Programme - M. Tech in Mechanical Engineering Design


About Programme:

M. Tech in Mechanical Engineering Design at DYPU, is designed keeping in line with the recent revolutions taking place in industry and to address future avenues the engineers will have to deal with. Mechanical Engineers are often expected to have the ability to analyse and design systems based on the ability to predict the motion and/or deformation of rigid bodies and deformable distributed mass systems. Industry in present era is completely moving to artificial intelligence wherein the product specifications are computer generated as well as manufacturing is also algorithm guided which forms the significance of CAD/CAM domain in industries. Recent revolution in the industry has made it to change all its processes as per industry 4.0 which mainly focusses on automation & integration of all industrial processes. In view of this future engineers must be well versed with automation strategies & implementation.

Evergreen & close to heart aspect of engineering has been automobile sector which has evolved itself on various facets in past ten decades. The ecological awareness among engineers has mandated to shift to newer energy sources & hybrid approaches. The community also demands comfortable climate & efficient processes. The students are exposed to the problems faced by today’s societies, and are trained to address those problems through innovative thinking to develop appropriate technological solutions
