“Manufacturing is more than just putting parts together. It’s coming up with ideas, testing principles and perfecting the engineering as well as final assembly.”

~James Dyson

Mechanical engineering is concerned with the responsible development of products, processes, and power, at scales ranging from molecules to large and complex systems. Many innovations crucial to our future will have their roots in the world of mass, motion, forces, and energy—the world of mechanical engineers. The Department of Mechanical Engineering endeavors to be recognized globally for outstanding education and research leading to well-qualified, innovative, entrepreneurial, and successful engineers to cater the ever-changing industrial demands and social needs. The Department aims to conduct innovative research and to provide a world-class education that instills the professional, technical, critical thinking, and communication skills necessary to make impactful contributions to society.

The Department started its journey in 2014. Since its inception, the Department has produced globally competent Mechanical Engineers capable of contributing the society through innovation and working in multidisciplinary fields. The Department aims to provide the students with the perfect blend of intellectual and practical experiences that help them to serve our society and address a variety of needs of good human beings.

The primary goals of the Department are as follows:

  • To maintain a high standard of education through outstanding teaching, innovative curricula, and research training that reflect the changing needs of society.
  • To attract highly motivated students with enthusiasm, aptitude, and interest in mechanical engineering.
  • To pursue excellence in research and technology transfer.
  • To increase the public awareness of Departmental activities and the Mechanical Engineering profession.
  • To provide the latest knowledge and research as well as the opportunity to consult and share best practices.
  • To update with an understanding of modern mechanical engineering fields like artificial intelligence, computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), product life cycle management to design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment, and machinery.
  • To cater to the modern knowledge of heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, robotics, medical devices, weapons, etc.
  • To conduct multidisciplinary and collaborative research works with various industries and academic institutes.
