Mechanical engineering is concerned with the management of people and resources, the creation and use of new technologies and the design and development of new materials, processes and products. This mostly involves 'things that move', such as motor vehicles, aircraft systems, engines, pumps, gas turbines, industrial plants, air-conditioning/refrigeration systems, manufacturing processes, building services and even components of nuclear reactor, space vehicles and missiles.
Core courses in both undergraduate and postgraduate programs explore fundamental principles governing energy conversion, fluid and solid mechanics, dynamics, and engineering design. Our programs focus on giving you a hands-on education with a solid theoretical foundation to best prepare you for broad career possibilities in the engineering fields. Elective courses are devoted to the creative application of these fundamental principles to solve modern technological problems. These include courses devoted to robotics and controls, modern manufacturing processes, advanced materials, non-linear vibration, numerical fluid flow and heat transfer, combustion and engines, alternative fuels, etc.
The following degree programs are actively pursued in Mechanical Engineering department.
Bachelor of Technology in Mechanical Engineering
At the undergraduate level, the department awards a Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech.) degree in Mechanical Engineering. In addition to rigorous courses, undergraduates complete a final year students design project, and are encouraged to participate in extracurricular student projects and competitions, and undergraduate research.

Bachelor of Technology – Master of Technology Dual Degree in Mechanical Engineering
The Bachelor of Technology – Master of Technology (B. Tech. - M. Tech.) in Mechanical Engineering is a five-year program comprising of ten semesters. Students spend their first seven semesters doing undergraduate courses together with the students of the B. Tech. programme, while the last three semesters are spent doing postgraduate courses and research work together with the students of the M. Tech. programme. Learn more:
Minor in Mechanical Engineering
The department of Mechanical Engineering offers minor in Manufacturing Sciences and Computational Techniques. Learn more:
Dual Major in Mechanical Engineering
The department of Mechanical Engineering also offers dual major in Mechanical Engineering for the students registered for its B. Tech. degree program. Learn more:
Master of Technology in Mechanical Engineering
The M. Tech. degree is intended for students with an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering or a closely related field. Students with undergraduate degrees other than Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering and who have completed standard entry-level math, natural science, and engineering fundamental courses may also qualify for the M. Tech. degree. Learn more:
Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
The program emphasizes PhD level study and research. Study for a PhD is approximately 20% course work and 80% research. PhD students can pursue on either a full-time or part-time basis. We also admit B. Tech. graduates in our direct PhD program. Learn more:
