Admission Open for MTech @ Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham

 

Academics

M. Tech. in Renewable Energy Technologies is a program offered at School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Coimbatore campus.

Renewable energy being the most important application area of engineering and technology in the twenty first century, this graduate programme is designed for quality learning in that sector. RE sector needs manpower with design and engineering skills in RE systems and components – this programme targets to impart these. The curriculum has an emphasis on solar and wind energy systems, in tune with the Indian national missions on these. Job avenues targeted are RE equipment manufacturers, farm developers and system operators; also, the qualified human resource requirement in RE teaching and research is potentially high.

The learning is guided through two parallel streams of electrical and mechanical disciplines. Core courses and electives of specialization are offered by faculty from various departments like Electrical and Electronics, Mechanical, Aerospace, Business Management, Science etc. A Renewable Energy laboratory developed through assistance from C-WET (presently, NIWE), MNRE and DST, Government of India, equipped with hard and soft experiment systems and real field data collection systems, provides active training support to the programme. Collaborations with global academic and industrial establishments too help in imparting quality learning in this programme. Amrita School of Engineering, Coimbatore won the prestigious IREDA – NIWE National Award 2016-17 for the Best Institution of Higher Learning in Wind Energy thanks to the research facilities and contributions made in this laboratory.

Vestas, Gamesa Siemens, Senvion, Mytrah, UL Vaisala, AWS truepower, enel, Orange, and, Envision are some of the firms where the graduates of the past three batches are presently working.
