The Department of Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest and the largest department in terms of faculty, students and activities in engineering arena. In MPEC, the department has dedicated faculty members and adequate infrastructure to impart proper interaction. The results in the university examination have been excellent throughout. The department keeps updating labs in order to keep in pace with the recent trends.
The profession of Mechanical Engineering, second largest among engineering disciplines, involves the design, analysis, and manufacturing of machines. Central to the profession is the importance of innovation and creating new technologies and products. Mechanical engineers work in teams involved in designing jet engines; automobiles; aircrafts and spacecraft’s; microelectro mechanical acceleration and pressure sensors; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems; biomedical and biomechanical devices as artificial hip implants; and such integrated mechanical and electronic (mechatronic) systems as robots.Graduates in Mechanical Engineering will find employment opportunities in the diversified branches of the mechanical field. Mechanical engineers are employed in many types of manufacturing, fabrication, research and development, and service industries such as Railways, Aviation, Automobile Industry, Power plants, Manufacturing Industries e.g. Materials, refined metals etc.
Mechanical engineers are employed by small start-ups, multinational corporations, government agencies, national laboratories, consulting firms, and universities. They can work in areas of research, design, manufacturing, sales, quality assurance or management.
