Dr. Suresh Nagesh is a Chair Professor in Computational Mechanics, with CORI (Crucible of Research and Innovation) a center for interdisciplinary exploration and Department of Telecom at PESIT. Dr. Suresh is a veteran with the automotive and aerospace industry for over 22 years. Dr. Suresh an IIT Kanpur Alumni, has a Ph.D from Drexel University, Philadelphia, US and worked under Professor A S D Wang, a world’s authority in the field of composites, delamination, fracture and finite element applications to composites. In particular, Dr. Suresh’s Ph.D student was a Boeing sponsored NASA project called ATCAS (Advanced Technology Composite Aircraft Structures). Later Dr. Suresh worked in USA with Ford R&d, DaimlerChrysler Research and Development, came back to India as a part of GE R&D, lead and built the entire advanced engineering team for DaimlerChrysler Research and Technology India, was responsible for GM R&D India and most recently was the Managing Director at Voith and helped start and build the Votih Engineering Services to serve Airbus activities for Voith across the globe from India.


Dr. Suresh has 7 US patents. One of the patents got the Walter P Chrysler award, a distinguished award given by Chrysler Corporation for the best two patents of that year. Dr. Suresh is recipient of the GE Corporate Technology award, Star leadership award by DCRTI and many others. One chapter in 12 elements for great management, a book by a well known HR organization Gallop, is written on Dr. Suresh for his contributions to build the advanced vehicle engineering group at DCRTI. Dr. Suresh has authored several papers (both Journal and conference papers of high repute) and has been a key note speaker at many international technical conferences. Dr. Suresh was also an adjunct faculty at Wayne State university and Oakland University in USA.


CARE is currently working on many funded projects. CARE’s research topics include application of computational mechanics to product development at all levels from materials to the product. Dr. Suresh also has enabled starting of new domains on computational bio-mechanics, electric and hybrid vehicle technologies. CARE is mainly involved in Research, Consulting and Training activities for and along with the industry.
