Mechanical engineering deals with designing & manufacturing of small individual parts & devices (e.g. micro scale sensors & inkjet printer nozzles) to large systems (e.g. spacecraft & machine tools). The role of a mechanical engineer is to transform an idea into a product having practical & commercial utility. The mechanical engineer needs to acquire specific skills & knowledge to accomplish the desired goals. The one skill that is a mechanical engineer’s exclusive domain is the ability to analyze & design objects & systems with motion. Mechanical engineers play a central role in such industries as automotive (car chassis & its subsystems-engine, transmission, sensors); aerospace (airplanes, aircraft engines, control systems for airplanes & spacecraft); biotechnology (implants, prosthetic devices, fluidic systems for pharmaceutical industries); computers & electronics (disk drives, printers, cooling systems, semiconductor tools); micro electromechanical systems(MEMS) (sensors, actuators, micro power generation); energy conversion (gas turbines, wind turbines, solar energy, fuel cells); environmental control (HVAC, air-conditioning, refrigeration, compressors); automation (robots, data & image acquisition, recognition, control) & manufacturing (machining, machine tools, prototyping, micro fabrication).

(B) Specialization in Automation and Robotics Engineering
With evolving new technology, like computer-aided simulation and 3-D printing, machine learning, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and sensing and data analytics, we are entering an era of automated industry of future, where products/services with zero defects will be produced. Automation is incomplete without robots. Today, industries are using collaborative robots (cobots), which can perform tasks next to human operator and have built in safety features.
Automation and Robotics is an interdisciplinary branch of engineering, which uses the knowledge of Mechanical engineering for designing and controlling of robot movement, Electronics and Communication engineering for data sensing and controlling and Computer Science and Engineering for programming and data analytics. In the scope of industrialization, automation is a step beyond mechanization.

To expose the students to the latest technology through laboratory experiments, industrial visits and industrial training in order to acquaint them with their responsibilities as an engineer and further to make them industry ready.
To develop an aptitude among the students to innovate and design automated engineering systems, based on industry needs.
To prepare skilled workforce in order to meet industry demand in research and development in the field of automation and robotics.
(C) Specialization in Rail Transportation
Rail transport is the most widely used mode of transport in India for both passengers & goods. With the introduction of high speed railway transportation systems, requirement of highly skilled manpower for smooth running of these systems has also increased. Imparting relevant knowledge of several disciplines in a planned & concise manner can produce such skilled manpower having expertise to contribute in different aspects of rail transportation such as, laying & maintenance of track, knowledge of rolling stock, power generation & transmission, signaling & control, communication & safety.
To fulfill these requirements, the University has pioneered to introduce a 4-year B.Tech degree programme in Rail Transportation Engineering interweaving the relevant contents of Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics & Communication Engineering & Computer Science & Engineering. A graduate from this discipline will have career opportunities in Indian Railways & its associates as well as in large number of ancillary industries, both private & public sector. The knowledge gained from this programme will also provide enough confidence to start-up entrepreneurial ventures to feed railway systems.
