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.”
