Career in Energy Engineering

Energy Engineering has evolved over the years and it includes courses related to power, control, instrumentation, electrical machines, etc. along with courses on various aspects of electrical energy generation, storage and transmission. In today’s age of energy crisis, fossil fuel depletion, and climate issues, a career in energy engineering is a great choice.

The field of study deals with energy services and efficiency, facility management, plant engineering, environmental compliance and alternative energy technologies. Graduates in Energy Engineering gain knowledge and understanding of the ways of using energy in most efficient and environment friendly manner. They go ahead in their professional lives to solve problems in processing, storage, distribution, and utilization of energy by using implementing methods like synthesis, analysis, design, and case studies.

The programme of B.Tech/M.Tech in Energy Engineering incorporates considerable components of science and different branches of engineering. The courses adds unique dimension as it gives sufficient emphasis on various aspects of energy engineering such as energy efficiency, energy services, facility management, plant engineering and non-conventional energy technologies. Thus this course of engineering has all the components of conventional electrical engineering along with the components which today’s energy sector requires.

Course Offered
B.Tech (4 years)/ M.Tech in Energy Engineering (2 years)

Duration
4 years for B.Tech
6 years for B.Tech & M.Tech
