About the Centre:

This is a special establishment to carry out R&D projects for Industries. Students from 1st year through 3rd year are engaged in this centre on various projects in R&D and Numerical Simulation. This Centre is equipped with high configuration workstations with research version of Simulia Abaqus and Ansys software with unlimited features to solve any real time problems. Special software such as FeSafe, Tosca and Insight are also available in the Additive Manufacturing Centre to carry out fatigue analysis, topological optimization and Design of experiments respectively. A strong basic on physics and mathematics is being imparted from the first year onwards to create the ability among the students to be inducted into the project. Interactions with experts from IITs, NITs and Industries are arranged to train the students through this centre.
