At present the Department offers both undergraduate and postgraduate courses in various facets of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering. The Department offers Master of Technology courses in Machine Design Engineering, Production and Industrial Systems Engineering, Thermal System Engineering, and Welding Engineering. The Department has also started M.Tech programme in CAD, CAM and Robotics from the year 2005. The Department has laboratory and workshop facilities with modern sophisticated equipment to carry out research in all areas related to Mechanical and Production & Industrial Engineering. The faculty actively participates in sponsored research and consultancy work. Click here for more information
