Founding Partner


Dr. Sekhar Majumdar was Professor of Eminence, School of Engineering & Technology [SoET], Centurion University, Bhuvaneswar Campus since January 2021. Between 2010 and 2020, Dr, Majumdar worked as a Senior Professor and as the Head, M.Tech Thermal Power Engineering with the Nitte Meenakshi Institute of Technology, Bangalore, India. After his M.Tech in Mechanical Engineering from the Calcutta University in 1970, Dr. Majumdar served the CSIR Central Mechanical Engg. Research Institute till 1983 as a Research Scientist and completed his PhD in Flame Stabilisation in Gas Turbine Combustion Chambers.

In 1983 Dr. Majumdar joined the Institute fuer Hydrodynamics, University Karlsruhe, Germany as a Research Scientist and till 1989 took up the major responsibility of developing a General purpose CFD Code for Incompressible Flows under a German Science Foundation Project. In 1989, Dr. Majumdar joined CSIR National Aerospace Laboratories Bangalore as Senior Scientist with the Computational and Theoretical Fluid Dynamics Division of NAL Bangalore. While working with NAL Bangalore, Dr. Majumdar was the Head of the CTFD Division, NAL for the last four years (2004-2008).

He was invited by the Centre for Turbulence Research, Stanford University for one year (2001- 2002) as a Senior Visiting Fellow to work on a NASA Ames Project on developing a Navier Stokes Solver employing the concept of immersed boundary for curvilinear geometry.
