Mechanical Engineering

Department of Mechanical Engineering


Mechanical Engineering is the application of the principles of physics in the analysis, design, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems. Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest and most versatile of the engineering professions. Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in the year 1998 and was accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA).
The department comprises of major areas viz. Thermal Engineering, Design & Dynamics, and Manufacturing Engineering. The specializations of faculty members cover all major areas of Mechanical Engineering. The department has adequate faculty members, most of them having pursued/ pursuing their Ph.D.
The department also organizes several training programmes, workshops and seminars for staffs and students every year. The department has 7 Clubs/ Associations to invoke interest and create awareness among students in different fields of Mechanical engineering. Value added programmes in NDT, CATIA, ANSYS, CFD etc. are conducted every semester.


To produce world class mechanical engineering graduates by promoting core technical competency blended with advanced computing skills, creative thinking and desire to upgrade continuously, so as to empower them to the expectation of the industries in our country and abroad and also to impart the interpersonal skills and make them realize the values of life.


The department aspires to produce academic leaders in mechanical engineering with moral values and desires to set up centers of excellence in innovative design and testing, composite materials, automation, automotive technology and green fuels.
