Mechanical Engineering


The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in the year 1998. The department offers four year Bachelor of Engineering programme with an annual intake of 60 students. The programme was accredited by the National Board of Accreditation NBA, New Delhi in the year 2008 for five years, followed by three years in 2016 and 2019. The Department of Mechanical Engineering has a long history of success and consistently offers lucrative employment opportunities across industries in India and abroad, regardless of economic downturns. Mechanical engineers have made numerous contributions to the world's leading industries, including the aerospace, automotive, nuclear, defence, structural, chemical, and energy sectors. The course assists in the development of knowledge and technical skills in the areas of general mechanical engineering including industrial engineering, design engineering, production engineering, thermal and management sciences, functional areas of management, information systems, and computer integrated manufacturing apart from the basic engineering knowledge and skills. Industry oriented curriculum provides an exciting learning environment to the students and encourage them to develop their intellectual, practical and social skills comprehensively.
