M.Tech in maintenance engineering and tribology is available in some of the leading technical institutes in the country, including the top rated IITs. The course primarily concerns with maintenance of equipment and machines that are subjected to regular wear and tear during their use. Other than the people from the industry, the course has been especially popular with the maintenance engineers from the Army, Navy and Airforce, where maintenance and serviceability of equipment and machineries are all the more important for 24x7 war preparedness. Tribology also finds wide applications in the industry, especially the manufacturing industry.
Eligibility and course duration
You should have a relevant B.E. or B.Tech degree, preferably in the field of mechanical engineering. Admission to the M.Tech program is mostly through valid score in GATE. Some institutes may conduct an entrance test/ interview or even both to find the suitability of the candidates for the course.
Duration of the course is 2 years.
More about the course
Spread over 4 semesters, the course is especially useful for engineering graduates who will like to work in the field of maintenance in the industries. As far as tribology is concerned, it deals with the engineering principles involved during the interaction of two surfaces while in relative motion. The friction, the wear and tear that takes place in rotating parts and the lubrication procedures, all fall under the purview of the field of tribology and in extension to maintenance engineering. The coursework involves a good many topics such as Friction, Wear & Tear Studies, Lubrication, Maintenance Engineering, Failure Analysis, Reliability, Maintainability, Wear Control, Monitoring, Noise Engineering, Machine Dynamics and a few more. You will be also required to have a certain level of proficiency in subjects like physics, chemistry and material science.
Job prospects and opportunities
For personnel from the three defence services, undertaking this program helps them in understanding the dynamics involved in maintenance engineering and in bringing those maintenance standards in our country’s defence forces, thus helping them advance in their career. Tribology post graduates can also find a varied range of opportunities in the industry. Maintenance is an integral part of every industrial set up and most engineering concern think it prudent in investing on maintenance personnel. The stream of tribology also provides you scope for research. You can take up a doctoral program like PhD, directly after your M.Tech or a few years in the industry.
