About the Department

One of the founding departments of VSB College of Engineering Technical Campus, the Mechanical Engineering Department has played a leading role in evolving an ‘Engineering Science’ based curriculum. Today, the department of mechanical engineering of VSBCETC attracts and features an extraordinary rich diversity and quantity of talented individuals. The Department of Mechanical Engineering is established in the year 2012 and offers an UG Course, B.E. Mechanical Engineering with a Sanctioned intake of 60 Seats. The department is specifically concerned with design, development, installation, operation and maintenance of just about anything that has moveable parts. Mechanical Engineering discipline involves Analysis, Design, Manufacturing & Maintenance of Mechanical systems. Students of Mechanical Engineering are exposed to concepts in Mechanics, Kinematics, Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics, Energy conversion & conservation, etc. Wherever there is manufacturing process, a Mechanical Engineer will play a role. We edify our students to do even an ordinary thing in an extra-ordinary way, so that they contrive their new challenges, dream high and work hard with faith, concentration and determination.

About the Course

Mechanical Engineering addresses the analysis and development of technological systems involving motions and allows people to harness the energy and forces that exist in nature to provide for the needs of society.
Mechanical Engineers are responsible for the conception, design, manufacture, control, maintenance and management of such systems. Mechanical systems may comprise mechanisms or machines made up of moving components or involve fluid flow within or around solid structures to impart forces or energy interactions. These could range from micro-mechanical devices to massive power generating turbines. From a jet aircraft to an air conditioning plant, from tunneling machines to body-scanners and from a technical consultancy to financial services, mechanical engineers deal with the design and production of machines, systems and structures that are taken for granted in the modern world.
The range and diversity of career choice Mechanical Engineers is consequently tremendous.
