MECHANICAL DEPARTMENT


The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in the academic year 2010-2011. The department plays a leading role in evolving an "Engineering Science" based curriculum. The faculty members are highly qualified and specialized in the fields of thermal engineering, industrial engineering, material science, design and manufacturing. The mechanical engineering students learn to tackle challenges and solve real problems through their individual knowledge.


Department Objectives

The department of Mechanical Engineering aims to produce the engineer's with the abilities:

  1. To design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
  2. To design a system, component to meet desired needs.
  3. To function on multi-disciplinary teams.
  4. To identify, formulates, and solves engineering problems.
  5. Understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
  6. To use the technique, skills, and modern engineering tools which are necessary for engineering practice, recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in lifelong learning.
