Mechanical engineering is a broad discipline that applies the principles of engineering to design and construction of machines and their parts.
The modern world comes with a lot of moving parts. From the way that the clock on your wall ticks away the hours to the spinning of your car’s wheels on their axle, it takes many precise pieces and movements to keep things running smoothly. While it takes many hands and machines to put together something so complex as a car; those hands know what to do because of mechanical engineering.
Mechanical engineers work across a huge variety of industries conceptualizing, designing, and creating machines as well as their components. Though it is one of the oldest engineering disciplines, it is also one that continues to change and grow with advancements in technology making it a vibrant and exciting career path even to this day.
The department offers 4-year undergraduate (B. Tech) and 2-year postgraduate (M. Tech) programme. B.Tech. in Mechanical Engineering programme was started in the year 2010 with an intake capacity of 60 students which has now been increased to 120 w.e.f. the year 2012 academic session. The Mechanical Engineering Department played a leading role in evolving an 'Engineering Science' based curriculum and served as a role model for many academic institutes in the country.
The academic activities are supported by 18 laboratories. The laboratories and workshops in the department have the best equipment and are maintained impeccably. Constant and careful attention to the departmental infrastructure has immensely helped in keeping it up-to-date, thus equipping the students with the necessary tools to acquire technical know-how.
Teaching at the WCTM is highly practical and focused on what the industry needs as it is evolved through constant interaction with leading professionals who are a part of the industry and academics.
