Department Laboratory Details



Mechanical Engineering Workshop is a place where students acquire basic knowledge of various tools and various processes involved in manufacturing and production. Engineers must expose themselves to all working trades, so that they can get view of the basic practical activities involved with all sections of manufacturing. They must understand the activities and practical difficulties, so that they can take appropriate decisions in future. The Workshop Practice course makes students theory complete with practical work in engineering environment.



Strength of any material play important role in designing of any component, there are different strength properties which influence the various characteristics for different applications under the action of various kind of loading.

MTP lab is to impart practical knowledge of hardness, tensile strength, shear strength, flexural rigidity, load strain behavior, ultimate strength, toughness, torsional rigidity, stiffness and rigidity of springs and compressive strength etc.



Hydraulics lab is generally provided with water flow measuring equipment, turbines, pumps etc. these equipment help in determining rate of flow, velocity, flow characteristics, coefficients etc.

Pneumatics are the machines which runs atmospheric air. The air is used as a work substance. The lab includes a range of different valves and regulators to familiarize students with the type of motions that can be achieved by pneumatic devices. It contains flow control valves, directional control valves etc.By using this valves and air has a working medium to motion of air cylinder are controlled. The air first compressed in compressor and then supplied to different valves and actuators and finally control of air cylinder.



The Manufacturing Processes (MP) Laboratory provides students with the opportunity to study and practice manufacturing processes. This laboratory provides students with experimental technique of manufacturing processes. Students can set up and operate machines, manufacture parts, measure process variables, and inspect manufactured parts. Student learning from lab experiences is integrated with prior and subsequent learning of other engineering topics such as engineering materials.

The MP Laboratory also provides facilities for students to carry out process and product design projects in many courses. The principal research objective of the MP Lab is to provide opportunities to study selected manufacturing processes. To date, the lab equipment has been used for studies in machining. The machine tools have also been used to fabricate pieces of equipment for experiments.



It is a computer aided designing and drafting software application. A well-equipped computer lab with advanced facilities is established for the benefits of civil engineering students. High end terminals supported by latest hardware and software, latest visual aids, plotting devices etc. are among them. Advanced civil engineering software are procured for making the students globally competitive and industry ready. At CAD lab, students get professional training on 2D and 3D drafting of civil engineering drawings using the latest version of auto CAD drawings.



In this laboratory, students will have the opportunity to study the working principle of IC engines (both SI and CI engines), performance and characteristics in terms of heat balancing, economical speed variations, air fuel ratio influence on the engine to reinforce classroom theory by having the student perform required tests, analyze subsequent data, and present the results in a professionally prepared report.

The machines and equipment used to determine experimental data include cut models of 4stroke diesel engine, 2stroke petrol engine, 4stroke and two stroke petrol engines with required specifications, Multi cylinder SI engine, Single cylinder Diesel engine for performance and speed test which is suitable to tests on variable compression ratios.



The main objective of this lab is to develop an idea of fuel properties and their variation with temperature, determination of kinematic viscosity and calorific value of fuels.



Drawing is said to be the language of engineers. All material objects have a shape and form, which can be represented by a combination of known geometrical figures. A thorough grounding in drawing to represent these objects on a plane is considered very essential for engineers. Any construction or fabrication, it may be a building, a factory or a machine has to begin with a drawing which forms the basis and guide to get the work done.

Drawing is commonly used mode of communication in the engineering industry. Proper exposure to drawing helps the students to translate different ideas into practice. Acquisition of skill will produce a drawing to represent a given object with sufficient knowledge to understand and interpret. As such drawing is regarded a pre-requisite for technician engineer.
