Dual Degree (B.Tech.-M.Tech.) Programme


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 50% 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 problem of global warming and associated climate change. Energy security concerns also dictate the search for alternative 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 systems, cost effective renewables, new energy sources and conversion devices.

The objective of the Dual Degree programme is to provide specialist engineers (post-graduates) 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 mechanical engineering (e.g. thermodynamics, thermal engineering----), electrical engineering (e.g. power electronics, electrical machines) and chemical engineering (e.g. transport processes). In addition to this are the core energy courses providing the required background for analysing and designing energy systems.
