Mechanical Engineering is the branch of engineering that is generally concerned with understanding forces and motion and their application to solving problems of interest to society. The field includes aspects of thermodynamics, fluid and solid mechanics, mechanisms, materials and energy conversion and transfer and involves the application of physics, mathematics, chemistry and increasingly, biology and computer science. Importantly, the field also emphasizes the process of formulation, design, optimization, manufacture and control of new systems and devices.

Message from Head of Department, Mechanical Engineering

The above video depicts the working of a CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machine. The Department of Mechanical Engineering is committed to support the students encouraging them with every facility possible. This rigor of the department towards new and upcoming technologies has led to the adaptation and incorporation of these technologies as part of the curriculum which is not even mandated by the University. Various such equipment are procured by the Department and are available for Under Graduate and Post Graduate students at their disposal.

Vision

To establish a department of excellence in Mechanical Engineering encompassing design, manufacturing, and thermal sciences by providing high-quality education through teaching-learning process and research to meet the technological challenges.

Mission

To educate and prepare undergraduate students with theoretical and practical skills required for the successful career in mechanical and allied discipline with ethics and respect to the environment.
