The roots of the Department of Mechanical Engineering of MPSTME can be traced back to the techno-managerial program, started in the academic year 2004-05, affiliated to the NMIMS Deemed-to-be University. The program was intended to groom curious learners in the rapidly evolving realm of technology and business. In the five years of the duration of the program, the students were exposed to rigorous course works, practical sessions, co-curricular activities and initiatives, international competitions, internships, industry/corporate visits and lot more. The program conferred a dual degree of ‘MBATech. (Manufacturing)’ on successful completion. The first batch of this program had passed out in the year 2009 (Batch 2004 to 2009).
In parallel, the Department of Mechanical Engineering was formed and many inclusions kept taking place, leading to where the Department of Mechanical Engineering presently stands poised. With world class research labs and highly qualified and experienced faculty, the Department of Mechanical Engineering of MPSTME has evolved into a robust centre of both, learning and activities, alike.
With focused research being carried out in the domains of all 4 pillars, namely, Thermal and Fluids Engineering, Manufacturing and Materials Engineering, Mechanical Design and Industrial Engineering, which the realm of Mechanical Engineering comprises of, faculties and students have been largely contributing to advancements in the realm of technology. The Department of Mechanical Engineering also boasts of good linkages in the industry.
As a token towards these multi-faceted initiatives and activities taking place in the Mechanical Department, the Department was conferred upon the “Best Department Award’’ for the academic year 2017-2018.
