Mechanical Engineering Department commenced with a ‘wide lens approach’ since academic year 2011-12, with an intake of sixty students approved by AICTE and affiliated to BPUT in August 2011 and the intake has, of late, increased to 180 in 2014, besides second shift intake 60.
The Department is flourishing with a talent pool of highly qualified and experienced faculty members to impart quality technical education and professional skills to the students. The department has 14 faculty members for theory classes including two PhD, 10 Mtech and rest with Btech holders. Besides 11 technical support staffs are there in the department for conducting Lab classes and workshop practices.
Their unified efforts and responsibilities have been witnessing the Department most sought after and vibrant. Spotting the students deficiency and addressing them on board through exploratory ideas and innovative tools on cutting-edge technology have set the Department stand in good stead. The students are well grounded and exposed to all the ropes of technical studies and innovative projects through hands-on practice and visualization to take on the challenges of modern tech world.
In order to provide our students with better technical insight and practical training on different fields, the Department is ably equipped with two technical clubs such as “Auto-Zoomers” on Automotive Technology and “PLM club” on super-specialty mechanical CAD/CAE design.
The above two clubs impart skill edge to our students through value based training and certification with new tools and technology beyond the curriculum schedule. All the clubs remain engaged throughout the year in carrying out host of activities like awareness, experience sharing, hands-on training, adaptations, talks, workshop and seminars by inviting eminent academicians on different thrust areas and in turn, the clubs help the students address the existing skill gap between academia and industries.
An exclusive Automotive Workshop has been set up to provide our students a live demonstration of automotive parts and their functions in 2-wheeler and 4-wheeler vehicles. Every batch is exposed to this lab to design and develop a GO-KART and F1 CAR to showcase their automotive skillset and learning outcome at the national level Auto-competitions.
