About the department
Mechanical Engineering is an evergreen discipline as whatever field of engineering one wishes to pursue as a career, the basics of Mechanical Engineering come in handy in the effective design, development, and optimization of equipment and devices used in any industrial activity. Keeping in mind cutthroat competition in the industries and to cater to the needs of mechanical engineers in the industries of Gujarat and beyond, the college had started Mechanical Branch with the intake of 30 seats in the year 2004 affiliated to Saurashtra University, later was affiliated to Gujarat Technological University. Since 2018 it is now working under the aegis of Atmiya University
Department currently has an Intake of 60 at UG level and 42 at PG level including 24 in Production Engineering and 18 in CAD/CAM under Atmiya University. The faculties are well experienced in their respective fields and committed to producing world-class engineers. The Department has well-developed Laboratories and Workshop with an investment of more than Rs. 90 Lakhs.
Mechanical Department has State of the art Laboratories. In addition to normal laboratory facilities we have specialized labs in the area of CAD-CAM and Production. That includes CNC, VMC, TIG and MIG Welding machines, Non-destructive Testing Lab, Foundry sand testing labs which are used for research purposes.
Mechanical Department has actively involved in student all-round development through student-centric activities. Student clubs have been formed where Career enrichment programs are conducted in terms of seminars/workshops/certificate programs/ aptitude tests. Our students have actively participated in various technical activities and won prizes in many events including ASME and ASQ.
Being under the Private University Department has the flexibility to modify the syllabus as per the need of the industries. The department grooms a student to an extent that he/she can excel in the field of technology independently. Our students are well trained for the latest industrial technology and have good knowledge of the subjects of their curriculum. The skills are inculcated into the students through hands-on experience through experiments in labs. The communication and soft skills are also imparted to the students which ensures their 360 holistic development.

Scope of the Program
The role of a mechanical engineer is to take a product from an idea to the marketplace. In order to accomplish this, a broad range of skills are needed. The mechanical engineer needs to acquire particular skills and knowledge. He/she needs to understand the forces and the thermal environment that a product, its parts, or its subsystems will encounter; to design them for functionality, aesthetics, and the ability to withstand the forces and the thermal environment they will be subjected to; and to determine the best way to manufacture them and ensure they will operate without failure. Perhaps the one skill that is the mechanical engineer’s exclusive domain is the ability to analyze and design objects and systems with motion.
Mechanical engineers play a central role in such industries as automotive (from the car chassis to its every subsystem—engine, transmission, sensors); aerospace (airplanes, aircraft engines, control systems for airplanes and spacecraft); biotechnology (implants, prosthetic devices, fluidic systems for pharmaceutical industries); computers and electronics (disk drives, printers, cooling systems, semiconductor tools); micro-electromechanical systems, or MEMS (sensors, actuators, micropower generation); energy conversion (gas turbines, wind turbines, solar energy, fuel cells); environmental control (HVAC, air-conditioning, refrigeration, compressors); automation (robots, data and image acquisition, recognition, control); manufacturing (machining, machine tools, prototyping, micro-fabrication).
To put it simply, mechanical engineering deals with anything that moves, including the human body, a very complex machine. Mechanical engineers learn about materials, solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, control, instrumentation, design, and manufacturing to understand mechanical systems. Specialized mechanical engineering subjects include biomechanics, cartilage-tissue engineering, energy conversion, laser-assisted materials processing, combustion, MEMS, microfluidic devices, fracture mechanics, nanomechanics, mechanisms, micropower generation, tribology (friction and wear), and vibrations.
The breadth of the mechanical engineering discipline allows students a variety of career options beyond some of the industries listed above. Regardless of the particular path they envision for themselves after they graduate, their education will have provided them with the creative thinking that allows them to design an exciting product or system, the analytical tools to achieve their design goals, the ability to overcome all constraints, and the teamwork needed to design, market, and produce a system. These valuable skills could launch a career apart from mechanical industries also in medicine, law, consulting, management, banking, finance, etc.
Having completed a Master in Production the following scope exists:
Production engineering as a career option in India is a lucrative profession. Production engineering is a combination of manufacturing technology with management science. A production engineer typically has a wide knowledge of engineering practices and is aware of the management challenges encountered during various phases of production. The production engineer aims to accomplish the production process in the smoothest and most-economic way.
Production engineering encompasses the application of castings, machining processing, joining processes, metal cutting & tool design, metrology, machine tools, machining systems, automation, jigs and fixtures, die and mould design, material science, design of automobile parts, and machine designing and manufacturing.
Production Engineers can specialize in the knowledge of what every machine on the shop floor does and can resolve a breakdown if it occurs with their expertise.
Production Engineers can specialize in the knowledge of Quality and reliability of output from machines and how it can be improved. Today, these parameters are manual but in the industry 4.0 era, production engineers understanding code can enable machines to learn the quality problems and focus more on predicting quality problems rather than reactions.
Production Engineers will also have a scope in product design wherewith the knowledge of additive manufacturing and 3D Printing, programs to design a particular product can be written by the production engineer, and accordingly, he can 3D print the product.
