Mechanical engineering is the specialisation that encompasses its application throughout all fields- be it light or heavy engineering, metal or mining industry, agriculture or medical application, petro-chemical and ocean engineering, transportation or aerospace. Our vision is to infuse both theoretical knowledge with intense application/ industry orientation – be it in classroom, laboratories or actual industry.

The faculty members here have been drawn out from all environments like academic, research, and industry. Some of them are enormously experienced in all these areas and thus are constant model-guide to the students. Research activities in collaboration with NIT, ISM, and National Laboratories are also conducted by the department.

Programme Education Objective

  • Prepare the students with strong fundamental knowledge in Mathematics, Science, English and Engineering Sciences so as to enable them to analyse the Mechanical Engineering related problems with requisite core competencies and professionalism.
  • Help them acquire technical knowledge in the subjects and technical skills in classical software packages, applying the same for design, fabricate and install the machines and to work in all related fields of engineering in different industrial environments and multidisciplinary setting involving continuous learning, research and development with high moral and ethical values.

Career Opportunities

Mechanical Engineering is one of the core branches of engineering that always has an undying importance and it will continue for generations.
