( Department of Mechanical Engineering offers 3 M.Tech. Programmes )

(I) Thermal Engineering Stream (ME1)

The stream of specialization in 'Thermal Engineering' offers courses related to theory and applications of thermal engineering. Core and Elective courses are offered by the Thermal Engineering faculty from the six laboratories comprising of (a) Thermodynamics and Combustion Engineering laboratory (b) Heat Transfer and Thermal Power laboratory (c) Hydroturbomachines laboratory (d) Internal Combustion Engines and Gas Turbines laboratory (e) Refrigeration and Air conditioning laboratory (f) Thermal Turbomachines laboratory. All students have to take 9 stream courses in the first two semesters. The courses are:

Semester I - Advanced Heat and Mass Transfer, I.C. Engines Combustion and Pollution, Refrigeration and Cryogenics, Incompressible Fluid Flow, Principles of Turbomachinery, Applied Thermodynamics.

Semester II - Numerical Methods in Thermal Engineering, Measurements in Thermal Engineering, Advanced Energy Conversion.

They also have opportunity to do 4 elective courses from the department (out of a total of 66 possible electives) and 1 free elective which is left to the student's choice. The students will do a two semester project in the second year of their M.Tech.

Core courses are designed to provide the students the required base for undertaking specialized electives and the project. The student will pursue a project of his/her choice in any area in which the thermal engineering faculty are engaged.

Programme Codes:

  • ME1Y -> M.Tech. in Mechanical Engineering - Thermal Stream with HTTA
  • ME1N -> M.Tech. in Mechanical Engineering - Thermal Stream without HTTA
(II) Design Stream (ME2)

Mechanical Design stream offers courses related to the mechanical aspects of design and their application. All the Students take six core (theory) courses and one laboratory in the first semester - computational methods in engineering, theory of mechanisms, theory of vibrations, principles of product design, design with advanced materials and advanced mechanics of solids.

Additional core subjects such as failure analysis, finite element analysis and a laboratory course on CAE are offered in the second semester. The students are offered a basket of electives such as design synthesis, design of transmission elements, gear design, CAD/CAM for product design, mechatronics, product reliability, design of transmission systems, fracture mechanics, tribo-design, tribo-instrumentation, nonlinear solid mechanics, optimization methods, rotor dynamics, random vibration, acoustics and noise control, vehicular vibration, chaotic vibration, advanced theory of vibration, modal analysis of mechanical systems, design for manufacture and assembly, theory of mixtures, mechanics of human movement.

The concepts learned through course work are useful for the project work done in the third and final semesters. The project work can be taken up in the following broad areas of expertise: Finite Element Analysis; CAE; Vibration; Acoustics and Noise Control; Fluid-structure interactions; Constitutive Material Modeling; Fatigue and Fracture; Machine Elements; Mechanisms; Kinematics; Non-Destructive Evaluation & Condition Monitoring; Structural Health and Condition Monitoring; Tribology; Fretting; Rotor Dynamics; Product Design; Bio-Mechanics, Human Body Kinematics, Prosthetics; Design Optimization and Reliability Engineering as well as in new and Emerging areas of mechanical engineering relating to design.

Programme Codes:

  • ME2Y -> M.Tech. in Mechanical Engineering - Design Stream with HTTA
  • ME2N -> M.Tech. in Mechanical Engineering - Design Stream without HTTA
(III) Manufacturing and Precision Engineering Stream (ME3)

The courses offered in the first semester are computational methods in engineering, microprocessors in automation, robotics and robot applications, metrology and computer aided inspection, computer-aided design in manufacturing and computer numerical control. The core courses offered after the first semester in this stream are advanced materials and processing, sensors for intelligent manufacturing & condition monitoring, mechatronics and oil hydraulics & pneumatic systems.

A good number of electives permit one to choose his/her area of interest within the broad spectrum of courses related to advanced manufacturing engineering, computer integrated manufacturing and precision engineering.

The list of electives include the courses such as production system design and control, handling system design, tooling for automated manufacturing & assembly, and management of finance, marketing & personnel, with a special emphasis on impact of computers in advanced manufacturing. Further, a wide variety of electives for in-depth study in specific areas of CIM such as artificial intelligence in manufacturing, flexible manufacturing systems, machine vision & its applications are included. This also includes courses to give a clear understanding of the organizational aspects and total quality management of CIM environment. A number of electives are offered to cover precision engineering elements and instruments, manufacturing methods in precision engineering, precision drives & controls, applied optics, instrumentation and controls, and other important aspects of precision engineering which has assumed a great significance in the recent past for realizing host of products ranging from IT to Aerospace.

The project work can be taken in the areas such as computer applications in design and manufacturing, materials, treatment and manufacturing processes, process equipments and tools, process control and optimization, inspection, testing and quality assurance, manufacturing automation - sensors, handling devices etc. their selection, integration and control, simulation and management aspects. Project work can also be undertaken in the broad areas of instrumentation, robotics, precision manufacture, metrology, microprocessor system based development. CAD, adaptive and digital control system, active noise control, active suspension, embedded controllers for automotive application, sensor technology, micro actuators, dynamic balancing, magnetic suspension, gyroscopic systems, hydraulic and pneumatic systems, simulation and dynamic analysis, sintered bearings, mechatronic devices, computer aided surgery and Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS).
