Mechanical Engineering

About the Department

The Department of Mechanical Engineering was started in the year 2009 to offer an undergraduate degree program. The Department has grown from strength to strength right from its inception. It currently has 18 well qualified, experienced and dedicated faculty members. Ten faculty members are intensively involved in research to pursue their doctoral degree. The Department provides a stimulating environment for research activities under the supervision of Professors who are Ph.D. holders from the prestigious institutions. The Department has established facilities to propagate emerging technologies by incorporating software for cutting-edge technologies in the field of Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing. The software available includes SOLIDWORKS, ANSYS, MATLAB, EdgeCAM, LABVIEW, and AUTOSIM.


To emerge as a centre to develop excellent Mechanical Engineering graduates with professional knowledge and comprehensive integrated personality.


To impart strong foundation of the subjects by integrating a variety of project experiences at every level throughout the curriculum.

To create expert engineers capable of providing solutions for practical issues with lateral thinking skills.

To make the students as lifelong learners with strong attitude in building their career using sound knowledge in core subjects.

From The HOD’s Desk

Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering. We started our journey in the year 2009. The primary focus of our curriculum is to impart technical know-how to students, promote their problem-solving skills and innovation of new technologies. The students are encouraged to undertake various research projects. Our department has a distinguished record in both teaching and research. A wide selection of projects, seminars and training facilities besides technical visits to industrial enterprises and specialized lectures from industry specialists generate enormous potential and confidence among the students enabling them to independently handle the life-size problems in their engineering careers. The faculty members of the department have organized National and International conferences, AICTE funded Faculty Development Programmes and number of National and International publications. The Department has well equipped laboratories for the students. Also, we provide value added courses such as AUTO CAD, Modeling using Solid Works, Pro-E, ANSYS, etc. for the knowledge enrichment of students.
