    The Energy Sciences major at Atria University will train and prepare you to contribute to the energy transition toward renewable energy technologies currently underway globally and in India. The training and skills provided will cover all critical areas in the energy industries of the future and enable you to become a leader in this emerging field. 

    This major is designed to help you understand and tackle specific problems associated with energy systems with special emphasis on renewable energy technologies, energy storage, energy data analytics, energy policy, and environmental regulation. You will first receive a strong foundation in the principles of energy sciences, followed by a broad overview and examination of the technology applications in the renewable energy industry. 

    You will learn concepts from physics, electrical, electronics, and mechanical engineering, with a focus on renewable energy systems. You will design renewable power plant installations and be able to see commercial plants actually work. You will also conduct performance tests and gain real-world knowledge in energy science and engineering, energy policy, public engagement, and business entrepreneurship relevant to clean energy systems.

     

    Specializations

    Students who take the Energy Sciences major will specialize in one of the following fields in their fourth year:

    • Renewable Energy Systems 
    • Energy Storage 
    • Energy Data Analytics 
    • Energy Policy and Environmental Regulation

    Please Note :BDes and BBA (PGD) students will specialize in areas of Design or Business Administration.

    Because the wind blows during stormy conditions when the sun does not shine and the sun often shines on calm days with little wind, combining wind and solar can go a long way toward meeting demand, especially when geothermal provides a steady base and hydroelectric can be called on to fill in the gaps.

    The increased consumption and usage of electricity have powered innovation and the growth of human civilization in the last century. At the same time, the resultant greenhouse gas emissions have caused the climate crisis we face today. A sustainable future demands that we shift to renewable energy systems.  

     

    We’ve taken some bold steps in designing the Energy Sciences major. To move entirely away from fossil fuels, and focus on renewable energy. Innovation in solar photovoltaic and battery design, improvements in grid design, and growing public awareness of the consequences of climate change have made renewables indispensable. Socially, economically, and environmentally – they are the most viable option for our future.
