Welcome to the department of Mechanical Engineering. It gives me pride and pleasure to introduce this department. It was founded in 1994 with the inception of Lokmanya Tilak College of Engineering. At commencement there was only the B.E. programme in Mechanical Engineering (UG) with intake capacity 60 which increased to 240.The tradition of imparting Engineering education at LTCE dates back to more than two decades. The UG programme has been accredited by National Board of Accreditation. We aim to provide our students with a perfect blend of intellectual and practical experiences that helps them to serve our society and address a variety of needs. At the end of our program, students are prepared for entry-level work as a mechanical engineer as well as for the post-graduate study in mechanical engineering or in another discipline, where a fundamental engineering background constitutes a desirable foundation.
Our Laboratories have been very well established not only to cover complete syllabus but to motivate students to learn beyond the syllabus which definitely develops complete knowledge of the subject (both the practical and theoretical depth of knowledge) and develop skill sets of students to become promising engineers in future. We had entered into Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Industries and institutes for imparting latest technologies into academics. We conducted workshops with hands-on experience such as assembly and disassembly of IC Engines and compulsory industrial visits. The institute website provides a glimpse into the vibrant campus life. I look forward to welcoming all the prospective candidates to the department and LTCE.
