In the era of automation and mechanization, newer design & design innovation is promising and relevant considering fast escalating requirement of manufacturing industries. In light of this, Post Graduate Program in Machine Design is designed to equip students for professional careers in Design Industries and Research Organizations. Advanced subjects strengthen the students’ knowledge for the efficient designs with optimum material utilization. The program curriculum involves Analysis of static and dynamic forces to design machine elements to meet strength, safety, reliability and cost specifications. The program focuses on Design of Mechanisms and Components using Analytical, Numerical and Experimental approaches. It aims to provide knowledge of behavior of materials and systems in both elastic and plastic ranges, failure modes and mechanisms in both static and dynamic conditions. A well defined career in Design Engineering can be established by the student by the end of the course.
PG Program in Machine Design offered by the department:
Enable the students to undergo training in well established Nano-tribology Lab, Experimental Stress Analysis Lab and Vibration Analysis Lab.
Enable each student to carry out externally funded research projects
Provide platform for students to link and network with reputed Design industries.
Well experienced faculty including Visiting Professors and Adjunct Professors play a key role in our PG programme by providing critical insights to major technical areas of Machine Design inculcating Design Thinking among the students.
