The Department of Mechanical Engineering was started in the year of 2011. The department conducts Undergraduate and Post-Graduate programs in Mechanical Engineering at present (i) B. Tech. in Mechanical Engineering (Intake: 30) (ii) M. Tech. in Mechanical Engineering (Intake :12), which are affiliated to Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Technical University (DBATU), Lonere, Dist.: Raigad. Our graduate and post-graduate students are highly sought by high-tech companies, prestigious universities. We are fortunate to be the center of choice for most of the students in this region. We have well qualified and dedicated staff and are known for its high academic standard, well-maintained, disciplined with complete infrastructure facilities. The dedication and hard work of the staff members have yielded fruitful results. The department has a student’s organization namely Mechanical Engineering Students’ Association (MESA), under which various events are conducted by students for the students. The department organizes various industrial visits, seminars and workshops for students. The Mechanical Engineering department rigorously follows the Outcome Based Education in their teaching-learning process. The use of NPTEL/QEEE videos for the students helps in improving the understandability of the students in the different subjects. Students are provided with an appropriate platform for their overall development in sports, cultural, curricular, technical activities. There are 10 laboratories in the department. A separate CAD/CAM/CAE laboratory has been developed with various advanced software packages such as CATIA, ANSYS, AutoCAD, MATLAB etc. The Department also has a well-equipped Mechanical Workshop for carrying out the practical training in Smithy, Carpentry, Welding, Fitting and Machining.
I am pleased to share that many of our students are consistently excelling through the Campus Placement activities sand getting placed in highly reputed companies. The department has signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with many industries offering opportunities to the students to work on live industry projects. We are committed to a complete and holistic development of students and to impart them a bright future.
