"Mechanical Engineering is an engineering discipline that involves the application of principles of physics for analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It requires a solid understanding of key concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics and energy. Mechanical engineers use these principles and others in the design and analysis of automobiles, aircraft, heating & cooling systems, manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, medical devices and more."
One of several recognized fields of engineering. To grasp the meaning of mechanical engineering, it is desirable to take a close look at what engineering really is. The Engineers' Council for Professional Development has defined engineering as the profession in which a knowledge of the mathematical and physical sciences gained by study, experience, and practice is applied with judgment to develop ways to utilize economically the materials and forces of nature for the progressive well-being of mankind. It is a profession in which study in mathematics and science is blended with experience and judgment for the production of useful things.
Established in 1994 with an intake of 60 students, the undergraduate program in Mechanical Engineering, MESCE is currently having an intake of 60 students and post graduate program in 'Thermal Systems' with an intake of 18. The program also entertains a lateral entry in UG for diploma holders as per AICTE norms in the third semester. In addition to this regular course, department endeavors to conduct various short-term and training programmes .
The Department has well equipped laboratories and computing facilities, with latest technology and syllabus requirements. The department faculty rooms and the laboratories are connected by the institute LAN linking with all other departments and the Internet world outside.
Well qualified faculty and skilled supporting staff are the strengths of the department.
