Mechanical engineering is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines that apply engineering physics, engineering mathematics and material science principles to design, analyze, manufacture and maintain mechanical systems.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in the year 2009 with an annual intake of 60 students.We have well established and modernized laboratories with latest technologies to enrich the knowledge of our students. We have a separate department library for the reference of faculty and students. We have well qualified and dedicated faculty members to guide the students to develop their technical skills. The periodic maintenance activities of our lab assistants keep machineries fit and in good working condition.
