About The Department

The Department of Engineering science (Mechanical and Civil) was started in the year 2003 and engaged in teaching first year engineering subjects like Elements of Mechanical Engineering, Computer Aided Engineering Drawing (CAED), Workshop LAB and Elements of civil engineering and engineering mechanics and are taken care by professionally qualified faculty members and skilled technical staff.


To create quality engineers with the knowledge of Mechanical and civil Engineering, this helps them to understand concepts in this area to develop creative ideas in technological advances.


  •  To inspire and develop innovative and pragmatic problem solving skills
  •  To encourage students to achieve superior proficiency
  •  To promote research & development activities and entrepreneurial qualities
  •  To endorse holistic personality development

About Course

The application base of mechanical and civil engineering field of studies is extremely broad and diverse and the scope in this area is continuously expanding beyond its traditional boundaries. Mechanical engineering is a discipline of engineering that applies the principles of physics, materials science and mathematics to the design, development, research, evaluation, manufacture, installation, testing, operation, maintenance and management of mechanical systems.

Distribution Of Course Content



Department Infrastructure

The department is fully equipped with the required facilities for effective delivery of lectures, state of the art computational facilities and laboratory facilities. In the first year of this UG Engineering Course, all students are divided into two groups. One group goes through the Physics Cycle and the remaining go through the Chemistry Cycle. Classrooms are used under both cycles. The subjects taught in both cycles are the same, but the order is different. At present the following laboratories have been established in the department.

Lab Facilities :

Lab 1: Odd/Even Semester


( 132 Sq-m )

Computer Aided Engineering Drawing Laboratory (CAED Lab)

  • This subject focuses on the fundamentals of engineering graphics and technology. In order to expose students to current industrial practices, students are trained on CAD software Solid Edge V 19.0 to practice 2D drafting. The lab is also provided with LCD projector facilities for the delivery of lectures.

Major Equipments :

  • Acer Make 15" TFT Monitor, CPU ( PIV, Intel 910 Gl Chipset Mother Board, 2.93 Ghz Intel Processor (R) , 256 MB RAM, 80 GB HDD, CD ROM, Acer Keyboard, Acer optical Mouse, HP to Laser Printer, UPS (6 KVA), Sketch Board. Total No’s: 40



Lab 2: Odd/Even Semester


( 200 Sq-m )

Workshop Practice Lab

  • The basic workshop practice helps students to understand the basic skills required for fitting, sheet metal work and welding. Students use various measuring instruments and tools to perform fitting and welding exercises. The lab also has drilling and grinding machines.

Major Equipments :

  • Bench Vice, Bench Grinder, Drilling Machine, Portable, Welding Machine, Drilling Machine, Surface Plate, Soldering Iron, Power Hack saw Machine. Total No’s: 30

HOD’S Cabin :


(12 Sq-m)

HOD’s cabin is also supported with Departmental Office (B-003BH) with an area of 12

 Faculty Room :


B-003B(20 Sq-m)

Staff room supported with necessary amenities. It can accommodate 3 faculty members.
