M.Tech | MECH (CAD/CAM Engineering)

Programme Overview

  • M.Tech. in Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD / CAM) Programme is based on the 4th Industrial Revolution. This is a new wave of manufacturing technology which incorporates the latest developments in computers, sensors, controllers, machines and digital information technologies have caused the evolution of smart and intelligent factories.
  • This programme creates a strong base for the future CAD/CAM engineers to design modern customized production systems in real time.
  • In this programme, students are taught to customize and optimize their design for subtractive or additive manufacturing of machine parts. This programme trains students with different software tools to help manufacturers to optimize product concept in the early stages of the designing and manufacturing process.
  • It is also used to significantly improve the time and cost efficiency by making products clean and green. Moreover, students who have competitive knowledge and skills in 3D CAD/CAM have better chances of growth in their future organisations.
  • They also have the advantage of immediate employability after completion of this course and higher chances of having a career abroad.

Programme Structure:







Assessment and Evaluation

The University follows Choice Based Credit System (CBCS), which provides choice for students to select from the prescribed set of courses and earn credits. Students are awarded grades based on their performance for each courses in a semester and Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA), which is a measure of academic performance of a student in a semester. Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is used as a measure of overall cumulative performance of a student over all semesters. However, the CGPA is invariably calculated from second semester onwards to facilitate students to know their academic progress.

Every Programme has a prescribed Curriculum or the Scheme of Teaching and Evaluation. It prescribes all the courses/laboratory/other requirements for the degree and sets out the nominal sequence semester wise. Curriculum also includes SWAYAM and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), offered by premier institutions. A student desirous of additional exposure to a course, without the rigors of obtaining a good grade, ‘audits’ a course that helps him to have an edge over others in placements.

The evaluation system to assess the student is comprehensive and continuous during the entire period of Semester, by the faculty who is teaching the course. Continuous Internal Evaluation (CIE) and Semester End Examination (SEE) constitute the major evaluations prescribed for each course, with only those students maintaining a minimum standard in CIE are permitted to appear in SEE of the course. CIE and SEE to carry 50% weightage each, to enable the course to be evaluated for a total of 100 marks, irrespective of its credits.

Before the start of the Academic session of each semester, a faculty may choose for his course Internal Assessment Test and a minimum of two of the following assessment methods with suitable weightage for each: Assignments (Individual and/or Group), Seminars, Quizzes, Group Discussions, Case Studies, Practical Orientation on Design Thinking, Creativity & Innovation, Participatory & Industry Integrated Learning, Practical Activities/Problem Solving Exercises, Class Presentations, Analysis of Industry/Technical/Business Reports, Reports on Guest Lectures/Webinars/Industrial Visits, Industrial/Social/Rural Projects, Participation in Seminars/Academic Events/Symposia or any other academic activity.

The Semester End Examination for all the courses for which students registered during the semester shall be conducted at the end of each semester. Some of the courses, where the student performance is evaluated through CIE, may not have SEE.

The makeup examination facility shall be available to those students who have appeared and failed in the SEE in one or more courses in a semester.
