Diploma in Advanced CFD Analysis - DACFD
India is identified as one of the world's fastest emerging CFD market with growth rate more than 20%. Many MNC's have well established CFD design centre in India, and many more have started to establish there CFD design centre, but the CFD industry is lacking quality man power. DACFD is a unique professional course which bridges the gap between YOU and CFD industry.

 Computational Fluid Dynamics needs through understanding of
fluid flow and heat transfer. Understanding of fundamentals
plays a crucial role in problem definition and
interpretation of results. Initial few months will be
devoted to lay the foundation stone. Once the fundamentals
are firm, advance topics will be covered along with training
on commercial softwares. The course is structured to cater
to industrial requirements. The course syllabus is
formulated by considering industrial requirements and inputs
from various working professionals and IIT faculty.


Program Structure


      The curriculum is distributed in five levels, viz.
foundation, core, advanced topics, industry specific
training and product specific training.  

      The training program consists of a number of
conventional lectures which includes fundamental, core and
advanced topics. This includes industry specific modules to
give hands-on experience to students on specific industry
problems. This also includes product specific modules so
that the students will get experience on widely used
software packages in industry. To bridge the gap between
theory and practice, students will undertake a project at
the end of the course.
