The Department of Mechanical Engineering, is one of the co-branches in the institute, possesses excellent infra-structural facilities, caters to all needs of different platforms of industries. A study of Mechanical Engineering imbibes the student with knowledge in modern methods of design, production, analysis, quality control, optimization and management of resources. After successful completion of study, these engineers will possess competent holds in specialized areas such as Machine Design, Machine Tool Design, Thermal Engineering, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning, Production Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Management. Through the state of the art CAD/CAM facility, students are also exposed to the latest Design, Analysis and Simulation software.
The department has excellent laboratories for conducting experiments by under graduate and postgraduate students. The various laboratories are :
Applied Mechanics Lab.
Strength of Materials Lab.
Dynamics of Machines Lab.
Experimental Machines Lab.
Fluid Mechanics Lab.
IC Engines Lab.
Boilers and Steam Engines Lab.
Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Lab.
In addition to the above, facilities are also being developed in the following fields :
Machine Tool Technology.
The main workshop comprises of the following fully equipped shops :
Pattern making Shop.
The workshop imparts training to all the students of the second, third and fourth years in the Mechanical Engineering discipline. The third year students are given projects involving work in the shops and the fourth year students undergo specialized training in manufacturing processes. The final year in all disciplines utilize the facilities of the workshop in connection with their projects and dissertations. Facilities exist for manufacture of components, parts and repair jobs.
