Abstract. Following recent economic trends in the field of solar energy and an increasing need for specialists, a Master Degree has been introduced at the “Politehnica” University of Timişoara last year. The Curriculum is applications oriented and covers both PV and thermal aspects. In this paper, we present some topics that are intended for laboratory classes: thermal circuits in a Solar House, which can also be used for demonstration.

Keywords: solar energy, education, curriculum, collectors, thermal circuits.
