Master of Enginering Programs


The aim of this program is to give the aspiring University teachers a broad theoretical knowledge imbued with deep research understanding. It will enable students to tackle practical complex problems of design and development in industrial fields, and to deep dive into research areas of their interest. Some other highlights of the program are:

  • On admission, the students are simultaneously hired on Research Assistant / Teaching Assistant role, for which they are paid performance-linked stipend.
  • On successful completion of the program, the students have the option to choose (based on selection criteria)
    • Direct entry into the Fellowship PhD program of the University, where they work as Research Associates in CURIN (Chitkara University Research and Innovation Network)
    • or

    • Teaching career with School of (Electronics & Electrical Engineering / Computer Science & Engineering / Civil Engineering)
    • At the end of second year, the students can exercise option to take direct admission into PhD(Fellowship) program of the University

Academic Framework

Courses in the Master of Engineering programs are designed to give the learners breadth for teaching orientation and depth for research orientation.

We offer two foundation courses, six compulsory core courses, three concentration courses and three elective courses during our Mater of Engineering programs

The foundation courses are intended to provide students with foundation knowledge for rest of the program. The six compulsory core courses prepare students with the required core competency for the Masters students to dwell upon their chosen stream.

Concentration courses are designed to let the student deep dive in the chosen specialization area, while the elective courses give the finishing touches to his specialization area. Both Concentration and Elective courses are driven and motivated by the research projects at CURIN.

The courses in the RIFP – ME program are taught in blended learning mode. All combinations of Flipped classrooms, On-line classes and Face-to-face classes, Project based and Experiential classes are organized best suiting to a particular course and to give an exposure to various learning styles and modes to the students.

Finally the dissertation makes the students achieve their allotted research objectives thus leading to Masters degree.

The students are taught courses during winter and summer breaks and are assigned work as Research Assistants with CURIN (Chitkara University Research and Innovation Network) / Teaching Assistants with respective engineering schools during the regular semesters.

Thus, during August – November and during February – May every year, the RIFP – M.E. students assist senior teachers in BE classes / Work on an assigned Research Project.

During December – January and June – July, the RIFP – ME students are taught their RIFP – ME courses in blended learning modes.


The duration of the program varies from 30 – 36 months.
