Academics

M. Tech. in Production and Industrial Engineering is a program offered at School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Amritapuri campus.

Production and industrial engineering is two year post graduate course. Production and Industrial Engineering is an interdisciplinary discipline which includes design, advanced manufacturing, engineering sciences, management science and optimization of complex processes, systems, or organization, operations and services. Production and industrial engineers use principles of engineering, mass production and technology to help companies find ways to offer services or create a product efficiently.

Programme Outcomes

  • Enabling engineers to improve efficiency and effectiveness of industrial components.
  • Add value to the organization through appropriate industrial engineering methods and tools. Develop an integrated system which includes people, materials, information, equipment and environment.
  • Apply various types of engineering work measurement techniques for analyzing the task. Apply systematic layout planning technique and work design principle based on ergonomics for effective material handling.
  • Industrial engineers work is to get the assigned job done in most efficient way i.e. to balance many factors like time, manpower required, inventory control required to complete the job.
  • Industrial engineers are to reduce the waste & improve performance. They have to achieve the end product with no errors & study the product requirement more carefully to give best result.
