Recognizing the rich potential available in the water resources and hydropower in
the state of Uttarakhand, the Government of Uttarakhand proposes to introduce a few special subjects
at different levels in technical courses in the area of water resources and hydropower. IIT Roorkee
has been asked to design and prepare the courses for different levels (Bachelor's Diploma and ITI) so

dealing with water resources and hydropower generation/distribution.
In order to orient the existing programme to be more
meaningful/oriented for water resources/hydropower development,
introduction of the following is proposed -
Special subjects as electives.
Special courses during vacations.

Apprentice in specific trades.
The subjects that are proposed to be covered amongst others may
