Mechanical Engineering has a challenging Master program with specialization of Machine Design that encompasses advanced study and research leading to the Master Degree in Mechanical Engineering for qualified graduates with backgrounds in engineering. The PG program curriculum involves Mechanical Vibration, Analysis and Synthesis of Mechanisms, Advanced stress analysis, System modeling and analysis, Statistical Techniques and Design of experiments and Optimization as core courses. Two elective courses per semester focus more on Analytical, Numerical and Experimental approaches. The PG programme aims to provide knowledge of theoretical subject learned with practical application using different labs such as Vibration Measurement and Analysis Lab, Finite Element Analysis lab, CAD/CAM/CIM Lab and Measurement and Virtual Instrument Lab.
