Department of Mechanical Engineering


 

About the Department

“We work to impart an Engineering and Technical Education by which character is formed; strength of mind increased, the intellect expanded and one becomes capable of breaking in to new grounds of prosperity”. With this ideal the Department of Mechanical Engineering was started in the year 2010. The Department has latest version equipments catering to the needs of both academic and industry. The worth of the equipment alone will cost around Rs.1.5 crores. Thermal lab, Manufacturing Technology lab and CAD/CAM laboratories are well equipped with research facilities. The Department has highly qualified and dedicated faculty members with rich experience in academic and industry.
