Mechanical Engineering

The goal of the Mechanical Engineering curriculum is to create a flexible undergraduate educational experience in Design, Mathematics, Modeling, computation, Quality management, Engineering science & humanities. Principal study topics of Mechanical Engineering includes Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics & Heat Transfer, Solid Mechanics, Materials Engineering, Manufacturing Technology, Energy systems, Dynamics & Control, Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) and others. These broad and flexible programs allow students to customize their B.Tech programs to meet their objectives and particular career goals like higher education and placement. Traditional students can prepare for technological careers in small scale industries, graduate school or management. The more interdisciplinary students can utilize this program as a launching pad for various core professional careers/placement in Ashok Leyland, Essar Steels, General Motors, John Deere, Kennametal, Larsen and Turbo etc or public service.

The Mechanical Department is well equipped with excellent laboratories to make the students to easily understand and study the latest research areas such as computational fluid dynamics, Mechanics of Robot, Aerospace and Defense field, etc and also has separate Department library houses best books in the technical field this vast reservoir of knowledge is a source of constant value addition to the students and faculty members the library’s rich in manufacturing, design, metallurgy, drawing and materials science. To enhance the Technical Skills of the students, the Department also organizes various program such Value-added course, Quiz completion, Seminars, Workshops, Industrial visit and Guest lecturers which would make them globally competitive as well as students become an indispensible Engineer and earn the income they deserve.

Better interaction between Technical institutions and industry is the need of the hour. This will have great bearing on the Engineering Curriculum, exposure of industrial atmosphere to engineering students and subsequent placement of young graduating engineers in industries across the country. With the advent of globalization and opening up of Indian economy to outside world, competition among industries has become stiff.

To solve their engineering problems they look up now to engineering Institutions. Similarly, there is an urgent need to prepare engineering students for jobs in multinational companies, by exposing them to newer technologies and engineering methodologies. These objectives can only be achieved well by bridging the gap between industry and the academic institute.

To Promote Industry – Institute Interaction Following Schemes Are Being Undertaken

• Arranging in-plant training, industrial visit, expert lectures based on the requirements.

• Facilitating the Faculty members to visit the industries and get exposure on industrial practices.

• To assist the Departments in organizing workshops, conferences and symposium in collaboration with industries and take up industry supported mini projects and projects.

• Facilitate the faculty members to involve in consultancy activities.

• To create ‘Centre for Excellence’ and R&D Laboratories with the support of Industries.

• Arranging for MoUs between the institute and industries.

• Arranging for students training on latest technologies and also on soft skills and inviting the industries for campus recruitment.
