M.Tech. Green Energy Technology

The major subject areas covered in this program include alternate energy sources – energy generation, distribution, utilization, green nanotechnology, combustion technology, waste to energy, biofuels, etc. The course is aimed to train talented students in the area of renewable and clean energy technology and create scientifically and technologically skilled man power. This is program is designed for two years spread into four semesters. The course structure is framed with both hard core and soft core courses to substantiate both theoretical and along technical understanding of subjects with handful of experiences. In addition there will be some bridge courses. Most of the first semester courses will be on energy and modeling. In the second and third semester courses will be based on energy, environment, chemistry, management and other GET related fields. Students will select courses suiting background and interest. Each theory course will have a project component which will be either individual or group based.
