This included a Master’s in Sustainable Energy Systems curriculum development workshop, a programme that will soon be introduced at NUST.
The first course focuses on training trainers who in turn pass on their knowledge to stakeholders from government, public and private institutions, lecturers and outreach personnel from Non-Governmental Organisations.
To maintain the momentum of capacitating the energy sector, the NUST Faculty of Engineering in conjunction with the Namibia Energy Institute (NEI) will be hosting a three-day short course, on Renewable Energy Resource Assessment and Solar Energy Technologies (Photovoltaic and Thermal Technologies) from 27 February - 01 March 2017, 08:00 – 16:30.
The courses are funded by the European Union (EU) and the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP), through the EDULINK-II Project, namely the Southern African Sustainable Energy Initiative (SASEI).
The project is implemented in a collaboration between NUST and the National University of Lesotho (NUL), University of Botswana (UB) and Hochschule Darmstadt (H-DA) in Germany. Collectively, the partners have developed Short Courses in Sustainable Energy.
