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.
Providing a balanced mix of theory and practice, the curriculum also includes courses in business management, economics, foreign language and ethics. The department has several state-of-the-art facilities including graphic arts studios and modern laboratories for Automotive systems, Automotive engines, Computer aided design, Rapid prototyping,Ergonomics,Mechatronics, Product design, Controls and Vehicle dynamics. The program has been planned in conjunction with major manufacturing and product engineering companies right from its inception. A unique feature of out curriculum is the semester-long internship in the industry during which our students work on a 'live' project and receive exposure to current global design practices.
