Prof. & Head
The Mechanical Engineering Department started in the year 2002 offers Graduate and Post Graduate programme in Machine Design. The department has highly qualified faculty having wide teaching and industrial experience. It has well equipped laboratories with advanced machinery. The department has a separate library and is involved in Research and Development work on Noise and Vibration, Composites, Finite Element Analysis and Product Design.
Mechanical Engineering is a discipline of engineering that applies the principles of physics and materials science for analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is the branch of engineering that involves the production and usage of heat and mechanical power for the design, production, and operation of machines and tools. It is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines.
Hence it is the most important branch of engineering with umpteen number of direct application of Basic Science like Physics and Mathematics intern helps students to enhance their observing, analyzing, implementation, and product development skills.
The Department is Proud to have qualified Faculty belonging to various streams of Engineering specialization naming design engineering, manufacturing, materials thermal, aerodynamics and Mechatronics. All the qualified faculty members are possessing master degree in this respective discipline the department is proud to have 8 Ph.D. Research Scholars perceiving these doctoral studies.
Since most of the faculty members are pursuing these research works in the research centre it’s in EWIT and with a total intake of 120 UG students and 18 PG students in the discipline of machine design form the core team of researchers.
The Department has established a fully fledged research centre as 3 recognized guides and 4 research scholars perceiving doctoral studies.
