It’s my proud privilege to welcome you to the THDC Institute of Hydropower Engineering and Technology, Tehri, Uttarakhand (THDC-IHET) which is one of the unique propositions of the industry-academia partnership in the country. This institution was conceived jointly by the THDC India Limited and Veer Madho Singh Bhandari Uttarakhand Technical University (formerly Uttarakhand Technical University) Dehradun in the year 2011 and has completed more than a decade of its service to technical education. THDC-IHET started its journey as a constituent college of the University and got upgraded to the campus Institution of the Veer Madho Singh Bhandari Uttarakhand Technical University (VMSBUTU), Dehradun with effect from 9th May 2023 as per the orders of the Uttrakhand State Government. Now THDC-IHET has become an integral part of the University bestowed with statutory powers in terms of academics, administration, and allied aspects as prescribed by its act.
THDC-IHET is a flagship institution of VMSBUTU under the patronage of THDC India Limited. The academic programs of the University have been duly designed and updated as per the present and future expectations of the technical graduates and post-graduates. The institute is capable of offering its B. Tech. programs in all disciplines with minor degrees in almost all contemporary thrust areas pertaining to domains of computer science and another core engineering. The introduction of major and minor degree philosophy in all B.Tech. programs have made them multidisciplinary and also opened new vistas for budding engineers due to their specialization in the additional interdisciplinary domain along with the major degree and enhanced their prospects of employment in distinct domains.
The ambiance, academic atmosphere, and opportunity to nurture skills and pursue a passion in THDC-IHET hold the potential to transform its students into successful and competent technical professionals.
