Kunja Bihari Sahu

Professor

I have accomplished the graduation and master degree in Mechanical Engineering from University College of Engineering, Burla, Odisha (presently, Veer Surendra Sai University of Technology) and Ph. D. degree from Jadavpur University, Kolkata. Published more than 25 articles in different journals and conferences. Supervised 3 Ph. D. and 15 M. Tech. students. My research interest is Heat Transfer and Combustion. I am a life member of Indian Society for Technical Education (ISTE), Indian Society for Heat and Mass Transfer (ISHMT), Indian Science Congress Association (ISCA). I am also a fellow of Institution of Engineers (India).
