Overview

Manufacturing is one of the key wealth producing sectors of an economy and provides important material support for infrastructure and industries. Globally manufacturing sector provides employment to 14 % of the population and contributes 16 % to GDP. In India, it is growing at a rate of 2 – 2.5% and its share of GDP is around 15 – 16 %, employing nearly 45 million people. 

Manufacturing technology is an interacting combination of people, materials, tools, machines, automation and procedures designed to work together for producing good quality products. Engineering management is concerned with integration of technological problem-solving ability of engineering and the organizational, administrative, and planning abilities of management. Industries are in need of personnel having knowledge in both streams. 

This program imparts knowledge on selection of appropriate materials, design and optimization of manufacturing operations, developing automation strategies by applying advanced concepts of manufacturing technologies and engineering management.

Objective

This program offers training in areas of manufacturing: technologies, management of materials, and simulation tools. Students are given opportunities to delve deeper into specific streams to become professionals in manufacturing

Highlights

  • The program integrates the salient features of two disciplines, namely, Manufacturing Technologies and various principles and practices of Engineering Management and aims to solve operational problems in manufacturing and service industries. It has opportunities to choose electives from three streams, namely, Manufacturing Technologies, Engineering Management, and Materials Engineering

  • Three-stream elective specialisation

    This program has four electives grouped so that students can choose a set of electives for a specialisation in Manufacturing Technologies, Engineering management and Material Engineering

  • Online Elective

    Students can choose elective courses online through MOOCs, SWAYAM, NPTEL and other equivalent platforms, adhering to guidelines prescribed by the University

  • Group Project

    A group of up to 5 students can come together to work on an interdisciplinary project in consultation with faculty. Students are required to develop a report for assessment and demonstrate the working of the product, and the project needs to be approved by a committee before it is executed. The IPR rights of all such work lies with the University only

  • Innovation Centre

    Students, together with faculty, have the facility to convert innovative ideas into technology demonstrations. Ideas are assessed based on relevance to society. These projects are then entered in national and international competitions and a select few are registered for patents

  • Uses application-based learning.
  • Offers research opportunities.
  • Offers internship, training, and placement support with universities and industries worldwide. 
  • Provides state of the art facilities in: synthesis and dynamics of mechanism, drives and controls, vibration in machinery, and fracture mechanics.
  • Includes expert guest lectures from various institutions and industries.
  • Workshop, industry visits, group discussions and debates
  • Encourages small batches for in-depth learning.
  • Includes Group Project and Dissertation as output

  • We offer accommodation in student hostels on our campus, and even offer third-party off-campus hotels where necessary to ensure students can focus on what matters the most. 
  • Our on-campus facilities include WiFi any time of the day, 24/7.
  • From a host of eateries and laundry facilities, we ensure that students have access to all facilities.
  • We encourage students to participate in co-curricular activities on campus which include sports and cultural events, both at a university level and a faculty level.
  • We help students focus on independent and sponsored research with projects and a dissertation
