The energy sector globally imposes significant research challenges in the development of new materials, devices and energy systems. To develop cost-effective and sustainable energy systems, vital research contributions may be required. In addition, these research solutions need to be unique so as to provide substantial energy security for the future. The sector largely requires huge manpower with design and engineering skills in renewable energy systems and components.
The program offered looks into aforesaid needs and is an exclusive program developed providing students with knowledge in the area of solar, biogas, biomass, wind energy, etc. In addition, students are exposed to alternative energy forms like tidal energy, ocean thermal energy conversion and geothermal energy. The program has its focus on energy generation from a non-conventional route as conventional forms of energy like coal and oil are on the verge of ending and are unable to cater to the needs of ever expanding population. The students in the program thus learn innovative concept of using these alternative energy forms addressing the global emission concern.
On completion of the program, the students can find themselves employed with renewable energy firms across various levels. Further, due to constant problems related to global warming new policies and framework are being instrumented by government of countries from time to time, therefore students can also look in the direction of being employed as specialized engineers in renewable energy, whereby they can impart their views and provide innovative solutions in answering pertinent environmental questions.
