The students are exposed to state of the art practical training in laboratories, linked to the theory subjects listed above.  The First Year students also attend Physics, Chemistry and Computing Laboratories and Workshops. Furthermore, special soft skill classes, finishing school, short-term courses are conducted at regular basis. Experts from Industries are engaged for this purpose.

Laboratories under Mechanical Engineering Department

Engineering Mechanics: Several Innovative Experiments have been designed enabling students to acquire basic knowledge of Engineering Mechanics.

Basic Thermodynamics:  Ergonomically designed models ( two strokes and four strokes C.I. & S.I. engines, different types of boilers, Boilers mounting and accessories, special engines-Wankel engines and Turbojet engine) being displayed describing basics of the Thermodynamics.

Theory of Machines: Models of mechanisms, brakes, clutches, different types of gears, governors and working models of universal governors, balancing machines, epicyclic gears and belt drives, where students perform hand on experiments.

Fluid Mechanics: Eight experiments including Vortex flow, Reynolds’s number, Pipe friction, Metacentric height, Bernoulli’s Apparatus etc. has been installed where students have to perform experiments.

Heat Transfer: Seven experiments including heat transfer through solids, liquids, powder and composite walls. Stefenj-Boltzman’s Apparatus, heat pipe, demonstrations, emissive Apparatus are being conducted by students.

Instrumentation: Seven experiments based on pressure, temperature, speed, torque, displacement, strain & load are being performed in this lab.

Applied Thermodynamic Engineering: Models of Gas Turbines, Hydraulic Turbines, Steam Engine, I.C. Engine (Petrol & Diesel)

Solid Mechanics: UTM (Universal Testing Machine), Rockwell Hardness Tester, Brinell Hardness Tester, Torsion Tester are available in the solid mechanics lab

Solar Energy Lab: Solar Energy meter, Photovoltaic Panel, Inverter etc. are available in solar Energy Lab

IC Engine Lab: Two experiments including Morse Test and Fuel consumption Test on two engines installed in the Lab.
