group.....Congrats TU Delft and Professors Report Misuse

SatyaNarasimham 13 days ago TU Delft will be funded for research into solar-to-hydrogen conversion. This was published today by Shell, FOM en NWO. The research "Earth Abundant Materials based Monolithic Photovoltaic-Photoelectrochemical Device toward 15 procent Solar-to-Hydrogen Conversion Efficiencies” of Dr A.H.M. Smets (EWI), Dr W.A.S. Smith (TNW), Prof.dr B. Dam (TNW) and Prof.dr M. Zeman (EWI), is one of the seven projects that were rewarded within the Energy programme ‘CO2 neutral fuels’.

Oh God, the more days pas, the more I am impressed by delft. One day I will be there :P

SatyaNarasimham 12 days ago

actually i am impressed by TU Delft last September.... Winner of solar car race championship....Wind energy.....solar energy....lot of research in renewable energy and intelligent grid systems..........then i decided TU Delft is my first priority for masters....then i applied...and now waiting for result.....Looking forward to work with them... 1.Certainly, TU Delft is a very good university –posted 12 days ago by ankolix

2.TU Delft is consider in the top 20 univ in this domain.In other domains its around top 40.Generally really good . –posted 11 days ago by panos13
