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.
