Mayank Mittal

Associate Professor

200, IC Engines Laboratory

PhD from Michigan State University, USA



  • Dr. Mayank Mittal received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Michigan State University, USA in 2009. He then worked as a Post Doctoral Research Fellow at Michigan State University, and as Senior Engineer at the technical centers of Caterpillar and Generac Power Systems of USA before joining at IIT Madras.
  • His research interests include internal combustion engines both spark-ignition and compression-ignition types, flow and combustion diagnostics for fundamental understanding of in-cylinder processes, alternative fuels, and modeling of engine and engine components including aftertreatment devices.
