Message for Students

Dear Students,

Welcome to mechanical engineering at Uka Tarsadia University. Our graduates can work in almost every technology-based industry: automotive, electric power, space and aerospace, steel and materials, bioengineering, chemical and petro-chemical, robotics and manufacturing, pulp and paper, and textiles.

Our goal for undergraduate students is to give them a high-quality engineering education that includes hands-on experience. Each of our faculty members is ready and willing to work in their research specialty with capable students on individual projects. Our faculties have two major areas of research: thermal systems and mechanical systems. Both areas strongly support the growing automotive and manufacturing economy in the state and the region. In the last 4 years, more than 50 small, medium and large scale industries have been approached for industrial visits, tour and training. As can be seen, we genuinely care about our students and their future.

There are numerous opportunities for our students to participate in student organizations. The American Society of Mechanical Engineering and the Society of Automotive Engineers' student sections have been among the most active in the country during the past few years. We strive to ensure that all our undergraduate students have a strong education with teaming and leadership skills, involvement in student activities, and the practical background of co-op and internship experience. We believe that emphasizing these areas will make our students well qualified to take leadership roles in the future.

We also deliver a short term module training programme in fabrication sector. The institute has recognized as Vocational Training Provider in 9 treads of fabrication sector by government of India as well as Gujarat. So far 450 students of nearby village have been trained in last 4 years.

Whether you are a current or former student, a potential student, or a visitor, please feel free to contact or visit us. Again, welcome to the CGPIT.
