Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineers require a solid understanding of key concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, energy and manufacturing. They use these principles in the design and analysis of automobiles, aircraft, heating and cooling systems, buildings and bridges, industrial equipment & machinery, and many more.

 

Academics: The 2 years ITI(Fitter, Turner & Machinest), 3 years Diploma & 4 years B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering is a comprehensive program. The goal of the mechanical engineering curriculum is to create a flexible undergraduate educational experience in design, mathematics, modeling, computing, management, engineering science, humanities, social sciences and fine arts. Principal study topics include fluid mechanics, thermodynamics & heat transfer, solid mechanics, materials engineering, manufacturing, energy systems, dynamics & control Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) and others. This broad and flexible program allows students to customize their programs to meet their objectives and particular career goals. Traditional students can prepare for technological careers in industry, graduate school or management. The more interdisciplinary students can utilize this program as a launching pad for professional careers in business or public service.

Cutting-edge Workshop & Laboratories facilities

The Department of Mechanical Engineering has over 7 Workshop like Carpentry, Welding, Tin Smity, Black Smity, Fitting, Plumbing & Machine & 15 laboratories including Manufacturing Process, Foundry, Thermal engineering, Heat & Mass Transfer, Dynamics, Metallurgy, Metrology, Fuels, & Fluid Mechanics, Strengths of Materials, Solid Mechanics, Machining of Machine Tools, Refrigeration & Control, IC Engine etc.

Modern computing facilities are available for students at the Computer Aided Design and Computer Integrated Manufacturing Laboratories.

Faculty Members:

The department has a team of highly qualified and experienced faculty. Research activities at the department are progressing in the areas of feature based design, assembly planning, optimization/analysis of mechanical systems, alternate fuels for IC engines, air pollution modeling, thermal energy storage, circulating fluidized bed technology, sheet metal forming and materials technology. About 50 research papers have been published in various international and national conferences/journals in the last few years. Three books from the department have also been published. A proposal to set up an "Alternative Energy Research Center" in association with Queen's University, Canada is at an advanced stage.
