Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in 1979 with the intake of 60 students for undergraduate curriculum leading to Bachelors degree. Later, the intake was increased to 120 students on demand from industries and research institutes. Post-graduation curriculum leading to Masters degree in the area of Machine Design was started in 2002 with the intake of 18 students. The Department is also having Research Centre and Product Development Cell.

The Department is continuously striving to achieve excellence in education, academic and industry oriented research as well as consultancy work with service to the society. Our research activities primarily focus on Composites, Alternative fuels and Alternative energies.We aim to provide our students with a perfect blend of intellectual and practical experiences, which helps them to serve our society and address a variety of needs. At the end of our program, students are prepared for entry-level work as a mechanical engineer as well as for the post-graduate study in mechanical engineering or in another discipline, where a fundamental engineering background constitutes a desirable foundation. Both undergraduates and postgraduates are well placed in leading industries as well as in the higher research level institutions of international recognition.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering, being one of the largest and oldest departments of the Institute, caters to its students with class tutorial and state-of-the-art laboratories. Apart from carrying out practical classes as per academic curriculum, Workshop caters to needs of different departments of the Institute in terms of executing works of their BE, MTech and PhD students as well as other related research works. The Department also welcomes students from other departments of the institute as a gesture of support to their time-to-time academic and research needs. Both undergraduates and postgraduates are well placed in leading industries as well as in the higher research level institutions of international recognition.
