The prime objective of the educational program at the GIK- Institute is to prepare students for professional practice in an area of rapidly advancing technology. It strives to develop independence, creative talent, and leadership as well as the capability for continuing professional growth. Mechanical engineering graduates need in-depth knowledge of the latest developments in their fields, and should be conversant with the current research and development activities in the advanced countries. They should also receive a good measure of exposure to the problems encountered by our developing industrial infrastructure and techniques and strategies to cope with them.
Several broad areas of professional concentration for mechanical engineering graduates are: energy conversion and conservation, environmental engineering, manufacturing and materials processing, mechanics of materials, mechanical engineering design, transportation systems, and systems and control.
Graduate program can be pursued in the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (FME) specializing in one of the following areas of engineering:
The FME offers courses leading to both Master (MS), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees in Mechanical Engineering. The graduate course curriculum in Faculty of Mechanical Engineering gives an excellent opportunity to the students to improve their employment prospects and keep abreast of today’s cutting edge technology.
The courses offered by the FME are categorized as core courses, faculty electives and other-faculty electives. For the award of MS degree in Mechanical Engineering, student must complete 30 credits hours, (8 courses of 3 credits each) and a thesis of 6 credits. The courses distribution is as follows:
Minimum 3 courses (9 CHs)
3 courses (9 CHs)
|Maximum 2 courses (6 CHs)||6 CHs|
The PhD student will have to take eight courses generally each of three credit hours and to complete his/her dissertation. The courses to be taken by the student will be decided by his/her advisor and approved by the Dean of Graduate School. Four out of the eight courses must be from the list of FME courses, and the remainder may be from other Faculties. For the award of Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering, students have to complete 42 credit hours, the distribution is as follows:
Minimum 4 Courses (12CHs)
|upto 4 courses (12 CHs)||18 CHs|
Research Methodology (non-credit) is also mandatory for all students of Masters & PhD degree.
