The Department of Energy studies was established in the year 2015 (later renamed as Energy Science in 2019) with major intention of promoting quality education in the arena of renewable energy. The rapid depletion of conventional energy sources due to worldwide increase in fossil fuel-based road transport, industrial activity, and power generation demands a predominantneed for the alternate and renewable energy. In the quest to reach this ultimatum,a postgraduate in energy science and research Programme is offered by the Department of Energy Science.
In the year 2019, with a mission to provide manpower with knowledge and skillfor the growth of India's energy sector with innovative energy technologies, the department has started to a new course M.Tech Energy Technology with the approval of AICTE New Delhi effective from 2020-21 academic year onwards.
The University has employed highly experienced and professionally qualified young and dynamic faculty members with background from industries and education in the field of renewable energy.The faculties of Energy Science are actively involving themselves in research and extension activities, paper and book publications. Attending and presenting papers at national and international level seminars and conferences.
The students are encouraged to make maximum use of library and computer lab which are available to them round the clock. The learning environment is always continuous and inculcates in the students. The Department strongly emphasis on quality education, effective teaching pedagogies and real industry interface to propel to a better career of the students.


To create responsible graduates, researchers and Entrepreneurs with technological excellence, professional commitment while upholding principles and integrity and social responsibility for serving national and global needs.


  • Adopting appropriate pedagogies in the teaching and learning process for inculcating the best academic excellence and practices.
  • Exposing the learners to the versatile experimental modes for enhancing their technical aptitude, skill sets and leadership which facilitates them to face the challenges of the swiftly growing technological world.
  • Promoting interdisciplinary studies and collaborative learning among learners to make them as team players.
  • Endorsing equality and providing social justice to students of different socio cultural and socio economic background by adopting simple and effective connectivism based pedagogy.


Department of Energy Studies established with a vision to provide training to the students and research scholars on renewable energy sources and to develop skill in energy sector.


Faculty members are undertaking the studies and research on various types of renewable energy sources to achieve the vision.

Value Added CourseBroucher


The programme is designed to give a highly qualified specialization in the field of Energy Science &Technology. The course provides a solid background in the power industry, nuclear plants, and renewable energy technologies. The energy sector provides tremendous opportunities for analysis, design of energy-efficient equipment and systems, innovative financing and project management, technology development, and fundamental research. The courses are offered under Choice based credit system (CBCS). Core, Elective and skill based courses are incorporated in the syllabi. The knowledge gathered in these courses will be applied in a group project where students work on a real-life assignment about the implementation of renewable energy in a certain area.
