M.Tech in Machine Design (M.Tech )

Course Duration

4 Semesters
(2 Years)

Eligibility Criteria

BE / B.Tech. in Mechanical/Aeronautical / Automobile / Industrial Production Engineering with a minimum of 50% (45% in case of candidate belonging to SC/ST category) marks in aggregate, of any recognized University / Institution or AMIE or any other qualification recognized as equivalent there to.


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

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.

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

Future Of Pursuing Machine Design

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 and Mechanical engineers are most sought after in these fields. 

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. 

Machine designers need to create machines that not only meet the functional, aesthetic, ergonomic requirements but are also economical, robust, sustainable and intelligent.

There is an increasing need for Mechanical engineers in the fields of environment and bio-medical.

Programme Outcomes (POs)

PO 1Demonstrate in-depth knowledge

of Machine Design, including wider and global perspective, with an ability to discriminate, evaluate, analyse and synthesise existing and new knowledge on design concepts, and integration of the same for enhancement of knowledge.

PO 2Analyse complex design problem

s critically, apply independent judgment for synthesizing information to make intellectual and/or creative advances for conducting research in a wider theoretical, practical and policy context.

PO 3Think laterally and originally

conceptualize and solve mechanical design problems, evaluate a wide range of potential solutions for those problems and arrive at feasible, optimal solutions after considering public health and safety, cultural, societal and environmental factors in the core areas of expertise.

PO 4Extract information pertinent to unfamiliar problems

through literature survey and experiments, apply appropriate research methodologies, techniques and tools, design, conduct experiments, analyze and interpret data, demonstrate higher order skill and view things in a broader perspective, contribute individually/in group(s) to the development of scientific/technological knowledge in the domains of mechanical design engineering.

PO 5Create, select, learn and apply

appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modeling, to complex mechanical design engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.

PO 6

Possess knowledge and understanding of group dynamics, recognize opportunities and contribute positively to collaborative-multidisciplinary scientific research, demonstrate a capacity for self-management and teamwork, decision-making based on open-mindedness, objectivity and rational analysis in order to achieve common goals and further the learning of themselves as well as others.

PO 7

Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering and management principles and apply the same to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, manage projects efficiently in mechanical design and multidisciplinary environments after consideration of economical and financial factors.

PO 8Communicate with the engineering community,

and with society at large, regarding complex mechanical design engineering activities confidently and effectively, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation by adhering to appropriate standards, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
