Tarit Bose is a retired professor of aerospace engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT-M), India. He retired in 1998 after 27 years of teaching "Thermodynamics", "Aircraft Propulsion", "CFD and Plasma Dynamics". During his time at IIT-M; Tarit supervised 16 masters level candidates and 10 doctoral candidates.
Tarit received his Diploma in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Munich, West Germany in 1960. He received his Doctorate in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Stuttgart, West Germany in 1965. Tarit worked for NASA-NRC as a resident research associate in the heat transfer group, propulsion research and advanced concepts section of Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Pasadena from June 1968 through May 1970. Prior to JPL Tarit was a research fellow at the University of Minnesota heat transfer laboratory.
In 1998 Tarit joined Metacomp Technologies, Agoura Hills, CA as a research scientist. He has since retired and is pursuing personal projects.
