Mechanical Department

Mechanical Engineering Department is the largest Department of the Institute both in terms of intake of students and the size of teaching staff.  Recently the Department has got accreditation by the N.B.A., A.I.C.T.E., New Delhi SECOND TIME for its consistent quality-seeking approach towards dissemination of high-level technical knowledge.  Now the Department can also ask for funds for its ongoing and future research projects from government institutions.  The total intake capacity per year of the department is 120 students.  Apart from this 15 seats are available for first class diploma holders for admission directly into the second year.  Due to the large number of students, classes are conducted in two sections to improve the effectiveness of teaching and for better teacher-student interaction.   At the final year, free elective scheme is introduced as per the stipulations of the RTM Nagpur University.  Under this scheme, a student may choose one subject from each of the three groups of electives. This scheme gives wider scope for students to opt for subjects of their choice.  At present, two streams are offered viz.  Thermal Engineering and Production Engineering. A third stream-Design is likely to be introduced from the next academic year.

M.Tech HEAT POWER ENGINEERING


The department also offer TWO year full-time Master programme in HEAT POWERENGINEERING with intake capacity of 18 students, facilitates graduates diversifying into a wide range of specialties in the broad area of Thermal Energy. The course was started during 2010-11. This course provides a holstic approach to different aspect of energy generation and utilization using conventional and renewable sources of energy;energy audit , conservation and management;etc. Candidates with a Bachelors degree in Mechanical , Automobile and Aeronautical Engineering are eligible.

Project Work

Final year students, normally in a group of four, are assigned project work under the guidance of one faculty member. This work is done in the fields of solar energy, bio-gas, cryogenics, computerized solutions of mechanisms, Robotics etc., are given due stress. These projects involve both analysis and investigation loading to design solutions and also fabrication of designed components. Now, as per the revised pattern, the Nagpur University has changed creativity in designing and fabricating mini projects, generally models.

 
Industrial Tours

To have exposure to the industrial environment, the Department organizes visits to industrial premises.  This forms a part of the curriculum for the second year as well as the final year.  It has been made compulsory for each student to undergo industrial training for a minimum of 45 days.

 
Seminars

It is very essential that engineers should have excellent communication skills and expertise in certain chosen fields of engineering. To meet this objective the Department conducts seminars for the third and final year students. The student of third year deliver seminar based on their industrial training or literature collected on a certain topic, whereas the final year students do their industrial training or literature collected on a certain topic, whereas the final year students do the same as a part of their project work. Department also conducts lectures of soft skills development and career planning and prospects for third and final year students to polish their skills of communication thereby improving their employability.
