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 Center of Excellence in collaboration with Daikin Air conditioners Pvt Ltd. to ensure hands-on practical exposure for the students and help them acquire the new technologies being practiced in the air-conditioning industry. Its Mechanics lab. Developed in collaboration with Beijing Wave Spectrum Science Ltd. with an investment of about 0.5 crores 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. Please click here to look at the complete details of the labs in Mechanical Engineering Department. In order to assist our students, each lab has a dedicated and qualified lab staff.
We have an unmatched campus placement record of more than 90% placements of eligible students every year in prestigious companies with superior annual packages in companies like Maruti Suziki, CB&I, Daikin Air Conditioners, Denso, Subros, JBM group, Fluor, Sona etc.
