Suryamitra Program

Suryamitra Program

Suryamitra is Prime Minister Sri Narendra Modi’s most ambitious program. The dream of our Prime Minister of India is to empower India by generating 100 GW of green energy by 2022 by tapping the Solar potential. To realize this, a lot of PV technicians are required across India.

Suryamitra is the project launched by the Government of India, through its Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE).The responsibility of developing PV solar technology skills has been entrusted to the National Institute of Solar Energy (NISE) at the Central level and to Karnataka Renewable Energy Development Ltd. (KREDL) at the State level. Our college has been affiliated by MNRE/NISE/SCGJ to develop this skill in the youth of Northern Karnataka.

Department of E&E is looking after the successful running of Suryamitra Training to the youth of Karnataka. So far we have trained 360 Suryamitras. The training program is encouraging, and many solar companies have started recruiting our trainees and most of them are already working in the solar related companies.
