M.Tech Renewable Energy Engineering

M. Tech Renewable Energy Engineering is a unique program that provides the students with knowledge in the field of solar, wind energy, biogas & bio mass etc. The students are also introduced to the alternate forms of energy such as OTEC, Tidal energy etc and the program also provides significant knowledge on waste heat recovery.

Besides these topics, the program also touches upon the recent topics as Green building & Smart Grid. The focus of the program lies in the concept of power generation through a nonconventional route. As the reservoirs of conventional form of energy such as coal & oil are at the brink of ending, the major portion of global energy requirement is required to be met through alternate forms of energy like solar or wind energy. The alternate form of energy usage not only meets the major energy requirement but also addresses global emission concern. Thus, this program is a 2 in 1 solution for the energy crisis as well as environmental concern.

Through the course, students will find their career with companies working in the field of renewable energy. As the government is rolling out various renewable energy policies and benefits, there will soon be a rising demand for specialized engineers in the field of renewable energy in particularly solar & wind energy.

  • P.R. Roshan

    Course : M.Tech Chemical Engineering

    Experience :We are P.R. Roshan’s (M.Tech Chemical Engineering) parents and would like to take this opportunity to express our thoughts.
    As the session almost draws to a close we would like to thank the management, teachers, administrative staff and our special thanks to the cook for second trusted home.
    My son had a wonderful time and enjoyed the stay and experience at UPES. Short…..but definitely memorable and close to his heart. He has found some good friends. Needless to say he has grown in many ways and it will surely make a good foundation for his future.
    We are aware that it takes a lot of hard work in the background by the team of UPES to make this happen and most often all the efforts remain in shadow. But the results are the reflection of what has gone into the student.
    Hence, we would like to thank and share our deep appreciation and gratitude to the entire team of UPES for Nurturing, facilitating and encouraging growth in the most positive and supportive manner.
    Thanks & Regards
    Janani & Rajakrishnakanth, Chennai
