UPES Computational Fluid Dynamics students activities under the supervision of Dr Ugven.

  • 3 of our students (2011/2012) who are part of Team Indus won the 1 Million USD Milestone Prize for the Google Lunar X Prize. (the aim is to create a rover robot and send to the moon and perform sampling collection etc on the moon)
  • Simiti Maini and her contribution to the ISRO Mars Orbiter Mission
  • The Star Observation Night concluded at the campus. The bond which was forged between Rose City Astronomers Club and our Club Infinity of UPES (Space Club), strengthened  as sister clubs.
  • 2 MTech CFD students are doing their pure research internship in the biggest Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Europe in Touluese.
  • MTech CFD students who are attending University of Nantes (Polytech Nantes) have become the toppers of their program (1st, 2nd and 3rd place).

UPES Computation Fluid Dyanmics Students at Toulouse

Two of UPES Computational Fluid Dynamics students who are doing research internship in the biggest Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Toulouse, Europe.   These students are at Institut de CFD Students at ToulouseMécanique des Fluides de Toulouse (IMFT), France for a 6 month research internship from February 16th, 2015 to the end of July 2015. During this period, Mr. Prashant Kulkarni is doing research activities on the numerical simulation of two-phase flows in the group Interface at IMFT. Mr. Harshit Bhatia is doing research activities on the numerical simulation of two-phase flows in the group Particles, Spray and Combustion at IMFT. They are offered stipend of 400 Euros / month for daily expenses and 300 Euros / month as a participation to the rent accommodation.
