MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

Overview of the Department

Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest branches of engineering and is called an evergreen branch because of the steady demand for mechanical engineers from the industries.

Almost all the inventions of ancient period and modern era are direct contributions of Mechanical Engineering. It caters to Automobiles, Railways, Aviation, Thermal Power Plants, Hydro Power Plants, Textile, Petroleum, Chemical, and variety of other industries. The branch involves design, study, development and construction of nearly all of the physical devices and systems.

The Department along with its strong faculties provides an academic platform of international repute that is dedicated to train and build educated minds. We believe that besides learning from books and examples, learning practically help to achieve soundness of knowledge. With this view, the department operates with a prerogative of combining classroom teaching with the state-of-the-art laboratory facilities for all the subjects. Complete attention is paid towards the exercise of prudence and care in the management of resources to render basic and specialized engineering education necessary to keep pace with the present and emerging requirements of the society.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering, AKS University, Satna runs Diploma, undergraduate and post-graduate programs in the form of Diploma in Mechanical Engineering, B. Tech. and M.
