At the Department of Mechanical Engineering, we are conscious of the fact that Mechanical Engineering, as a discipline, is the traditional bed-rock of engineering. It is thus all−encompassing, based on well−established laws of nature which are used through ingenuity to design and operate functional products. These products can be basic, such as pulleys and gears; conventional, such as engines and power-producing systems; or advanced, such as control and automation systems for vehicles and machinery. In spite of being one of the oldest engineering streams, mechanical engineering has undergone massive modernization due to rapid advances in electronics and computer technologies.

The scope has thus expanded from traditional areas to hi−tech areas for mechanical engineering students. They must thus integrate technologies rather than remain isolated. This requires a multi-disciplinary outlook, which we have been careful to incorporate into our syllabus while maintaining the conventional structure. The curriculum is thus based on core areas, which include thermofluids and thermal sciences, engineering design and analysis, dynamics and controls, CAD/CAM, and manufacturing/production engineering and management. These are based on core areas of basic sciences such as engineering mathematics and physics. Incorporating courses in computer simulation, computer aided engineering, production tooling and automation, optimization, and modelling and simulation achieve modernization of the syllabus. Classroom teaching is fortified by experiments conducted in well−equipped labs with state−of−the−art machinery.
