Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD) has funded the NORHED II project, Research Based Education for the Development of Hydropower Professionals (Hydro-Himalaya). The project aims to strengthen the research-based education at KU in the field of hydropower engineering by producing high-quality research, higher-quality graduates, and a better-qualified workforce. The project has three thematic areas: Effective Production of Hydro Energy, Effective Transmission of Hydro Energy, and Effective End-use of Hydro Energy.

 

The Master’s, PhD, and Post-doctorate programs at Hydro-Himalaya Project (HHP) attract individuals who share a deep aspiration to continue their career as Hydropower Professionals in Himalayan Region.
