About the Department:
Mechanical engineering is a diverse subject that derives its area from the need to design and manufacture everything from small individual parts and devices (e.g. inkjet printer nozzles) to large systems (e.g., spacecraft and machine tools). The role of a mechanical engineer is to take a product from an idea to the marketplace. In order to accomplish this, a broad range of skills are needed. The mechanical engineer needs to acquire particular skills and knowledge. He/she needs to understand the forces and the thermal environment that a product, its parts, or its subsystems will encounter to design them for functionality, aesthetics, and the ability to withstand the forces and the thermal environment they will be subjected to and to determine the best way to manufacture them and ensure they will operate without failure.
Mechanical engineers play a central role in such industries as Automotive (from the car chassis to its every subsystem—engine, transmission, sensors); Aerospace (airplanes, aircraft engines, control systems for airplanes and spacecraft), Energy conversion (gas turbines, wind turbines, solar energy, fuel cells); Environmental control (HVAC, air-conditioning, refrigeration, compressors); Automation (robots, data and image acquisition, recognition, control); Manufacturing (machining, machine tools, prototyping, microfabrication).
The Mechanical Engineering Department endeavors to be recognized for outstanding education and research leading to well qualified engineers, who are innovative, entrepreneurial and successful in advanced fields of mechanical engineering to cater the ever changing industrial demands and social needs.
- To imparting highest quality education to the students to build their capacity and enhancing their skills to make them globally competitive mechanical engineers.
- To develop alliances with Training organizations, educational institutions, industry and alumni for excellence in teaching, research and consultancy practices.
- To provide the students with academic environment of excellence, leadership, ethical guidelines and lifelong learning needed for a long productive career.
