The discipline of Mechanical engineering involves the application of principles of engineering, physics, and material sciences for the design, analysis, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems. It includes the design, production and operation of machinery. The Department of mechanical engineering has been designed keeping in mind the growing demand for specialized courses in the field of mechanical engineering at the pre-doctoral research level. In contrast to traditional courses, the new courses will focus on research, analysis and application of mechanical engineering in diverse fields.

The faculty members of the Department are well qualified, having rich experience in teaching, research and consultancy work. The current research interests include Thermal Spray Coating, Fracture Mechanics, Mechanical Characterization of thin films, Finite Element Modelling & Simulation, Fibre Reinforced Metal Matrix Composites, Computer-aided Design and Manufacturing.
