Being one of the most sought after branch of Engineering, Mechanical engineering forms the foundation for other disciplines of engineering. Keeping the view the world wide popularity of this branch and its obviously perceptible applicability is in other spheres for acquainting the latest developments.
The broad range of career paths for mechanical engineers includes almost every part of industry or business including: automotive, aerospace and defense industries.
Mechanical Engineering is the largest of the engineering disciplines and a large number of mechanical engineers go into manufacturing of computer and electronic products, machinery and transportation equipments.
The department cares for student support, mentoring, tutoring, study skills workshops and career development. Mechanical Engineering students culminate their studies with a year-long capstone project requiring design problem solving, creative thinking, project planning and teamwork. A broad selection of technical electives encourages students to pursue special interests in design and manufacturing, energy and environmental issues, thermal and fluid sciences materials, dynamics & controls and robotics.
The department has a team of highly qualified, dedicated and experienced faculty in order to contribute to the technical education as a whole and helps mold young engineers by igniting in their minds the flame of inquisitiveness. Our faculty regularly participates and publishes their research papers in conferences/ seminars and also attends workshops during summer/ winter vacations. The department organizes national and international conferences to share their knowledge obtained through research with other researchers in India and abroad.
