program overview

Prepare for a career in M. Tech.

The restructuring and deregulation of electric utilities together with recent progress in new and renewable energy technologies introduce unprecedented challenges and wide scope for power and energy systems research and open up new opportunities to young Power Engineers. Conventional Power system is redefined and power electronic components are incorporated along with the existing system. This includes flexible ac transmission, HVDC links embedded in the conventional ac transmission networks etc. Further, use of renewable energy such as solar and wind power, coupled with higher efficiency and conservation, will be the key factors to a sustainable world for future generations.

M. Tech. program in Power and Energy Engineering is intended to explore the above mentioned challenges and also initiate research activities. This program provides necessary theoretical background with a good blend of applied mathematics along with in depth coverage in analysis of power and energy systems. The core courses include sustainable, economic, efficient and reliable energy conversion, generation, transmission, distribution, storage and utilization of electric energy, including application of power electronics in power system operation and control.

Duration of the Course: Two years

Alumni Speaks

Aneesh Rajeev
Power System Consultant | RINA Consulting Ltd | UK

Right from the word go, the day I stepped in Amrita, I was in the awe of the infrastructure the college had to offer to its students, but more than that what really amazed me was the effort put in by the faculty of EEE Department and the management to groom its students to be at par with the professional and corporate needs. Today in the corporate world I find myself at home in most of the circumstances, and that has a lot to do with the rigorous and apposite training given to me during my entire tenure at Amrita. Needless to say, Amrita provided the perfect platform for technical skill development as well as for personality development. The instruments, labs, libraries are of superior quality and have everything that one needs to gain in-depth knowledge in the field of Electrical and Electronics Engineering. I thank Amrita for instilling in me the competitive skills and for teaching me how to be passionate and competent in every endeavor
