Department Home

The Department of Mechanical Engineering started in the year 1997.The Mechanical Lab is equipped with CAD/CAM lab with DELL-990-380 workstations, all Core-i3 based computers. Mechanical Engineering graduates have wide employment opportunities in manufacturing industries, power sectors, process plants and R & D organizations and software industries. Interested graduates can pursue higher studies in convenient discipline such as Machine Design and Analysis, Industrial Design, Thermal Engineering, Manufacturing Sciences, Industrial Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Energy studies and Information Technology etc. On successful completion of under graduate courses one can be absorbed in reputed organizations or Academic Institutions. The four year B.Tech courses include Energy Conversion and Power Systems, Heat Transfer and Fluid Mechanics, Mechanics of Solids and Stress Analysis, Manufacturing Science, Industrial Engineering, Automatic Controls and Engineering Design. Laboratory experience is considered to be an important part of the mechanical engineering programme. Mechanical workshop has various types of lathes (HMT, NC, CNC), Milling (HMT), Drilling, shaping, grinding machines, etc. The welding shop consists of gas welding, arc welding and TIG & MIG welding equipments. The material testing lab is equipped with universal testing machine, hardness testing machine.

Mechanical Engineering students of this Institute get ample scope of acquiring the desired practical training through regular industrial visits. The students are assigned practical problems in collaboration with nearby industries for their project work in the final year level. It is thus expected that the Mechanical Engineering Graduates passing out from this Institute will have self-confidence and right bent of mind to compete for the jobs in State/Central Govt. concerns. Incidentally, most of the passed out Mechanical Engineering Students have found employment in state/central Govt. undertakings, Public Sectors, Defence Services and reputed private sectors like SEW,RGB E-design, NECO Jaiswal pvt.,IMFA,FACOR,ACC,OCL STEEL,PPL, TISCO, L&T, OCL, Reliance Industries, TCS, Infosys, PCS, WIPRO etc.
