Introduction

Mechanical Engineering applies basic scientific principles to the design, manufacture, operation and maintenance of all forms of mechanical devices, as well as to the management of human and material resources necessary for these activities. Courses are therefore offered to impart sound knowledge to students on the art of application of the related principles.

Philosophy 

The first four of a total training period of five years (for bachelor’s degree) are devoted to advanced studies in basic science and fundamental engineering concepts such as engineering drawing, mechanics, thermo-fluids sciences, materials science, electrical engineering, workshop technology and manufacturing science. Design, a central activity in mechanical engineering, features prominently in these years; so also are the necessary tools of mathematics, numerical methods and computing.

Furthermore, an equivalent of one year industrial work experience spread over the four years, is provided in this period to develop professionalism and adaptability towards industrial life.

In the 5th year, more advanced courses are offered in applied mechanics, thermo-fluids sciences and control engineering.  In addition, at this stage are consolidated the principles of scientific control and the use of human and material resources. Thus, apart from  engineering economics which is taught in the 3rd year, elements of industrial engineering and management are offered in the 5th year. Also, an in-depth study of some aspects of mechanical engineering, in the form of a final year experimental and/or theoretical project, is undertaken by each student in the fifth year.

Objectives

 On successful completion of the programme the graduate shall be able to -

1. Prepare and read engineering drawings;

2. Design, manufacture and assemble engineering components and systems;

3. Solve Engineering problems by analysis and Calculations

4. Install, operate, maintain and service plant machinery, tools and equipment; and

5. Apply management principles to solve management and organisational problems related to any Engineering set up.

Career Opportunities:

By virtue of his training, the graduate Mechanical engineer has a wide range of job opportunities in the following areas:

1) Automotive Industry

2) Steel Industry

3) Manufacturing Industry 

4) Petroleum Industry

5) Mechanical Farms

6) Powers Generation 

7) Aircraft Industry

8) Construction Industry

9) Air-conditioning and Refrigeration

10) Research Organisations 

11) Technical Sales

12) Engineering Consultancy

The Department also offer  post graduate programmes leading to the award of Master of Technology (M.TECH) and Doctor of philosophy (Ph.D) degrees with specializations in Thermo-Fluid Engineering, Applied Mechanics/ Design, and production Engineering.
