M.Tech- Energy Technology (M.Tech.)

The Department Administrative Coordinator is Prof. Deepa Golani who has a huge experience in the area of Electrical Engineering. This new degree program has been developed to train students in the field of energy technology. The Energy Technical Specialist Associate in Applied Science degree will convey the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful in both the traditional and renewable energy fields. Here you will learn to handle tasks across the fields of electricity, heating, water and sanitation with a view to installing energy efficient solutions and optimizing structural installations and process facilities such as indoor climate systems, heat pumps and similar installations in buildings as well as industrial plants.
Course Overview

This course aims providing an introduction and overview of the broad field of energy technology. Course deals with the effects of power generation and energy utilization on ecology and climate, the effect of burning fossil fuels, waste materials, the ecological impact of emissions, transport of pollutants in air and environmental management and economics. A condensed cross-section of essential engineering concepts/principles from the domain of thermodynamics and heat transfer is provided, including a review of the concepts of energy and power, energy conversion, energy efficiency and basic thermodynamic cycles. An overview of global energy resources is also given, leading to a historic review of human energy use and power generation. Society’s energy demands and the pertinent energy that follows are analyzed from the perspective of different sectors, including industry, households, and agriculture, as well as the commercial and public sectors in Palestine. This course gives an overview of the use of solar (thermal and photovoltaic), hydroelectric, wind, geothermal, ocean thermal, wave, tidal and geothermal energy, as well as energy from biomass. Broad-based curriculum enables students to seek employment in different sectors of the energy industries.

Takshshila Institute of Engineering and Technology established a M.Tech Course in the area of Energy Technology in the year 2011 with the prime objective to focus on Green Energy Technologies.

Meeting the increasing demand for energy poses many challenges: increasing efficiency, developing new supplies and safeguarding the environment. Technology will play a critical role in meeting these challenges. Course Snapshot
