Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering :-

The course covers topics in Math and Science that require students to have background knowledge in mechanics, thermodynamics, and scientific computing. The course teaches and allows candidates to learn great mechanical engineering skills, as well as technical drawing and computing skills necessary in the designing of machines and equipment.

Mechanical Engineering is not only a technical subject, but is also an analytical area of study and any good course equips its students with not only with the technical ability necessary to excel in this course but also with the ability to apply abstract concepts in real world usage. The field requires a great degree of innovation and out of the box thinking and is concerned with the adopting of new approaches to already existing problems. Professionals in this field are often required to work with various other persons through the course of their career and thus being adaptable to different work environments and being able to communicate effectively with different persons is also of paramount importance.

Mechanical Engineering although a very technical field of study is one that has great scope for research and thus is an interesting subject to be delved further into. Understanding and researching further into the field is essential for greater innovation to occur in this area. One of the benefits of studying Mechanical Engineering is that it is considered an all purpose engineering degree and leaves the scope open for pursuing a career in various fields of engineering.

Graduates from this course are likely to be recruited into fields of research and academia, in colleges and universities, kinetics, thermodynamics, robotics, oil exploration and refining, power plants, and etcetera. Professionals in this field need to be technically proficient, able communicators, as well as capable of conducting themselves professionally in settings such as seminars or fundraisers. In fact even those that go into research need to get funding for the same so being personable is definitely an important quality.

Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering: Admission Process :-

In most institutes for Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering candidates that fulfil the eligibility and have given their all India entrance test in the case of certain universities, can fill out the physical or online application forms.  In certain colleges the entrance test will not matter but the final admission would be granted on the basis of marks scored at the bachelors or masters level that is it would be merit based.



Masters degree in engineering/technology or science or bachelors degree in engineering.
  • Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering: Syllabus and Course Description

    All engineering doctorate courses have common course work for their first semester which is

     S.NO. First Semester
    1 Research Methodology
    2 Seminar
    3a Mathematics for Engineering Research
    3b Branch Specific topics

    Once the common course work has been completed and tested in an end semester examination, candidates would have to carry on their course work in their specialised field of study, which in this case would be Advances in Mechanical Engineering. The research part of the course is entirely independent and it is up to the candidate to get the funding and approval for the same.
