Program Specific Outcomes (PSOs)
Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest and oldest branches of engineering. Mechanical engineers are involved with the design, analysis, testing, manufacturing, control, operation, and maintenance of mechanical systems - that is, any system that has moving parts.Some of the most common job functions of a mechanical engineer are:
In most of these areas, the mechanical engineer’s goal is to harness or create energy in machines such as boilers, air conditioners and refrigeration equipment. Product design is about designing and manufacturing tangible products, such as engines, personal computers and dishwashers. Mechanical engineers must be comfortable making decisions. They decide the size, material and shape of every part of a machine or mechanical device. Some decisions are critical to human life, such as those concerning the safety features of an industrial machine or a consumer product.
Departmental FDP had been conducted in the month of May in 2018. All the faculties took active part in the FDP. Every one come up with a unique topic and gave valuable information about that particular topic. The FDP was organized in a course of a week.
