About the Department


Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest engineering disciplines. Mechanical engineers design, develop, build and test. They deal with anything that moves, from components to machines to the human body. Mechanical engineering combines creativity, knowledge and analytical tools to complete the difficult tasks of shaping an idea into reality. Mechanical engineers can look for employment in diverse areas, including manufacturing, aerospace, automotive, biomedical, chemical, computer, communications, nanotechnology, power-generation industries, engineering consultancies, energy utilities. government agencies etc..

A Mechanical Engineer can also pursue his/her carrier in the public sector through competitive exams likes UPSC, MPSC, IES. They can have placements in various public sector undertakings like Navratna and Maharatna by scoring excellently in GATE. They are having good placement opportunities in National and Multi-National companies by perusing ME/M.Tech/MS in India and abroad. They can also become job providers themselves by turning into entrepreneurs and starting their own start ups.

The Mechanical Engineering Department at PCCOER has been established in the year 2014 and since then, has progressed steadily towards excellence. The Department works on Outcome Based Philosophy (OBE), wherein the complete focus of the department is to prepare the students in such a way that he/she is oriented towards acquiring knowledge, skills, hands on training and ICT techniques by using various teaching pedagogies, which will lead them toward better placements, higher education and entrepreneurships. The audits of all these initiatives are conducted on regular basis and its execution is checked to insure that students are getting really benefitted through the process.

The department runs a UG programme in Mechanical Engineering, which is a 4 years, 8 semester’s full time programme. Department has adequate number of faculty members and supporting staff, who are well qualified, experienced and dedicated. The department has well equipped 16 no. of state of the art laboratories, specious classrooms, drawing hall, project and innovation centre. The department provides the students with a strong fundamental, scientific and technical knowledge-base, multidisciplinary approach and critical thinking skills which serve as the foundation for lifelong learning in Mechanical Engineering. The department motivates and supports the students for Industry Sponsored Projects and Industrial Training so that they are well acquainted with the industrial problems and its solutions to be better prepared for the industries. The department also emphasizes on inculcating, professionalism, ethics and true attitude in the students. It also puts more efforts on strengthening communication skills, team work and social awareness among the students.
