Master of Science in Alternative Energy


Master of Science in Alternative Energy KPT/JPS(PA 2730)10/18

Our program, Master of Science in Alternative Energy has been designed to provide students with the knowledge regarding the issues related to alternative energy sources as well as sustainable energy sources. Students are also educated about the varied alternative energy sources and the limitations that exist as far as extracting of useable energy is concerned. Our highly qualified academic staff also helps the students to gain an understanding of the history and fundamental principles of alternative energy.

For successful completion of Masters degree in LUC, each candidate should publish minimum of Two research articles in scopus indexed journals, with Lincoln affiliation.

Our aim is to help the students acquire an understanding of the need of alternative sources and the importance of energy efficiency. We also focus on the prime sources of alternative energy as well as the cost-benefit ratio of the alternative energy sources. Students also learn about the cost of energy usage and the infrastructure facilities required for extracting alternative power. This learning will help the post graduate students to achieve success in their respective professional field.
