Why Solar Energy Engineering & Commercialization?

The Solar Energy Engineering & Commercialization graduate program offers advanced, interdisciplinary education in solar energy to students with backgrounds in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM). The objective of the program is to enable graduates to pursue careers in industry, government, or the nonprofit sector that involve solar energy and its utilization. Students in the program must select courses from both technical and nontechnical tracks, including solar energy policy, spanning a number of academic programs and schools. Students will engage with the solar energy industry and/or government policymakers, as part of a required culminating applied research project. The degree program is meant to be completed in 12 months for full-time students, but may also be completed on a part-time schedule.

Financing Your Education

Fellowships through ASU and external resources, along with research and teaching assistant positions, offer many alternatives to fund your education expenses at ASU—often for multiple years or even the full course of study. Fellowship resources are limited, and many fellowships require U.S. citizenship or the right to work in the United States.

Fellowships are awarded on a highly competitive basis as part of the graduate program application process.

Financial Aid
ASU has many financial aid options. Almost everyone, regardless of income, can qualify for some form of financial aid. In fact, more than 70 percent of all ASU students receive some form of financial assistance every year.
