Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering

The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) program in Mechanical Engineering Department started in 2017 to promote research and development in the areas like sustainable energy, instrumentation, biomaterials and production engineering. This program is recommended for students who are interested in careers in academia (e.g. as a faculty member of a university), research or industry. The program offers scholars an opportunity to work at the highest level of research, under the supervision of experienced faculty members. The program typically includes both – a coursework, which is expected to be completed in the first year and thereafter followed by the research component. It is expected that the scholar’s research should culminate into a quality publication or patent. The goal of the Ph.D. program is to create a culture of high impact research that produces articulate researchers who are able to deliver solutions to problems.
