Department of Mechanical Engineering is one of the biggest and oldest departments of Sagar Institute of Science & Technology (SISTec) Gandhi Nagar, Bhopal. Department is currently running both UG and PG programme to the young and aspiring minds of the Nation. The objective of the department is to inculcate the professional and engineering skills to the students as per the current industrial needs and to impart the utmost level of technical education. Department of mechanical engineering is committed to produce competent and vibrant technocrats ready for industries.
A famous quote by Henry Petroski, an American engineer and Professor at Duke University is “Science is about knowing; Engineering is about doing.”
Department activity is not only limited to the curriculum of the university but we develop the engineering aptitude in the students by conducting various module sessions, value addition courses and hands-on-experiences in diversified areas during the course. We conduct industrial visits to the students at least twice in a semester where they can interact with the peoples, learn from them and can have a look the new technologies and current trends. This type of regular practice develops the professional ethics and seriousness for their profession. We also promote research and development activities by providing a National level platform ‘Nirmaan’ to the students every year where students can showcase their talents in the form of working models.
Under the guidance of our professor’s, students have developed test-rigs for heat exchanger and IC engine. Students of both UG and PG can explore their engineering skills on these test-rigs in the form of major projects and dissertations. Recently, we have developed a Battery Operated Vehicle. This was undertaken as a major project by our final year students.
A 24 x 7, full-fledged laboratory facility with modern equipments is available to the students. To monitor the individual performance of the students we have strong Tutor- Guardian System. Students can share their professional and personal issues anytime with their TG’s. We have also well designed academic assessment system for the students. We believe on the concept Home-away-from Home and ensure that the students are comfortable and are provided with an affable environment to pursue their studies. We follow the student-centric approach in which attention is given on the development of technical skills both in the form of theory and practical which ultimately leads to mould the student to work on design and application in the field of recent trends in diversified sectors like energy sectors, automobiles, Mechatronics, and many more.
Employability is the centre of attention at this department. We have a specially designed module by leading industry experts and academicians which focuses on multidimensional development and grooming of the students for their future endeavors.
