What are the specializations available with M.Tech. in Mechanical Engineering? Which institutes offer the relevant courses?
Mechanical Engineering covers a wide range of subjects related to electrical, electronics and computer science engineering. Therefore, at postgraduate level, mechanical engineers are provided several specialisations, some of which are niche areas under mechanical engineering and some come under multidisciplinary science. Given below are some of the options:

Robotics: Robotics is an interdisciplinary science of mechanical, electronics, electrical, instrumentation and software engineering. The subject is studied through specialisations like Robotics, Mechatronics and Artificial Intelligence. Robotics engineers are hired by industries like electronics, electrical, manufacturing, instrumentation, defence, aerospace, automobile, robotics, tool design and aviation.

Andhra University, Visakhapatnam ( offers M.Tech in Computer Science and Technology with Artificial Intelligence and Robotics as specialisation.

CAD/ CAM: Computer Aided Designing (CAD) deals with using computer technology for designing tools, machinery and buildings. Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) is about controlling machinery with the aid of computers for the purpose of manufacture.

Osmania University, Hyderabad offers M.Tech in Mechanical Engineering with CAD/ CAM as specialisation.
