About the Course

The energy sector is critical for socio-economic development. In the Indian context, the challenge is to provide affordable energy services to the population. The development of energy systems is also constrained by the depletion of fossil fuel, local environmental impacts and the problem of global warming and associated climate change. Energy security concerns also dictate the search for alternative transport fuels to reduce the dependence on imported oil. The energy sector is in transition and needs analytical and design inputs. There is significant need for engineering, design, research and development inputs in building efficient, economical and eco-friendly energy systems, new energy sources and conversion devices.

In this view, Bachelor of Technology in Energy and Environmental Engineering, a four year professional degree programme, is proposed to be offered in the College of Fisheries Engineering.

The programme provides the graduates with the knowledge base and the practical knowledge of how to use energy in the most environmental friendly way. The core curriculum introduces principles of energy efficiency, energy services, facility management, plant engineering, environmental compliance and alternative energy technologies and incorporates project-based labs that teach the processes and skills involved in planning, design and construction with an emphasis on fishery industries.

In addition, the students are exposed to application of engineering and management solutions to solid and liquid waste problems utilizing knowledge of contemporary technologies for the design and operation of landfills, incinerators, transfer stations, and processing facilities.

The curriculum also imparts knowledge to apply the basic principles of water and wastewater treatment to the design of major components of drinking water treatment systems, water distribution systems, wastewater collection systems, and wastewater treatment processes, to develop knowledge of hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities and to evaluate environmental and public health hazards, recommending technologies and approaches to cost effectively eliminate waste and pollution while reducing energy consumption.

Further, the curriculum provides students with a rigorous foundation in both theory and the practical, hands-on experience in the field of physical, chemical, and biological sciences in addition to course work in civil, mechanical, and fishery science and engineering. It is also notable that the curriculum is designed at par with the standards of ICAR and AICTE.

The graduates of this course have opportunities in research industries in designing, developing and building of renewable energy technologies, integration of renewable energy generation into existing power systems, electrical power and energy companies.
