I felt it was a bit sophisticated than it acutally claims. Crytallograpy Basics are a must in order to understand some of the most profound contents in this course. Prof.Ross's teaching was really good but as i said it was put up in edx as an introductory course but in MIT their are two courses taken by undergraduates prior to this one in order to fully appreciate the depth of it you can check it here in the OCW Site , it would've been a bit comprhensive if 2-3 weeks were alloted to explain those requisites
This Course as it claims is an introductory course, but it does provide some Deep insights into the contemporary solar tech and its prospects, the best part of this course is the way prof.Smets starts from the most conspicous of concepts like the sun,Solar system etc., and build up the concepts upto to the manufacture of 3rd gen solar cells and their deployments into modules keeping in mind their environomental and ecenomical aspects. After doing this course you'll definitely end up appreciating the merits of going Solar. It motivated me so much that i'm now seriously considering doing my masters in Energy engg albeit being an electronics and comm. enggineering major in undergraduation.
