M.E. (Thermal Engineering) is a two year Post graduate course having an intake of 24 seats. The minimum eligibility for studying this course is having an undergraduate degree in B.E or B.Tech degree in Mechanical, Aeronautical, Automobile or any equivalent engineering degree. Thermal engineering course provides profound knowledge in areas such as IC engines, turbo machines, heat transfer equipments, Refrigeration and air conditioning. This course gives a better platform for the students to take up research as their career in industries or academia.
Studying the advanced subjects on Thermal engineering like
Advanced heat transfer
Advanced engineering fluid mechanics
Advanced Internal combustion engineering
Computational fluid dynamics
Focusing on the design of thermal equipment and applications of thermal engineering
Design of thermal systems
Design and analysis of turbo machines
Advanced Power plant engineering
Cogeneration and Waste heat recovery systems
The students have to do a project for two semesters (Phase I and II) based on innovative idea or recent research in any one area of Thermal engineering.
Thermal engineering is one of the highly challenging fields and there are a lot of career opportunities in this field, both in private and public sectors. R&D engineers or Production engineers in boiler, automotive, pump, alternative energy industries are some of the scope. Professionals in this field can also opt for teaching jobs in universities and colleges. This field has lot of opportunities for those who want to pursue a career as a researcher.
