AHEC also offers Ph.D. Programme in the field of renewable energy and two Ph.D. degrees have so far been awarded in AHEC and three Ph.D. thesises are in progress.

The course is designed to impart long term training in all aspects of "Alternate Hydro Energy Systems" to in-service engineers holding recognised degrees (with atleast 60% marks) in Civil / Electrical / Mechanical, Industrial / Chemical / Electronic / Computer / Agricultural / Environmental Engineering with at least two years job experience. Study tours to the projects under construction form the important and integral part of the curriculum and the students are required to prepare a comprehensive report on the basis of given data for a project.

The selected candidate will be admitted to three semester M.Tech. programme subject to rules and regulations of the Institute in force. In the 3rd semester, the dissertation work will be carried out by the students.

The following academic programmes are available in "Alternate Hydro Energy Systems":
(i)   Master of Technology in "Alternate Hydro Energy Systems".
(ii)  Master of Technology in "Environmental Management of Rivers & Lakes ".
(iii) Ph.D. degree in "Alternate Hydro Energy Systems".

The medium of instruction at the Institute is English. The foreign students are therefore, required to have adequate working knowledge of English language.

AHEC has on its staff scientists with extensive experience in the planning, design, implementation, operation and maintenance of small hydro power projects as well as the development of other renewable energy sources. Services of the staff of various other Departments of the Institute will be extensively utilised as and when required. In addition, experts are invited from various organisations related to the development of Alternate Hydro Energy Systems as per the requirement of the course.
