The Photovoltaic is the branch of technology that deals with the production of electric current at the junction of two substances. Learning the fundamentals of photovoltaics conversion involves the topics in charge excitation, conduction, separation, and collection.

This [course_title] is developed to provide a deep understanding of Photovoltaic concepts, theories, and principles. It will cover both commercial and emerging photovoltaic technologies and other cross-cutting strategies present in our society.


This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.


Edukite courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must submit all the assignment of the course as part of the assessment. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by obtaining your Certificate at a cost of £49.
