Mechanical engineering is one of the most diverse engineering fields available, embracing many subfields and affecting all aspects of our lives.Mechanical engineers work on new machines, products and processes that hold the promise of better lives for all of us. They are concerned with both technological and economic aspects in the design, development and use of their products.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in September 2013. Since then, it has been offering BSc and MSc as morning programs containing course work along with final year projects. The Department is providing vibrant environment for studies, having qualified faculty and strong links to industry, with a vision to provide a modern world-class technical education in the age of urbanization and upward social mobility. The applications of mechanical engineering are quite diverse, including spacecraft, automobiles, energy and propulsion systems, machinery, manufacturing and materials processing.
The program continues to expand with the acceleration of technological development and mechanical engineers are engaged more and more in activities involving interaction with other disciplines. Mechanical engineers have bulk opportunities of employment within the country that is fast urbanizing. This program is running keeping in view the guidelines provided by the HEC/PEC.
The department aims to provide the students, fundamental mechanical engineering knowledge, skills and professional experience by imparting high quality education so that they may participate in industry and academics actively.
Mechanical Engineering Program Educational Objectives:
Following four program educational objectives (PEOs), form the basis of BSc Mechanical Engineering program.
PEO 1: Have strong competence in mechanical engineering resulting in successful careers.
PEO 2: Pursuing research and innovation and be able to provide technical solutions for engineering industry problems.
PEO 3: Leading or participating in efforts to address socio economic and technical challenges.
PEO 4: Enhancing their professional development and technical capability through continuing education.
Program learning outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the knowledge, skills and attitude that the students acquire while progressing through the program.
PLO 1: Engineering Knowledge: An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
PLO 2: Problem Analysis: An ability to identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
PLO 3: Design/Development of Solutions: An ability to design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
PLO 4: Investigation: An ability to investigate complex engineering problems in a methodical way including literature survey, design and conduct of experiments, analysis and interpretation of experimental data, and synthesis of information to derive valid conclusions.
PLO 5: Modern Tool Usage: An ability to create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modeling, to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations.
PLO 6: The Engineer and Society: An ability to apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solution to complex engineering problems.
PLO 7: Environment and Sustainability: An ability to understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development.
