Doctor of Philosophy in Mechanical Engineering in Asia

Compare PhD Programs in Mechanical Engineering in Asia 2018/2019

Mechanical Engineering

A PhD, also known as a Doctor of Philosophy degree, is a doctorate awarded by a university to the academic who has met all necessary qualifications and can now be considered a doctor in his or her academic field.

Mechanical engineering is the manufacturing of products that move. It encompasses the entire production process, from drafting an idea for an item, to understanding the mechanics necessary to make the item work, to the production of the completed item, to incorporating that item into larger systems.

Students who complete a part of their degree in Asia are growing in numbers. Currently, the second and the third biggest economies are in Asia. Without limitation, students have described their time in Asia as the best experience of their lives. Today, three of the four most populated countries of the world are in Asia: China, India, and Indonesia.

PhD in Mechanical Engineering Innovation in product design and manufacturing has become a major driver for industrial competitiveness and profitability in recent years. As enabling technologies to become more easily accessible, engineers are faced with increasing demands for designing and producing more complex mechanical devices to serve the needs of the society. Next-generation engineering products will be 'smart' with many functionalities; they will be made of new materials; they will increase energy efficiency and reduce environmental impact; they will vary in size from nano to mega scales, and they will be more closely integrated with information processing systems. Also as mechanical systems are becoming increasingly complex to analyze and expensive to experiment, more emphasis will have to be placed on computer-aided analysis, design, verification, and manufacturing. Our research program in mechanical engineering responds to these trends and focuses on basic research related to materials science and process engineering, product design, and information integrated manufacturing processes. In doing so applications to different physical processes are studied (e.g. energy systems, bioengineering, metal forming, polymer processing, discrete part manufacturing to name a few).Research Areas...
