The major objective of this M. Tech program is to prepare graduate students to face challenges posed by research and industries involved in manufacturing and materials. In addition, this program focuses on improving research skills of the students, and develops a passion for doctoral programs. This program offers core courses like Advanced Engineering Materials, Advanced Manufacturing Processes, Mechanics of Machining, Computer Integrated Manufacturing, Mechanical Behaviour of Materials and Computer Aided Metrology. Further, electives prescribed in the curriculum provide specialized knowledge in the area of the individual interest. For the first two semesters, students are required to do a substantial amount of coursework. In subsequent third and fourth semesters students will be working on the projects.
Facilities at Manufacturing and Materials Engineering Laboratory:
Manufacturing research laboratory has an advanced materials processing facility consisting of state-of-art metal additive manufacturing (AM) system, the method that relies on a digital data file being transmitted to a machine then builds the component. The technology helps us to make complex parts from various engineering materials with high standards of quality that are not possible using conventional manufacturing methods. Few other facilities available in this laboratory are Wire electric discharge machine, coordinate measuring machine, Stir casting setup, Compression molding machine, Polymer 3D printer, Laser marker machine, Modular Production System and Virtural Reality system. Materials testing laboratory is equipped with mechanical and materials characterization facilities to measure hardness, tensile strength, fatigue strength and bending strength of any engineering materials. Along with that, a twin disc rolling contact fatigue (RCF) tester and axial fatigue testing machine with the capacity of 100 kN servo-hydraulic frame are also available.
