Mechanical Engineering is the mother of all branches. The contribution of this branch is enormous in the growth of technology over the centuries. The scope of the course varies from material research to machinery development, Nano Technology, Smart materials, Aerospace Technology, Missiles technology, CAD/CAM, FMS, CIM, Automation and such other interrelated developments. The job opportunities are in aero space, Automotive and Manufacturing sectors apart from research establishments. Many firms developing software packages for mechanical components and products are also recruiting the mechanical engineers.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering has been in existence since 2013 with a sanctioned intake of 60. The faculty members have received advanced degrees like M.E and M.Tech from reputed institutions and have a very good academic and research experience. The skills needed for this course are strong computational mathematics, creativity and analytical abilities. The areas of study includes Manufacturing processes, Mechanical vibrations, Mechatronics, Heat and Mass Transfer, Tool Engineering and Design, Design of machine elements, Computer Integrated Manufacturing and Robotics.
The department is enriched with good infrastructure and latest heavy engineering machinery to cadre to the need of the hour and prepare the students for better tomorrow. The department as a team feels that there is a great need for inculcating the spirit of devotion, dedication and above all innovation among the students. The department pledges to bridge the gap between the new technologies and the learning brains of the students.
VISION, MISSION AND OBJECTIVES
Graduates of BE program in Mechanical Engineering will be able to:
- To model, analyze, design and realize physical systems, components or process by applying principles of thermal engineering, machine design, Mechatronics and Control Engineering.
- To work professionally in industries or as an entrepreneur by applying manufacturing and management practices.
- Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
- Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
