M.Tech in Power Electronics (MPE)
M.Tech in Power Electronics (MPE) started as a full-time Masters degree programme in the year 2006 with an intake of 18 students, with a healthy student-to-teacher ratio of 12:1 maintained over the years. The programme is aptly designed to provide the students with necessary impetus to pursue interdisciplinary R&D, corporate/industrial consultancy and entrepreneurial activities. The students have access to state-of-the-art equipment and laboratories such as Power Electronics Lab, Industrial Drives Lab, PLC/SCADA Lab and Renewable Energy Lab, enabling them to hone their technical expertise through practical exposure. A Centre of Excellence (CoE) in e-mobility has been established in collaboration with Greaves-Cotton, with the goal of providing on-hands exposure in design and development of Power Electronic Controllers for Electric Vehicles.
The programme offers a unique opportunity to its participants to gain industrial exposure by undertaking real-world projects under the aegis of MoUs with renowned corporate firms such as Bosch-Rexroth AG, Lapp India Pvt Ltd. and FluxGen. The students also benefit from the internship programmes offered by distinguished companies such as ABB, Nokia Siemens, Centum, Schneider Electric, Robert Bosch, Larsen & Tubro, FluxGen, etc. Students get enhanced placement opportunities in emerging sectors such as Renewable Energy, Industrial Automation, Electric Vehicles and Power System Protection and Control. The alumni are also employed in various Public, Private and Educational institutions. Maximum salary offered by industries varies from 10.0 to 12.0 Lakhs per annum.
The curriculum of the programme is fine-tuned and regularly upgraded to keep relevance with the research areas in vogue and dynamic industry requirements. The programme offers subjects such as Power Electronic Converters, AC/DC Drives, PLC/SCADA, Modelling and Simulation of Power Electronic Systems, Hybrid Electric Vehicles, Intelligent Control of Drives, Electromagnetic Interference and Compatibility, etc. M.Tech students get an opportunity to develop and showcase their technical talent through regular industrial training programs/ visits, seminars, workshops and conferences conducted by the department and institution. Further, students are also encouraged to publish and present their work in international conferences, symposiums and journals of repute.
