In view of the ever increasing demand for energy due to the massive industrial, commercial and domestic growth in the country, Govt. of India plans to almost double the installed power generation capacity by the end of 12th plan. Such an ambitious plan requires massive capacity addition in the public sector and the private sector with a corresponding requirement of trained power professionals. In this scenario, a clear supply-demand gap is seen with respect to skilled and competent manpower available for the power industry in the country.

PGDC in Power Plant Engineering has been conceptualized by JSW Energy Centre of Excellence (JSWECE) and M.S. Ramaiah Institute of Technology, Bangalore (MSRIT) to fill the gap and create highly competent & employable manpower for the power sector. A Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between JSWECE and MSRIT to conduct the course at JSWECE premises developed by JSWEL. The course will be conducted under the autonomous status of MSRIT under Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) with faculty assistance from Department of Mechanical Engineering at MSRIT.

The course certification will be jointly by MSRIT and JSWECE under the guidelines of VTU. JSWECE conducts the course at its premises situated in the sprawling O.P. Jindal Centre located adjacent to the reputed JSW industrial complex consisting of the 7 MTPA JSW Steel Ltd., JSW Energy Ltd., Jindal Praxair Oxygen Company Ltd., JSW Cement, JSW Building Systems Ltd., etc. at Toranagallu in Bellary in Karnataka. The course is developed to enhance the employability of engineering graduates by providing the required power plant focussed modules and advanced topics which will provide them a strong foundation in the modern concepts in this specialization. Placement assistance will be provided by JSWECE at the end of the course either at its power projects or with other power generating companies in India and abroad.

The course covers the mandatory requirements under Indian Electricity Amendment Rules, 1981 and certifies the certificate holder to operate a generating station of capacity 100 MW and above.
