Department of Mechanical Engineering

Objectives & Outcomes

Program Educational Outcomes

The Mechanical Engineering program aims at

  • Preparing the graduates to have successful career in mechanical and associated industries or becoming an entrepreneur or pursuing higher education and research.
  • Developing ability to apply fundamental technical knowledge and skills to find practical solutions to technological challenges and problems in core and allied areas of mechanical engineering.
  • Complementing the class room teaching with live projects, field works, seminars to build self learning and lifelong learning capability and to develop out of box thinking. Also developing capability to adapt to evolving technological challenges, communicate effectively, work effectively as individuals and as team members and adhering to professional ethics.

Program Outcomes

# Program Outcomes
PO 1 Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
PO 2 Identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
PO 3 Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
PO 4 Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
PO 5 Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
PO 6 Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
PO 7 Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
