Mechanical Engineering is perhaps the most diverse and versatile of the engineering disciplines. In addition to physics and mathematics, it encompasses key elements of aerospace, electrical, civil, chemical, materials science and bio-engineering. Mechanical engineering touches virtually every aspect of modern life, from mobile phones and biomedical devices to aircrafts and power plants. Mechanical engineers deal not only with engineering aspects, but also with economic issues, from the cost of a single component, to the economic impact of a manufacturing plant. Besides this, mechanical engineers can also be found in sales, engineering management, and corporate management. Versatility is another unique advantage in a world that is undergoing constant economic, political, industrial, and social change. Mechanical engineers are educated and positioned, not only to adapt, but to define and direct change.
At the department of mechanical engineering students are educated not only by teaching and learning but also through the real time projects from industries, real time case studies from experts of reputed industries. Students are involved in R & D projects of the department.
The Mechanical Engineering students are securing ranks at university level almost every year. Students are deputed to be part of national international conferences. As part of co-curricular activities students of the department are visiting automotive, aerospace, machine tool and other allied mechanical engineering industries in India and abroad like China, Germany etc.
