Dr. Kishore Debnath
Ph.D (IIT Roorkee)
The Department of Mechanical Engineering started functioning in July 2013. The department is offering a four-year B.Tech program in Mechanical Engineering with an intake capacity of thirty. Additionally, the department offers a two-year M.Tech program in the specialization ‘Fluids and Thermal Engineering’ and Ph.D. in various fields of Mechanical Engineering. The B.Tech program of the department is accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA). The students of the department are placed through the leading industries and join the internationally recognized institutions for higher studies. In 2023, 88.9% of B.Tech students who graduated have been placed in various organizations of repute. In the recent past, faculty from a foreign university visited the department to teach undergraduate students under the ‘Fulbright Fellowship’ program.
The basic aim of the department is to impart quality education to the students through the understanding of the basic principles and practices in mechanical engineering, which helps them to serve society and address a variety of needs. Another, objective of the department is to come up with interdisciplinary courses keeping in view the advancement of today's world in the fields of digital manufacturing, robotics, mechatronics, sustainable energy, etc., and to achieve the goal of NEP 2020. The department also promotes industry-academia collaboration so that both can complement each other in study, research, and overall development.
The department comprises bright, young, and highly experienced faculty members, along with adjunct faculty members. The major research areas in the department include Thermal Radiation with Participating Media, Fluidization, Industrial Fire and Toxic Gas Dispersion, Renewable Energy, Heat and Mass Exchangers, Turbulence Modeling, CFD, Hydraulic System, Design and Control, Alternative Fuels, Manufacturing Processes, Application of Soft Computing Techniques, Micro-Manufacturing, Development Processing, and Characterization of Advanced Materials, Reverse Supply Chain, Industrial Engineering etc. At present, the department has nine state-of-the-art laboratories, these are Fluid Mechanics Lab., Theory of Machine Lab., Thermal Science Lab., Strength of Material Lab., Material Science Lab., Metrology and Instrumentation Lab., Advanced Manufacturing Lab., Additive Manufacturing Lab., and Computational Lab.
A Centre of Excellence in education and research in the field of Mechanical Engineering and allied areas making its presence felt globally through the manpower produced and the knowledge and technologies created.
