Department of Mechanical/Automobile/Mechatronics Engineering

About the Department


Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in 2010 to accomplish the necessity of competent Mechanical engineers in the current phase of infrastructure development in the state as well as nation. To realize, the curriculum has been designed with close interaction of faculty members with the experts from the industries.

To have hands-on experience, laboratories are developed indigenously. The department owns laboratories in the area of Fluid engineering, Thermal engineering, Mechanical Measurement, Manufacturing engineering, Automobile engines, Automobile systems etc.

In favor of the overall development of students, the department follows holistic approach that incorporates career counseling, industrial tour and professional society related exercises along with academic activities. Faculty members are well qualified and acquainted with industrial practices. Industrial affiliations are established by signing MoUs (Memorandum of Understanding) with some industries in the areas like fabrication, process, automobile and manufacturing.

The department aims to be comprehensive of all segments of the society by providing educational courses of ITI, B. Tech., M. Tech. and Ph. D.

Message for Students

Dear Students,

Welcome to the Department of Mechanical/Automobile Engineering CGPIT, UTU Maliba.We started our journey in the year of 2010. Over the last decade, we have grown our expertise and competence in the core Mechanical/Automobile Engineering curriculum and research to accomplish the necessity of competent Mechanical/Automobile engineers in the current phase of infrastructure development in the state as well as nation. We have diploma and undergraduate program in Mechanical/Automobile engineering. At the post graduate level, we offer M. Tech. in Thermal System Design and Automobile engineering. The PhD program is also offered in the department. The department has started B.Tech programme in Mechatronic Engineering from this year (2018).

The primary focus of our curriculum is to impart technical know-how to students, promote their problem-solving skills and innovation of new technologies. Department offers large number of optional courses for providing wide spectrum of options to the students to pursue their interest. The course contents are periodically updated for introducing new scientific and technological developments.

To have hands-on experience, laboratories are developed indigenously. The department owns laboratories in the area of Fluid engineering, Thermal engineering, Mechanical Measurement, Manufacturing engineering, Automobile engines, Automobile systems etc. Center of excellence developed by BOSCH is started and training is provided to the seekers from the institute as well as from outside. The department has well equipped workshop facility with Lathe, Drill Machine, Shapers, TIG, MIG, Gas welding, casting, CNC and Wheel alignment and balancing setups with advance technology.

In favor of the overall development of students, the department follows holistic approach that incorporates career counseling, industrial tour and professional society related exercises along with academic activities. The Department has 70 faculty members out of which 5 are PhD, 10 are PhD pursuing and rest are well qualified, experienced and acquainted with industrial practices. Most of our faculties are gold medalist of their respective specialization. Industrial affiliations are established by signing MoUs (Memorandum of Understanding) with some industries in the areas like fabrication processes, automobile and manufacturing.

The department aims to be comprehensive of all segments of the society by providing educational courses of Diploma, B. Tech., M. Tech. and PhD.Our department looks forward to contribute in solving the technological challenges of the society with active participation from all sections of the society.

Thank you for visiting us.

Best wishes,
