Department of Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical Engineering Department is the driving force behind many of our technological and industrial processes. The Department is rightly recognized as the mother of engineering. Mechanical engineers require a solid understanding of key concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, energy and manufacturing. The benefit of this fundamental role is that the subject provides a wide choice of career opportunities in industries as diverse as food, pharmaceuticals, energy, petro-chemical industries, and environmental protection and conservation. It is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines.
The department has well qualified faculty who produce numerous publications in International/National journals, highlighting the emphasis on research and development.
The Department has a modern workshop equipped with latest machinery in fitting and machine shops.
Mechanical Engineering is concerned with all types of machinery in industries and all aspects of their mechanism and functioning- the design, development, construction, production, installation, operation and maintenance.
Regular workshops training, industrial visits, specialized lectures and seminars are conducted to familiarize students with the working of machine tools found in industry. They are also given project problems covering design, fabrication, testing, manufacturing aspects thus giving them opportunities to develop their capability to solve practical problems through the use of computers.
The Department is committed to well being and all round development of its students and is to prepare the manpower that is globally best.
Major industries that employ mechanical engineers include Defense Services, DRDO, ISRO, Automobiles, space research, aeronautical, railways, energy and utilities, air conditioning, bio-mechanical industry. Other major employers include giant manufacturing plants, air conditioning and refrigeration industry, turbine manufacturing plants, oil and gas exploration and refining industries and the agricultural sector.
In the government sector like civil services, engineering services etc. Mechanical engineers can provide their knowledge to various government run projects in the role of technical experts and consultants. They can also work in private engineering companies that provide technical consultancy to both government and corporate firms.
