Department of Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering Department is one of the earliest departments, established at the time of inception of the institute in the year 1995. The department currently runs undergraduate program and postgraduate programs in three specializations, which are approved by AICTE. B. Tech. in Mechanical Engineering and M.Tech in Advanced Manufacturing Systems, Automation , CAD/CAM
Additionally, Diploma in Mechanical Engineering is run in second shift with a strength of nearly 240 students.The strength of the department is 31 faculty members and 7 technical staff who are well qualified and experienced. The faculty and students are members of various national and international academic forums in science and engineering like ASME, ISTE, IEEE, SAE etc. Also various Certificate and Vocational courses are run to equip students with additional skills of relevance to industry. Regular seminars, conferences and workshops are conducted in the department wherein distinguished academicians and industry experts take part for the benefit of both students and faculty.
The state-of-the-art CAD/CAM Labs with computational facilities and resources both in terms of hardware and software is used by both UG and PG students. The 93 computing systems and workstations are loaded with wide range of software covering all areas of mechanical engineering, such as CATIA, IRONCAD, AUTOCAD, INVENTOR, ANSYS, EDGECAM, GIBBSCAM, MATLAB, FLEXSIM, AUTOMOD, MINITAB, CNC OFFLINE SIMULATION SOFTWARE etc.
The other laboratories, include Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulic Machinery, Thermal Engineering, Heat Transfer, Metallurgy and Instrumentation, Workshop, Production Engineering, Automation and Robotics, Machine Tools, Metrology etc., are well equipped to learn by doing. Continuous research is a norm in the department and the papers authored by faculty and students get published in leading national and international journals and are presented at several national/international conferences. We have a Centre of Excellence in the area of Joining Technology with several projects being carried out by the faculty.
Research activities are carried out in the various fields/areas of mechanical engineering. Automated Commando Training System, Formula Race Car, Hyrbid Go-kart, All Terrain Vehicle, Casting Simulator, machining of super alloys, micro-machining, two phase fluid flow, minimum quantity lubrication, six sigma are few of the research projects carried out by the Department.
The students participate in various national and international competitions under the department student chapter ASME and have won various distinguisehd prizes and awards nationally . ASME chapter of the Department has designed and manufactured various differernt innovative projects over the years and have gained great stature. More details about ASME-VNR VJIET can be found at
The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers a very congenial environment for study, supported by stimulating education and research. The programs offered by the Department of Mechanical Engineering are intended to prepare students for successful careers and lifelong learning in mechanical engineering
