TEACHING

Current teaching responsibilities

I am teaching several courses in mechanical engineering mostly related to product design, for the last three years working as an assistant professor. At IIT Ropar, I teach product design and realization (two courses), CAM/CAM, and design research to undergraduate students, and sustainable design and manufacturing to post graduate students. My course has resulted in patents, and the course evaluations by students are excellent. Additionally, I am supervising many design projects, and many of them are being recommended for patents. Most of my courses are project based, leading to innovations. Apart from these, I have also delivered short-term courses and presented invited talks in different institutes.

Course sites

GEL 101, Product Design and Realization –I, is a four credit course of one hour of lecture, two hours of computer lab, and four hours of manufacturing lab each week. I have offered this course for the last six semesters. The course is compulsory for all the students of the Institute and each semester sixty students of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science and engineering attend this course.
