About the Course
Mechanical  Engineering,  the  broadest  of  all  Engineering  disciplines  deals  with  design  and  production  of tools, machines and all other mechanical equipment to be used in the industries. The industry offers a wide
choice   of   options   extending   across   many   interdisciplinary   interdependent   specialties.   Mechanical engineering is concerned with all types of machinery in industries and all aspects of their mechanism and
functioning?  the  design,  development,  construction,  production,  installation,  operation  and  maintenance. They  not  only design  and  create  new  products,  but  also  develop  materials  for  them  and  ways  of  making them. The work of Mechanical Engineer can be extremely challenging and fulfilling, requiring IT, design and analytical skills together with an ability to work as a team.

Future Scope

Mechanical  Engineering  finds  application  in  all  fields  of  technology.  They  could  work  in  many  industries including private or  public  sector  industries  of  various  types,  and  their  work  varies  from  industry  to
industry. With the rapid rate of expansion in the industrial sector, the employment potential for mechanical engineers  is  very high.  In  the  government  sector,  freshers  could  join  as  Junior  Engineers  and  go  up  the
ladder  as  Assistant  Engineers,  Assistant  Executive  Engineers,  Executive  Engineers,  and  Superintendent Engineers  and so  on.  These  Engineers  are  required  in  automobile,  chemical,  electronics,  steel  plants,  oil exploration and refining, technical wings of armed forces, space research organization, etc. Candidates with post graduate degree or an additional management degree could find work in administrative and managerial
positions  in  government  departments  or  public  and  private  sector  industries  or  do  research  as  well  as teaching in Research and teaching institutes. They could also opt for technical sales/ marketing or work as
independent consultants. Several government departments including Posts and Telegraphs, Defense, PWD, and  CPWD  employ mechanical  engineers.  Aeronautical,  agricultural,  automobile,  chemical,  and  power
plants,  as  well  as  the  railways,  need  mechanical  engineers  to  design  and  maintain  their  machinery.  In agricultural sector, mechanical engineers play a vital role by establishing service centers for maintenance of
tractors, oil engines, pump sets, electric motors and other agricultural equipments. 

Laboratory: Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical Engineering Department has following labs:

1. Strength of Material: The strength of materials deals with the study of materials used in structural applications. In this laboratory, students are provided with the opportunity to apply loads to various materials under different equilibrium conditions and keep deformation within acceptable limits. Tests on materials in tension, torsion, bending, and buckling are also performed. Material behavior is monitored during testing and for any type of
destructive testing, fracture zone and material behavior observations are a key element 

2. Fluid mechanics: This practical work determines the viscosity and mass density of an unknown fluid. Viscosity is that property of fluid which provides an indication of the resistance to shear within a fluid. A stopwatch is usedto determine readings on a viscometer and hence note the rate of drop of various spheres within the fluid. The laboratory work includes a close and deep examination of the theoretical analysis of fluid dynamics.

3. Heat Transfer Lab: Heat transfer has various aspects such as conduction, convection and radiation. This lab aims at providing practical in­depth knowledge about various modes of Heat transfer in same metals, different metal and water. The equipments in the lab are used to calculate heat transfer co­efficient and constants. The lab work includes Determination of Electiveness of a Heat exchanger, Determination of Stefan­Boltzmann constant, Performance of Solar still, Determination of critical heat flux, Performance of solar water heater etc. 

4. Kinematics of Machine/Dynamics of Machine Lab: Kinematics deals with the motion of points, bodies and systems of bodies. Motion in kinematics is defined as study of trajectories of points, lines and other geometric objects and their differential properties. Kinematics is used in astrophysics to describe the motion of celestial bodies. The lab work includes determining modulus of rigidity, value of coefficient of friction, displacement, velocity and acceleration by shaft etc. 

5. Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Lab: Refrigeration is a part and parcel of everyday life. This lab provides knowledge about different needs, uses and working of Refrigeration and Air­Conditioning. The lab work includes study of various vapour compression refrigeration cycles, various performance parameters on blower apparatus and cooling tower .the practical knowledge aims at complete grasping up of various devices with their use and working 

6. Computer aided design and manufacturing Lab: This lab helps students to inculcate the fundamentals of applications of computers in various stages of design, analysis and manufacturing of components. CAD/CAM lab is equipped with advanced software and hardware. The 3­D models are designed with innovation using Pro­Engineer and various other mechanical engineering softwares like AutoCAD etc.

7. Production Technology Lab: It teaches the advanced manufacturing process in Mechanical and Production engineering. It basically deals with the process of chip formation. The Advanced Manufacturing Processes provide a pathway the Mechanical engineers in various industrial situations. This lab work covers areas of Milling, Gear hobbing, grinding, working of CNC, lathe machine and boring etc.
