Master of Technology in Renewable Energy is postgraduate Energy Engineering course. Renewable energy systems specialization is designed to provide scientists and engineers with specific training in advanced areas of renewable energy technology. The emphasis is on the design, analysis and implementation of energy systems, with particular emphasis on renewable energy systems. The renewable energy policy specialization is designed to provide environmental scientists and policy analysts with training in advanced areas of renewable energy technology and policy. The program aims to give students real-world technical expertise in strategic renewable energy disciplines, as well as an in-depth understanding of the issues associated with renewable energies and their development, including the short and medium-term technical, technological, geopolitical and environmental challenges.

How is M.Tech. Renewable Energy Beneficial?

  • Course helps to train a new generation of researchers, scientists and engineers to manage the energy systems of tomorrow, with a particular focus on photovoltaic, energy vectors and storage, energy distribution networks, and wind and hydropower.
  • They have many non-technical jobs like customer care; marketing, HR, PR, sales, financing etc. are the roles for enthusiastic people with transferable skills.
  • They can be inducted into Senior Management. People with sufficient knowledge of this industry along with good decision making power as in other industries can be absorbed for the roles of CEOs, CFOs or business development.
  • They can also have government jobs such as policy makers, planning and development, researchers in renewable sectors etc.
  • Candidates with transferable skills and some knowledge of renewable energy sector can be absorbed here.


  • B.E./B.Tech. with at least 50% marks or Equivalent CGPA
  • Some reputed colleges and universities conduct entrance examination for admission to Degree course.
