B.E | Mechanical Engineering

Course Overview

Who should study Mechanical Engineering?

If you have an interest in manufacturing, if you love doing work on engines, or if you have an aptitude for drawing then Mechanical Engineering might be your calling. In this field, you will have ample opportunity to demonstrate your skills in the lab. You will learn the fundamentals of mechanical engineering, and be exposed to diverse areas such as mechatronics, aeronautical, MEMS, automobile, etc.

What will I study in the course?
As a student of mechanical engineering, you will find yourself deep-diving into this core technical field that deals with various subjects broadly classified into the design, thermal and manufacturing streams. Students will learn CAED / CAM, knowledge of which is essential nowadays for operating conventional CNC (computer-aided numerically-controlled) machines. With an understanding of CAEM, students will be able to work on these machines. As early as the first year, students will get a real taste for the basics of mechanical engineering as they delve into 2-D drafting.

What will I do once I graduate?
Mechanical Engineering creates a base for students who aspire to lead their career in the fields of Design, Materials, Manufacturing, CAD/CAM/CAE, Automation, Mechatronics, FEM as well as managerial aspects of industry. Mechanical Engineering graduates are sought after by employers in most sectors of the Engineering industry including Aerospace, Automobile, Chemical, Construction, Defence, Industrial Electronics, IT, Materials, Pharmaceutical, Railways etc.

The majority of our students go on to pursue careers in the field, and end up working for core companies such as Bosch-Group, Ashok Leyland, Volvo etc., Companies like Sony and Amazon, although not core mechanical companies keenly look to hire mechanical engineers for specialized work. Some students also go on to pursue higher studies in the field, and research work. The opportunities for mechanical engineers are vast and exciting!

Course Structure

1st Year Common Curriculum
In the first year of this UG Engineering Course, all students are divided into two groups. One group goes through the Physics Cycle and the remaining go through the Chemistry Cycle. The subjects taught in both cycles are the same, but the order is different.

*Year 1 course structure shown below is for the Physics Cycle. For Chemistry Cycle, the subjects taught are the same, but the subjects for each semester are swapped. Please click here for 1st Year Syllabus.

Evaluation Criteria

TESTS

  • The Continuous Internal Evaluation (CIE) is prescribed for maximum of 40 marks. Marks prescribed for test shall be 30 and for assignment is 10. The CIE marks for test in a theory Course shall be based on three tests and generally conducted at the end of fifth, tenth and fourteenth week of each semester. Each test shall be conducted for a maximum of 30 marks and the final marks shall be the average of three tests. However, to support slow learners, improvement tests will be carried out to help them gain the average. The remaining 10 marks shall be awarded based on the evaluation of Assignments/ Unit Tests/ written quizzes that support to cover some of the Course/programme outcomes. Final CIE marks awarded shall be the sum of test marks and assignment marks making a maximum of 40 marks.
  • In the case of Practical, the CIE marks shall be based on the laboratory journals/records (30 marks for continuous evaluation based on conduct of experiment, viva and report writing and one practical test (10 marks) to be conducted at the end of the semester.
  • The IA marks in the case of Mini Project (in 5th Semester), Projects and Seminars in the final year shall be based on the evaluation at the end of 8th semester.

ASSIGNMENTS

  • Assignments are given to students after completion of each unit of the syllabus and comprehensively cover all of the important aspects of each topic in a particular unit.
  • Completing the prescribed assignments will greatly help students prepare for the internal assessments and the final exams. All the assignments will be evaluated and based on the performance of the students marks will be awarded for each course.
  • The Student Assistant for the course will neatly script solutions to assignments, and after due checking and correction by faculty, these solutions will be scanned and made available on the faculty webpage for all students to access and download.
