Established in the year 2003, the Department of Mechanical Engineering at GGITS has developed from an undergraduate program with an intake of 60 students to one of the marquee programs in the Institute with over 500 students pursuing 4-year B.Tech and 2-year M.Tech (with specializations in Advanced Production System and Machine Design) programs. The Mechanical Engineering programs (UG) have been accredited by the NBA, awarded for 2 years w.e.f.July 2015. The Mechanical Engineering department has also steadily progressed financially with the funds acquired for research growing every year.
The Department has acquired research projects from year 2012. The research in the Department is concentrated mostly in three thrust areas namely Design of machine components, CFD and Metal cutting, while Supply Chain Management, Material science and Tribology have also evolved into areas of research. The faculty of the Department closely interacts with the industry in keeping up with the latest trends in research and development as well as the training of the students and development of curriculum in accordance with the global trends. The department offers its faculty several facilities for initiating and sustaining research activities by providing access to the latest books, journals, software and equipment required. The curriculum of the department academic programs is being subjected to continuous assessment by keeping in view the latest trends and developments around the world.
The Department has state-of-the-art labs and infrastructure to facilitate students in acquiring hands on experience in addition to classroom learning. Further, students are encouraged to organize/participate in technical fests and other academic activities in accordance with SAE India, guidelines to develop leadership skills. Though most of the graduating students get offers from the leading industries in India/abroad, the department of Mechanical Engineering strongly recommends the continuation of education and the development of research skills of the individuals. As such, a significant number of GGITS Mechanical Engineering Alumni are scattered across various Universities around the world as students/faculty and also occupy substantial positions in various organizations/industries globally. At present, over 500 undergraduate and 36 graduate students are enrolled in various programs offered by the department. The undergraduate curriculum requires mandatory completion of all the theoretical and laboratory courses offered by the department irrespective of the area of specialization. In addition to academics and research, the department focuses on guiding the students towards discipline and responsibility, thus aiding in the development of model citizens for the society.
