Program Overview

Prepare for a career in M. Tech.

The engineering discipline of mechanical engineering developed from the application of principles of physics and materials sciences. As the energy and process sector in India is in a boom, the need of the hour is engineers with strong background in thermal and fluid sciences capable of carrying out conceptual design. The program is aimed at providing sufficient theoretical knowledge in the thermal and fluid sciences combined with simulation and experimental skills applied to aerospace, power plant and gas turbines research. The program aims to equip students to perform design related to linear and non linear steady state/ transient heat transfer, steady and unsteady fluid flow, flow through porous media, open channel flow, multiphase flows, fluid structure interactions viz estimation of thermal and pressure loads and coupled field analysis.

The program provides required numerical simulation techniques for design and analysis of equipments like gas turbines and accessories, steam turbines and reactor pipes, heat exchangers, compressors, turbines, pumps, propellers, rotor stator interactions, flow separators, inlet manifolds, volutes, turbo chargers etc. The course also introduces the student to experimental techniques like flow visualization, combustion diagnostics, particle characterization and other recent imaging techniques adopted in the field of thermal research.

M. Tech., Thermal and Fluids Engineering (2017 – 2019)

“Being a part of AMRITIAN is best part of my life. Dual degree program in the US made me a great exposure to the knowledge, culture, diversity, educational training and increased my potential. There are lots of opportunities to explore and exposure through Amrita.”

M. Thamilmani
M. Tech., Thermal and Fluids Engineering (2016 – 2018)

“I would like to describe the experience at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham is unique and enriching with a diverse group of people all across India and abroad, speaking different languages working together. I am glad to have learnt under esteemed professors at the Department of Thermal and Fluids Engineering whose lectures and the curriculum motivates all of us towards a research-based learning. The opportunities both in Industrial and Academic research areas available to the students helped us build our bright career path and lead us to a better future.”

Tamal Jana
M.Tech, Thermal and Fluids Engineering (2016 – 2018)

“I am Tamal Jana , a student of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham trying to express my feelings about Amrita. There are so many things to explain but I have written very little. Here it is – “Amrita means a lot to me because it has made a significant change in my life through the teachers and also by instilling confidence in me. The Professors help us in understanding the fundamentals of Thermal and Fluid Sciences and also guide us in work with Industrial and Academic research tools. Besides, the Department gives us enough exposure for the students to get internships at top industries like Renault Nissan, Cummins, Ingersoll Rand, etc. and also Academic Project interns at ISRO, NAL, IIT-Bombay. The last thing which I want to tell is that, Whatever I am now is because I got the opportunity to study in Amrita.”
