Department of Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering plays a major role in structuring and building the systems used in the real world. The mechanical engineers play a crucial role by designing, and manufacturing these systems. The career path of a mechanical engineer is largely determined by individual’s choice – a unique advantage in an ever-changing competitive world. The mechanical engineering curriculum focuses on material science, solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and heat transfer, automation and control, design and manufacturing. The department currently offers the following programs: Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech) in Mechanical Engineering, with the option of minor in any other streams of interest, and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering. The department offers following three specializations at the UG level: Computational Techniques; Energy Technology; Robotics and Automation

Our core objective is to develop leaders of tomorrow and conduct translational research to address the major technological bottlenecks. Department has developed state-of-the-art laboratories that includes Bio-inspired Robotics and Design lab, Advanced Manufacturing lab, Energy Systems and Technology lab, Surface Science and Tribology lab and Multi-Functional Composites lab. Some of the key research facilities in these labs include: Field emission scanning electron microscope, Wind-tunnel, Universal tensile tester, Tribometer, High precision potentiostat, Arc melter, iCVD set-up, 3D printers etc. These labs not only cater to the undergraduate curriculum but also foster research in various specialized and interdisciplinary areas. The department’s primary research themes are:  

  • Intelligent Systems and Computational Mechanics: The prime focus is on data analytics of multi-physics problems of complex systems, industrial digitization and biomimetic robots
  • Green Technologies: The primary aim is the development of environmental friendly technologies for energy generation, storage and conversion 
  • Smart Materials and Advanced Manufacturing: The primary objective is to develop smart materials for various structural and functional applications using advanced manufacturing techniques
