ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
The Department of Mechanical Engineering, being one of the oldest departments of the institute, provides its students effective teaching-learning process and state-of-the-art laboratories. The department offers B.Tech degree programme in Mechanical Engineering along with PG Programme (Industrial Safety Engineering). The curriculum is highly demanding and attracts exceptionally meritorious students from all parts of the country. The department is constantly striving to attain excellence in education, teaching, academic and industry oriented research as well as consultancy work with service to the society.
The department has established state of the art laboratories namely Materials Processing Laboratory, Advanced Machining & Measurement Laboratory and Machine Dynamics & Condition Monitoring Laboratory under Level 1 of the DST-FIST program (Fund for Improvement of S&T Infrastructure in Universities & Higher Educational Institutions). The department has been equipped with the research centers such as Centre for Composite Materials, Centre for Advanced Thermal Studies, Centre for Bio Composites, and Centre for Surface Engineering. The department is having funded research projects in the areas of optimization studies, composite materials, machining studies, supersonic flow, heat transfer and CO2 sequestration.
The department has modern laboratories and workshop facilities with ultra-modern sophisticated equipment to carry out research in all areas related to Mechanical, Thermal, Energy and Advanced Manufacturing Engineering. The department also welcomes students from other departments of the institute as a gesture of support to their time-to-time academic and research needs. Both undergraduate and postgraduate students of the department are well placed in leading industries as well as in the higher research level institutions of international recognition.
The department has active and vibrant students’ chapters of major professional bodies such as Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and National Safety Council (NSC) India. Here they get a world class platform for organizing, participating and developing engineering dreams. The department has also a dynamic coordinating section dedicated for student’s intellectual property rights and patents.
