Principal Director's Message
The National Power Training Institute (Northern Region) was established by Ministry Of Power, Government of India in 1974. Since its inception, NPTI (NR) has been the epitome of excellence in field of Power engineering training and education. The institute through its vision and imagination, strengthened by its continuous pursuit of excellence has brought a number of courses including a Bachelors degree in power engineering under its umbrella under the guidance of NPTI corporate office at Faridabad. Since power sector reforms of 1991 and opening of the sector for private players, the power sector investments are on upward swing and in recent times power generation companies and equipment manufacturers find a new sense of purpose. With countries ambitious target of adding 70,000 MW in the current five year plan, the investments in this sector are skyrocketing. India being a country of a billion people ironically faces a talent crunch in almost every sector and power sector is no exception. NPTI (NR) is doing its modest bit to develop world class, industry ready, technically skilled manpower for power generation, transmission and distribution sectors.
The four year degree course in B.Tech. Power engineering (Mechanical/Electrical) at NPTI (NR) was initiated with the belief that specialized knowledge in a particular domain is only way of survival in rapidly changing contemporary world. This is the first and a very unique long term academic program in country to meet the required skill set for a power engineering professional. In this particular program we focus on all nuances of power engineering with particular focus on thermal power engineering and the mandatory training environment under Indian Electricity Act, 2003. Our students undergo intensive training in top power sector companies like NTPC, NHPC etc both during as well as at the end of semesters as a part of this special curriculum.
