Solar Decathlon Europe and the UPM reached an agreement to give our volunteers the chance to get credits or ECTS credits for helping us on the event during the 2012 competition. To get the chance to get this credits, the volunteers must be studying at the UPM (with the exception of the faculties of Industrial Engineer, Forestry engineer and mining engineer).
The UPM students will get 1 credit for attending the course “Volunteers program Solar Decathlon Europe” organized by the Architecture school of the UPM. The volunteers will also get 1 extra credit for every 40 hours of paticipation (up to 160 hours of volunteer work).
