B. Tech. in Energy Engineering

The energy sector is critical for socio-economic development. In the Indian Context, the challenge is to provide affordable energy services to the population. At present official statistics indicate that 45% of Indian households do not have access to electricity. The development of energy systems is also constrained by the depletion of Fossil fuel, local environmental impacts (for example adverse health impacts) and the problems of global warming and associated climate change. Energy security concerns also indicate the search for alternate transport fuels to reduce the dependence on imported oil. The energy sector is in transition and needs analytical and design inputs. There is significant need for engineering, design, research and development inputs in building efficient conventional energy system, cost effective renewables, new energy sources and conversion devices. The objective of the program is to provide engineers to meet the challenges of the energy sector with cross cutting analytical skills. The course has been designed for the energy sector with relevant inputs from other branches of engineering. This is providing the required background for analysing and designing energy systems.
