Master Courses

After admission, the students undergo a set of courses that help them understand the basics of Renewable Energy Engineering as per the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) with a total credit load of 70 credits, of which 30 credits are exclusively earmarked for their Thesis Research.

Master’s thesis research

After completing the courses in the first year, the students start their thesis research. Each student is assigned to an experienced faculty, approved by the Dean of School of Post-Graduate Studies, who would guide the student on his/ her choice of research topic.

Research internship

PG scholars are encouraged to have internship training at other institutes for a couple of months, either in India or abroad. Furthermore, the students are exposed to several scientific events like symposia and conferences.

Student Experiences

I enrolled in the Renewable Energy Engineering M.Tech. (Agri. Engineering) programme. I am currently doing my thesis in biohydrogen from agricultural residues. I selected this programme because of the myriad of engineering applications in the agriculture sector, the degree of flexibility, regarding the courses and the scientific research in Renewable Energy Engineering M.Tech. (Agri. Engineering) programme. Department have sophisticated instruments in the laboratory, which will help to carry out my research work. The PG teaching staff are always willing to help and answer your questions and set you in the right direction. The increased need for more sustainable and efficient energy usage and the interest of companies for agricultural engineers with a strong background in Renewable Energy Engineering made me select a thesis in this group. On top of this, Renewable Energy Engineering Group offers a wide range of thesis topics but the student is always free to broaden the research by collaborating with other research departments or companies.
