'Tribology and Maintenance is the science and technology of interacting surfaces in relative motion. With the developments in science and technology, it is important to understand the interaction of the surface with its environment in order to control and maintain the performance during its operational lifetime. The program gives a professional knowledge of Tribology and Maintenance and its application to engineering and biosystems, which includes an advanced understanding of friction and wear of Engineering and Biosystems.


Tribology and Maintenance is one of the core competencies of the Department of Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering in MIT Manipal, this Master’s program provides an academically challenging and in-depth exposure to recent developments and traditional concepts of lubrication, friction and wear. Careers in tribology and maintenance are available in a range of engineering industries; from automotive, aerospace and oil and gas, to marine and medical engineering.'
