The field of energy engineering covers both fundamental and applied research that involves development, design and usage of alternative energy, renewable energy and sustainable technology. Renewable energy covers solar, wind, hydro, tidal, biomass and hydrogen energies. Research areas for renewable energy covers machine development, instrumentation, energy generation, energy storage that are environmentally friendly. For development of solar energy system, its instrumentation covers solar tracking device, modification of stirling engine, water drainage system, solar mirrors and smooth operation for the energy generation for a solar bowl. Wind farm requires a generation system, energy distribution and energy storage facilities. Development of gasifier and purification of synthesis gas for generation of electrical energy direct from oil palm biomass and generation of gases from biomass and some aspects of biomass energy generation. Animal tracking system and development of automatics methane gas generation are challenges for this research. Development of smart window, smart chimney and use of photo voltaic in creating a healthy indoor environment are part of sustainable technology. Students are required to take courses in related fields as stated and to conduct research as well as presenting research results in seminars.
