We have a strong undergraduate program in mechanical engineering, including a B. Tech. – M. Tech. dual degree program. At the postgraduate level, we offer M. Tech., M. Tech by Research and PhD degrees. The sanctioned students’ strengths of B. Tech., Dual Degree and M. Tech.,  are respectively 120, 40 and 30 per year. At present, the department has 26 PhD scholars. We have a sponsored candidate from research laboratory carry out his doctoral studies in our department. 

Our department offers IT enabled design and manufacturing-based engineering curriculum. The primary focus of our curriculum is to impart technical know-how to students, promote their problem solving skills and innovation of new technologies. Department offers large number of interdisciplinary  courses for providing cross cutting knowledge to the students to pursue their interest. The course contents are periodically updated for introducing new scientific and technological developments.  Undergraduate students are encouraged to undertake various research projects and encouraged to spend time in neighbouring industry.
