M. Tech. in Advanced Machinery Design

FETCE 101
Add machin design mtech

Overview

Machineries and equipment are the heart of various sectors including aerospace, automotive, infrastructure, agriculture, power engineering and machine tools. Newer manufacturing technologies and processes create demand for special purpose machines and qualified engineers. Indian manufacturing sector is growing at a rate of 4.4 – 4.6% and it is estimated that there is an annual demand for 500 – 600 specialized design engineers. 

Design engineers need to be well versed in mechanisms, kinematics and dynamics of machines, materials, manufacturing processes, tribology, machine structures, control systems, electrical and electronics to conceptualize, design and optimization of machinery. Designers should be capable of using modern design tools to model, simulate, analyze, optimize and validate the designs.

The program covers courses on design, analysis and control of machinery and offers electives in two streams, namely, Design optimization and Machinery Design.

Objective

Our program trains students in the fundamentals of building and testing machinery. Our program –

  • Ensures students learn modelling, simulation, analysis, synthesis, and optimisation of machinery at the element and system level.
  • Trains students in summarising concepts in machinery, farming equipment, construction machinery, general engineering machines, and material handling equipment etc.
  • Includes training in designing and developing machinery systems to meet varied functional and operational requirements.
  • Helps explain underlying engineering principles for design and control of machinery.
  • Helps students identify materials and processing knowledge for design of machine elements. 
  • Trains students to use CAE tools to model, simulate and analyse the behavior of machinery systems for design optimisation and performance improvement.
  • Provides opportunities for a career in Advanced Machinery Design.
  • Encourages teamwork, lifelong learning and continuous improvement

Highlights

  • Elective Specialisation

    Electives are grouped so that students can specialise in a chosen field. Students can also opt for elective courses across multiple streams given affordability and approval from a course leader, HoDs and Deans, and this requires that guidelines are followed

  • Two-Stream Electives

    The program covers courses on design, analysis and control of machinery and offers electives in two streams, namely, Design optimization and Machinery Design

  • Online Elective

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

  • International Competitions

    Students can also earn 3 or 4 credits by participating in international competitions like technical presentations, conferences and publications in journals and winning awards. Students who achieve this can be exempted from one of the elective courses in the program

  • 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

  • Industry Internship or Project

    A student can opt for an internship in an industry, a business or research organisation. Alternately, students can undertake a mini-project which requires self-directed study that can be pursued with an affiliated faculty member. The internship needs to be approved by the HoD and Dean and students have to submit a report and make a presentation to a panel constituted by the HoD for assessment

  • Dissertation and Publication

    This course includes a dissertation and publication. Each student has to choose a relevant topic for a dissertation and this needs to be approved by a committee constituted by the HoD. The dissertation should then be converted into a technical paper published in reputed conferences or journals

  • 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
