Mechanical Engineers require a solid understanding of key concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, energy and manufacturing. They use these principles in the design and analysis of automobiles, aircraft, heating and cooling systems, buildings and bridges, industrial equipments machinery, and many more./p>
The B. Tech. in Mechanical Engineering is a comprehensive degree program. The goal of the curriculum is to create a ¬flexible undergraduate educational experience in design, mathematics, modeling, computing, management, engineering science, humanities, social sciences and fine arts. Principal study topics include fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and heat transfer, solid mechanics, materials engineering, manufacturing, energy systems, dynamics and control, Computer Aided Design (CAD), and Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM).
This broad and ¬flexible program allows students to customize their programs to meet their objectives and particular career goals. Traditional students can prepare for technological careers in industry, graduate school or management. The more interdisciplinary students can utilize this program as a launching pad for professional careers in business or public service.
The Department offers Ph.D programs in major areas of Mechanical Engineering like Design, Thermal and Manufacturing Engineering in both full time and part time mode. Research areas include Nano Tribology, Alternate Fuel for IC Engines, Cold Thermal Storage, BioCAD, Computer Aided Assembly Planning and Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV).
The program enables the students to take up careers in a broad spectrum of industries. Many of the IT industries have CAD/CIM divisions, which increases the job potential of mechanical engineers. Around 70% of students are placed in reputed industries, practicing core and allied engineering through campus recruitment. The remaining 30% prefer higher studies in India and abroad.
