Mechanical Engineering

Globalization has forced the manufacturing sector to adopt innovative production processes. The shop floors of modern day industries have become a highly automated. There is tremendous pressure to deliver products matching world-class quality. Therefore it has become mandatory for engineers to arm themselves with the necessary cutting-edge technologies. At IRT Tech, our students are well trained in all facets of Mechanical Engineering aided by state-of- the-art facilities. Besides specialized CAD/CAM laboratories, our students have access to specialized design software like Pro/E, CATIA, UNI GRAPHIX, IDEAS etc., The curriculum consists of a balanced mix of theory, principles and practice. Our students regularly undergo in plant training in some of the most prestigious industries.

Access to Computing

Our students have access to some of the best learning tools that include 24x7 access to computing, digital library, internet resources and information services. Our students are programmed to be in sync with the evolving needs of the industry. They regularly visit leading IT Organisations in India and keep themselves updated with latest in the field.

Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs)
  • Mechanical engineering is all about movement and machines, including the human body, the most complex machine.
  • To produce world class mechanical engineering graduates by making them to learn state of art technologies.
  • Mechanical engineers need a deep understanding of physics, mathematics and materials to design components ranging in size from cellular matrices for tissue engineering, to cooling systems for hot underground mines and also to hardware for military machinery and medical prosthetics.
Programme Outcomes (POs)
  • On completion of the Program, Mechanical Engineering graduates will be well conversant to design, develop, build and test mechanical equipments and thermal devices especially for automotive, aerospace and defense sectors.
  • Mechanical Engineering works mostly in engineering services, research developments and manufacturing.
  • By imparting practical experience through live and novel projects and 4 weeks internship exposure in reputed Mechanical industries, enabling mechanical engineering graduates industry ready.
