Amal Jyothi College of Engineering

M.Tech in Machine Design 18 Seats

The overall mission of Machine Design Programme in Masters Level is to serve industry and society on a long term basis by developing and delivering excellent knowledge and highly skilled people. This means that the same high attention is paid to the quality of both research and education.

M.Tech. in Machine Design was started in the year 2009 in the department of Mechanical Engineering. The program is approved by AICTE, Government of Kerala and is affiliated to Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam . The program curriculum involves Analysis of static and dynamic forces to design machine elements to meet strength, safety, reliability and cost specifications. The program focuses on Design of Mechanisms and components using analytical, Numerical and Experimental approaches. It aims to provide knowledge of behavior of materials and systems in both elastic and plastic ranges, failure modes and mechanisms in both static and dynamic conditions.

The program mainly focuses on Theory of Elasticity and Plasticity, Theory of Plates and Shells, Advanced Vibrations, Finite Element Analysis, Kinematics Design, Tribology and Bearing Design, Fracture Mechanics, Experimental Stress Analysis, etc. Students have opportunity to work in the areas of design and analysis in association with the on-going research projects of the faculty members.


The program is supported with:

  • Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) Laboratory (ANSYS, LS-Dyna, Abacus)
  • Computer Aided Design (CAD) Laboratory (Pro-E)
  • Nanotechnology Laboratory


  • There  are ample opportunities to get involved in projects listed below but not restricted to:
  • Design and Analysis of Mechanisms
  • Structural Analysis of Complex Systems (Aerospace Automotive, Naval, etc)
  • Dynamic Behavior [Impact, Damping, Buckling] of Systems
  • Thermal Analysis of systems
  • Fatigue and Fracture Analysis
  • Design of Macro, Micro and Nanosystems
  • Design and Analysis of Coating System


Mechanical Engineers touch almost every aspect of technology.They create machines, products and technological systems that benefit society.

Mechanical engineering projects can range from designing heart valves and artificial limbs, clockwork radios and dentists’ drills, building racing cars, jet engines, space modules, solar heaters and wind mills. Mechanical Engineering is a large and diversified field. All engineers have a common interest in heat and motion. Mechanical engineers use the principles of mathematics,material science, physics and economics to design, to manufacture and to maintain mechanical equipments. Our household appliances, chimneys, cars, ships and airplanes have been designed, tested and manufactured by mechanical engineers. Wherever there are machines, there is a necessity of Mechanical Engineers. Wherever Mechanical Engineers work, they are engaged in one or more of eight different fields: Research, Development, Design, Testing, Manufacturing, Operations, Maintenance, Marketing & Sales Administration. Mechanical Engineering is specifically concerned with anything that has movable parts. As a result, there are job opportunities for Mechanical Engineers in all fields of work such as transport, health, defence, manufacturing, power station, energy management, entertainment, finance, publishing, building, design and research, to name a few.

CFD Centre

The increasing demand of Computational analysis of Mechanical Engineering problems makes it inevitable to equip our students to perform the same. It is in this perspective the thermal stream of the department has founded a computational centre for students and to assist the faculty in their research. Currently the centre provides linux,Windows platforms and Computational tools like OpenFOAM, ANSYS Fluent and CFX.  All the necessary arrangements with highly trained faculties and technical support are made in the department for the smooth working of the CFD Centre.

Career Guidance Cell

The objective of the career guidance cell is to keep the students well-aware of all the possible career options in their purview and to help them make informed and wise decisions about their future. Career Guidance Cell actively promotes student career counseling and placement services.

Our students are required to do a self assessment upon arriving at our institute. We believe that, to get the best out of our programs and other extracurricular activities, the students are aware of their new environment and their own needs and ambitions.

Study Circle

Study circle is a platform for sharing experience and expertise of a faculty among  the colleagues. It aims to improve knowledge and generate interest in the different areas of engineering  and also to provide guidelines for better teaching practices and life styles. Each individual faculty have their own core areas and approaches for teaching. Sharing those thoughts and way of thinking opens up new avenues for better working and self improvement.  It also aims to create a better work place of choice for the faculties. The meeting  is planned to convene on every thursdays.
