Program Overview

Mechanical Engineering is the branch of engineering that is generally concerned with understanding forces and motion and their application to solving problems of interest to society.

The field includes aspects of thermodynamics, fluid and solid mechanics, mechanisms, materials and energy conversion and transfer and involves the application of physics, mathematics, chemistry and increasingly, biology and computer science. Importantly, the field also emphasizes the process of formulation, design, optimization, manufacture and control of new systems and devices.

bemechanicalTechnical developments in the last decade have established the importance of interdisciplinary engineering and science and as a result, new technical disciplines within mechanical engineering have emerged. These new areas build on an understanding of the fundamental behavior of physical systems; however, the focus of this work is at the interfaces between traditional disciplines. Examples of the new disciplines include: micro- and nano-mechanical systems, simulation and synthesis, integrated complex distributed systems and biological engineering.

Vision

To develop a world class programme with excellence in teaching, learning and research that would lead to growth, innovation and recognition.

Mission

The mission of the Mechanical Engineering Program is to benefit the society at large by providing technical education to interested and capable students. These technocrats should be able to apply basic and contemporary science, engineering and research skills to identify problems in the industry and academia and be able to develop practical solutions to them.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

  • To prepare students for successful careers in industry to meet the needs of Indian and Global companies.
  • To provide students with a sound foundation in the mathematical, scientific and engineering fundamentals.
  • To develop the ability among students to synthesize data, interpret them appropriately and be able to apply concepts to mechanical system design or to a mechanical subsystem of an interdisciplinary system.
  • To provide opportunity for students to work in their individual capacity as well as to function as teams on multidisciplinary projects.
  • To enable students for lifelong learning and introduce them to professional ethics and sustainable development.
  • To develop among students an attitude towards self-employment through entrepreneurship.
