About Department

Mechanical engineering is a discipline of engineering that applies the principles of physics and materials science for analysis, design, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems. It involves the production and usage of heat and mechanical power for the design, production and operation of machines and tools. Major areas of mechanical engineering industry includes designing, manufacturing, heat transfers, energy conversion, solid mechanics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, measurement mech.

Mechanical engineers use these core principles along with tools like computer-aided engineering and product lifecycle management to design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating & cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices and many more. In other words, mechanical engineers are involved in creating the future. They are the driving force behind many of our technologies and industrial processes including innovative products in our modern world. The work of a Mechanical Engineer can be extremely challenging and fulfilling, requiring IT, design and analytical skills together with an ability to work as a team.
