The Department of Mechanical Engineering is one of the pioneer and leading department in terms of well-educated faculty members, research activities as well as facilities. Established in 1990, the Mechanical Engineering Department offers courses in B.Tech (Mechanical) and M.Tech. (Manufacturing Science & Technology and Thermal Engineering) and Ph.D Programme (through AKTU) affiliated with AKTU, Lucknow suiting to the requirements of modern industry and research. M.Tech in Manufacturing Science and Technology was started in 2006 and M.Tech in Thermal Engineering was started in 2012.
The Department has well equipped labs with modern facilities such as equipment, measuring tools, advanced machines and latest software. Department has been supported by the World Bank through TEQIP-I (Ist phase), continuing with TEQIP-II and TEQIP-III for development of labs and infrastructure. The labs include CAM Lab with CNC machines, CAD Lab with softwares like Solidworks, Ansys, etc, Heat and Mass transfer lab, Refrigeration and Air conditioning lab, DOM lab, Materials and Testing lab, Mechanics lab, Fluid Machinery lab, Automobile lab, power plant lab, Manufacturing science lab, Applied thermodynamics lab and workshop with welding, machine, forging, sheet metal, carpentry and fitting shop. Wire EDM, ZNC EDM, ECM, Lab view for virtual instrumentation along with temperature and pressure sensors with DAQ card, Computerized Hardness tester, Pin on disc Wear test apparatus, Metallurgical Microscope have been purchased with support of TEQIP.
The Department presents a nice blend of courses focusing on recent development in engineering and technology with special emphasis on design, thermal technologies, production processes, automobiles and CAD/CAM. The department is fully centred on the all-round development of students. All the faculties are keen to provide all round support to the students for their full-fledged development.
