ABOUT Ph.D. PROGRAMME
Department of Mechanical Engineering aims to develop skills in, and awareness of, research methods that are practiced by Ph.D. students in engineering. The nature of the Ph.D. program depends on the career aspirations of the student. Students who aspire to join academia might want to go more into exploratory research, whereas students with industry in mind might want to focus more on practical aspects. Research forms an important part of developing critical understanding. students are expected to draw on independently sourced research and start outlining plans for their primary research. Adopting a writing style that is coherent, objective and supported by theoretical and specialist sources, students will present arguments for how their study might contribute to the current research, as well as the limitations of their methodology. It is expected that students will use the library in their own time in order to continue making use of theoretical and non-theoretical books, journals, magazines and newspapers.
Ph.D. RESEARCH METHODS
The research methods are an integral part of the study, and its purpose is to explain how a scholar will conduct the research and which data collection and analysis methods will be used. Research Methods such as :
DESIGNING OF Ph.D. RESEARCH METHODS
Research scholar must have a clear working hypothesis and research questions. In fact, preparing a research design is a challenging task and involves the following tasks such as :
WHAT DOES A Ph.D. INVOLVE?
A typical PhD normally involves:
The Ph.D. degree is typically split into three stages. By way of illustration, a three-year Ph.D. may follow the following pattern:
All Ph.D. students are required to register and successfully complete a minimum course credits as per the Ph.D. rules of the Institute, details of which will be made available to the students at the time of admission. Curriculum and syllabus will be decided by the Research Scrutiny Committee (RSC). The RSC may consider full or partial remission of course work and residential requirement as considered appropriate in deserving cases.
A candidate is required to register with a specific faculty guide in a selected area of specialization at the time of enrolling for the programme with duly filled in application form along with documents and by paying the requisite fees. On successful completion of prescribed courses the candidate gets registered with effect from the date of enrollment or a semester later depending on the candidate’s qualification (M.Tech. or B.Tech.) as the case may be. Subsequently, registrations are renewed at the beginning of every semester, subject to satisfactory progress in work.
ANNUAL PROGRESS REPORT FOLLOWED BY A TALK
All candidates must have to submit the annual progress report of research work of their domain followed by a talk at the end of academic year . On successful completion of progress seminar, as certified by RSC, the registration will be renewed for the next year. The registration of non-performing candidates may be terminated after due warning.
All scholars either in the institute or externally in any industry / institute after taking admission must visit website giet.edu & complete registration formalities for every semester in the month of July and January each year
Facilities of research are offered by the department on approved topics leading to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy.
Facilities exist for research and development works in the following areas of Mechanical Engineering are :
Apart from above, the research work may be carried out in the various field , such as: Modelling and simulation, Robotics, Additive manufacturing, industry 4.0 and multidisciplinary research work, etc..
