✔ Experience World Class Engineering Education
Our academic courses have been specifically designed to produce distinctive leaders for the increasingly globalized energy industry of the 21st century. Complete with practical experience at some of the world class facilities, it will:
✔ Enable graduates for positions in economics or planning departments of energy ministries, energy companies, electric and gas utilities, independent power producers (IPPs), energy service companies (ESCOs) and energy consulting firms.
✔ Prepare graduates with the knowledge and skill in operational management of power utilities, Smart-grid and Micro-grid.
✔ Train graduates for positions in national and international institutions, research and development departments of industries and energy utilities, energy conservation agencies and consulting firms.
✔ Prepare graduates to efficiently managing energy companies in the increasingly globalized business environment through modern management approaches.
✔ Energy specialization conducts strategic state-of-art research to support technology, market and policy development.
✔ After completing the program you will stand out for your ability to integrate scientific principles, engineering knowledge and management techniques in developing innovative solutions in the water management industry.
✔ Learn from diversity
The student body in AIT consists of students from all over the world where you will get to share and learn personal experiences which will enhance your own exposure. Your fellow class mates will represent a wide cultural diversity and also consist of various study backgrounds, professional experience and a worldwide network. This variety of profiles will help you develop your multi-cultural skills, and build your global network.
Area of Specialization
✔ Energy Technology – It focus on Renewable Sources of Energy (RSE) and Rational Use of Energy (RUE). The RSE encompasses the fundamentals and practical aspects of solar thermal and photo-voltaic conversion, thermo-chemical and biological conversion of biomass, other renewable energy sources and the environment. The RUE deals with energy conservation, energy efficiency and energy management in building and industry. An indoor laboratory and and Energy park, Regional Energy Resources Information Center, International Energy Journal, COGEN-Energy, Meteorological station are available for academic, research and demonstration.
✔ Electric Power System Management – It focus on the emerging issues of the evolving electric utility business environment, regulations, smart grid and electric vehicles to grid and vice versa. In addition, it provides opportunity to learn how power generation can be made user and environment friendly from renewable power sources, e.g., wind, solar, which tend to be intermittent, distributed and often low in power density. A simulation laboratory supported with necessary hardware and software facilities, complements the degree program in providing computer tools for power system analysis, simulation, planning, optimization and management.
✔ Energy Policy, Planning and Economics – It focus on policies, planning and economics related to energy access, energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies. Markets, regulations and investment are covered in this area. Special emphasis on policies, planning and policy analysis using energy-economics-environmental models. The activities of this specialization are linked with international, regional and national projects providing an appropriate framework for practical training.
✔ Energy Business – It integrates core business management courses with core energy courses related to energy economics and planning, energy resources and technologies, electricity and other energy industry-specific courses.
✔ Energy and Sustainable Development
✔ Renewable Technology Diffusion and Integration to Energy System
✔ Techno-economic Assessment of Renewable Energy Technologies
✔ Improving Energy Access
✔ Regional Electricity Integration
✔ Energy Efficiency and Barriers
✔ Smart Grids
✔ Energy Policies, Pricing and Incentives
Students who successfully complete the program will be awarded the Master/PhD degree in Energy. This degree will be awarded by AIT.
