Mechanical Engineering

B. Tech in Mechanical Engineering: Overview

Mechanical engineering is one of first three branches of engineering with which the institution started. This branch of engineering includes the use of physics and mathematics to broadly study the designing, functioning, analytics and maintaining of mechanical systems. Under the mechanical engineering branch there are two under graduate programs one being mechanical and the other production. There is a post graduate program in Industrial refrigeration and Cryogenic Engineering. There is an intake of 60 seats in the undergraduate courses and the post graduate courses have an intake of 18 seats. The main component of mechanical engineering is their workshops where students do their practical classes and learn the mechanisms and functioning of each machines. So in this branch the main area is the Central Workshop. This workshop is where the first year students do their practical. The Central Workshop has sub shops where different functions are taught separately. They are Machine shop, Fitting shop, Carpentry shop, Wielding shop, Smithy shop, Sheet metal shop, Foundry shop and plumbing shop. Besides the central workshop, there are various well equipped labs such as Heat Engines Laboratory, Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulic machines laboratory, CAD/CAM Centre, Production Tooling lab, Production process laboratory, CIM lab, Thermal Engineering Lab, Metrology lab, Metallurgy Lab for the under graduate students. The labs provided for post graduate students are Industrial Refrigeration and Cryogenics Laboratory and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Centre.
