Power Management Overview
Privatisation of power sector has given rise to new career opportunities in this sector
Power sector in India has reached a stage where it needs efficient and trained professionals who can contribute in making of quality policies and plans. With the privatisation of this sector, new opportunities and challenges are emerging. In its wake, many institutes offer a study programme in Power Management that deals with managing power in a way that would lead to maximum value creation. Professionals in this field have to create powerful designs, formulate and deliver them in relation to power production.
A programme in Power Management empowers candidates with unique skills required to administer and control regular power supply and computer requirements. It teaches them concepts across the spectrum in generation, transmission and distribution. It helps in keeping students abreast of latest developments in the industry and inculcates in them the expertise to visualise the future trajectory of the power market. For this reason, most of the institutes organise regular workshops, industry expert sessions etc.
