The Department of Applied Mechanics was initiated in 1995 with the objective of making it function as a service department to all engineering students for teaching common subjects like Engineering Mechanics, Engineering Graphics etc. The Department offers a Bachelor’s Programme in Engineering in all branches of Applied Mechanics and at the moment has three full time faculty members.

The department is aiming at the active interaction between Institute and Industry to make the course perfectly suitable for the vertical as well as the software industry. Effective course structures have been designed after interactions with other premier institutes like IIT-Delhi, IIT-Kharagpur, Jadavpur University and B.E. College Shivpur.

Postgraduate Programmes

From July 1999, the Department started a full time ME programme in Computer - Aided Analysis & Design. The programme has got the AICTE approval in September 2004 with intake capacity of 18 students per year. It is an inter disciplinary programme, conceived and designed to meet the demand for trained manpower in the area of Design and allied disciplines for Indian Industries. Valid qualified GATE score holders may get AICTE scholarships subjected to the availability of scholarship funds.

Doctoral Programmes

The Department also offers PhD programmes in the core areas of Solid Mechanics, Materials, Bioengineering, Nanomaterials & Nanotechnology, Smart Materials, Dynamics & Vibration and Design.


The Department has well equipped Computer - Aided Design & Drafting laboratory with latest state-of-the-art software tools and a state-of-the-art Dynamics & Vibration laboratory to serve its ME and Ph.D. students. The Students can also use several other laboratories under common facilities to suit their academic needs.
