Master of Technology (M.Tech) in Thermal and Fluid Engineering is a two-year full-time postgraduate program recognized by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and offered by the Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Coimbatore.
The engineering discipline of mechanical engineering developed from the application of principles of physics and materials sciences. As the energy and process sector in India is in a boom, the need of the hour is engineers with strong background in thermal and fluid sciences capable of carrying out conceptual design. The program is aimed at providing sufficient theoretical knowledge in the thermal and fluid sciences combined with simulation and experimental skills applied to aerospace, power plant and gas turbines research. The program aims to equip students to perform design related to linear and non linear steady state/ transient heat transfer, steady and unsteady fluid flow, flow through porous media, open channel flow, multiphase flows, fluid structure interactions viz estimation of thermal and pressure loads and coupled field analysis.
The program provides required numerical simulation techniques for design and analysis of equipments like gas turbines and accessories, steam turbines and reactor pipes, heat exchangers, compressors, turbines, pumps, propellers, rotor stator interactions, flow separators, inlet manifolds, volutes, turbo chargers etc. The course also introduces the student to experimental techniques like flow visualization, combustion diagnostics, particle characterization and other recent imaging techniques adopted in the field of thermal research.
