Department of Mechanical Engineering was started in 1979 to impart mechanical skills of highest quality to the blooming engineers. The department undertakes a powerful multi-step teaching process that threads together the latent expertise and the talents of the students and weaves out the finest mechanical engineers.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering, established in 1979,is one of the oldest and finest departments. The strength of the department lies in its highly qualified and expert faculty besides its excellent non-teaching staff. To complement this is the presence of the diligent students who epitomize enthusiasm and devotion. Thus, it has been a firm resolve to keep up with the modern day trends and in the process produce erudite and conscientious engineers. The department offers both undergraduate and post graduate courses.

Bachelor of Engineering degree:
The undergraduate course aims at providing the fecund brains with rudimentary knowledge. Instructions are imparted in the areas of energy conversion, refrigeration, design of mechanical components and systems, production engineering, management techniques, computer programming, numerical analysis and Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing (CAD/CAM). Design and fabrication projects are also undertaken as part of the curriculum.

Master of Technology (M.Tech in Machine Design):
Starting in the academic year 2003-04 the department is offering M Tech. degree in machine design, with a minimum intake of 18 students every year. The program is aimed at translating theoretical knowledge to practical applications and developing strong linkage with research institutions and industrial R & D units. Under the able guidance of our faculty and visiting faculty from such prestigious institutions like the IISc. and NAL, the department endeavors to realize the potential of tomorrows design engineers.

Mechanical Engineering Association (Student Body):
The departing believes in creating a conducive environment for the faculty and students to work in.With this objective in mind, the Mechanical Engineering Association has been floated for greater student- faculty interaction. It is also a platform for industrial exposure through technical events, industrial visits and seminars. The association also has a library with 200 latest books.
