International Conference on Advances in Thermal Engineering and Applications

March 19-20, 2021



About the Conference

Thermal Engineering plays a crucial role in the design, development, operation and maintenance of almost all the systems of mechanical industry, electrical industry, automobile industry, aerospace industry and HVAC industry. This conference aims to impart research skills to the researchers and faculty members to improve the quality of research in the area of thermal energy and its application. This programme will bring a positive transformation among the faculty members towards research work and enable the participants to develop competence in understanding the advances and ongoing research in the field of thermal energy systems.


SRM Institute of Science and Technology (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. SRMIST 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, Ramapuram Part (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. SRMIST 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. SRMIST has been accorded Category I status by MHRD-UGC of Government of India and also accredited by NAAC with 'A++' Grade in the year 2018.
