With excellent teaching and learning environment it provides a platform to instill high motivation, moral values and leadership in its students.
The Department offers eight-semester Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) course with an annual intake of seventy, four-semester Master of Technology (M. Tech.) course with annual intake of 18 and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Mechanical Engineering. M. Tech. Program is offered in three broad areas of Mechanical Engineering namely Production-Industrial Engineering, Machine Design and Thermal Engineering. The department has a student population of about 560 at UG, 40 at PG and about 44 at doctoral research levels. In addition, it also offers four-year, Bachelor of Engineering (B.E) (Part-Time) program in the evening with an annual intake of 70 for working diploma holders to up-grade their knowledge and skill.
The students from diverse background are selected through a nationwide written test followed by an interview. The posh campus, situated in southern suburb of national capital provides excellent teaching and learning environment to the students. Most of the classrooms are fitted with modern audio visual aids. The undergraduate curriculum of the Department includes a foundation of mathematics, physics, chemistry, environment, humanities, and electrical engineering. Engineering courses in fundamental areas constitute much of the remaining curriculum. A few technical electives allow the undergraduate student to specialize somewhat or to pursue broader understanding. In addition, the students develop experiment conducting skill by performing experiments in 20 different laboratories in the department. Department also supports workshop to students of all branches of Engineering.
The course curriculum has been designed to prepare its graduates to become intellectual leaders in industry, government, and academia. Graduates of the program will have the professional and scientific knowledge that allows them to be successful as career engineers and in the most demanding graduate programs. Specifically, they will be able to:
- Function in professional environments in industry, government, and academia applying and building upon engineering science knowledge, problem-solving skills, and communication skills;
- Function as members of teams and in leadership roles applying ethical standards beyond traditional Mechanical engineering disciplines; Remain acquainted with technology and contemporary scientific and societal issues, and consequently improve skills and knowledge through a lifelong process of learning.
- Good research facilities and teaching oriented laboratories are available in Metrology, Ergonomics, CAD, Computer Integrated Manufacturing and Refrigeration and Air-conditioning
Department has active and vibrant students’ chapters of major professional bodies as American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). Here they get a world class platform for organizing, participating and developing engineering ideas. This helps them in developing a holistic personality.
It has sanctioned strength of 27 teachers. The Department derives its excellence from the team of highly qualified, experienced, sincere and dedicated teaching faculty members. , all employed have PhDs, except few members pursuing research. The Faculty members actively participate in research and consultancy-work with a gross departmental publication of exceeding 350 in reputed refereed International Journals. Faculty is high qualified and sincere.
Research in the Department of Mechanical Engineering is diverse and scholars are directly exposed to the multidisciplinary nature of modern mechanical engineering and its allied areas. At any point of time approximate 40 students are enrolled in the department for research. The Department provides facilities and supervision to conduct research on advanced topics of Industrial-Production, Thermal and Machine Design Engineering.
The department has active collaboration with academics and industry such as University of Salford (UK), CII, IIT Delhi, NTPC, TERI, DTU, DST, DRDO, currently department is undertaking two sponsored research projects one from Department of Science and Technology for Rs 15.36 lacs (on Technology Forecasting and Assessment) and another from Ministry of Environment and Forests partnered with TERI for Rs 68 Lacs.
In the past, several events including International conferences, National conferences, Summer schools, Seminars and Workshops related to various areas of Mechanical Engineering have been organized and similar events are planned to be organized in future too.
