The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in the year 2001 with an annual intake of 60 students in B. Tech. Course. The intake has subsequently been increased to 180 students per year. The course is divided into Eight Semesters.
4 Weeks and 6 weeks Industrial Training is compulsory for students of 2nd and 3rd year respectively. Institute helps in arranging the training. Evaluation is done on the basis of a report submitted by each student followed by a seminar on it. Students are also taken on study tour to industries and relevant organizations
Workshop and Laboratories are the heart of Mechanical Engineering Department. A well equipped workshop occupying over 5000 sq. ft. area has adequate facilitates for practical classes. The following are the shops in workshop
1. Machine Shop
2. Welding Shop
3. Sheet Metal Shop
4. Carpentry Shop
5. Fitting Shop
The department has well equipped laboratories for practical classes for different subjects. There is a practice to upgrade laboratories continuously. The department also submit proposals for modernisation for laboratories in AICTE. About an year back AICTE has sanctioned Rs Four Lakhs for upgrading CAD lab . With this grant department has purchased Solid works software. The following are the main laboratories
1. Material Testing & Material Sc.lab
2. Dynamics of Machine lab
3. Fluid Mechanics &Fluid Machinery lab
4. Thermodynamics lab
5. Automobile Engg.
6. Refrigeration & Air Conditioning
7. Heat & Mass Transfer lab
8. CAD /CAM lab
9. Measurement and Metrology.
10. Engg. Graphics lab
The Central Library has more than 770 titles of books in different subjects of Mechanical Engineering with over 4500 volumes. There are many on-line lectures available in the library. The library has DEL NET facility also. The central library also subscribe many good E- Journals and Periodicals which are kept in bound form.
The department also organises seminars. Conferences and arranges invited guest lecturers through expert from academic institute like IIT and Nit and also from Industries.
The department has well qualified and experienced faculty. All the faculty members are with M.Tech Degree. The department offers open elective and professional electives as per need of industries. The department also runs the classes for GATE examination. Faculty development program on soft computing was organised about a year back. At present the department is organising FDP On Emerging Trends in Power Generation sanctioned by AICTE.
The department has also introduced M.tech Course in Mechanical Engineering from 2010 with an intake of 18 students per year. Six students have got the M.Tech degree and six more students are likely to submit thesis shortly. At present the department is headed by Dr. Satish Chand B.E (Hons.) ME (Hons.) P.h.D. . He was professor and Head of Mech Engg. Department , MNNIT, Allahabad.
