Mechanical Engineering, is perhaps the most diverse and versatile of the engineering disciplines. In addition to physics and mathematics, it encompasses key elements of aerospace, electrical, civil, chemical and even materials science and bio-engineering. Mechanical engineering touches virtually every aspect of modern life, from mobile phones and biomedical devices, to aircrafts and power plants. Not only engineering, mechanical engineers deal with economic issues, from the cost of a single component, to the economic impact of a manufacturing plant. Besides this, mechanical engineers can also be found in sales, engineering management, and corporate management. Versatility is another unique advantage in a world that is undergoing constant economic, political, industrial, and social change. Mechanical engineers are educated and positioned, not only to adapt, but to define and direct change.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering was started in the year 2012 with a B. Tech. program in Mechanical Engineering with an intake of 60, the intake was increased to 120 in the year 2013. The department has competent and committed faculty members drawn from industry, practicing professionals and academicians to enhance the delivery of academic programs. The department has evolved a comprehensive student-centric learning approach, designed to add significant value to the learner’s understanding in an integrated manner through workshops, lab sessions, assignments, training, seminars, projects, and independent study. The hands-on training offered by our CAD/CAM and CAE laboratory in latest design and analysis software brings in a formal method of familiarizing with the industrial practices helps the students to apply their classroom knowledge to live industrial problems.
