  • Master's Degree: M.E. Design Engineering

    The curriculum for the M.E. Design Engineering programme has been specially designed to ensure transformation of a mechanical engineering graduate into a full-fledged Design Engineer. In addition, the students will gain networked knowledge in the core and intersection areas of design, development, simulation and manufacturing. In addition, the student will carry out design projects as well as dissertation which emphasizes on developing a well-rounded education through an exposure to academic and professional traits. Students are also exposed to the design engineering software tools such as AUTOCAD, CATIA, ANSYS, MSC ADAMS, DIGIMAT, ESPIRIT, DFX, and AUTOMATION STUDIO

  • Doctoral Degree: PhD. Mechanical Engineering

    The Ph.D. program is the highest degree offered by the Mechanical Engineering department at BITS Pilani, Dubai campus. The objective of this program is to breed, nurture and produce next generation industry leaders or high quality academicians. Primary emphasis is on independent research under the supervision of a faculty member using either in house facilities or through collaborative means. The choice of topic depends on the interest of the prospective candidate, relevance in the chosen field, novelty of research and practical feasibility in terms of time and available resources. They also gain valuable experience through the teaching program requiring them to teach a topic in a related undergraduate course. A Ph.D. candidate is expected to do high quality research, present their research at various national and international conferences, publish in well-known peer reviewed journals and develop networking skills necessary for developing collaborative research. A minimum of two publications are expected in order to graduate which is through a final Ph.D. dissertation seminar in presence of an external examiner. Students graduated from the department with Ph.D. degrees are all well established in their careers.

    Details of all faculty members and their areas of research interests are mentioned in the department faculty section. Please feel free to communicate with them if you are interested. Or kindly fix an appointment to discuss your interests. A comprehensive list of the available laboratory and software facilities is given in the facilities section.

  • Minor in Aeronautics

    Aeronautics is an exhilarating field encompassing the fundamentals of aerodynamics (interaction of air with objects in motion), propulsion (power systems responsible for the generation of thrust for providing motion), structures (design of airframes and material characteristics), and flight mechanics (trajectory study and optimization), as applied to air-borne vehicles within the atmosphere, and to rockets and spacecrafts outside.

    Core Courses:

    • Principles of Aerodynamics
    • Aircraft Propulsion
    • Flight Mechanics and Controls

    Elective Courses:

  • Minor in Robotics & Automation

    The Minor in Robotics & Automation aims to impart specialized knowledge and skills in robotics and automation required by engineers to the current demands of various industrial sectors. Automobile, aerospace & defense, logistics engineering and factory automation companies are currently asking for engineering graduates with add-on skills in these areas. Feedback has established that several sectors of industry need the newly recruited employees with knowledge and skills in 'automation', 'robotics', and 'mechatronics'. Currently, the need of core courses of any B.E. programme of the Institute limits sufficient coverage of these topics in the existing core and hence the only way students can complement their learning with these specialized courses is through a minor programme. This minor programme has been designed by keeping that need in focus. This minor programme consists of a fairly generic core so as to be relevant to students of any discipline and a broad set of elective courses covering application of the fundamentals of robotics and automation to various industry sectors.
