AHEC also offers two Pool elective subjects to UG engineering students. AHEC also offers Ph.D. Programme in the field of renewable energy and two Ph.D. degrees have so far been awarded in AHEC and seven Ph.D. thesis are in progress.
The course is designed to impart long term training in all aspects of "Alternate Hydro Energy Systems" to in-service engineers holding recognised degrees (with atleast 60% marks) in Civil / Electrical / Mechanical, Industrial / Chemical / Electronic / Computer / Agricultural/Environmental Engineering with at least two years job experience. Study tours to the projects under construction form the important and integral part of the curriculum and the students are required to prepare a comprehensive report on the basis of given data for a project.
The selected candidate will be admitted to four semesters M.Tech. programme subject to rules and regulations of the Institute in force.
