In view of the growing need of qualified manpower in the Wind Energy sector both in national/international level there is a need to start a masters level course in wind energy in the universities/colleges. This may help to get suitable manpower in the wind industry/ universities/research institutions. As per the direction of the R&D Council of National Institute of Wind Energy a syllabus committee has been constituted under the chairmanship of Prof. Sujay Basu, Director, school of Energy Studies, Jadavpur University, Kolkata to prepare a suitable syllabus, which in-turn be recommended to universities / colleges for implementation. Accordingly the committee met thrice and finalized the syllabus for all of the subjects and electives for a two year Master’s Degree course. The prepared syllabus has been forwarded to the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), New Delhi for consideration and approval and also forwarded to the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi for implementation in some of the universities. The Sathyabama Deemed University, Chennai is in the process of implementing the Syllabus for a M. Tech. Wind Energy Course.
