Mr.Mahesh Zope (I/C HOD)
The department of Mechanical Engineering started in the year 2018 with the intake of 60 seats. Mechanical engineering is the discipline that applies engineering physics, engineering mathematics, and materials science principles to style, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems. It’s one among the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines.
The infrastructure and laboratory facilities are developed beyond curriculum to provide conducive environment for students.
The engineering field requires an understanding of core areas including mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics, materials science, structural analysis, and electricity. Additionally to those core principles, mechanical engineers use tools like CAD, Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM), and life cycle management to style and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices, weapons, etc. It’s the branch of engineering that involves the planning, production, and operation of machinery.
The field has continually evolved to include advancements; today mechanical engineers are pursuing developments in such areas as composites, Mechatronics, and Nano-Technology. It also overlaps with Aerospace Engineering, Metallurgical engineering, manufacturing engineering, chemical engineering, industrial management, and other engineering disciplines to varying amounts. Mechanical engineers can also add the sector of biomedical engineering, specifically with biomechanics, transport phenomena, Bio-Mechatronics, Bio-nanotechnology, and Modelling of biological systems.
The students are motivated to participate in co-curricular as well extra-curricular activities for overall grooming of students. We have professional bodies such as ISTE under which we conduct various activities to provide platform for overall development of the students. We organize seminars, workshops, industrial visits, guest lecture so that students will become well versed with current technological development.
To be a successful engineer, one has to be constantly updated with the emerging trends and technologies in the industry. Remember, learning is a lifelong process.
