M.Tech. & M.Tech.-Ph.D. Dual Degree in Thermofluids Engineering

Thermo-fluids is the combined study of heat transfer, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, and combustion. Thermofluids program at IIT Jodhpur plans to engage in a wide range of research activities in the areas such as solar energy, clean water, thermodynamics and fluid dynamics, heat transfer and combustion, with a strong emphasis on the application of computational modeling and experimental methods. The thermal sciences area involves studies in energy conversion, the flow of liquids and gases, and the transfer of heat by means of conduction, convection and radiation. The flow and heat transfer are involved in devices and systems for energy conversion. The program involves a mix of fundamental courses followed by electives to specialize in the chosen area. Further, the project component ensures hands-on problem solving skills to enable solving of industrial problems as well as undertake research in the different areas of thermofluids. The potential employers of graduates from this program will be government and academia, automotive OEMs and ancillary manufacturers, energy sector, chemical and processing industries and others.
