Mechanical Engineering

Overview

 

Mechanical Engineering as a discipline is mainly concerned with the design, development, manufacture, operation and maintenance of a wide variety of machines and systems. It requires understanding of core concepts in the areas of physics, mathematics, statics, kinematics, dynamics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, machine design, mechanics of materials, materials science, structural analysis, eloctromechanical systems, and more. The Mechanical Engineering PhD program prepares graduates to use these core principles along with tools like computer-aided design, computer aided modelling and simulation, and experimental techniques to solve mechanical engineering problems and/or design new products/processes. The program as well will help the candidate, through the contributing faculty expertise, to be able to deal with a wide range of research oriented problems ranging from systems dynamics and control to thermo-fluid and material engineering as well.
