Concentration Streams

Students may select a stream from thirteen concentration streams. Each concentration is designed to offer a structured set of elective courses around an organized theme without increasing time to degree completion.

CR1- Manufacturing

The Manufacturing concentration stream is for those who are interested in how advanced manufacturing and product realization work in the modern world. This includes how processes, automation, systems and design all interact to create the responsive production systems.

CR2 – Control, Instrumentation and Robotics

Control, Instrumentation and Robotics or “CIR” is one of the popular concentration stream in Mechanical Engineering Department as everyone loves robots. This track enables students to combine studies in mechanical design and control with circuits, electronics and programming.

CR3 – Energy

The Energy, Science and Engineering concentration stream is designed for students who aims to gain strong foundation in mechanical engineering with greater depth in energy conversion and utilization technologies. Graduates of this track will be prepared to understand, analyse, design and build efficient and sustainable energy systems that exploit the rapid pace of progress in the field.

CR4 – Mechanics

Mechanics stream include courses such as Mechanics and Materials II, Dynamics and control and numerical analysis. These courses will help the students to enhance the knowledge of mechanics for applications in different domain areas.

CR5 – Automotive Technology

The aim of this stream is to provide technical knowledge to students on automotive technology and depth within three areas such as power train, vehicle dynamics and safety. The stream is based on lectures, assignments, simulations and experiments which are carried out as real case studies with assistance from industrial tools.

CR6 – Industrial Design

The Industrial Design stream has been structured on modern industry trends and demands. In depth knowledge on design, manufacturing and human system engineering is imparted to the students in the stream.

CR7- Biomechanics and Biomedical Devices

Biomechanics is the study of the structure and function of biological systems using the methods of mechanics. Biomechanics can be applied to whole organisms, organs, cells and cell organelles. Biomechanical experimental measures and computational approaches are fundamental to nearly every possible biomedical engineering application. In this stream, students will study the courses like Biomechanics and Neural Control of Movement, Instrumentation and Measurement for Biological Systems and Quantitative Systems Physiology.

CSR8 – Engineering Management

This concentration area offers a wide base of classes geared towards fusing experiential knowledge of engineering with business management skills. Students will study the courses such as Management in Engineering, Optimization Methods in Management Science and System Dynamics to enhance their engineering management skills.

CSR9 – Entrepreneurship

The Entrepreneurship stream is designed to take the students through various stages of the entrepreneurial and entrepreneurial processes. This area is designed to develop professional leaders with entrepreneurial spirit who can lead to the creation of new ventures within and outside existing enterprises. Main courses offered in this stream are Entrepreneurship in Engineering, The Founder’s Journey Engineering Innovation and Design and Basic Business Law for the Entrepreneur and Manager.

CSR10 – Environmental Mechanics

The objective of this stream is to prepare students for incorporating environmentally sustainable design, strategies and practices into natural and built systems and infrastructure involving buildings, water supply and coastal regions. Student study Transport Processes in the Environment, Environmental Chemistry and System Microbiology courses in this stream.

CSR11 – Nano / Micro Engineering

Micro and Nano Engineering stream encompasses fabrication, characterization, design and modelling of small structures and devices, and their integration into engineered systems. The focus of efforts is to explore new nano and micro manufacturing methods and new material and system properties enabled by nano and micro scale phenomena. Students will study Molecular Mechanics, Micro/Nano processing Technology and Modelling and Simulation of Dynamic Systems courses.

CSR12 – Product Development

Product development is a wide-ranging and dynamic field. Conceiving of products and moving them to market is a complex process that begins with an understanding of the humans who will use the product. Product development is about creating and delivering products that have value to customers and society. This stream consist of courses like Statistical Thinking and Data Analysis, Design and Manufacturing II and
Product Design.

CSR13: Sustainable and Global Development

As a student of the Sustainable and Global Development stream, students will explore the current sustainability challenges from the point of view of different disciplines to achieve a holistic understanding of the problems at hand. Students will go through courses such as Fundamentals of Energy in Buildings, Desalination and Water Purification and Environmentally Benign Design and Manufacturing.
