Mechanical engineering is known as the evergreen branch among all the other branches of engineering. Traditionally, mechanical engineers have to deal with concepts such as thermodynamics, robotics, kinematics, designing of mechanical elements, fluid mechanics and manufacturing science with their applications in Manufacturing sector, Automotive Sector, Aerospace, Thermal Power Sector, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Sector.

Through the excellence of its people, the Mechanical Engineering Department of Smt. Indira Gandhi College of Engineering will be recognized as a leader of its discipline in a manner that exemplifies the traditions of learning, discovery, and engagement. The department will be a desirable place to study and work, with our community comprising the best and the brightest, because of educational programs grounded in the mechanical engineering sciences and set within the context of meeting important societal needs. Major subjects include fluid mechanics, thermodynamics & heat transfer, materials engineering, manufacturing, energy systems, dynamics & control, Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM), finite element analysis, mechatronics, robotics and others.


The Mechanical Engineering Department endeavors to be recognized for outstanding education leading to employable engineers to shoulder the responsibilities of transforming the nation.

  • Create competent Mechanical Engineering graduates by providing excellent infrastructure and facilities.
  • Develop industry ready multifaceted graduates by promoting Industry-Institute Relations.
  • To provide the students with academic environment of excellence, leadership, ethical guidelines and lifelong learning
  • PEO-1: To train students with practical skills and experimental practices related to core and applied areas of mechanical engineering.
  • PEO-2: To prepare Learner to use modern tools effectively in order to solve real life problems.
  • PEO-3: To train the students to analyse the real life problems with industrial visits, vocational trainings, and guest lecturers covering different practical aspects of mechanical engineering.
  • PEO- 4: To guide students to conduct themselves in a responsible, professional and ethical manner.
  • PSO 1: The student will be able to apply the knowledge of Mathematics, Sciences and engineering fundamentals to formulate, analyse and provide solutions to the problems related to Mechanical engineering.
  • PSO 2: The students will be able to successfully apply the principles of design, analysis and implementation of mechanical systems/processes which have been learned as a part of the curriculum.

There is wide scope of job avenues for Mechanical Engineers in India. Few job avenues are highlighted below:

  • Aerospace industry - researches, designs, manufactures, operates and maintains aircraft
  • Automotive industry - designs, manufactures, distributes and markets motor vehicles
