DEPARTMENT OF APPLIED MECHANICS

Applied Mechanics is the only department in IIT Madras dedicated to Post Graduate programs in Engineering completely. In view of its unique interdisciplinary academic activities candidates from wide range of Engineering disciplines (see Table 2) are eligible to apply.

The following two streams are offered in M.Tech. Applied Mechanics Discipline:

(I) Fluid Mechanics and Solid Mechanics (AM1)

First Semester is common for all the students of this specialization. Based on the performance in the first semester and their preference, students will be allotted to either of these two groups. Fluid Mechanics covers turbulence, hydrodynamic instability, convection, fluid-structure interaction, bio-fluid mechanics, waves, micro scale flows and environmental flows. Solid Mechanics covers continuum theory, plates and shells, plasticity, fracture mechanics, modeling of materials, dynamics of structures, finite and boundary element methods, experimental stress analysis, digital photo mechanics. The students can choose analytical and experimental approaches for their project works.

Programme Codes:

  • AM1Y -> M.Tech. in Applied Mechanics - Fluid Mechanics and Solid Mechanics with HTTA
  • AM1N -> M.Tech. in Applied Mechanics - Fluid Mechanics and Solid Mechanics without HTTA
  For GATE Qualified candidates, the candidate should have taken 'AE','CE', 'CH', 'ME', 'MT' or 'XE' paper in GATE Examination.

(II) Biomedical Engineering (AM2)

Closing the gap between the engineering and medicine, this specialization covers science and technology to understand the complexity of human physiology and pathology and to design and develop new diagnostic and rehabilitation techniques. A number of courses have been designed towards this objective and the students can undertake projects in medical instrumentations, imaging, signal processing, biomechanics, rehabilitation, haptics etc.

Programme Codes:

  • AM2Y -> M.Tech. in Applied Mechanics - Biomedical Engineering with HTTA
  • AM2N -> M.Tech. in Applied Mechanics - Biomedical Engineering without HTTA
  For GATE Qualified candidates, the candidate should have taken 'AE','CE', 'CH', 'CS', 'EC', 'EE', 'IN', 'ME', 'MT' or 'XE' paper in GATE Examination.
