The Department of Mechanical Engineering was started in the year 1994. The department offers B. Tech. program in Mechanical Engineering, M. Tech. programs in Engineering Design, Manufacturing Engineering, Automotive Engineering and Automotive Systems with Ph. D. program in all the specializations.

At present, the department intake capacity is 180 students per year at the B. Tech. level and 30 students each in the M. Tech. programs. The department has competent and committed faculty members drawn from industry, practicing professionals and academicians to enhance the delivery of academic programs. There are about 52 teaching faculty members in the department. Most of them have at least 15 years of experience.

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 laboratory in latest design and analysis softwares bring in a formal method of familiarizing with the industrial practices helps the students to apply their class room knowledge to live industrial problems. The department is equipped with ten laboratories, nine workshops and seven research laboratories. The laboratories and computing facilities are made available to the students and staff until late night and on all working days.

Vision

To transform our students into outstanding mechanical engineers with strong domain knowledge and skills, society-centric research intent, and exemplary ethical values, making them the most desired professionals by research institutions, industry, and society.

Mission

  • To develop in each student, a profound understanding of fundamentals, motivation for continuous learning, and practical problem-solving skills for building a successful career.
  • To create and share technical knowledge and collaborate with Industry and Institutions for the betterment of Society.
  • To imbibe ethical values, leadership skills and entrepreneurial skills in students.
  • To sustain a conducive environment to involve students and faculty in research and development.
