Oneindia education has identified a few renowned institutions that offer B.Tech in Power Engineering.
GMR institute of Technology, Andhra Pradesh
GMRIT has taken a lead in offering B.Tech in Power engineering course for the first time in the state of Andhra Pradesh. AICTE has approved the course in the year 2012-13 with an annual intake of 60. This will be a great opportunity
for all those aspiring students who are looking for admission in GMRIT. The students who take up this course will have option of direct entry into a power plant without any special training which is otherwise required. The admission to this course will be along with the other branches through online EAMCET counselling and the students who wish to join may exercise the option.

National Power training Institute, Uttar Pradesh
B.Tech Power Engineering (Electrical/Mechanical) programme addresses the technical and human resource needs of the power sector, in context of remarkable changes in this particular sector since last decade. India, which is on growth trajectory, is witnessing high growth in all spheres of economy, and so does the power sector, the backbone of all industrial activity.
Power industry is multidisciplinary, highly capital intensive and as any other sector, human resource plays pivotal role in this sector. Power industry requires trained man power for project planning , implementation, erection, commissioning, operation & maintenance protection and transmission & distribution. No conventional engineering stream available in educational institutions can equip a person with such vast knowledge of different inputs required for the job performance in the power sector. Therefore, a specialised degree course is necessary for the manpower needs of power sector which is growing at spectacular rate. This four-year degree course, B.Tech. in Power Engineering (Electrical/Mechanical) which is being offered by NPTI (NR) is the first of its kind in the country. The program coverage under Electricity Act 2003, prepares skilled engineering executives for the power sector.

Pankaj Laddhad Institute of Technology and Management studies, Maharashtra
Electrical Engineering, sometimes referred to as electrical and electronic engineering, is a field of engineering that deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism. The field first became an identifiable occupation in the late nineteenth century after commercialisation of the electric telegraph and electrical power supply. It now covers a range of subtopics including power, electronics, control systems, signal processing and telecommunications. Pankaj Laddhad Institute of Technology and Management Studies is going neck-to-neck with the fast-changing world, the ever-growing challenges of limited resources, rapid climate changes and preservation of environment demand. All these changes require a new generation of mechanical engineers who can bring in their skills and produce more sources that can generate more power. At the Department of Mechanical Engineering, the institute is committed to achieving excellence in training not only competent man power for the profession, but in nurturing engineer-leaders with the ingenuity and drive to provide innovative and bold solutions to these global challenges.

Jadavpur University , West Bengal
The Department was established under the name of Power Plant Engineering in the year 1989 at the Salt Lake Campus of the university with a view to produce specialised engineers in the field of power generation, transmission and distribution. Since the year 2003, it has been renamed as Power Engineering Department. Today, the department offers both Bachelor of Power Engineering and Master of Power Engineering courses with student intakes of 40 and 18, respectively. The undergraduate course offers a diverse and interdisciplinary coverage of relevant mechanical and electrical engineering courses, and specialised courses on thermal, hydro, nuclear and renewable/non-conventional power generations. The course also contains a three-week credit-paper on power plant familiarisation camp, where students get an intense practical training in operating power plants. The postgraduate course offers several elective courses on advanced topics on power generation, transmission and distribution, besides offering several interdisciplinary papers related to power engineering. The department boasts of an excellent faculty pool with rich and diverse backgrounds of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and power engineering. Several laboratories equipped with modern equipment, a huge workshop and impressive computational facility for the students, faculty members and research scholars are the key to the active teaching and research environment of this small, but vibrant department.
