Mechanical Engineering (ME)

Mechanical engineers design machines, devices, and methods to solve problems. They understand the dynamics of mechanical devices and know how to control their operation. Transportation vehicles, methods of energy conversion, control systems, environmental systems, and manufacturing systems are just a few examples of mechanical engineers’ work.

Mechanical engineering course work has a solid core in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and the engineering sciences. Mechanical engineering is also computer oriented in that the computer is used extensively for problem solving and engineering design. At SVECW, we have Computer Aided Design and manufacturing facilities for the realization of student designs. The motto of SVECW mechanical engineering is to “Develop the strong core background and make the students marketable to local and national industries, government agencies, and graduate schools.

SVECW started Mechanical Engineering programme in 2009.The Faculty in the department are in the track of excellence in terms of qualification and experience. Coming from various reputed universities, industries and research oriented organizations, faculty are committed to the noble cause of teaching learning process synchronizing with their efforts.  

The curriculum places enormous emphasis on the laboratory component including project laboratory in addition to the more traditional components of classroom lectures, tutorials and assignments. Students get trained in analytical, simulation, design and development and experimental techniques in the Capstone Project. Apart from the core mechanical courses, students are given opportunity to study open electives to broaden their perspective of knowledge to work in multifunctional industrial and research projects. Our students are highly motivated by our faculty and the management to involve themselves in innovative research projects. Our students are developing good research skills, technical and managerial skills which help them to become good technocrats in the society.

The laboratories under various domains are fully equipped with up to date experimental facilities and machineries to train our students and to conduct research. Our students are trained in  Solid Edge design laboratory, AutoCAD, FEMAP, CAM EXPRESS and Ansys software.  They are also trained in characterizing the microstructure of materials using optical microscope interfaced with image analyzer, hardness tester after making heat treatment such as quenching and tempering, induction hardening and normalizing. These kinds of laboratory trainings are very essential to work in various industries. The project allows the students to develop innovative concepts such as robot, automated cars and solar powered equipments and alternate fuel development etc.


Based on the specialization of the members of the faculty, the discipline has been divided into six domains such as CAD and Automation, Machine Design, Manufacturing Engineering, Thermal Engineering, Automobile Technology, and Fluid Mechanics.  This allows the faculty to concentrate on their research and development activities in their chosen field as a team. They are encouraged to do research in the advanced technology and update their knowledge by attending seminars, conferences and faculty development programmes. The faculty is publishing high quality research papers in various reputed National and International journals.


The mechanical engineering program GOALS are to:

  • Create well-rounded engineers who possess theoretical and practical skills, and understand the significance of humanities and social sciences
  • Produce graduates who have the necessary teamwork and leadership skills to excel in multidisciplinary team environments
  • Develop innovative and creative thinking with an understanding of entrepreneurship.
  • Develop science, mathematics, analytical, computational, and experimental skills and apply them to formulate and solve engineering problems
  • Instill in students an appreciation of the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context, including the broad implications of professional ethics
  • Develop the flexibility to adapt to changing technology and an understanding of the need for continuous improvement and lifelong learning


These six goals manifest as the following program EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES, which state: SVECW Mechanical Engineering graduates will possess:
