Welcome to the Mechanical Engineering Department

At our department, we believe in equipping our students with a solid foundation in core mechanical engineering principles. Our comprehensive curriculum covers a wide range of topics, including Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Materials Science, Fluid Dynamics, Robotics, Engineering Mathematics and Manufacturing Processes. By combining theoretical instruction with hands-on laboratory experiences, we ensure that our students develop a deep understanding of the fundamental principles and gain valuable practical skills.

To complement the academic experience, we offer a range of extracurricular activities and opportunities for our students to apply their skills in real-world scenarios. Our department has strong ties with industry partners, enabling our students to participate in internships and collaborative projects. These experiences not only enhance their understanding of engineering practices but also provide valuable networking opportunities for future career prospects.

Our state-of-the-art facilities and well-equipped laboratories offer students access to advanced tools and technologies, allowing them to conduct experiments, design prototypes, and simulate real-world scenarios. We believe in hands-on learning and encourage our students to engage in practical projects that challenge their problem-solving abilities and foster innovation.
