Mechanical Engineering Course

Why study Mechanical Engineering?

If you have interest in the design, development, operation and installation of just about anything that as moving and rotating part then mechanical engineering could be the program of study for you.

Mechanical engineering is a most diverse and versatile of all the engineering disciplines which encompass key elements of aerospace, electrical, civil, chemical, material science and bio engineering. Mechanical engineering touches every aspects of modern life from mobile phone to aircraft, automobiles, bio medical devices and power plants. Mechanical engineers can be found in sales, engineering management and corporate management.

What would I study?

Our students have already learned science and maths in school which gives them an exposure to develop their knowledge about materials, solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, control, product design and manufacturing processes. Courses on communication, business and other social-sciences along with the technical subjects are designed to groom students with well-rounded perspectives, as well as the ability and flexibility to work in a various government and private sectors . Practical learning is integrated into the curriculum through B.E projects.

What are my career prospects?

The girth of the Mechanical Engineering degree offers a wide range of career opportunities. The key characteristics of the profession are its breadth, flexibility, and individuality. The career paths of mechanical engineers are largely determined by individual choices, a unique advantage in a dynamic world. Mechanical engineers are capable of working in a wide variety of industry sectors, and new modern technologies will create industries that don't exist today. Mechanical engineers are no longer confined to the traditional industries of aerospace, automotive, and manufacturing, but are also employed extensively in important emerging areas, such as nuclear technology, robotics, biomedical technology and energy systems. Furthermore, our students acquire valuable skills in creative thinking, critical analysis and teamwork, which are highly sought after in any engineering industry, consulting and management.

Evaluation Criteria

  • The Continuous Internal Evaluation (CIE) is prescribed for maximum of 40 marks. Marks prescribed for test shall be 30 and for assignment is 10. The CIE marks for test in a theory Course shall be based on three tests and generally conducted at the end of fifth, tenth and fourteenth week of each semester. Each test shall be conducted for a maximum of 30 marks and the final marks shall be the average of three tests. However, to support slow learners, improvement tests will be carried out to help them gain the average. The remaining 10 marks shall be awarded based on the evaluation of Assignments/ Unit Tests/ written quizzes that support to cover some of the Course/programme outcomes. Final CIE marks awarded shall be the sum of test marks and assignment marks making a maximum of 40 marks.
  • In the case of Practical, the CIE marks shall be based on the laboratory journals/records (30 marks for continuous evaluation based on conduct of experiment, viva and report writing and one practical test (10 marks) to be conducted at the end of the semester.
  • • The IA marks in the case of Mini Project (in 5th Semester), Projects and Seminars in the final year shall be based on the evaluation at the end of 8th semester.
  • Assignments /quizzes are given to students after completion of each module of the syllabus and completion of the syllabus is being taken care within the last working day.
  • Assignments/quizzes will be helpful for the students to prepare for the internal assessments and the final exams.
  • All the assignments will be evaluated and based on the performance of the students marks will be awarded for each course.
  • Neatly script solutions for assignments will be uploaded in the college Edumerge software ,so that students can access and download the same.
