Faculty Of Mechanical Engineering

Graduate

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.

Thrust Areas

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.
