Contents of the « Solar Thermal » specialization
prerequisite: basics in thermal transfer, fluid mechanics and energetics
Formation divided into 4 modules, modules are composed of 30 h blocks :
Fundamentals 60 h
• Radiative heat transfer
• Coupled heat and mass transfer
High Temperature 90 h
• Concentrating system and receiver
• Solar Plants
• Solar fuels
Low Temperature 60 h
• Solar collectors
Thermal Storage 30 h
• Solar conversion (heating, cooling, power)
• Very innovative formation with a unique focus on the CSP technologies
• Multidisciplinary skills : optics, thermal transfer, materials science,
thermodynamics, energetics,…
• Unique skills in system simulation (work with industrial softwares and
numerical tools dedicated to CSP design and simulation)
• Experience on unique solar facilities
 Solar facilities available
