The Department of Mechanical Engineering is functioning since the inception of the college with an intake of 60 students. An additional batch of 60 students was started in the year 2010.
The department has the state of the art facilities for various laboratories and department library. Guest lectures and industrial visits are periodically arranged for the students to supplement their curriculum. The Department strive for all round excellence in students, encouraging them in all extra curricular activities.Research activities at the department are progressing in the areas of feature based design, optimization/analysis of mechanical systems, alternate fuels for IC engines, air pollution modeling, thermal energy storage, and materials technology.
The department has a team of highly qualified and experienced faculty . The department regularly organizes technical workshops and promotes faculties and students to attend workshops and conferences to expose them to emerging areas.
