Department of Mechanical Engineering

Overview of the Department

Welcome to the Mechanical Engineering Department, one of the foremost departments set up by the University when it was established as a Technical School in 1949.

The department combines broad-based teaching and learning in engineering science with a strong inclination to quantitative problem-solving designs with an emphasis on analytical and creative designing methods, and vehicular exploration.

The Mechanical engineering department has re-oriented its curriculum to train students under the department to become international leaders in the Mechanical Engineering profession, industry, research laboratories and academia.

The department provides students with adequate practical and theoretical training and research based mechanical engineering to enable students to flourish and meet the demands of the fast changing global industrial environment.
