The department of Mechanical Engineering offers a vibrant and engaging environment for teaching and learning and thus is a breeding ground for well-groomed professionals in the field. The department is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities in the core areas of mechanical engineering and has a pool of well qualified faculty with rich experience in teaching, research and industry. The laboratories have been strengthened and modernized by procuring state-of-art equipment and latest software. The department is committed to provide an outstanding research and learning environment to its students.
While building a solid foundation of the fundamentals, the students are also exposed to emerging trends in the industry and are molded to be quality professionals of the future. The students are imparted education beyond the subject knowledge augmenting the class room teaching with instructional cum research based laboratory work, project based learning, intense industrial exposure and hands-on experience on design and fabrication of general products and machine components. All the students undergo compulsory in-house summer training; to develop skills in the application of theory to practical real life problems. They also actively organize various programmes and participate in workshops under the aegis of SAE and ASME. The students have demonstrated excellence in practical knowledge by making innovative projects and winning prizes consecutively for last many years in the project competitions organized by the Faridabad Industries Association (FIA).
The department has a pool of highly qualified faculty members having rich experience in teaching, research and industry who have been imparting quality education at both, undergraduate and post-graduate level. Faculty has competency in the areas of Design and Analysis, Tribology, Solar Energy, Applied Mechanics, Turbines and Power generation, Fluid Machines, Manufacturing Technologies, Industrial Engineering, Reliability Engineering, Material Science and Renewable Energy.
Thrust Areas of the Department
MECHANICAL COURSES OFFERED
The opportunities are plenty and endless because of the broad nature of the field that mechanical engineering offers. In the government sector, mechanical engineers can provide their knowledge to various government run projects in the role of technical experts and consultants. Mechanical engineers are required to design, test, manufacture, install, operate and maintain a wide array of machines and mechanical systems and hence can find employment in private sector undertakings as well as in the government companies like ISRO, DRDO, Indian Oil, SAIL, GAIL, BHEL, NTPC, NHPC, POWER GRID, Railways, CIL, HAL, BEL etc. They can also work in private engineering companies that provide technical consultancy to both government and corporate firms. They not only have countless options in the industrial sector but they can also make foray into new realms of technology and even get into management and technical consultancy. Major industries include automobiles, aeronautical, power, energy and utilities, air conditioning and refrigeration industry, manufacturing plants, oil and gas exploration, refining industries, agricultural sector, shipping industry, banks, insurance, financial institutions, teaching & research organizations, like Cinda, Krishna Maruti, Federal Moghul, Accenture, Sagacious Research and many are our prime recruiters. Under the banner of ISHRAE Bluestar, Voltas, LG, Zamil, Santrupti, Airflow, Magneto Environmental solutions like HVAC & RAC industries also visits our campus for placement drive.
The university is taking an initiative to include B.Tech Program in Industrial Engineering & Management as an addition to the existing Mechanical Engineering B.Tech Program to provide an impetus to the most important subjects like operations planning and control. Maintenance Management and Reliability Analysis to boost the confidence of Graduates who would be accepting challenging career in any Industry. Besides hard core engineering, this program shall have a marked orientation towards management discipline also. This program has a very high potential for coveted placements both in manufacturing and management segments.
They are also actively involved in research activities in the areas of Design and Analysis, Solar Thermal/Photovoltaic, Non-conventional Machining and Ergonomics, Conversion of Diesel Engine into Dual Fuel Mode and 100% Gas Engine, study of Bio-fuels, Industrial waste water treatment.
Department encourages faculty and students to actively participate in conferences and publish research papers in various National & International Conferences. Students joining the Department of Mechanical engineering may expect to pursue careers in top engineering industry, Government organizations/ departments like ISRO, DRDO. Indian SAIL, GAIL, BHEL, Railways etc. as well as research and academics.
