MECHANICAL ENGINEERING  DEPARTMENT 

INTRODUCTION

The department of Mechanical Engineering has experienced faculty in the areas of Design, Thermal, Production and Industrial engineering, i.e., the major areas of Mechanical Engineering. All the faculties possess the minimum qualification of post-graduation. They have published a good number of research papers in refereed International / National Journals and International / National Conferences. Faculty published papers in peer reviewed international journals.

A major effort of the department is directed towards the creation of a stimulating intellectual environment in which undergraduate students can develop to their maximum potentials. Faculty members encourage undergraduate students to participate in both fundamental and applied research. Students have excellent opportunities to participate actively in the classroom and laboratories and to follow special interests within a subject area. Hence we provide students with the foundational skills needed to understand, exploit, and enhance the mechanical behavior of advanced engineering devices and systems, and to make creative contributions at the forefront of the field.

The department has adopted latest teaching learning processes like e-learning, google apps, power point presentations, seminars, industrial visits, expert Lectures from Industry and academia Personnel etc. We take special efforts to reduce the gap between Industry & Institute by arranging internships during semester breaks or summer in companies such as Nissan Ashok Leyland, BHEL, and Visakhapatnam Steel plant, NTPC, Bakelite Hylam, ONGC, Research Centre Imarat (RCI), Ordinance Factory, Sundaram Clayton Limited, Schneider Electric, Anjani Portland Cements, SAMKRG Pistons, NATCO Pharma and AurobindoPharmaLimted etc.

The department is encouraging the students to participate in workshops and conferences to exchange latest technologies among students. The students are presented technical papers in reputed institutes like IITS, NITS, BHU, and BITSPilani.
