Engineer with Innovation

To develop Design Professionals with a strong multidisciplinary background and a deep sense of aesthetics with a focus on Automotive Engineering and Biomedical Design.

"The mission of the programme is to make IIT Madras a global centre of excellence in Engineering Design"

"From concept to a component that meets a desired function", aptly describes Engineering Design. It is a decision-making process, often iterative, in which the basic sciences and the engineering sciences are applied to convert resources optimally to meet a stated objective. Students are introduced to the design process in the first year along with fundamental mathematics, science and engineering, graphic art, design, and aesthetics. They are trained not only on the mechanical aspects of design, but also in electronics, controls, and embedded systems for all round skill development. Courses in geometric modeling, finite elements, materials engineering, automotive engineering, robotics and biomedical device engineering are also offered.
