M Tech Thermal Power Engineering

About M Tech in Thermal Power Engineering:

M.Tech. in Thermal Power Engineering is a two-year (4 Semester) full-time postgraduate engineering programme aimed at shaping the student’s managerial and technical skills in the field of engineering. The aim of the Master of Technology in Thermal Power Engineering (M.Tech.) program is to prepare students for successful careers in the field of Thermal including Gas, Solar, Wind, Biomass etc., with exposure to on-job training for substantiation of Operational and Maintenance practices and concepts.

Career Opportunities:

Thermal engineers are required in the industries/companies that manufactures heat exchangers, A.C.s, Refrigerator, etc. They can also work in thermal power plants and hydro-electric power plant.

Career option in teaching field is also available for the candidates having postgraduate degree in thermal engineering.

Professionals of this field are generally recruited by the production firms. You can also get teaching jobs in various reputed universities and colleges.

After pursuing a degree in this field, you can easily find job opportunities in various areas like Engineering Equipment Industries, Nuclear Power Stations, Pollution Control Agencies, Space Research Organization, Oil Exploration and Refining, Thermal Power Stations, Energy Conservation Department, etc.

Unique Features:

The Department has been recognized as Research and Development Centre by Srinivas University for carrying out Research activities leading to Ph.D. Degrees. The department offers UG program namely, B.Tech. (Mechanical Engineering), and B.Tech. (Robotics, Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning) in addition to the PG programmes M.Tech. Robotics & Automation, M.Tech. Computer Integrated Manufacturing, and M.Tech. Thermal Power Engineering. At present, the department has Ph.D. scholars working on Nanomaterials, Composites, Alternative fuels etc.

Being a private university, we have a feasibility to form our own syllabus. Thus we have approached several industrialists and have framed the syllabus according to the industry requirements and prepared an Industry oriented syllabus.

The students of the department will undergo internship in various reputed organizations all over the country. The students participate in various National and International level competitions, events regularly. The department possesses the state of the art research facilities to support the academic programs and research. Several projects of the students have been funded by the Government of Karnataka.

The department has a distinguished record in both teaching and research. The faculty members have excellent academic credentials and are highly regarded. They have publications at National and International levels. Several faculty members serve on the editorial boards of national and international journals, review technical articles for journals on a regular basis and organize conferences and workshops.
