The department offers following Programmes. Please click on them for more details.
In addition to many professional activities, technical festival, cultural festival, sports events and many student club activities organized by the NorthCap University, the Department of Mechanical Engineering has taken following additional initiatives for the co-curricular development of our students:
The department is proud of the fact that almost all of our faculty members are from nationally and internationally reputed institutions/universities (like IITs). We ensure highest standards for our faculty and almost all our faculty members are either PhD or are pursuing PhD from intuitions/universities of national/international repute. Please click here to know more about our faculty members.
The department has 27 laboratories in total. The department ensures that all its labs are updated every year. Its labs have well equipped advanced machines and equipments that provide the facilities for conducting the experiments and training for the students as per the market requirement. For example, the department’s highly advanced computational research lab has all important mechanical engineering softwares like ANSYS, Solidworks, Matlab, Autocad, Fluent (CFD) etc. These softwares help our students in gaining designing and other relevant skills with are required by the industry. This computational lab is fully networked and can be accessed by students and faculty members through their wi-fi enabled laptops provided by the institute. Its recently developed Mechanics lab. in collaboration with Beijing Wave Spectrum Science Ltd. with an investment of about 0.5 crores by them is an example of eagerness of industry to associate with us. Its IC Engine lab (equipped with CRDi and other technologies) and its Robotics lab. are yet another examples of department’s eagerness to always remain upgraded with recent technologies.

Intense industrial exposure is inbuilt in our curriculum. All students have to mandatorily go through two summer trainings in the industry. Apart from this, students are given opportunity to work with industry for the final year project. Many industrial visits and lectures from industry persons are regularly organized for the students. Please click here to know more about some of such events. Additionally, the department has signed MoUs with many industries (Delta, Mitsubishi, Beijing etc) that help us strengthen the industrial exposure of our students. Please click here to look at some of the industries who have signed MoUs with us.
Mechanical Engineering program at The Northcap University is specially designed to make students Industry-Ready. The content of the program is regularly aligned to inculcate the present needs of industry. This is reflected in our unmatched campus placement record of nearly 100 % placements every year in prestigious companies with superior annual packages. Many of our students are pursuing higher studies in prestigious US, Canadian and Indian Universities and some have ventured into Entrepreneurships with their own well running businesses.
At NCU, we know that it is the graduation years that one cherishes throughout their life and it is not only the knowledge gained but also the right attitude developed at alma mater that lays the building blocks for one’s growth. Our B.Tech/M.Tech programs aim at providing a strong foundation in Theoretical, Practical and Design Aspects of Engineering. Our specialized courses aim at producing professionals with a sound knowledge in engineering as well as having a well-groomed personality.
Our engineers learn to work in team with other specialists to Design, Fabricate, Produce, Test and Supervise the manufacturing of complex products and systems for a number of different types of industries. We follow Practical Oriented Teaching Practices to help our students to be readily placed in some of the best companies.

Mechanical engineers design, analyze, program and supervise in the fields of manufacturing, design, robotics, product development, industrial engineering, thermal engineering, energy and many more. Engineers are also employed in technical sales, marketing and support positions for business and scientific equipment/software.
Thus, there are tremendous job opportunities for Mechanical graduates and post graduates not only in core fields (manufacturing, air conditioning, oil & gas, design, industrial, automobile, robotics, energy etc) but also in non-core areas (software, service industry, and marketing). The ‘Make in India’ initiative by government of India has lead to significant growth in the fields related to mechanical engineering.
Being the most generalized branch the Mechanical graduates enjoy the benefit of both the worlds and have an edge in comparison with other branches. Besides there are opening in Govt. and public sector as well either directly or through competitive exams like GATE. All B.Tech students at NCU appear for GATE exam. and with good score can find entry in these jobs. The placement record for Mechanical students has been nearly 100% for all eligible students for last so many years.
Many of our students also opt for MBA or for higher studies abroad or in India at reputed institutions. Many of our passed out students are pursuing their MS/PhD from USA, UK, Australia, Canada and other countries in addition to M.Tech and MBA from reputed institutes of India.
In addition to the above many of our students go for IES / Civil Services and Engineers in Navy/Army/Air force, and thus serve the country in this manner.
