thermal engineering


M.E.(Thermal Engineering)- Stands for Master of Engineering in Thermal Engineering. Typically, a Master of Engineering (Thermal Engineering) is a two year course, the minimum eligibility for which is a B.E (Thermal Engineering) or any equivalent engineering degree. Thermal engineering is the process of controlling heat as well as temperature rise in the computer. Subjects studied under this degree are Energy Conservation and Management, Advanced Thermodynamics, Advanced Heat Transfer, Applied Mathematics for Mechanical Engineers, Refrigeration Systems Design, Environmental Engineering and Pollution Control, Instrumentation in Thermal Engineering, Internal Combustion Engine Design and design of Condensers Evaporators & Cooling Towers.



There are a lot of career opportunities in this field. Engineers from this field are employed mostly in production firms or they can also opt for managerial and executive position in public and private sectors. Professionals in this career can also opt for teaching jobs in universities and colleges. This field has lot of opportunities for those who want to pursue a career as a researcher. Thermal engineering is one of the highly remunerative and challenging fields.


Thermal engineering laboratory is one of the core laboratories of mechanical engineering branch which is mainly intended to introduce the fundamental theory and the practical industrial applications in the field of thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid mechanics and solar energy. This laboratory supports the courses for the undergraduate and post graduate studies. Moreover, this laboratory also supports the advanced research in the area of thermal engineering, heat transfer, and fluid mechanics.
