B.Tech. Mechanical Engineering - Thermofluid Systems

Details

The primary objective of the program is to empower graduates with the competencies and knowledge of recent and advanced mechanical engineering concepts. Students will have access to practical experience in technologically advanced areas, such as Advanced Manufacturing Processes, Mechatronics and Machine Controls, Microcontrollers, Manufacturing Systems and Simulation, Control of CNC Machines Tools, Engineering Materials and Applications, Computer-Integrated Manufacturing, Industrial Robotics, etc., through the theoretical foundation, laboratory demonstrations, and hands-on participation in live, industry-focused R&D projects.  Thermo-fluids course is the integrated study of heat transfer, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, and combustion. They are in demand and used in a variety of industries, including the creation of efficient engines and HVAC systems.

Thermo-fluids course includes learning numerical and computational methods, and the physical laboratories equip students with the necessary knowledge to tackle problems in various industries. Apart from this, students get exposure to research.

UPES’ curriculum framework is holistic in its overall structure and yet focuses on the individual need of the student to discover, experience, explore and challenge. Along with the core subject, students have the option to choose from subject-focused specialisations. They are also allowed to choose minor/exploratory subject from other schools at UPES that are: School of Engineering, School of Computer Science, School of Law, School of Business, School of Health Sciences, School of Design, School of Modern Media, and School of Liberal Studies.

Further, based on the multifaceted needs of the global workplace and evolving lifestyles, the curriculum offers Signature and Life-Skills courses through School for Life. To round off this learning experience, students are required to do mandatory internships in the social sector, government/public sector, and industry. The combinations available for students to pick and choose from are endless, ensuring both depth and width of knowledge.
