About Us

M Tech Power Electronics and Drives course was introduced by Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Amrita School of Engineering,Coimbatore, in 2003. Internship oppurtunities are available in core industries. A well-equipped laboratory to facilitate the research needs of graduate students includes experimental laboratory with three phase IGBT based inverter,FPGA and PWM card,PLC training kit, Dspace ACE training kit, NI-DAQ ,TMS kits and computer lab with softwares like MATLAB, OrCAD , LabVIEW, ETAP,PSCAD,DIgSILENT,Xilinx, MultiSim, etc. Alumni of the course are placed in ABB, Robert Bosch, L&T, etc. Students publish research papers in scopus indexed journals or conferences as a part of their course. Many students received best paper awards in various conferences for their research papers.

Duration of the Course: Two years


This course aims at training graduate engineers in the field of Power Electronics, with the state of the art techniques in system-level modeling analysis, design and integration of motor drives, renewable energy technologies, smart grids and electric vehicles. The course also covers advanced topics in digital signal processors and embedded controllers, which are very much needed for today's Power Electronics engineer. The Program culminates with a project work in which the students are encouraged to work on specific areas involving design, simulation, fabrication and testing of any power electronics system having research/industrial application values.

The major objectives of the M.Tech. programme in Power Electronics are to equip the students with adequate knowledge and skills in Power Electronics and to prepare them for the following career options:

  • Research programmes in Power Electronics, Electric Drives, Renewable energy technologies and related areas
  • Employment in R & D organizations related to power electronics, drives and sustainable technologies
  • Pursue doctoral research work in-house and various other premier R & D institutions
  • Work in power electronic circuit design and fabrication industries
  • Faculty positions in reputed institutions
