“Incorporating Excellent Teaching – Learning Practices To Create a Centre Of Excellence That Strives for Research, Creativity, Product Development with Project Based Learning Which shall be Recognized at National and International Level”
Welcome to Mechanical Engineering Department,
The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in 2004 with intake of 60 students and today in 2021 we have intake of 210 students per year.. This gradual expansion took place in last decade mainly due to demand of qualified and competent mechanical engineers.
The department has focused on developing innovative learning environment so as to create future engineers who are ready for the employment, entrepreneurship, life-long learning and citizen of India. Our learning environment can be divided in three parts. Academic activities mainly include curricular teaching-learning, various co-curricular activities and extracurricular activities. We believe that engineering education must be integrated with excellent teaching- learning practices, state of art infrastructure and most importantly pool of qualified teaching staff. Our teaching learning practices are blend of traditional lectures, aligned with active learning and Project Based Learning principles. The motto is learning should be enjoyable and relevant to the need of stakeholders.
To support our vision and mission (listed below), we made remarkable investment in the infrastructure and facilities. We have well equipped laboratories in three important streams of mechanical engineering viz. Thermal, Design, and Production. Our central workshop is biggest in the STES family in terms of machinery and equipments. . The teaching staffs have been selected thoughtfully, having the blend of experience and youth. We have highly qualified and experienced teaching staff members with one awarded PhD, seven registered PhDs with diverse research areas and rest are post- graduated in different fields of mechanical such as Design engineering, Thermal, Heat Power, Production, Automobile, CAD/CAM etc.
Apart from academic our Department has earned its name for arranging many events co-curricular and extracurricular activities. Our main co-curricular activities include Value Addition Programmes, Lab Innovation Scheme, Invited Talks and Students Training programme (STP). Additional curricular activities include Annual National Conferences, Workshops, Seminars and Technical festival named as ‘Techtonic’. All these activities are framed to add value to the students and aim at imparting professional skills to improve their employability skills. We promote industry projects; arrange Industrial visits, and talks from industry experts. These activities give much needed industry exposure to our students.
To interact with Professionals, Department has formed ISHRAE, MESA, SAE, Aero Club, Go - Carting and Robo Club; which provide a platform to impart specified knowledge to students in the field of refrigeration, air-conditioning, automobile, design and CAD/CAM engineering. These clubs are managed by the students’ bodies and guided by the faculty coordinator.. We have been acknowledged at National level by the technical events, such as BAJA, ROBOCAON and Go-CART. Our student represented us in National boxing team, University table tennis team, appointed as student brand ambassador for European Commission for youth, and student brand ambassador for Microsoft. Our students filed patents based on their research work. All these efforts are also reflected by campus placement of students from core Mechanical companies like THERMAX, CROMPTON GREAVES, MAHINDRA & MAHINDRA, ATLAS COPCO, TATA TECHNOLOGIES, CUMMINS etc. and also in IT major like WIPRO, INFOSYS AND CAPGEMINI,ACCENTURE etc.
We dream to establish ourselves as a leading department imparting quality education to produce competent Mechanical engineers. Once again welcome to Mechanical Engineering Department.
Nurture Excellent Mechanical Engineers Imparting Technical & Professional Skills Along With Ethical Values To Serve The Society.
M1: Impart quality education through effective teaching-learning techniques and practical skills.
M2: Provide a conducive environment for excelling the students and faculty in technical and professional skills.
M3: Make competent mechanical engineers with moral and ethical values to serve the society.
Short Term Goals
Long Term Goals
Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)
I. To develop students to achieve high level of technical expertise with Strong theoretical background and sound practical knowledge.

IV. To Enhance ability of students for providing Engineering solution in a global and societal context.
V. Pursue higher education for professional development.
POs are statements that describe what students are expected to know and be able to do upon graduating from the program. These relate to the skills, knowledge, analytical ability attitude and behavior that students acquire through the program.
i) Engineering Knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
ii) Problem Analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
iii) Design/Development of Solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
iv) Conduct Investigations of Complex Problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions for complex problems:
v) Modern Tool Usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modelling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
vi) The Engineer and Society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
vii) Environment and Sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
viii) Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
ix) Individual and Team Work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
x) Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
xi) Project Management and Finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
xii) Life-long Learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and lifelong learning in the broadest context of technological change.
