Department of Industrial Engineering and Management

The Department of Industrial Engineering & Management, under the School of Engineering & Technology offers M.Tech in Industrial Engineering & Management.

M. Tech in Industrial Engineering & Management – This is a two year AICTE approved in-house degree programme with an intake capacity of 23 students. The programme is interdisciplinary in nature and prepares students to undertake multi-disciplinary assignments in corporate organizations as well as equips them for academic / teaching positions in a multi-subject environment in a contemporary educational institution. The state-of-the-art encompasses a lot of engineering fields of study such as production and product system design, manufacturing, quality engineering & management, supply chain and logistics, ergonomics, reliability studies, enterprise information solutions and industrial management. Eligibility for admission to this programme is a B.E/ B.Tech degree in any branch of engineering / technology or equivalent qualification. Candidates with valid GATE score are eligible for AICTE scholarship.

Some special features of the programme include product modeling and technopreneurship. The Industrial Engineering laboratory is located in the ground floor of the University. The laboratory currently has CNC Milling and CNC lathe machines. The department uses software like AutoCAD 2006, AutoCAD 2000i, Statistica, Matlab as well as different flavours of Linux.
Duration: Four Semesters (out of which One and half semester will be for taught courses and balance two and half semesters for Term Paper, project/Thesis Work)

Objective: Combining the training of Engineers with management.

Career: The scope of Industrial Engineering is expanding over the years and more so when combined with Management Capabilities. Industrial Engineers (IEs) are synonymous with System Integrators – A big picture thinker. They engineer processes and systems that improve quality and productivity. IEs figure out how to improve things – how to increase efficiency of work methods, improve product features, better utilization of materials or energy and save enterprises money, which is why more and more companies are recruiting industrial engineers in a variety of settings / departments and subsequently promoting them into management positions. Professionals trained in Industrial Engineering & Management work in a variety of industry / business.

Scope: The Programme is interdisciplinary in nature and prepares students to undertake multidisciplinary assignments in corporate organizations. The state-of-the-art encompasses a lot of engineering fields of study such as production and product system design, quality engineering & management, supply chain and logistics, ergonomics, reliability studies, industrial management and information technology. Apart from the classroom teaching, practical sessions will be held in laboratories. Resources will also be drawn from industry to cater to the changing needs. The teaching methodologies stress on developing both analytic & holistic frame of mind among students through their involvement in practical and real – life projects for developing commercially viable products, through assignments, case studies, colloquiums and seminars.

Who might apply:

  • Engineering professionals who intend to pursue a career in techno-management / managerial positions.
  • Academic professionals in technical institutions who intends to teach industrial management and subjects in MBA courses along with the engineering subjects.
  • Professionals teaching/instructing Mechanical Sciences / workshops in Engineering Colleges.
  • Those who may opt in the future to carryout Research / Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering / Management or in similar fields.

Eligibility: B.E / B.Tech in any branch of Engineering / technology or equivalent, Those who are appearing this year for their final examination may also apply and will be considered for provisional admission if selected.

Selection Procedure: Candidates will have to appear for PGET.

How to apply: Admission notification will be advertised in leading news papers and in the departmental website around May every year.
