Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering, a cross-disciplinary environment for education and research that reflects the evolving nature of field. From traditional topics like mechanical design and power generation to emerging areas such as biomechanics and culinary science. The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in 2008 with the inception of the Institute to cater to undergraduate education in the field of Mechanical Engineering with intake of 120 seats. It aims to produce quality professionals in Mechanical Engineering to compete globally and excel by carrying out basic and applied research in emerging areas by forging strong industry-institute interaction. 
          The engineering field requires a solid understanding of core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, materials science, and structural analysis. Mechanical engineers use these core principles along with tools like computer-aided engineering and product life cycle management to design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, motorized vehicles, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices and more.

Mechanical Engineering Department has different laboratories with state of art facilities. Fluid mechanics lab has all new comprehensive experimental set ups catering to the requirements of curriculum and above that.  The laboratories cater to the needs of mechanical students in the subject of fluid mechanics. It strengthens and broadens the students' knowledge of incompressible fluid mechanics. To provide hands-on experience with flows those are more complex, nonlinear, or unsteady than are typically studied in a lecture course. The laboratory is equipped with large number of equipment and experimental set ups to study the fundamentals and applied aspects of fluid mechanics. The setup comprise a verity of devices like Venturimeters, Orificemeter, notches, technique for the estimation of minor and major losses in the pipes, verification of Bernoulli’s Theorem, impact of jet on vane, etc. The fluid mechanic lab is for the students of fourth semester.

Properties of the materials are very important in the process of designing the durable components / machines / structures etc. These properties include mechanical properties, thermal properties, electrical properties, optical properties or magnetic properties or deterioration properties. Mechanical engineers are mainly concerned with the mechanical properties like strength, ductility, hardness, brittleness, toughness, creep, fatigue strength of the materials. These properties play an important role for the structures and components that are intended to sustain various type of loads under the given service conditions. Different applications need specific mechanical properties. Sometimes hardness is required at the surface of the components, like gears, to make them wear resistant and sometimes toughness is required to resist impact loading. This laboratory provides the know-how of the mechanical properties of the materials through various experiments on testing machines and equipment

   Mechanism and machine have considerable fascination for most student of Mechanical Engineering since theoretical principles involved have immediate application practical problem. The meaning of word ‘Machine’ given in oxford English dictionary is “an apparatus using or applying mechanical power, having several parts each with a definite function and together performing certain kind of work”. This definition indicates the importance of constrained motion and forces in design of different types of machine. Therefore, it is essential for mechanical engineering student to study basic concepts of machine related to relative motion and forces between various machine elements. To achieve this objective, two labs are set up in the department: a) Kinematics of machine. In this lab, students of mechanical engineering can learn about basic elements of machines through experiments. Kinematics of machine enables the students to study relative motion of different machine elements.This lab includes some attractive models of different types of gear such as model of spur gear, worm and worm gear, bevel gear. These models help the students to study the geometry of different types of gears. Thus, this lab enables the students to study the motion of different machine members without considering the forces.
