The presence of well equipped laboratories and highly qualified faculties makes it one of the best centres for mechanical engineering in eastern India. The department plays an important role on the academic development of the institute.Apart from academics, the students are also trained in various fields of mechanical engineering by hands on experience in workshops. With well equipped laboratories and guides, students get to know the real situation of industries, learn the working principles of various types of machines and equipments and do trouble shootings.Students are encouraged to do research and develop models in field of mechanical engineering. They are trained in machine design, working of I.C. engines, Thermodynamics, etc. though practical models and simulation.
