The department of Diploma in Mechanical Engineering was established in the year 2012 with an intake of 60, followed by an increase to 120 in the year 2014. DME designed as a skill empower programme, to enable the students to keep pace with changing technological advances the students actually learn by doing and progress from basics to higher order skills like installation, maintenance and troubleshooting of machines. Diploma graduates can start entrepreneurial ventures or can pursue higher studies in national premier institutions.
The Diploma in Mechanical Engineering Programme deals with the study and applying the principles of physics and materials science for analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. This programme provides more accessible and quality education in Workshop and Production Technology, Engineering Mechanics, Engineering Drawing, Strength of Materials, Thermal Engineering, Hydraulics and Fluid Power Control Systems, Refrigeration and Air conditioning and Industrial Management and Smart Technologies and also get exposed to Basic Electrical and Electronics, Computer Aided Drafting and CNC and software like AUTOCAD. By the end of the programme student will be able to find job opportunity in industrial sector or opt for higher studies.
