    The seminar on solar industry is very informative and interesting . The professor deliver the lecture in very beautiful way in which she tell us about the solar industry importance now a days . This is a cheapest and renewable source of energy and also friendly to weather . so in future our energy system mostly converted into Solar Industry.
    Thank you very much.

  • The learning is very informative,it outlines how efficient solar power is , its cheap and affordable that's the reason for it's growth because it can be acquired by the poor community too. Just a small solar 1m2 can produce around 100-200w.

    It's a very good and easy understand course . I am always grateful for this university for providing this opportunity
  • Zin Min Khant
    Very nice for me. And very useful. The solar system is one of your systems studied in successful times
  • Good information in the course but a link would work rather then clips of the same video that doesn't work
