IIT Hyderabad M.Tech. Integrated Design & Manufacturing (IDM) admissions 2015

Looking for details of the newly launched full-time M.Tech. Integrated Design and Manufacturing (IDM) at IIT Hyderabad? This article provides information on the IDM course curriculum offered by IIT Hyderabad starting from this academic year.

When one looks at the manufacturing education courses, one sees a focus on shop-floor operations, while the design methodology aspects are overlooked. Thus the practical implementation of manufacturing technology is either very little or non-existent. To eliminate this, the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at IIT Hyderabad is offering a unique post graduate course which incorporates both manufacturing and design. The M.Tech. Integrated Design and Manufacturing (IDM) program will create professional engineers to be more versatile & industry-ready through learning modules in which students will learn about component and system design, new manufacturing methodologies & theoretical and computational approaches.

IIT Hyderabad M.Tech. Integrated Design & Manufacturing (IDM) course features


The course is full-time for a duration of 2 years, covering 4 semesters.


The semester-wise curriculum will include various modules, called fractals, each fractal having varying credits from 1 to 3. The aim of having fractals is to provide a wider knowledge than that being currently offered in existing manufacturing and production planning courses. Thus the student will learn not only the fundamentals of manufacturing and production planning, but also develop analytical skills, learn about computational techniques & get an in-depth insight into mechanics and design.

As part of the M.Tech. Integrated Design and Manufacturing (IDM) program, students have to pursue the following mandatory courses:
  • Manufacturing Processes

  • Design for Manufacturability & Assembly

  • Finite Element Methods (FEM)

  • Computational labs related to FEM and CFD analysis

  • Material Science & Material Selection

  • Scaling Laws & Multi-scale Manufacture

  • Computer Integrated Manufacturing

  • Elasticity & Plasticity

  • Fluid Mechanics & Heat Transfer

  • Process Control & Optimization

  • Artificial Intelligence

Students can choose one core manufacturing elective from advance courses in material removal, joining and generative process.

Additionally, there are options to select from the open electives. The list of these open electives is as follows:
  • Automation & Robotics
  • Management of Manufacturing Systems(supply chain etc)
  • Additive Manufacturing
  • Micro-Manufacturing
  • Measurement Science & Techniques
  • Reliability & Fault Diagnostics
  • Plastic Part Manufacture & Design
  • Fatigue, Fracture & Life Cycle Estimation

  • To be offered in the future are also these: (i) Precision Machine Design and (ii) Phase Change Phenomenon.
