Department of Mechanical Engineering

MS Mechanical Engineering (Fluid & Thermal Systems)

Fluid and Thermal System (FTS) program aims to impart the understanding of intensely practical, design-oriented engineering problems pertaining to the technical challenges of the country facing nowadays. We aim to grow and evoke the rational skills that will help in solving the multi-disciplinary engineering problems. This program focuses on various advanced courses such as thermal system design, combustion, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, and computational fluid dynamics to prepare the graduate to create innovative new products and solutions to real world problems.

This field of specialization is diverse which involves experimental, analytical and numerical investigations in the following areas:

  • Computational Fluid Dynamics
  • HVAC and Refrigeration
  • Thermal Design of Heat Exchanger
  • Thermal Systems Design
  • Fluid Structure Interactions
  • Combustion
  • Turbomachinery

This program enables the graduates apply their knowledge and skills to develop the effective, efficient and environmental friendly systems.
