Department of Mechanical Engineering

About the Department

Mechanical engineering is the oldest branch of engineering that has found innumerable applications since prehistoric times .Today as we embark on new technological developments, the field of mechanical engineering has widened tremendously to include Nano Materials & Technology, Renewable Energy, Computer Aided Design and Advance Manufacturing, Robotics, Mechatronics and Industrial Engineering besides conventional core areas.

 Mechanical engineers-The Designer of world use principles of science along with tools like computer-aided engineering and product life-cycle management to design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices. Mechanical engineering has wide spectrum of application in automobile engineering, aerospace engineering, metallurgical engineering, marine engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, petroleum engineering, and chemical engineering.

Automobile Engineering as specialized program of mechanical engineering deals with the study of Automotive-drawing, design and manufacturing of automobile and their respective subsystem. Automobile engineers incorporates elements of mechanical, electrical, electronic, software and safety engineering in manufacturing, assembling and operation of automotive vehicles.

India is a home to many Indian and International well established automobile companies. They offer excellent jobs opportunities to develop a career in automobile industry and this in turn creates a strong demands for automobile engineers.

The department came into existence in 1998. The department has highly dedicated, competent and experienced faculty having expertise in different areas like thermal engineering, CFD, metal forming, composite material, CAD, CAM and Tribology. The department has come out with many outstanding research projects both at M.Tech. and Ph.D. level in the field of Mechanical Engineering. The department also has the state of the art advanced lab facility such as Flexible Manufacturing system (FMS), Electric Discharge Machining (EDM) equipment.

The department has an active student’s college club of Society of Automotive Engineering (SAE). Through the club, students participate and organize guest lectures, technical and model making competition, training and workshop.

The department has developed a light weight palky for hills of Uttarakhand under Uttarakhand state Council for Science and Technology (UCOST). Department has also developed a special purpose machine for industry for profile cutting of pipes.
