M-Tech in Aerospace Engineering / M-Tech in Ammunition Technology

  • Online Interaction enabled by a dedicated band-width network set-up by Center for Continuing Education (CCE) at IIT-Madras and the organization where students are working
  • Interactive virtual class rooms at IIT Madras and the Web MTech programme has already been running for a year.
  • Live online classes, but lectures will be recorded and made available to the students for reference

No loss of manpower/No study leave

  • Those working in Industry & research labs to enhance their knowledge & skills and earn an additional degree
  • Reach out to a larger fraction of those working in aerospace organizations
  • No relocation for higher education

Eligibility for the program

  • Registered through an industry/ organization recognized by IIT-M
  • Forwarded through/by the industry
  • Pass an entry test on basic maths, fluid mechanics, strength of materials & thermodynamics
  • The candidates should possess Bachelor's degree in Aerospace/Civil/Chemical/Computer Science/Electrical/Mechanical/Metallurgical/Naval Architecture OR Master's degree in Physics/Mathematics/Chemistry
  • The candidate should have a minimum of 2 years industry experience

Program modalities

  • 1 lecture hour every evening on a working day
  • One tutorial hour per week for all the core courses.
  • A year is divided into 3 trimesters of 15 weeks each, two courses per trimester
  • 2 personal interactions with faculty in every course
  • Inputs will be taken from the students & the organizations to shortlist electives from a basket
  • 1 year project: any problem of interest to the organization with some academic content. Project guidance can be from within the organization or by the faculty. It will always be evaluated by IITM.
  • No laboratory courses as they already have enough practical experience. If there is a demand from Industry, lab courses can also be offered
  • Lab credits replaced by tutorial credits to encourage class room problem solving
  • Project at parent company
  • If guidance is required by any faculty, Industry has to work the costing with the faculty as a consultancy project

Course Brief

  • Degree certificate Identical to that awarded to regular students resident at IITM
