| Message From the Head of Department


The Department of Applied Mechanics & Biomedical Engineering was established in 1959 and is one of the oldest departments in IIT Madras. We are a truly interdisciplinary department with a very strong research atmosphere and is the only department in IIT Madras with an exclusive focus on post-graduate students. At present, we have 28 faculty members, 3* post-doctoral fellows, approximately 125 PhD students, 60 MS scholars apart from about 30* M.Tech students on our rolls.

The Department has three broad groups – Biomedical Engineering, Fluid Mechanics and Solid Mechanics. However, the background of the faculty members are in varied disciplines as Mechanical, Civil, Aerospace, Chemical, Electrical, Biomedical and Applied Physics and reflect the interdisciplinary nature of the Department.
