 Profile:

MANIT was chosen as the nodal centre for energy theme under Indo-UK RECs project in 1994 by Government of India. Energy centre, MANIT Bhopal was inaugurated by the former president of India late Dr. Shankar Dayal Sharma on 12 July 1997. Energy Centre premises have a built up area of about 3000 sq m. Many associated faculty members have received extensive training in specialised fields of energy in different British Universities and industries under indo- UK RECs project. The centre has developed nine laboratories in various specialised area like energy conservation, energy audit solar thermal and PV technology, wind energy, heat transfer systems etc.

In 2004, Department of Energy was created for Post-graduate and PhD program and in 2007 it became the pioneer in India to start Under-graduate program in Energy Engineering, with intake of 40 students. Many research and development projects and consultancy projects were taken up and completed by the energy centre. The centre is currently running Two PG program; M.Tech in Renewable Energy and M.Tech in Green Technology. The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, MNRE Govt of India, has recognised the Energy Centre for award of Post-graduate Fellowships for M.Tech as well as Ph.D. program.

 

 

 Objectives of the Centre:
1. To develop sustainable infrastructure by providing solutions to acute problems in energy security
2. To integrate the efforts of scientists and engineers working with different aspects of green energy
3. To provide quality education through regular educational programs (such as M.Tech., Ph.D.) and short term programs (with duration 1 week, 2 week, month), for providing trained manpower to industry in the area of green energy and energy efficency
4. To promote education and awareness related to energy and environment by becoming a nodal center for Central region of India.
5. To contribute to grass-root level research and deployment in the field of energy and environment.
6. The centre aims at providing quality postgraduate education to meritorious undergraduates with keen interest in both the fields of green energy and energy efficiency.
7. Energy centre is proposed to closely associate with industry and several national & foreign academic institutions of repute with an aim to foster cutting edge research and establish ourselves as a leader in this field
8. To strengthen and rationalise the research, demonstration and development efforts in all green energy technologies
9. Energy centre is dedicated to accelerate the deployment of renewable energy and low carbon generation technology through the utilization of Biomass, Wind, Hydro Power, Solar PV and Solar Thermal energy.
10. By the objectives and goals described above, it is believed that Energy centre achievement would lead to "Green Energy for Green Campus”. The centre's dream is to turn MANIT into a GREEN CAMPUS by introduction of green energy and energy efficiency approach.

With these objectives, in mind Energy centre could contribute significantly in making India a world leader in this area and make a social impact as well.

B.Tech (Energy):

  • Started: 2008
  • Discontinued: 2012

M.Tech (Renewable Energy) (Started:2012)

  • Started: M.Tech (Energy)                             1998
  • Renamed:  M.Tech (Renewable Energy)         2012

The thrust given by the Govt. of India under National Action Plan on Climate Change and Jawahar Lal Nehru National Solar Mission has suddenly created the need to train large human resource in the field of new and renewable energy especially with expertise in solar energy. M.Tech in renewable energy is designed to equip graduates and working professionals with a broad training understanding of energy production, delivery, consumption, efficiency, economics, policy, regulation and environmental impact. These are considered in context of sustainable renewable energy supply with emphasis on solar energy systems. Students with B.E./B.Tech /in Energy, Mechanical, Electrical, Chemical, and Architecture are eligible for the program.

M.Tech (Green Technology)

(Started: 2012)

The Thrust given by the Government of India under National Mission on Sustainable Habitat, Green India and Sustainable Agriculture has suddenly created the need to train large human resource in the F=field of Green Technology. The Global climate change argument pales in comparison to the consequences the world faces, if realistic solutions are not found to address the world energy crisis. Green technology is the application of energy science and green concepts to conserve the natural environment and resources, and to curb the negative impacts of human involvement. Sustainable development is the core of Green technologies. Green Technology is a cutting edge program designed to equip post-graduates with multi-disciplinary skills and knowledge in the areas of green energy generation, green computing, green building, green processes, waste management and energy and environmental sustainability etc.The goals of this rapidly growing highly interdisciplinary field include i) sustainability - meeting the needs of society in ways that without damaging or depleting natural resources, ii) innovation - developing alternatives technologies with minimum environmental impact and iii) Waste Management- reducing waste and pollution .With the country going for green energy production, the course would have a big impact towards fulfilling the country's requirement for strong human resource and research back-up for the industry. Students with B.E./B.Tech in any descipline  are eligible for the program.
