School of Mechanical Engineering produces graduates who can meet the rapidly changing needs of industry which demand new skills. It has an ambience and specialized laboratories for Research and Development. Even undergraduate students get opportunity to involve themselves in high-end research work to build skills beyond curriculum. In addition to classes, the School organises regular Visiting Lectures delivered by Industry Experts and arranges industrial visits for both faculty and students. As a placement support, it offers certificate courses to students during summer vacation in the areas of Quality Engineering and Management (TQM, TPM, Six Sigma, Optimization Techniques, FMCA/FMECA, Maintainability issues) and Mechatronic (Hydraulic / Pneumatic circuit design, Process Control Technology). The School is also actively engaged in organizing international and national level conferences.
Current consultancy and research & development areas of the School include residual stresses in fusion welded structure, surface finish optimization by high pressure impingement cooling and CAD modelling. Material processing technology, cleaner manufacturing technology and, quality engineering and management are the other areas of interest. Research and development efforts of the School are supported by bodies like AICTE and DST, Govt. of India.
