DEPARTMENT OF MECHANICAL ENGG.
Highlights of the Department
Although the Department of Mechanical Engineering is at infant stage, but it has not only fulfilled all the requirements as laid down by BPUT but it has gone many steps ahead in providing facilities in terms of procuring modern machineries for work shop and setting up of a Auto Cad Centre. The Workshop is equipped with all kind of machines such as: Lathe, Milling m/c, Shaper, Grinding m/c, Drilling m/c, Power Hack-saw, Shearing Cutter, Slotting Machine, planer, Surface, Grinder, MIG Welding etc.
The department is headed by Dr. Parameswar dash whose research interest is FMS, Robotic assembly and recently a project report been submitted on staff development Program to AICTE, New Delhi for the grant of seven laks.
Scope of Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical engineering is concerned with the management of people and resources, the development and use of new technologies and the design and development of new processes and products, which mainly involve things that move, such as motor vehicles, aircraft systems, engines, pumps, gas turbines, industrial plants, air-conditioning/refrigeration systems, manufacturing processes, building services and even space stations. Mechanical engineers offer expertise in the fields of combustion, noise and vibration control, energy technology, control systems, robotics, quality management, bioengineering, aeronautics, fluid mechanics, water supply, mining, manufacturing, production planning, maintenance planning, consumer product design, pollution control and new materials.
They also build and test prototypes of their products in order to prove their designs. Mechanical engineers also have a key role to play in energy utilization and management recognizing their responsibility to the environment and society at large.
As a graduate from this degree, one will be in a position to apply for a variety of mechanical engineering roles in the following areas: in private industry designing, developing, manufacturing and maintaining products, equipment and machinery of all kinds; as a consulting engineer work may include building services, mechanical engineering, design, and in private industry and semi-state bodies power generation, transport, environmental technologies, etc.
