M.Phil in Mechanical Engineering is two years course with 2 semesters in each year. Examinations take place after each semester.

In the first year, students are required students to choose a coursework of one subject compulsory out of the offered courses each year and they are evaluated at the end of the each semester. The Second year comprises purely of a dissertation prepared by the student through research. Thus, a topic of research is chosen as per student’s interest. This includes involving in research methodologies and internal assessment.

The course delivery methods in the program include discussions, presentations, classroom performance, assignments, attendance, and seminars.

Scheme of Assessment

In M.Phil in Mechanical Engineering, the scheme of assessment is based on the written test, the internal assessment, term paper and dissertation based on one selected course of the student by the student. The students are examined out of 100 marks for each theory paper.

The final weight age for each of these parameters is given below:
