SKU: IIT Guwahati Category:



There is a need for machine tools and processes which can accurately and easily machine the most difficult-to-machine materials and work pieces with intricate and accurate shapes. In order to meet these challenges, a number of newer material removal processes have now been developed to the level of commercial utilization. These newer methods are also called unconventional in the sense that conventional tools are not employed for metal cutting. Instead, energy in its direct form is used to remove the material from the work piece. This course aims at bringing the students up-to-date with the latest technological developments and research trends in the field of unconventional / nontraditional / modern machining processes.


Intended for UG and PG students who plan to take up this subject as their future research area. Also, for practitioner in industries who want to implement new development or technologies in advanced machining to their factory.

Dr. Manas Das is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, India since 2012. He received his Masters and Ph.D. degree from Mechanical engineering Department, IIT Kanpur. His research areas include Advanced Finishing and Nano-finishing Processes, Magnetorheological Finishing (MRF) Process, Advanced/Non-traditional Machining Processes, Micromachining processes. Dr. Das has published more than 20 papers in reputed journal and conferences. He has also written 2 book chapters in the area of surface finishing. Presently, he is supervising 5 Ph.D. students in the broad area of manufacturing.

Certification Process

1. Join the course
Learners may pay the applicable fees and enrol to a course on offer in the portal and get access to all of its contents including assignments. Validity of enrolment, which includes access to the videos and other learning material and attempting the assignments, will be mentioned on the course. Learner has to complete the assignments and get the minimum required marks to be eligible for the certification exam within this period.

COURSE ENROLMENT FEE: The Fee for Enrolment is Rs. 2000 + GST

2. Watch Videos+Submit Assignments
After enrolling, learners can watch lectures and learn and follow it up with attempting/answering the assignments given.

3. Get qualified to register for exams
A learner can earn a certificate in the self paced course only by appearing for the online remote proctored exam and to register for this, the learner should get minimum required marks in the assignments as given below:

Assignment score = Score more than 50% in at least 6/8 assignments.
Exam score = 50% of the proctored certification exam score out of 100
Only the e-certificate will be made available. Hard copies will not be dispatched.”

4. Register for exams
The certification exam is conducted online with remote proctoring. Once a learner has become eligible to register for the certification exam, they can choose a slot convenient to them from what is available and pay the exam fee. Schedule of available slot dates/timings for these remote-proctored online examinations will be published and made available to the learners.

EXAM FEE: The remote proctoring exam is optional for a fee of Rs.1500 + GST. An additional fee of Rs.1500 will apply for a non-standard time slot.

5. Results and Certification
After the exam, based on the certification criteria of the course, results will be declared and learners will be notified of the same. A link to download the e-certificate will be shared with learners who pass the certification exam.
