Mechanical Engineering

B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering

Why take this course?

Mechanical is a discipline that combines mechanical and electronic engineering that equips engineering aspirants with skills to design, construct, and run factory production lines and automated processes. The future engineers are trained to use their skills in computers, micro-controllers, programmable logic controllers, programming, industrial sensors, hydraulic, pneumatic, and electric drives, the design of mechanical structures, mechanisms, and comprehend the knowledge of manufacturing processes.

B. Tech degree in Mechanical Engineering with a specialization in Mechanical is the study of the moving parts that drive robots, electronics, and machines. This 4-year course primarily focuses on core concepts of mechanical engineering coupled with aspects of developing novel products based on mechatronic principles. Candidates study electronic and mechanical systems, process control and instrumentation, robotics, and automated manufacturing. As a broad academic discipline, it embraces mechanical engineering, manufacturing, electronics, and computer technology.

Program Features
  • Hands-on operating experience with pneumatics, hydraulics, electricity, and manufacturing of mechanical parts and machines
  • Awareness of control system topics like creation, repair, and troubleshooting of electrical, thermal, flow, and mechanical systems and acquaintance with the technology used in computer, mechanical, electronics, and control systems
  • Familiarity with computed numerically controlled (CNC) machines, conveyor belts, robots, and other machines used in manufacturing
  • Ability to examine the reliability of machines and products, understanding of manufacturing techniques, testing, and diagnosing faulty manufacturing components and consideration of environmental factors

The Department of Mechanical Engineering, FET – Jain (Deemed – to be – University), houses, “State of the Art – Toyota Engine Lab”. The facility was developed in collaboration with Toyota Kirloskar Motors Pvt Ltd. Today extensive research is being carried out in the area of engine technology to address the concern of global warming due to pollution. At Jain, we have housed this facility to promote training and research in engine technology.

The facility aims to provide:

  1. Training in assembly of engines to the students
  2. Facility for students and research scholars to carry out projects in engine technology

Some of the featured equipment available in our lab are:

  1. Etios engine – 1496 cc
  2. Transmission system of Etios Liva

The facility provides an excellent opportunity to students to researchers to carry out their projects and break the path of innovation.
