Considering that conventional energy sources such as fossil fuels are soon going to come to an end, it is high time the world gradually shifts to renewable energy. Rapid industrialization has depleted our sources of oil, gas and coal. For long our industries have been dependent upon them. They have also resulted in massive pollution, as a result we are now having to suffer the consequences of global warming, melting polar caps & glaciers, erratic monsoons and rising sea levels. It is feared that in the years to come, because of the melting of the polar caps and glaciers, the sea level will rise and many of the cities near to the coast will get submerged. The PhD program on renewable energy sources addresses the challenges in the development of renewable energy as our mainstream energy source.
Eligibility and course duration
M.Sc or M.Phil in renewable energy or other relevant fields. Entry to the program is through entrance test and interview.
Takes above 3 years to complete the program.
More about the course
The main focus of the PhD projects in renewable energy is to study and research the prospects of harnessing renewable energy at a wider level, so as to replace our conventional energy sources. The PhD projects can be selected on a variety of topics. A few such topics are on- energy storage, environmentally smart cities, sustainable building materials, solar or other green energy powered vehicles, solar water desalination systems, rooftop solar or wind power set ups, waste management & disposal, solar powered cooling, photovoltaic systems and so on. While undergoing this program the PhD scholars get support in the form of training on specific topics and guidance of supervisors for the conduct of their research project. The idea behind each of the PhD project is to undertake research in the field of clean energy and to improve upon the energy efficiency of the renewable energy systems with minimum of damage to the environment.
Those undertaking the PhD program get a head start over others, when it comes to job in the renewable energy sector. Since the field is still in a development stage, there are a lot many research opportunities in this sector. Other than positions in research there are also scope in the renewable energy industry in the role of administrator, production manager, director, scientist, etc. There are scope in the teaching and education line too.
