Abstract

A student-led solar cell fabrication pilot line has been formed with the goal of encouraging young engineering students to pursue PV related research careers, and to better prepare them for addressing our future energy needs. One example of its impact is a five week REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) that was implemented on the pilot line. From evaluations administered at the start and end of the program, the most notable outcomes are the improvement of the participants' self-efficacy resultant from hands-on experience and a general increase in PV related knowledge.
