About Us

School of Energy Science and Engineering (formerly, Centre for Energy) at IIT Guwahati was established in May, 2004 to promote multidisciplinary activities focused to various facets of energy technology and systems in the form of research, teaching and consultancy. Looking into the potential and application of different energy resources from the north eastern region of India, it is emphasized that the School gives priority to activities in the field of bio-energy, small hydro-power, alternative fuels, clean coal technology, combustion and energy efficiency of systems etc. The research activities in the School are in the form of funded projects from various national and international funding agencies. The School currently has 5 dedicated faculty members from various educational and research backgrounds. Besides them, faculty members from various departments of the institute such as Biosciences and Bioengineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Design, Electronics and Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Physics are associated with the School for the promotion of interdisciplinary research for sustainable energy. To support the research work in the projects, the School has two academic programmes - Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and Master of Science by Research (MS-R). Moreover, a new Bachelors programme (B.Tech. in Energy Engineering) has been started by the School from 2022 looking into the current demand for professionals in the field of Energy. The facilities available at the School have been a great support for the students working in different areas at IITG as well for the students of various academic and research institutions of the North East.
