HOD's Desk

The energy sector in India requires skilled Mechanical Engineering with significant expertise in conventional and renewable energy production technologies. The renewable energy industry has seen impressive, global growth over the last decade, and mechanical engineers have played a major role in enabling the world’s transition to clean energy and more sustainable practices. Mechanical engineers significantly contribute to the design of solar, geothermal power, wind, hydro, steam, and gas turbines. Many of the key skills that mechanical engineers learn and develop in mechanical engineering graduate programs have a wide range of applications in energy sector. Apart from this Mechanical Engineers have a huge role to play in the oil and gas industries’ equipment and machinery design. IIPE with its unique vision and mission is now about to start 4 year mechanical engineering program from the academic year 2023-24. In this program, students will learn and demonstrate key mechanical engineering concepts along with specialized courses focusing on the energy, oil and gas sectors
