Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

A warm welcome to the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. In this brochure, you will find a comprehensive picture of the Department as it stands today having completed 15 years since its inception. The department was envisioned as a Mechanical and Aerospace Department to leverage the strengths of both the disciplines and to support the many Aerospace industries in the Telangana region. Under able and visionary leadership and with the support of both young and experienced faculty members and staff forming its core competency, the department has grown significantly. With a focus on interdisciplinary research and teaching, we are actively involved in unique undergraduate and graduate programs such as B.Tech programs in Computational Mechanics, and Engineering Sciences as well as M.Tech programs in Additive Manufacturing, Smart Mobility, Ophthalmic Engineering, Polymers and Biosystems, Integrated Sensors System, Integrated Circuits and Microsystem Packaging. The department faculty are also actively involved in doing fundamental and industry-oriented projects funded by many multinational companies, local Industries, government, and defense laboratories. We hope you find the booklet informative and welcome you to be a participant in our vision to become a department of repute, and a best place for prospective students and faculties, and industry collaborators.

IIT Hyderabad

IIT Hyderabad is one among the 2nd generation of IITs started by the Govt. of India. Today IITH offers 9 B.Tech programs, 16 M.Tech programs, 3 M.Sc programs, 5 M.Phil programs, 1 M.Des program and Ph.D. programs in all branches of engineering, science, liberal arts and design. The very foundation of IIT Hyderabad is based on research and innovation. The vibrant research culture is evident from the number of patents and publications that IITH has. At IITH students are given with a plethora of choices, which they diligently choose with the help of a faculty advisor. Courses that last for a semester are almost a foregone story at IITH. From 14-15 academic year onwards all B.Tech programs started offering courses that are of smaller credits; called the fractal academics; very carefully designed to keep the enthusiasm of the students and to keep them in pace with the state of the art from 1st semester till 8th semester. IITH in the past couple of years has been highly successful in building tie-ups with leading academic institutions around the globe. IITH enjoys a very special relationship with Japanese Universities and Industries that goes beyond academic and research collaborations. In fact, some of the iconic buildings in IITH campus will carry the signature of Japanese architecture. IITH is creating a unique holistic educational ecosystem that offers interactive learning, a highly, flexible academic structure, cutting-edge research, strong industry collaboration, and entrepreneurship. It is providing an environment wherein students and faculty are not afraid to translate their dreams into realities.
