Mechanical Engineering is the art and science of designing, development and control of systems and components such as fluid mechanics, material science, thermodynamics, kinematics, etc. Mechanical engineers use these core concepts paired with tools like computer-aided design (CAD), and product lifecycle management to design, analyze and manufacturing equipments. Aim of the course is to nurture the students and transform them into capable engineers, with high employability prospects in the potential market.
Mechanical engineering is one of the largest, broadest, and oldest engineering disciplines. Mechanical engineers use the principles of energy, materials, and mechanics to design and manufacture machines and devices of all types. They create the processes and systems that drive technology and industry. The key characteristics of the profession are its breadth, flexibility, and individuality. The career paths of mechanical engineers are largely determined by individual choices, a decided advantage in a changing world.
It is a 4 years long Undergraduate level degree program. The 4 years duration is divided into 8 semesters, each semester lasting for a period of 6 months. During different semesters, students will have to face separate sets of theoretical subjects as well as practical lab sessions and workshops. Workshops form an integral part of B.E./B.Tech. Mechanical Engineering program, which helps students gain hands on experience. In simple terms, Mechanical Engineering program revolves around concepts such as designing, manufacturing and working of machines and tools, parts of machines and their design, concepts of physics etc. As a result, students will come across subjects focusing on machines.
The student will study two basic modules of Mechanical Engineering which are Workshop Technology and Basic of Mechanical Engineering. It covers the study of plant layout, basic tools and machinery used in industrial environment, industrial safety, different engineering materials, various manufacturing process namely casting processes, mechanical working processes (cold and hot metal work), joining processes (welding, brazing and soldering). The main objective of this course is to create an ideal reference for undergraduate engineers to make them understand the deep insight of the manufacturing industrial environment. The undergraduate students will be able to acquire the knowledge of boilers, steam nozzles, condenser, thermal power plant turbines, pumps, hydraulics machines, stress and strains and utilization of energy during the energy conversion process. These contents will be helpful in understanding others subjects of engineering.
In this year the students will study conceptual modules of Mechanical Engineering which are Thermodynamics, Engineering Mechanics, Computer Aided Design, Strength of Materials, Fluid Mechanics, Steam power generation, Manufacturing Technology-1, Material Science. These modules will provide reference knowledge for three pyramids of Mechanical Engineering i.e Structure, Hydraulics and Thermal.
Students will be able to acquire knowledge of energy conversion with the steam turbines, steam nozzles, condensers, and steam thermal power plants, and their applications in the generation of electrical energy from mechanical energy and drawbacks of steam thermal power plant as compared to other thermal power plant/any other power plants.It familiarizes with the working of air compressor and pumps, their utilization in our daily life. This study will help to develop the skill in engineers for understanding the comprehensive manufacturing knowledge, design parameters and production criteria for the development of useful products.
In this year there is practical exposure of different labs like Computer Aided Design lab, Material Science lab, Engineering Mechanics lab, Kinematics of Machine lab. After 2nd year there is a provision of 4 weeks industrial training in which student can do the training in any industry.
In this year the student will study application modules of Mechanical Engineering which are Internal Combustion Engine, Dynamics of Machine, Heat Transfer, Machine Design, Control System, Automobile Engineering and Industrial Engineering. The objective of theory of machines is to give students an understanding of the kinematics and dynamics of rigid bodies in general planar motion, which is typically encountered in design and analysis of mechanical systems, and an elementary understanding of the vibration of mechanical systems. Internal combustion engines and gas turbines give ability to use the relevant calculation techniques for the construction and development of engine and gas turbine performances. Mechanical Design can lead to the formation of the entirely new machine or it can lead to improvement of the existing machine.
After 3rd year there is a provision of 4 weeks industrial training in which student can do the training in any industry.
In this year the student will study industry modules of Mechanical Engineering which are Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, Power Plant Engineering, Strength of Materials-II, Mechanical Vibration and Computer Integrated Manufacturing. Refrigeration and Air Conditioning course consists of different refrigeration cycles and understanding of psychometric and psychometric processes used for the purpose of air- conditioning. Large amount of power is generated using prime movers in a site or layout called power plants, where all the equipments and machinery required for power generation is located. To use computers in the area of manufacturing to reduce manual processing and linking computers to all the manufacturing machines and increase the productivity, reduce the unnecessary costs. To study about group technology, computer aided process planning, material requirement planning (MRP) Enterprise resource planning (ERP), Computer aided quality control and Flexible manufacturing systems, Artificial intelligence and Expert systems.
Apart from this in the 8th semester there is provision of 4 months training/project. The students are required to undergo industrial training or institutional project work for a duration not less than 4 months in a reputed organization or concerned institute.
We use a variety of teaching methods, ranging from lectures and group tutorials to small groups in laboratories. Students are encouraged to use additional recommended reading material for study to consolidate the formal learning process, and to broaden and deepen their understanding.

Students have to prepare a working project in a group of 3-4 members. Assessment will be done on the basis of their synopsis, project execution, presentation and report, details of which will be provided by the project guide. For any help in regards to study the student can approach the subject faculty, who will be available as per schedule/ time table and on working Saturdays.
Mechanical Engineering is a core and evergreen branch. Almost all core industries and manufacturing units make use of machines. Thus, for functioning and maintenance of machines, qualified mechanical engineers are needed by such industries.
There are ample amount of job opportunities for B.E./B.Tech. Mechanical Engineering graduates in Government as well as private sector. When it comes to government sector, organizations and departments like- Indian Railways, DRDO, Indian Armed Forces, BHEL, PWD, NHAI, State Wise Road Transport Boards etc recruit Mechanical Engineers. Private sector offers even more job opportunities.
Small, medium and large scale manufacturing units hire large number of Mechanical Engineers to function efficiently. Automobile firms also recruit qualified Mechanical Engineering graduates. Starting salary (depends on different factors) is generally between 2-4.5 lakh rupees per year, for graduates who after completing M.Tech program, can take up teaching job also. By pursuing PhD program, one may also take up a job in the Research and Development sector.
