to offer a degree in ‘B.Sc (Hons) in Solar Energy & Renewable Technology’. An MOU has been signed to this effect on August 5th 2016.
The University of Mysore has been ranked as one of the top 10 Universities (9th Place) in the country (India Today, June 30, 2014)
Join to MAKE INDIA SHINE!
There is rising trend in the Renewable Technology & Solar Energy Industry. With increasing demand there is short fall in supply as many industries still depend on fossil fuels which unlike waves, wind and sun are not renewable energy. And such a situation has given rise to so many opportunities that we could easily say the Golden Era of this industry has just begin. But there is also a greater challenge in getting right professionals who can bring about an effective change in this area. Hence we need an effective education system that could nurture interested individuals into experts who could create inspiring history in the field of Solar Energy and Renewable Technology
The goal of bringing in such a specialised course is to develop more human resource in this field that are trained to innovate, to explore different techniques, skills and its implementation in all geographical locations of India; to create specialists who would teach and further promote research in this area. It is our dream to educate and develop professionals who would contribute in making India green and great.
B.Sc (Hons) Solar Energy and Renewable Technology is a specialised four years course that is recognised by Mysore University. The degree too is awarded by The University of Mysore. During these four years the students are taught to install, operate and repair solar systems. It also develops skill in troubleshooting, maintaining, and repairing photovoltaic equipment, including how to perform maintenance, repair, or replace solar panel parts to correct problems. They are trained to perform diagnostic analysis, demonstrate an understanding of solar energy industry standards and apply safety principles. As a part of curricula they are taught Fundamentals of Electricity, Health and Safety in the Field, Programmable Logic Controls and Control Systems, Business Concepts for Renewable Energy, Photovoltaics, Solar Energy Technologies, Solar Thermal etc.
Solar Energy and Renewable Technology is a field that requires will need more graduated manpower that is well trained and educated on the latest happenings in Solar Energy & Renewable Technology to meet the growing demand. The opportunities are manifold. From research and development to manufacturing of solar power materials, construction and operation of solar power plants, and solar power installation and maintenance to entrepreneurial options, there are a lot of lucrative vacancies that could set a right professional for life. A graduate in this stream can even opt to appear for Civil Services Examination and chose to become IAS, IFS, etc.
