The Indian Power Sector with approx. 356.1 GW (as on 30/04/2019) installed capacity along with modernization of Indian Power Sector also with technological advancements and sophistication during last few decades has, in turn, been demanding trained man power. In addition, India is also likely to surpass 175 GW of Renewable Energy Target by 2022. The technical knowledge acquired from Engineering Colleges provides the basic foundation, which needs to be supplemented with the Applied Engineering skills so as to groom the engineers for efficient functioning at every stage of planning, designing, engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning, operation, maintenance, transmission and distribution of power supply industry.
NPTI recognized the need for making this technically trained manpower readily available to the Power Sector in line with its present and future requirements. It was felt that requirement of trained manpower for Power Sector could be fulfilled if the engineers after passing their engineering degree are groomed by conducting a technical course approved by the competent authority of Government of India and giving them an exposure to the theoretical as well as practical aspects.
The “Post Graduate Diploma Course in Thermal Power Plant Engineering” has been one of the many flagship programs of NPTI. Assessing the next decade’s requirements NPTI has now re-designed the course contents to suit the needs of the Power Sector. It is now re-named as “Post Graduate Diploma Course in Power Plant Engineering”. The course profile covers the emerging Power Sector needs. Product of the course has promising record of employment in the power industry.
