Mechanical Engineering - First Shift

About Department

Department of Mechanical accredited by National Board of Accreditation (NBA).

Manufacturing is the back bone of any industrialized society. Mechanical engineers are the driving force behind the design, evaluation, manufacturing and maintenance of various systems. Mechanical engineering in the current scenario not only revolves around basic areas like thermal engineering, material science, manufacturing technology, refrigeration and air conditioning, automobile engineering etc. but has rather become an inter disciplinary horizon of vast knowledge with limitless application areas.

The students of mechanical engineering are exposed to various courses designed to impart maximum practical based knowledge to master these budding engineers to work under challenging and dynamic environment. The students are trained on latest advances in technologies like nontraditional machining, CAD/CAM, Robotics, computer integrated manufacturing system etc.

Diploma in Mechanical Engineering to A.R. Kalsekar Polytechnic.

Diploma in Mechanical Engineering, a three year programme divided into six semesters, was added to the existing disciplines in the academic year 2005 -06 with a batch of 60 students. Since then the Mech. Dept has undergone rapid development in terms of its physical infrastructure and human resource. In the academic year 2012-13, the sanctioned intake was increased to 240 (180 in the 1st shift and 60 in the 2nd shift).

Key Objectives and Areas of Focus:

  • Inculcate strong technical skills to our students so that they become experts in identifying, formulating and solving engineering problems.

  • Encourage and mould the development of innovativeness and creativity in our students.

  • Equipped our students with strong communication and personnel skills so that they can work effectively and successfully in a team.

  • Ensure that our students understand the importance of professionalism and ethical responsibilities.

  • Enable the students to function effectively in multi-disciplinary teams.

  • Empower our students to work successfully and adapt with ease to challenging situations to meet organizational and societal requirements.

  • Instill a strong moral sense to our students so that they refrain from wrong and unethical behavior.

  • Provide motivation and aid to needy students in terms of counseling, scholarship, book bank facility etc.

Laboratory Infrastructure of Mechanical .Dept. :
