The discipline of Mechanical Engineering at IITGN was started in 2008 with undergraduate and Ph.D. programs which was expanded in 2012 to include M.Tech. program in Mechanical Engineering. The discipline currently hosts research activities which can be broadly classified into:
Combustion and energetic materials
Computational solid and structural mechanics
Linear and Nonlinear Dynamics and Vibrations
Wave Propagation in Solids and Acoustic Metamaterials
Experimental Structural Dynamics
Laser based Manufacturing
The research facilities, which are continuously being upgraded, currently include:
High-performance computing lab with both GPU and CPU-based clusters
Software licences including but not limited to MATLAB and Simulink, NI LabView, Fluent, Ansys, ADAMS Car, QUARC, ABAQUS, etc.
Several stand-alone workstations
Energy systems lab with state-of-the-art safety systems
Low-speed wind tunnel
Machine shop & manufacturing facilities with computer-aided milling machine, CNCs, rapid prototyping machine, friction stir welding, etc.
Basic mechanics lab
Bench-top Control system experiments
Dynamics and Vibrations Lab (1.6kN vibration shaker, 200N modal exciter and necessary controller hardware and software, data acquisition systems, accelerometers, dynamic force sensors, stroboscope, impact hammers for conducting dynamic signal analysis, modal analysis and vibration testing)
In order to meet current and future research and teaching requirements, the discipline of Mechanical Engineering at IIT Gandhinagar seeks outstanding applicants from all areas of Mechanical Engineering to fill multiple positions at all levels.
