Department of Mechanical Engineering Intake Capacity: 180


The department was set up in 2007. Now, it has graduated to offer M.Tech. Programme in thermal engineering relevant to the context of industry in the present scenario. As a core branch the department grows in rhythm of the needs and demands of the global industries. In recognition of progress and excellence in teaching, research and infrastructure achieved by the department, the under graduate programmme has obtained the reorganization from AICTE in 2007.The Mechanical Engineering is a creative discipline that draws upon a number of basic and applied sciences to design, build, and optimize the devices, machines, processes, and systems that involve mechanical forces, work and energy. It is one of the most diverse fields of engineering influencing almost all puppets of our life. In the light of recent modern technologies, the job description of mechanical engineers has changed substantially.

Mechanical engineering is amongst one of the early branches of engineering started in the institute. The department was established in the year 2007 with approval of AICTE for B. Tech. program with intake strength of 60 students. Looking into the rapid growth of infrastructure in the department, the student intake has been increased to 180. The M. Tech. program (Thermal engineering specialization) with intake strength of 18 students was introduced in 2012-13 academic session.

We aim at quality teaching so as to stimulate intellectual curiosity, creativity and innovativeness of the students. With a dedicated team consisting of highly qualified and experienced faculty members in all streams of mechanical engineering, the department aims at providing education and research of world-class level. The department is broadly divided into three academic groups: Design engineering, Production engineering and Thermal engineering. The department has an excellent placement record and many of our alumni are holding top positions in government and private sectors.
