As we head into the new millennium, the ability to gather and apply new scientific knowledge from diverse areas will constitute skills critical for the students. With this foresight, and by virtue of its interdisciplinary composition, the Department of Applied Mechanics, IIT Madras, has introduced a unique interdisciplinary Dual Degree programme with various Departments. At the end of successful completion of 5 years, the student will be offered a B.Tech degree in Naval Architecture and an M.Tech. degree in Applied Mechanics. As of now, the Naval Architecture Engineering students are expected to specialize in Applied Mechanics in the area of Solid Mechanics (or) Fluid Mechanics. Based on the students’ choice, performance records as well as availability of seats for each of the specializations, the students can choose the M.Tech. specialization at the end of the 7th semester.
Basic knowledge in Naval Architecture with a specialized knowledge in the area of Solid Mechanics (or) Fluid Mechanics provides a unique combination for the students to take challenging tasks in interdisciplinary areas of mechanics. The Department of Applied Mechanics has been offering M.Tech. degree for the last 40 years. Students from various Engineering colleges with background in Aerospace Engineering, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Naval Architecture and Electrical Engineering are admitted to the programme. Due to the interdisciplinary character of the Applied Mechanics Department, the student who graduates with the M.Tech. degree in Applied Mechanics are much sought after in core jobs by organizations like GE, GM, TATA and also in software companies such as TCS, Infosys, Cognizant etc. A similar trend is also expected for the graduates from the Dual Degree programme of Applied Mechanics. Applied Mechanics department also provides an excellent environment that nurtures the students who wish to pursue a research career.
Ocean engineering and naval architecture
97. OCEAN ENGINEERING AND NAVAL ARCHITECTURE
(Code : G5251)
Ocean Engineering in its broadest sense is concerned with all engineering systems in the ocean. This includes systems for exploration and exploitation of the vast oceanic resources such as offshore oil and gas, seabed minerals, biological resources like marine and sea food, etc. Ocean Engineering also involves systems that utilize the ocean for transportation and recreational purpose like ships and marine vehicles of different variety, submarine and underwater vehicles, pleasure crafts, floating resorts, etc. Yet another important component of ocean engineering is related to seacoasts and its protection, and marine hazards and its mitigation through engineering solutions. In short, any system that uses the ocean, operates in the ocean or related to the ocean in some sense falls under the purview of an Ocean Engineer. Naval Architecture, an important branch of Ocean Engineering, deals primarily with ocean transportation systems such as ships. Due to its historic importance, Naval Architecture stands out as a separate entity, and a Naval Architect is primarily engaged in the process of ship design in the widest sense of the word ‘design’. Ocean Engineering and Naval Architecture encompasses subjects such as marine hydrodynamics, water wave mechanics, design of marine structures, structural mechanics related to marine structures, marine construction and welding, coastal engineering, etc.
In the five years of this dual degree M.Tech. course, the students can specialize in any of the broad area of Ocean Engineering and Naval Architecture such as marine and ocean hydrodynamics, marine structures, design and construction of marine vehicles etc. through project and specialized courses. The prolonged period of project work provides an opportunity to the student to gain expertise in one of these broad areas. Employment opportunities of Ocean Engineers and Naval Architects exist in various offshore industry, shipbuilding and ship repairing yards, marine classification societies and other government regulatory bodies dealing with marine systems, Navy and Coast Guard, coastal engineering companies, Naval Defense R&D, environmental protection agencies for coastal protection, etc. Being multidisciplinary in nature, students from this program generally receive a broad engineering background, and this helps finding employment in other allied engineering fields as well including management and IT industry.
Petroleum engineering with m.tech. In petroleum engineering
98. PETROLEUM ENGINEERING WITH M.TECH. IN PETROLEUM ENGINEERING
(Code : S5252)
With the fast depletion of the natural resources and the simultaneous increase in demand of energy specially Petroleum and its products, the need for a better resource management has been felt and this is the present day requirement expected by the employers from petroleum engineers who can manage optimally and economically the petroleum asset available at their disposal.
By undergoing this programme students will be in an advantageous position after they join any Petroleum Industry. Moreover job opportunities will be manifold in diversified as well as in specialized fields.
Quality engineering design and manufacturing
99. QUALITY ENGINEERING DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING
(Code : G5253)
In the background of globalization, with the consumer and industrial products needing superior performance and economic value, there has been renewed realization in Indian Industry for highly qualified analytical, developmental and design engineering professionals. With an aim to fulfil this need, a new interdisciplinary dual degree programme is introduced at IIT Kharagpur with B.Tech. (Hons) in Engineering Product Design and Manufacturing and M.Tech in Design and Quality Engineering. The interdisciplinary programme is offered in two verticals – Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Electronics by the departments of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Industrial Engineering and Management (Coordinating Department). A student opting for this dual degree programme will be allocated one of the verticals based on his/her choice and his/ her cumulative grade-point average at the end of first year.
The programme will inculcate in students an enhanced awareness of Engineering Design, Manufacturing and Quality issues related either to Mechanical Engineering Products such Automotive Systems or to Electronic Products such as Real-time Embedded Systems. The academic content of the program is accordingly designed to expose the students to most major engineering aspects related to such products including Product Modelling and Development, Design for Quality, Manufacturability and Assembly, and engineering courses on mechanical/industrial electronics discipline. The programme includes six-month dedicated Internship in leading organizations in product design and development.
The programme is aimed at imparting its students the required skill sets, knowledge, competence and sufficient hands-on experience to successfully perform in careers that involve determining customer requirements, conceiving the solution, designing the product, maturing it to a prototype, optimizing its performance and designing the process to manufacture it while ensuring superior quality and cost competitiveness of the final product.
