Academics

This program is designed to enable an engineering graduate to develop specific capabilities in design, synthesis and analysis of a wide variety of mechanical engineering systems. The program focuses on developing design methodologies which involve high degree of research orientation supplemented with practical insights. Besides core courses (which are mandatory), a variety of electives are also offered to suit the taste of each individual student so that he/she can specialise in a particular area of Engineering Design. The students are periodically assessed by the teachers who are experts in chosen areas of Engineering Design, to ensure quality of education. On the whole, the Masters Program is committed to produce design engineers with excellent creative capabilities and calibre to solve real life problems curtailing to industry requirements, in tune with the objectives envisioned by the Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.

Duration : Two years


Highlights of the Specialisation

  • The program focuses on developing design methodologies and problem solving techniques which involve high degree of research orientation supplemented with practical insights. It facilitates design engineers to have creative capabilities and caliber to solve real life problems.
  • Besides core courses (which are mandatory), a variety of electives are also offered to suit the aptitude of each individual student so that he/she can specialize in a particular area of Engineering Design. The curriculum and course syllabus are revised every two years with the help of senior academicians from India and abroad and Industry professionals.
  • The program provides an opportunity for the students to pursue internships in companies and organizations such as IGCAR, ISRO, Volvo, BOSCH, Renault, Tata Cummins, Ashok Leyland etc. Internships helps the students to strengthen the skills and research experience by involving in the real time projects. Based on merit, students also get a chance to carry out their final year project work at European Universities under Indo- European initiative.
  • Promotes development of intellectual property by publishing research articles in International journals and conferences.
