Career in the course of Renewable Energy
Renewable Energy Engineering Management (REEM) prepares students in theoretical as well as practical knowledge of renewable energy technologies and management. The programme consists of core and elective courses in addition to a major project either in an industrial establishment or at a research/ consultancy organization dealing with renewable energy.
As the global economic market experiences hard time which is affecting all market sectors including power sector. Despite of this economic turbulence, renewable energy market manages a continuous growth. In recent years the majority of annual global investment in power generation is flowing to renewable energy instead of fossil fuel and nuclear. The renewable energy contributes in increasing the total energy mix in different countries.
Various institutes in Europe, USA and Asia are offering different renewable energy courses at different levels ranging from short courses to doctoral degree courses. Master’s program is also a popular curriculum in this sector covering solar, wind, biomass, fuel cell, energy efficiency in building etc.
A range of renewable energy fellowship schemes are also available by universities/institutions and also R&D institutions, to conduct research on all aspects of renewable energy. Opting for post graduate diploma courses is a good option for graduate engineers for their first footstep in this emerging sector. The probable job areas within the renewable energy sector are research & development, product development, sales engineering, project development engineering, system design engineering, construction engineering, operation and maintenance.
