The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kanpur has launched a unique eMasters degree program in Renewable Energy and e-Mobility.
The global renewable energy market is expected to touch $2 trillion by 2030, thus requiring a highly skilled workforce to address challenges and seize opportunities.
The new program, designed by the Department of Sustainable Energy Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Materials Science & Engineering, and Electrical Engineering, is intended to build a capable and highly skilled workforce that can work towards environmental responsibility.
The executive-friendly eMasters degree program does not require a GATE score to apply. It can be pursued without pausing professional careers. The flexibility to complete the program within 1-3 years has been provided as a bonus, IIT Kanpur said.
The e-Masters program in Renewable Energy and e-Mobility will help harness the possibilities as the world accelerates its shift from fossil fuels, curbing carbon emissions, and combating climate change.
The program is tailored to expose the professionals to various technological aspects of this shift, including the generation side sources like photovoltaic, wind, batteries, hydrogen and the very fast-growing Electrical Vehicle domain.
These twin forces of renewable energy and e-mobility collectively drive innovation, reduce reliance on non-renewable resources, and foster a greener, more resilient world, addressing environmental and economic imperatives.
The industry-relevant program offers a high-impact learning experience featuring live interactive weekend classes and self-paced learning.
Distinguished faculty and accomplished researchers from IIT Kanpur lead the way. The program’s 60-credit curriculum, allows for seamless credit transfers towards higher education opportunities like MTech and PhD programs at IIT Kanpur, with the potential for waiving up to 60 credits.
