Energy engineering with m.tech. In energy systems engineering
72. ENERGY ENGINEERING WITH M.TECH. IN ENERGY SYSTEMS ENGINEERING
(Code : B5226)
The Department of Energy Science and Engineering at lIT Bombay has designed this Dual degree programme to provide specialist engineers to meet the challenges of the energy sector with cross cutting analytical skills. The development of energy systems is constrained by the depletion of fossil fuel, local environmental impacts (for example adverse health impacts) and the problem of global warming and associated climate change. Energy security concerns also dictate the search for alternative transport fuels to reduce the dependence on imported oil. There is significant need for engineering, design, research and development inputs in building efficient conventional energy systems, cost effective renewables, new energy sources and conversion devices.
The course has been designed for the energy sector with courses related to mechanical engineering (thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid mechanics), electrical engineering (power electronics, electrical machines, power systems) and chemical engineering (combustion, transport processes). In addition to this are the core energy courses (energy management, renewable energy, nuclear energy, modeling, energy economics) providing the required background for analysing and designing energy systems. The course has an energy innovation laboratory and an energy design project apart from the Dual degree project. A variety of energy related electives are available for the student to choose based on their interests.
The energy sector provides tremendous opportunities for analysis, design of energy efficient equipment and systems, innovative financing and project management, technology development and fundamental research. Engineers with interdisciplinary skills and an understanding of energy systems will be in demand in energy supply companies, energy consulting and financing companies, energy equipment manufacturers, energy intensive manufacturing and process industries. The background provided in this course will equip students with the tools and techniques required to analyse and improve conventional energy systems and design the sustainable energy systems of the future. There is significant scope for entrepreneurship and new start-up companies in this area. Recent advances in nano-science and nanotechnology have already resulted in potential applications for new materials in photovoltaics, hydrogen energy storage, improved batteries, super capacitors, fuel cells and provide several opportunities for technology and system development.
Engineering design with m.tech. In automotive engineering
73. ENGINEERING DESIGN WITH M.TECH. IN AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERING
(Code : M5227)
Engineering Design is an exciting dual degree programme recently introduced at IIT Madras. The programme consists of B.Tech. and M.Tech. degrees in Engineering Design with a post graduate specialization in Automotive Engineering. Specializations in Robotics and Biomedical Design may be offered subsequently and the students may have the option for switch over to these fields.
The objective of the programme is to produce engineering graduates well versed in the process of design. This involves designing products to meet customer requirements, for the required quality standards, taking into account manufacturability, serviceability, reliability, human factors, efficiency of operation and economics.
The programme represents a shift in emphasis from analysis to skill sets appropriate for design, development and prototyping and will encompass best design practices followed world-over. Emphasis on creativity, efficient use of materials, sensitivity to environment and managerial skill development are some of the aspects of the program.
The curriculum focuses on the aspects of learning to learn and teaching of concepts through case studies especially in unstructured design situations.
The mission of the programme is to make IIT Madras a Global centre of Excellence in Engineering Design. We are looking at students with exceptional abilities to provide leadership to the Indian industry in the area of design and manufacture of new products in the increasingly globalised economy.
Engineering design with m.tech. In biomedical design
74. ENGINEERING DESIGN WITH M.TECH. IN BIOMEDICAL DESIGN
(Code : M5228)
The course will be a dual degree program with a B.Tech in Engineering Design and a M.Tech. in Biomedical Design. A medical equipment is any instrument, apparatus, or material that is used in diagnosing, treating, and/or preventing diseases in humans. Medical devices constitute one of the fastest growing industries. German medical devices industry is one of the largest with an estimated 100,000 employees working in more than 500 companies. Lead by giants in the field like Siemens, there are twenty or more companies with a turnover of more than 35 million Euros. An analysis of the costing of medical devices reveals that the highest component is the intellectual content and development costs of the invention and the actual product cost is very much less by comparison.
The major objective of this course is to develop biomedical designers who have the background to design, manufacture, test and market such products.
The biomedical instrumentation as the course is called in many Indian universities, is usually tuned towards maintenance of medical instrumentation and is heavily biased towards electrical engineering. Though such courses are no doubt important, there is a need to develop biomedical designers, who have an interdisciplinary background in mechanical design, controls, mechatronics and manufacturing science.
Apart from this they should be well versed in human anatomy and physiology, mechanics as applied to physiology and biology (there is a recent book titled “Cardiovascular Solid Mechanics”), biosensors, protocol and procedures for animal models, signal processing and so on. In our opinion, no such course which systematically builds a designer exists.

The rapid shrinking sizes of artificially fabricated structures and devices into the nanometer range is leading to a whole new world of nanostructured devices based on quantum phenomena making use of various kind of electronic, optical, magnetic superconducting and molecular materials. Many future applications in telecommunications, computing, information systems, biomaterials, and medicine will be based on research and development in nanoscale technologies. In this perspective, Nanophysics and technology in a wider sense will be the focus of the proposed dual degree programme offered at the Department of Physics. The program targets students with deep interest in physics and the aptitude to apply it to technological issues, without regard to formal boundaries of science and technology. The vibrant interdisciplinary atmosphere of the IITs provides a uniquely stimulating atmosphere for such an initiative.
The programme aims to promote advanced learning and applications with due emphasis on fundamentals.The graduating students should aim at careers in research and development in Universities, Research Organizations and Industrial environments. Nanoscale Physics and Advanced Materials Physics are expected to be the future building blocks for Nanotechnology and hence these uniquely trained students are expected to find unlimited challenges and opportunities to develop a rewarding R & D career.
