At present, it offers undergraduate programme, B.E. in Mechanical Engineering with a sanctioned intake of 120 students. The Department aims to attain excellence in academic teaching and learning, research and extension activities. The areas of research focus include design, manufacturing, materials and thermal engineering.

The Department emphasises on modern laboratories to cater the needs of academic and research activities. It is well equipped with computational facilities and resources both in terms of hardware and software. The Department constantly facilitates students from other departments of the Institute as a gesture of support to their academic, co-curricular and research desires.

The Department has an active students’ technical association namely “Mechanizo”. It disseminates knowledge through various activities like special lectures/workshops/seminars/conference, competitions, technical quiz by eminent practitioners of the profession. Regular industrial visits/training/Internships to bridge the gap between theoretical and practical knowledge are arranged.

The Department involves in value added courses and international certification programmes in association with leading training providers in the areas of drafting, modelling, simulation and analysis of engineering systems during semester holidays. The faculty members consistently interact with technical societies, to promote innovation and enrich the knowledge, skill and behaviour of students. The Department encompasses professional associations such as Society for Automotive Engineers (SAE), Institution of Engineers (IE), ISTE chapters, ISHRAE which provides students a platform to acquire various hard and soft skills.
