New Jersey Institute of Technology
Newark, NJ 07102
Welcome to New Jersey’s science and technology university. We're proud of our 130 years of history, but that's only the beginning of our story - we've doubled the size of our campus in the last decade, pouring millions into major new research facilities to give our students the edge they need in today's demanding high-tech marketplace.
his is a beginner course in the study of solar photovoltaic (PV) cells, modules, and system components; electrical circuits; PV system design and sizing for use on homes; solar electric products and applications; and understanding energy conversion from sunlight to electricity, and working with solar conversion equipment. This course is based on a model developed by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) Photovoltaic (PV) Entry Level Solar Panel Installation Course and will give students the book knowledge and hands on experience needed to pass the (NABCEP) "Entry-level Solar Photovoltaic Certificate of Knowledge" exam. It is not intended to meet or replace the requirements for a Licensed Electrician.
NJIT is New Jersey's public technological research university. Research funding has grown dramatically over the last decade. In 2009, research expenditures were more than $92 million. Research is conducted by faculty investigators, teams and interdisciplinary centers. Read an overview of research at NJIT.
The university's research efforts are the core that binds together three other mission elements:
INSTRUCTION: Researchers engaged in the forefront of science and engineering infuse knowledge and enthusiasm in their classroom teaching, and involve students in work that takes them outside of the traditional classroom experience. PhD degrees are offered in 19 disciplines.
ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT: Our researchers work on problems distilled from the practice of their professions. As a result their accomplishments fuel economic growth - defining new products and services and generating new businesses. Interactions with industry set a context for scholarly research that has both intellectual integrity and utility.
PUBLIC SERVICE: Knowledge developed in our faculty and students becomes an invaluable asset guiding state and municipal leaders in policy formation and improved operation of government services and civil infrastructure.
