About the Conference
Engineering Design in Mechanical Engineering is advancing at a rapid pace due to rapid growth of technologies in various related fields including computer science which has revolutionized the way in which the information is processed, shared and inferred. One of the main purpose of engineering design is to provide a solution to a problem by applying scientific knowledge and in doing so it also becomes important for the design to have an aesthetic look with an enhanced product life. For any design engineer it becomes necessary to look into the need of the design, research the possible designs, selecting the most promising design, evaluating the design, communicating the design and re-design if required. The conference will focus on the recent topics of design engineering where various sessions will be conducted on recent topics ranging from designing concept to simulation of concepts further digging into enhancing the product life.
The conference aims to bring together passionate people from academia and engineers from industries, scientists from research labs, researchers from R&D institutions and from educational institutions all over the world to deliberate upon the challenges, opportunities and advances in Mechanical Engineering Design in the wake of creating newer opportunities in addressing the emerging requirements in the society.
About Srm Institute of Science and Technology
SRM Institute of Science and Technology (SRM IST) formerly known as 'SRM University’, is located in an extensive sylvan campus of 380 acres skirting the National Highways (NH145), in the outskirts of Chennai. SRM IST is one of the top ranking Universities and most premier engineering destinations in India, which is established in 1985 by the Founder Chancellor, Dr. T.R. Paarivendhar. Now it is functioning in campuses located at Kattankulathur (KTR), Vadapalani, and Ramapuram in Chennai and one in Modi Nagar, Ghaziabad with over 52000 students and 3200 faculty members, offering wide range of undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programs in Engineering, Management, Medicine & Health Sciences, Agriculture, Law and Science & Humanities. The Institution has moved up through international alliances and collaborative initiatives to achieve global excellence. SRM IST also collaborates with various foreign Universities. Now the Institute enjoys an unsurpassed reputation in academic and corporate circles being the preferred manpower source for vision to be recognized as a world-class learning institution. SRM IST has been accorded with ‘Category- I’ status by the MHRD-UGC, Government of India and also accredited by NAAC with 'A++' Grade in the year 2018.
