Mechanical Engineering

History

The Department of Mechanical Engineering and its faculty members make every effort to achieve the college's vision of "Holistic and Value Based Professional Education" by adapting modern training methodologies. The Department has the ideal blend of faculty with rich industrial experience from BHEL, State Government Departments and Younger Post Graduates and Ph.D.'s with innovative ideas. The laboratories are fully supported by 5 Master Technicians who are experts in their respective grade and impart hands-on training to the student's community.The Department was started in the year 2010 and the first batch was rolled out from the college in the year 2010.

Mechanical engineering is a diverse subject that derives its breadth from the need to design and manufacture everything from small individual parts and devices (e.g., micro scale sensors and inkjet printer nozzles) to large systems (e.g., spacecraft and machine tools). The role of a mechanical engineer is to take a product from an idea to the marketplace. In order to accomplish this, a broad range of skills are needed. The mechanical engineer needs to acquire particular skills and knowledge. He/she needs to understand the forces and the thermal environment that a product, its parts, or its subsystems will encounter; to design them for functionality, aesthetics, and the ability to withstand the forces and the thermal environment they will be subjected to; and to determine the best way to manufacture them and ensure they will operate without failure. Perhaps the one skill that is the mechanical engineer's exclusive domain is the ability to analyze and design objects and systems with motion.
