M-3: To promote enterprising abilities for the benefit of society by imbibing professional skills.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

Graduate shall have ability:

PEO-1: To be a successful professional.
PEO-2: To deliver innovative and sustainable solutions for diverse domain.
PEO-3: To deal with contemporary and future societal issues ethically.

The department’s Curriculum programme includes a deeper study of number of engineering sciences to which the students are introduced at the core level, experimental solution of physical problems, techniques & method of design of system relevant to the contemporary industrial world. The broad areas include Energy Conversion & Power Systems, Heat Transfer & Fluid Mechanics, Mechanics of Solids & Stress Analysis, Manufacturing Science, Industrial Engineering, Automatic Control & Engineering Design.
The department of Mechanical Engineering has started Post Graduate programme in ME (Design) from the session 2012-13. And ME (Heat Power) from 2014-15. In the Post Graduate programme, the emphasis will be on enhancing the research activity.
The department is committed to produce the top class engineering professionals through academic excellence and quality education. The department has well qualified and experienced faculty members. A well equipped state of the art laboratory helps the students to keep in pace with the racing technology

An interactive relationship is maintained between the students and staff which enable the students to develop a sound foundation in the stream in a conducive environment. For the overall personality development of students, department has established ‘Mechanical Engineering Students Association (MESA), Society of Automotive Engineer (SAE) chapter, ASHARE Chapter. Students  participating BAJA,SUPRA,& ROBOWAR Competition at National & International levels every year & getting First prize. Research activities are carried out for which we got funds from ASHARE. Under QIP to conduct FDP we got funds from SPPU.   Also, Mechanical Department has signed MoU with Parametric Technology Corporation, USA under the aegis of Super computer Acadmy Karad Satara for course CREO version 2.0. For Siemens PLM Program (SolidEdge, NXCAD, NXNASTRAN) Mechanical Department has signed MoU with Pearson Publications, under the aegis of A plus Educomp, Benglore, Karnataka.
