Objectives of the program

The objective is to train students from diverse science and engineering backgrounds as professionals and scholars in the energy and associated sectors.

The graduates of this program will be able to take a multidisciplinary and systems-level perspective on technology, policy, and environmental sustainability issues in the energy sector. The program will contribute to creating human resources that can effectively engage with the complex challenges associated with the energy transition and can take up leadership positions in the future energy sector.

Program structure

The program is designed to establish a multidisciplinary Foundation in energy engineering while allowing students to specialize and customize their learning based on their interests and future career opportunities. Specifically, the program has the following key elements:

Foundation Courses

Designed to enable students of varying disciplinary backgrounds and professional experiences to refresh and strengthen their knowledge of the foundational disciplines for the program (i.e., engineering mathematics, thermal engineering, electrical engineering, and process engineering).”

Core Courses

To build a common multidisciplinary knowledge base in energy engineering, climate change, sustainability, environment, and economics. The core courses will also provide hands-on experience with technologies and experimental methods for the energy transition through laboratory courses and research projects.

Program Elective courses

To be chosen from a list of courses. It would allow students to acquire in-depth knowledge and skills in their chosen specialization track while offering the flexibility of customizing the program based on their interests and career goals.

M. Tech. Research Project , industry internship/project, Laboratory

These components of the program would provide students the opportunity to enhance their computational and experimental skills. Student would be able to work on projects that are relevant to the needs of industry while contributing towards improvements and developments on cutting-edge problems in the energy sector, and developing their research and project execution skills.

Learning Methodology

Conceptual Learning

This type of learning equips students with the intellectual framework to analyze complex challenges and devise innovative solutions. Faculty interaction with students is a pivotal aspect of the program. It holds particular significance due to the complex and evolving nature of the subject matter. It fosters critical thinking, enabling students to make informed decisions in the pursuit of sustainable energy practices which can result in positive results.

Short term courses

offer a concentrated burst of specialized knowledge and skills. These modules are designed to address specific facets of the field, providing students with targeted expertise in a relatively brief period. These courses often delve into emerging technologies, policy frameworks, or niche areas within sustainable energy.

Field visits

Field visits play a pivotal role in bridging theoretical knowledge with practical applications. These excursions offer students a unique opportunity to witness firsthand the real-world challenges and solutions in the realm of sustainable energy.

Laboratory components

The program encompasses two laboratories : Energy Systems Computational Laboratory and Clean Energy Technologies Laboratory. Purpose of the state of art laboratories would be to provide exposure and hands on experience for various software(s) and tools used for analysis of energy systems, economics and conduct project appraisals and an edge for experimental understanding of various clean energy systems and decarbonization technologies. Students would be able to use these facilities to develop conceptual understanding , simulations and validation of while working on research and academic projects.

Seminar Course

Seminar course is designed to facilitate interaction(s) of students with experts in energy and policy sector from academia, industry internationally. Seminar course may also consist of presentations on the recent advances from students.
