Department of Mechanical Engineering
The department of Mechanical Engineering was established in 1994, having illustrious history and offers Bachelor of Engineering, Master of Engineering and Doctoral degree programme. The department is vibrant with several activities round the year. We have research focus that benefits industry, society and the environment. The department is fortified with highly motivated faculty members, who besides their regular activities of teaching, do research and interact with industries. Faculties are actively involved in different sponsored projects funded by University of Mumbai, ICMR, SERB and most of our projects are sponsored or implemented in various industries.
The Department is well equipped with state-of-the-art laboratories and infrastructural facilities in thrust areas. It has advanced laboratories of Manufacturing, Thermal Engineering, Fluids Engineering, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, latest tools in the work shop, welding shop and carpentry. It also has seven advanced computing centres with software in Finite Element Analysis and Modeling, Automation etc.
The department is headed by Dr. Chandrababu Divakaran with thirty years teaching experience. His area of interest includes Supply chain Management, Knowledge Management, Renewable Energy Sources. Mechanical Engineering Student Association (MESA) was formed to accelerate academic activities of students and faculty. The MESA organises technical activities like seminars, student competitions and Industrial visits at regular intervals for the benefit of the students. Also, the department takes pride in achievements of its alumni, who have established themselves in various walks of life.
The vision of the Mechanical Engineering Department is:
To be recognized as a provider of proficient Mechanical engineers, contributing to society as Leader, Technocrat, Creator and Educator.
