Associate Professor and HOD

Welcome to the Mechanical Engineering Department at The NorthCap University

Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest engineering disciplines and professions. “If any machine is moving or using energy, Mechanical engineer was probably behind its design, development, or production.”  Mechanical engineers have been the champions of growth in any economy and every sector of the industry, be it automotive, power, renewable energy or computer and electronics design etc.

The Mechanical Engineering Department, The NorthCap University Gurugram established in 1996 to impart professional  knowledge and . Over the last two decades we have developed competence in core Mechanical Engineering and research,  in areas like energy, industrial and production, robotics, design, and automobile etc. We have well developed labs and equipment. The department has to its credit  industrial consultancy and funded projects from industry. The department keeps pace with fast-changing industrial needs. The focus is to promote problem solving skills and innovation of new technologies. We have a well established infrastructure and well equipped labs. We believe in continuous improvement and strive hard to improve upon the quality of education and to maintain our position of leadership in International and National rankings.

“As for the future, your task is not to foresee it, but to enable it,” lines by a french explorer Antoine de Saint Exupéry,  indicate the strategy and practices of the mechanical engineering Department at the NorthCap university. Our focus is on providing quality education, inculcating and promoting innovation and originality. Carry out research in socially relevant areas. The Department of Mechanical Engineering follows to be a preferred destination for students, researchers, teachers and external stakeholders.

Our department has a team of highly qualified and experienced faculties from IITs and other reputed institutes. Faculty members have excellent academic credentials and are highly regarded. The faculty periodically keeps themselves updated for new scientific and technological developments.  We have active research groups for carrying out collaborative and interdisciplinary research. Faculty members have good academic credentials and are active researchers. They write research articles for national and international journals, review technical articles for journals, organize and attend national and  international conferences.

We have a strong undergraduate program in mechanical engineering, including a B. Tech. M. Tech. and Ph.D. programme. Our department offers a market driven, industry focused, IT enabled interdisciplinary engineering curriculum. It is a well designed rigorous yet flexible curriculum. The  focus of our curriculum is to promote lifelong learning, critical thinking and problem solving skills. Our curriculum is periodically updated for incorporating new and upcoming technology, skills and industry practices. Students are encouraged to undertake mini projects, major projects and industry internships. They also do skill development courses and workshops at the department. Beyond the classroom, our students learn team-work, good oral and written communication skills to become well-equipped and talented graduates with the right attitude. Emphasis is on holistic development through participation in co-curricular and activities of professional societies.

We maintain a high level of industry-academia collaboration through a wide range of activities including industry associated projects, internships, industrial visits, expert lectures, workshops and conferences. We are committed to offering our students a platform to develop and hone their skills and be ready to face market challenges when they graduate and, therefore, offer industry relevant programmes with updated syllabi, laboratory and computational facilities.

The Mechanical engineering department has kept an excellent track record in student employability and placements. NCU’s Mechanical Engineering graduates get high end placement offers in reputed companies as we skill them to take off running from day one. Many of you graduates are successful entrepreneurs and leading industries and enterprises. Also, some of our graduates move abroad to pursue higher studies and take up research careers in the USA, Germany, UK and Canada.
