Brief Background:
 
Dr Sanat Agrawal has done his graduation and doctorate in Mechanical Engineering from IIT Kanpur, UP, India. He obtained his Master of Engineering in 1990 with honors from University of Roorkee, India (presently IIT Roorkee) in Mechanical Engineering. His specialization in Master of Engineering was Machine Design Engg. He was awarded PhD degree in 2002 from IIT Kanpur. The title of his PhD dissertation was "Analysis and Synthesis of Mechanical Error in Rapid Prototyping Processes Using Stochastic Approach." He analyzed the error at the tool tip in several Rapid Prototyping (RP) processes (now known as Additive Manufacturing or AM in short) due to tolerances and clearances in the links and joints. He also performed optimal allocation of tolerances and clearances in the links and joints to minimize the error at the tool tip.

He has several years of experience in Computer Aided Design (CAD) and AM area. He served as a Foreign Guest Researcher at National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), MD, USA. He worked there on generating an information model for the representation of heterogeneous material data based on ISO 10303 (STEP). This will improve data transfer capabilities from design software, e.g. CAD to additive manufacturing (AM) systems. He was a post-doctoral fellow at the Central University of Technology (CUT) at Bloemfontein, South Africa. He developed a methodology to make terrain models using GIS (Geographic Information Systems) data by AM. He was also a post-doctoral fellow at Southern Methodist University (SMU) at Dallas, TX, USA. He has experience in several CAD, CAE and FEA software.

Dr Agrawal has several publications in national and international journals. He has also published a book. He is a reviewer of reputed journals like, Computer-Aided Design (CAD), Rapid Prototyping Journal (RPJ) and International Journal of Production Research (IJPR). He is also a reviewer of South African Journal of Industrial Engineering (SAJIE) and RAPDASA conference proceedings. He is a regular member of SME (Society of Manufacturing Engrs), a member of ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engrs) and RAPDASA (Rapid Product Development Association of South Africa). He is also a life member of ISTE. Dr Agrawal is also a member of the Rapid Technologies and Additive Manufacturing Community (RTAM), Direct Digital Manufacturing Tech Group and Rapid Tooling Tech Group of SME. His areas of interest are CAD and Additive Manufacturing (AM).

Dr Agrawal joined the Mechanical Engineering Department at JUET Guna as Associate Professor in July 2009. He was promoted to Professor in August 2016. He had been the head of the Mechanical Engineering Department during May 2014 and June 2017. He had also held the position of Controller of Examinations, JUET Guna, during May 01, 2017 to November 01, 2017.
