M.Eng/PG Diploma in Energy Technology

The whole world faces a daunting array of energy & environment relatemechd challenges. Therefore, the energy sector should be analyzed in isolation, but with interrelation to environment and society. For such analysis, a sound knowledge on all the related areas and associated skills are vital not only for technical aspects of energy but also for managing, advising and policy making in the sector, through well-structured and planned educational framework.

So that the postgraduate course in energy technology is developed with reference to synthesis of trends in sources, technologies and relevant environmental and social aspects. The main objective of the course is to diffuse the fundamental knowledge and state of the art of the Engineering Sciences involved in Energy conversions, conservation & utilization. Enhancing the knowledge of Engineers in contributing to national, regional 7 global energy environmental issue and clean & efficient technologies is expected from the course as well.
