Mechanical engineers use the basic principles of motion, energy, and force to design and manufacture a vast-range of products. Mechanical Engineering is a creative profession in which students are trained to conceive, construct, test, and operate all kinds of mechanical, thermal, and biomedical devices. Today's mechanical engineers may work on developing robotic systems for manufacturing; develop a prototype of an electric car; build and test turbojets; design and produce advanced materials for supersonic travel or for medical purposes, such as the mechanical heart valve; fabricate components for micro and nano electro mechanical systems ranging from optical micro switches to active drug delivery chips.
The Mechanical Engineering at Ashokrao Mane Polytechnic aims to high-caliber mechanical engineers for a demanding profession. The undergraduate curriculum emphasizes the basic principles of the discipline and educates students in the use of these principles to solve complex engineering problems. Throughout the cirriculum, students learn how to design and conduct experiments and to collect, analyze and interpred data via laboratory work and design projects.
The students learn how to design and conduct experiments and to collect, analyze, and interpret data. During their senior year, students work in teams on industrially sponsored design projects. Elective area courses in advanced materials, mechatronics, computational fluid dynamics, vibration, robotics, nanotechnology, micromechanics, computer integrated manufacturing and automation provide a holistic perspective on mechanical engineering. The Mechanical Engineering faculty actively conducts research in the areas of materials processing and materials behavior, fluid and thermal systems, control and vibration, mechatronics, micro/nano electromechanical systems, and manufacturing/automation.
