The four years I spent at the Department of Ocean Engineering at IIT Madras was pivotal in my life. A variety of interdisciplinary courses, state-of-the-art facilities and a wide array of resources helped me learn effectively and hone my problem-solving skills. More importantly, constant support from some of the best professors and an awesome peer group made the experience more enriching and fun.
Kiran Adhithya Ramakrishnan< PhD candidate, Ocean engineering department Place : Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, US< It was an exciting and enlightening experience to study in the Naval Architecture and Ocean engineering department at IIT Madras. The course was unique as it is a niche field and provided a cross disciplinary knowledge. With many eminent professors who provided valuable lessons on and off classrooms there was ample guidance for the students. The department computational facility allowed us to not only explore various software but also interact with research scholars that aided our learning. It was exciting to work on the wide array of labs present from the towing tank to the large wave flume. Laboratory classes were fun and enjoyable due to these unique facilities.
Postdoctoral Appointee, Purdue University, West Lafayette, U.S.
Undergraduate life is one of the fondest memories I have. The environment in NA, IITM was both academically challenging and nurturing at the same time. It was a very nice platform for students to express their talent, be it academic or otherwise. All professors were always encouraging students and very supportive. Even as a BTech student we get to do important research activities if we express interest. My studies in NA IITM opened up many avenues and launched my career.

Vijai Kumar B
Deputy Manager, Engineering and R&D Services, HCL Technologies
IIT Madras DOE gave me the opportunity to pursue my research interests with full freedom. The professors let you be yourself and constantly motivate you to bring the best out of you. When I proposed my guide (Dr. G Suresh Kumar) to permit me to carry out M.S. Petroleum Engineering research activities at Institute of Reservoir Studies (IRS) - ONGC, he readily accepted, sent out request letters and helped me finish my lab research and field work at Cambay basin in a tenure of six months’ time (one full semester I was away from campus working on my research areas at ONGC Ahmedabad). During the final semester, the members of the Placement Cell, my guide and Head-OE helped me with Campus Placements and eventually I got campus placed in a top MNC. At present, during my commute to office, whenever I look at the IIT-M Main Gate, a whole lot of memories springs up making me nostalgic. Thank you IIT-M DOE.

I had a fascinating experience in DOE and in IIT-M in general. I joined for MS program in 2013 and eventually upgraded to PhD program. I entered DOE as a fresh graduate with a Bachelor's in Civil Engineering and I was deeply interested to explore the Ocean Engineering Domain. DOE has the state of the art hydrodynamic fascilities and gave a wonderful research ambience! I would say the environment in DOE nurtured me to grow, develop and expand. I am particulary greateful to the Professors and to my research supervisor for helping me grow as an academician and a researcher.
