HoD’s Message

Dear Students, Faculty Members, and Visitors,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Department of Mechanical Engineering at our esteemed engineering college. As the Head of the Department, I am proud to lead a team of highly motivated and dedicated individuals who are committed to providing quality education and research opportunities to our students.
Our department offers a wide range of courses that are designed to equip our students with the knowledge and skills required to excel in their chosen careers. We have state-of-the-art facilities, modern laboratories, and an exceptional faculty who are experts in their respective fields.
The Mechanical Engineering curriculum will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the principles and applications of mechanical systems and their components. In this curriculum, the students will explore the fascinating world of Mechanical Engineering, including topics such as mechanics, thermodynamics, materials science, advanced manufacturing, robotics and much more. Throughout the courses in Mechanical Engineering, students will analyze the fundamental principles of motion, energy, and force, and learn how to apply them to a diverse array of mechanical systems.
As a student in our Mechanical Engineering Department, you will have access to a range of specialized facilities, including advanced manufacturing labs, metallurgy and materials lab, advanced heat engines lab, fluid machinery lab, heat transfer lab, robotics and automation lab, and advanced modelling and simulation software, all designed to enhance your learning experience and support your career goals.
Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) has revolutionized the field of Mechanical Engineering by enabling engineers to simulate and analyze complex mechanical systems using advanced software tools. In CAE-based Mechanical Engineering course, students will gain a deep understanding of the principles and techniques used in computer-based simulation and analysis of mechanical systems. The course will cover a range of topics, including Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), and Multibody Dynamics (MBD), as well as other advanced simulation techniques. Students will also learn how to use specialized software tools to model, simulate, and analyze mechanical systems, and how to interpret and communicate the results of their analyses. Our department is equipped with the following specialized tools and facilities for supporting CAE-based Mechanical Engineering:
3-D modelling PLM software

  1. 3-D Experience (latest version of CATIA, academic license)
  2. Autodesk FUSION 360 (student version)
  3. AutoCAD (student version)

Analysis Packages

  1. ANSYS workbench (version 2022, academic license)
  2. High performance computing facility in SUNYA LAB for running MATLAB (campus license) and ANSYS workbench.

Open source software promoted for student projects

  1. OpenFOAM
  3. Ricardo-WAVE
  4. Design-Expert

3-D printing facility
Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) printers

Add-on courses

  1. 3-D modelling using CATIA, Fusion 360, AutocAD
  2. CAE workshops using ANSYS workbench
  3. CNC part programming and simulation
  4. ASNT level-II NDT course

Professional bodies play a vital role in developing and enforcing industry standards and regulations, which can help to ensure that Engineering work is conducted safely and to a high standard. In Mechanical Engineering Department, our students are members of ASME (American society for Mechanical Engineers), SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers), ISHRAE (Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers), and ISTE (Indian Society for Technical Education).
The Mechanical Engineering association of our Department, Real Mechanica, play a crucial role in supporting the professional development of the students. Through the association activities we create a platform to connect with professionals in the field and share knowledge and ideas. We organize conferences, seminars, and other events, so that the members can collaborate and learn about new developments and technologies in the field.
As an autonomous institution, we have taken care to frame a new Mechanical Engineering curriculum, where we encourage the concept of “co-teaching” by the industries. Through this, the industry can partner with academic institutions to provide internships, training programs, and other work-study opportunities for students. This gives students valuable hands-on experience and helps to bridge the gap between academia and industry.
At the Department of Mechanical Engineering, we believe in fostering a culture of innovation, creativity, and excellence. Our students are encouraged to think outside the box, to question assumptions, and to come up with novel solutions to complex problems. Through our curriculum and research initiatives, we aim to instill in our students the values of critical thinking, leadership, and lifelong learning.
As you navigate our website, I hope you will find the information you need about our programs, research activities, placements, facilities and faculty members. Whether you are a prospective student, a current student, or a visitor, we are here to support and guide you every step of the way.
Thank you for your interest in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at our engineering college. We look forward to hearing from you and to welcoming you to our community.
