Infrastructure / Facilities



Engineering Mechanics Lab

The Engineering Mechanics Laboratory is a subject which will help engineers to understand the application of theory that he has studied in practice by performing experiments and verifying results. Besides the above, the objective of the curriculum with effective skill will be developed in them to observe experimental data, and to analyze the results. These topics of this curriculum will certainly build their confidence in performing the utilization of principle of mechanics in engineering works.



Material Science & Testing Lab

All engineering materials used in structures & mechanisms must be known for their mechanical properties. In this lab the students are made conversant to the basic principles & testing methodologies for tests for tensile & compressive strength, toughness, hardness, torssional & bending strength

Heat & Mass Transfer Lab

Heat and mass transfer are the areas of engineering that address how quickly energy or material substances move from one place to another. Understanding these phenomena is essential to designing and analyzing heating and cooling operations, and most separation processes.

The Heat and Mass Transfer Laboratory offers experiments for boiling-film heat transfer, countercurrent heat exchange, thermal conductivity, home heating system design, and radiation. Mass transfer experiments include membrane separations and liquid-liquid extraction.

Measurement Metrology Lab

Metrology is the science of measurement. At the base of metrology are the definition, realization and dissemination of units of measurement the students need to understand the basic principles and uses of different types of precession and other measuring equipments. In the measurement & metrology lab the students are made convergent with all these equipments.

Dynamics of Machines Lab

An awareness of the way machines work is fundamental to most engineering courses. Students need to understand the principles of mechanical advantage, cams, vibration and mechanical movement to give them a solid foundation of knowledge about mechanical system behavior. This knowledge will serve them throughout their academic and future engineering careers. The Dynamics of Machines Lab teach the principles and theory of laws / principles in mechanical mechanism.

CAD/CAM Lab

It is a well known fact that the present era is of computers and the mechanical engineering is no exception.
