Mechanical Engineering is the mother of all branches of engineering. Contributions by this branch are enormous in the growth of technology over the centuries. Scope of the course varies from material research to product development. Skills needed for this course are strong computational mathematics, creativity and analytical abilities. 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. Excellent laboratory facilities, modern computer clusters, systematically designed curriculum and dedicated faculty members make this department a dynamic place to study. Graduates from the Department of Mechanical Engineering are highly-employable and sought after by many prestigious companies.
The course has a widely practical element based on lecture modules, including laboratory work, team projects and industrial tours and seminars. In addition, all students complete a technical project in their final year. The technical project gives an opportunity to apply engineering skills to real-world problems. The curriculum is designed so that high-caliber Mechanical Engineering candidates graduate with superior technical skills required in both industry and research. Some Department areas specialize in Modeling and Analysis, Robotics & CAD/CAM, Design and Manufacturing, Thermal and Power Engineering, Engineering Management, Shock Waves & Applications and Supply Chain Management.
The Department has offered a four-year degree program in Mechanical Engineering since the academic year of 2007 - 2008 which had a student enrollment of 60. After its inception in 2002, it functioned as a supporting department to meet the needs of students of other disciplines and offered courses such as Mechanical Engineering Sciences as well as Engineering Drawing and Workshop Practice for all branches of the B.Tech degree program.
The Department offers B.Tech program in Mechanical Engineering as well as a M.Tech degree program in Thermal Sciences and Energy Systems.
A Mechanical Engineering Forum exits to promote the total development of the student. The forum organizes talks given by expert lecturers, industrial visits, career guidance programs, student talent search programs, technical film screenings, quiz programs, project exhibitions and more. All M.E students are members of the forum and benefit from the activities.
State-of-the-art laboratories include CAD/CAM lab, Material Testing & Metallurgy lab, Fluid Mechanics & Fluid Machinery lab, Thermal Engineering Lab, Foundry lab, Machine Dynamics Lab and Metrology Lab.
