Mechanical engineering is a discipline of engineering that applies the principles of physics and materials science for analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is the branch of engineering that involves the production and usage of heat and mechanical power for the design, production, and operation of machines and tools. It is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines.
The engineering field requires an understanding of core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, materials science, and structural analysis. Mechanical engineers use these core principles along with tools like computer-aided engineering and product lifecycle management to design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices and more.
Mechanical engineers today are pursuing developments in fields such as composites, mechatronics, biomedical and nano technology.
Like other career paths, entry into this particular branch of engineering also requires certain basic traits. First and foremost, you must have a penchant for mechanical components and machinery and how these machines work. You must be good at physics, chemistry and mathematics. You must also have skills such as an analytical bent of mind, logical reasoning and problem solving
Mechanical Engineers are required in all manufacturing facilities. In a broader sense it can be said that mechanical engineer works on design and control of a system that goes into the process of manufacturing the machinery and product. He tests new systems for feasibility and efficiency and carries out quality management and improvement process.
There is tremendous scope for mechanical engineers in automobile engineering, cement industry, steel, power sector, hydraulics, manufacturing plants, drilling and mining industry, petroleum, aeronautical, biotechnology and many more. Nowadays they are also increasingly needed in the environmental and bio-medical fields.
A beginner in Mechanical Engineering can opt for various job openings such as: Maintenance Engineer, safety Engineer, Quality Assurance, CNC Programmer, Jr. Engineer, Design Engineer, CAD/CAM Trainer, Production Supervisor/Engineer, R&D Trainee etc.
Established in 2001, the department offers B. Tech. in Mechanical Engineering, Automobile Engineering and M.Tech. Mechanical Engineering with specialization in (i) Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) (ii) Advanced Manufacturing Techniques (AMT). The department also offers PhD in major thrust areas viz. Design & Dynamics and Production Engineering. The department has highly qualified faculty members, state of art laboratories and infrastructures. The laboratory facilities and the infrastructure are regularly upgraded and are well supported by the institute. Over the years, interaction with industry and the emphasis on applied engineering has increased. Students of the department are actively involved in various extracurricular activities and social activities. A group of students are participating in a national SAE BAJA competition, ROBOCON and Aero modelling and won remarkable prizes. Group of students are actively participated in Ganpat VolunTeacher Movement. Weofferfundamentaltheoryandpracticalbasedcurriculum.
