Mechanical engineering emerged as a field during the industrial revolution in Europe in the 18th century; however, its development can be traced back several thousand years around the world. Mechanical engineering science emerged in the 19th century as a result of developments in the field of physics. The field has continually evolved to incorporate advancements in technology, and mechanical engineers today are pursuing developments in such fields as composites, mechatronics, and nanotechnology. Today we found on the globe the majority of technical works are carried by Mechanical Engineering irrespective of the type of work. Mechanical engineering overlaps with aerospace engineering, metallurgical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, petroleum engineering, manufacturing engineering, chemical engineering, and other engineering disciplines to varying amounts. Mechanical engineers may also work in the field of Biomedical engineering, specifically with biomechanics, transport phenomena, biomechatronics, bionanotechnology and modeling of biological systems, like soft tissue mechanics. Since most of the works carried out by Mechanical graduates the demand for this branch has increased in the market since its inception.
The Mechanical engineering department was established in 2004 with intake of 60 undergraduate engineering students and 18 post graduate students specialization with machine design. The department is equipped with excellent infrastructure and dedicated team of highly qualified and experienced faculty members and with a mission to develop qualified and competent citizens through teaching and training.

Why Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical Engineering is …
…design, machines, materials, energy, engines, research,motor vehicles, aircraft, power plants, building energy systems, manufacturing systems, robots, machine tools, the Canadarm, instrumentation, invention, environmental protection, computer disk drives, combustion, boilers, reactor vessels, control systems, medical equipment, consulting, Mars rovers, consumer products, metals, plastics, management, artificial hearts, wind and tidal power, composite materials, locomotives, jet engines, manufactured goods, ships, creativity, electronic chips, satellites, computer components, carbon-fibre tennis rackets, solar panels, industrial supplies, smart structures…
This field encompasses a very broad range of subject areas, as mentioned above.They are involved in the production of metals and advanced materials, manufactured goods, electronic chips and computer components, machine tools and industrial supplies. Above all, Mechanical Engineering is a creative profession, with an emphasis on designing, simulating and improving the world we live in. Mechanical engineers are also concerned with energy resource production and utilization, environmental protection measures, and alternative energy systems such as solar, wind and tidal power. Mechanical engineers are versatile, and frequently take on inter-disciplinary projects which overlap with electrical, chemical and civil engineering.Mechanical engineers find employment in every branch of industry, including the aerospace, manufacturing, automotive, building systems, energy, chemical and high-technology, sectors, and they undertake work ranging from design and manufacturing to research, consulting and management. Because of the breadth of the field there is always a steady demand for mechanical engineers. Some of the graduates have also used their mechanical engineering education as a springboard to medicine, management, or other careers. The Mechanical Engineering undergraduate program is broadly based and covers all of the important areas of mechanical engineering: mechanics, materials, energy, machines, fluid dynamics, controls, and manufacturing. A strong curriculum with lots of design and hands-on laboratory work.
