The Department of Mechanical Engineering started in the year 2002 with an intake of 60 students in B.Tech. The course offers a deep insight into the discipline and enables promising engineers to acquire skills required to succeed both individually as well as in the Industry. The department has achieved tremendous success in academics and in placements from the day of inception. These accomplishments have allowed the department to increase its intake to 240. The department offers two PG programs – thermal engineering and machine design – with intake of 24 in each.
The faculty of the department is well experienced with different professional backgrounds. The facilities available at the department made the faculty to pursue their careers in the areas of Intelligent Manufacturing, Nanotechnology, Artificial Neural Networks, CAD/CAM, and Composite Materials. The department also strengthened with experts in the fields of 3D printing, IC Engines, and Renewable Energy. The department has been recognised as a research center by an affiliating university, under which the faculty is engaged in quality research.
The department has good number of latest technological labs, which strengthen academics as well as research. The department has been active in organising project expos, guest lectures, seminars and conferences. The students of mechanical engineering are given professional training on the latest trends. The department has good placement record from recruiters such as TCS, Tech Mahindra, Power Mech, BlueRay Infra, Accurate Steel Forgings, Arihant DuraPlast, Woosu Automotives, Sutherland Global Services, and EIDER Motors.
