M.Tech in Machine Design

Mechanical Engineering discipline applies the principles of physics and materials science for design, analysis, prototyping, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. Mechanical Engineers specialize in subject areas like Machine Design, Manufacturing and Energy Conversion (Thermal power) depending on individual’s interest through postgraduate education and research routes.

The School of Mechanical Engineering at REVA UNIVERSITY offers M. Tech., in Machine Design–a postgraduate programme to create motivated, innovative, creative and thinking graduates to fill the roles of Machine Designers who can conceptualize, design, analyse and develop machines to meet the modern day requirements.

The first intellectual and creative activity in development of a new equipment is product or industrial design and the subsequent activity is the Machine Design. Machine design is the process of engineering design. A machine is made up of mechanisms that work together to satisfy the requirements of what the machine needs to accomplish. Machine design takes into account kinematics and kinetics, which deal with motion and the forces on an object in motion. Machine design is applied through a specific process including determining what the machine needs to do, benchmarking and defining goals and requirements, brainstorming, evaluating and selecting from the different options, creating an in-depth design, creating and testing a prototype, and finally manufacturing the machine.

In summary, machine design is about recognizing the need, arriving at specifications, synthesis, analysis, prototyping and evaluation and producing drawings for manufacturing.

Mechanical engineers work in the domains of automobile engineering, aerospace engineering, machine tools, Internal combustion engines, cement industry, steel industries, power sector, hydraulics, manufacturing plants, drilling and mining industry, petroleum, general engineering, biotechnology and many more. Nowadays they are also increasingly needed in the environmental and bio-medical fields. There are exciting times ahead for mechanical engineers as transport technologies like hyper loop, electric vehicles, flying cars, drone technologies, intelligent system like robots and additive manufacturing including 3D printing are gaining importance. These mechanical engineering domains need machine designers to create machines that not only meet the functional, aesthetic, ergonomic requirements but must also be economical to operate and maintain, robust, sustainable and intelligent.

In this context, The School of Mechanical Engineering at REVA UNIVERSITY adds to the growing human resources needs of industry as machine designers through its M. Tech. programme in Machine Design.
