To keep pace with rapid advancement in technology, the country requires high quality manpower with technical and managerial capabilities in 21st century. There are primarily three distinct categories of technical manpower needed by the industry in the country, i.e., engineers, technicians and skilled workers. Personnel of each of these categories play an equally important role in the day-to-day running as well as the development and growth of industry. The institutions which are producing technical manpower, therefore, need teachers who have the required knowledge and skills to train good technicians and engineers. Thus, there is a great need to reorient and upgrade the knowledge and skills of existing teachers of technical institutions through Industry oriented and Practice based Programmes in Engineering and Technology at Master’s Degree level. These programmes will help develop the professional capabilities desired by teachers for training technicians/engineers that would meet the changing requirements of industry.
Apart from teaching, there are some very significant aspects of technical education management and training towards which the people are working in the technical education system. To meet the training requirements of such personnel engaged in the planning and management of technical education, curriculum development, instructional material development, rural and community development, entrepreneurship development, industry-institute interaction etc. at various levels, there was an urgent need that a Master’s degree programme in Engineering Education which provides different specializations matching the emerging requirements be instituted. In view of the foregoing, the institute started offering the following ME programmes.
M.E. Programmes :
The institute offers industry-oriented and practice-based Master's Degree Programmes of 02 years duration affiliated to Panjab University, Chandigarh in the following disciplines:
Specialized Programmes in Emerging Areas of IoT, AI, and Robotics (Regular) affiliated to Panjab University, Chandigarh
Regular/ Modular M.E. Programmes affiliated to Panjab University, Chandigarh
M.E. in Computer Science and Engineering Specialization in IoT (Internet of Things)
ME in Mechanical Engineering (Manufacturing Technology)
M.E. in Electronics and Communication Engineering Specialization in AI (Artificial Intelligence)
ME in Civil Engineering (Construction Technology and Management )
M.E. in Mechanical Engineering (Robotics)
ME in Computer Science & Engineering
ME in Electrical Engineering (Instrumentation & Control)
ME in Electronics & Communication Engineering
ME (Modular) Programmes: Master of Engineering Programmes (Modular)
Towards facilitating qualification enhancement of teachers in technical institutes who hold a Bachelor’s degree in their respective disciplines, the institute designed and developed a new path breaking system and approached All India Council for Technical Education, New Delhi and Panjab University, Chandigarh for approval of Master of Engineering Modular Programmes. With approvals secured, the institute started offering these programmes in five disciplines namely (i) ME in Mechanical Engineering (Manufacturing Technology) (ii) ME in Civil Engineering (Construction Technology and Management) (iii) ME Computer Science & Engineering (iv) ME Electrical Engineering (Instrumentation & Control) (v) ME Electronics & Communication Engineering w.e.f. June, 2005, thus creating a new era in technical education in the country.
Fresh Engineering graduates shall be admitted on the basis of valid GATE score. All such candidates must apply for these programmes in the institute by the last date on the application form downloaded from www.nitttrchd.ac.in. 60% of the sanctioned seats in the Regular M.E Programmes will be allotted through CCMT-2020.
