Established in the year 2002, with 60 students, the Department of Mechanical
Engineering has blossomed to 360 students in 2014 as a full- fledged state of
the art facility, a centre of excellence for Quality Education. The Department
boasts of highly qualified and experienced professionals with wide exposure in
all aspects of the subjects they handle. Many faculties possess/ pursue PhD and
are involved in research and consultancy projects including friction stir
processing, welding, advanced machining, nano composite materials, alternate
fuels, additives, tribology and wear.
The students of the department have consistently performed well in academics with 3
gold medals and 125 University ranks so far. In addition to academics, the students
career is enhanced through training in soft skills, personality development and
placement training classes. With industrial and field experts, value added programs
such as CNC Machine Programming, CATIA, PIPING-SOFTWARE, CFD, SAP and GATE are
regularly conducted. The major recruiters of the department include Yamaha, Ashok
Leyland, Mahindra, F.L.Smidth, MRF, TCS, Infosys, Wipro, CTS. Many students also
pursue higher studies at reputed national and international universities
