Academic Curriculum of Mechanical Engineering– Brief Outlook
The Approach towards designing curriculum for Mechanical Engineering was to match the standard curriculum of All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) with emerging trends in the industry. The main focus of the curriculum is to produce students who are well prepared for Indian market with necessary core competency to succeed long-term in engineering jobs, entrepreneurship careers, and who are well prepared to undertake higher studies and career in research and development.
Typical Curriculum Structure includes theory and practical courses in
- Humanities and Social Sciences (HS) such as Professional communication and environmental science.
- Basic Sciences (BS) including Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry.
- Engineering Sciences (ES) including Engineering Workshop and Graphics, Basics of Electrical/Electronics/Mechanical/Computer Engineering.
- Professional Subjects-Core (PC) and Electives (PE) such As Thermodynamics, Applied Thermodynamics, Engineering Mechanics, Manufacturing process, Measurement and metrology, Heat and mass transfer, Dynamics of machine, kinematic of machine, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, IC Engines and Compressors, Mechanics of solids, Fluid machines, Fluid Machinery, CAD/CAM, Power Plant Engineering, Automobile Engineering.
- Open Subjects- Electives (OE), from other technical and/or emerging subject areas such as Non-Conventional Energy Resources, Quality management, Product development, Automation and Robotics.
- Mini and Major Project Work, Seminar and Internship in Industry.
The components HS,BS,ES,PC and PE specially emphasis on educating and preparing the students to develop a solid foundation in mathematical, scientific and electronics and communication fundamentals required to comprehend, analyze, design & create novel products and to provide solutions for engineering and technology related real life problems using techniques, tools and simulation.
The other curriculum components such as OE, Project Work, Seminar and Internship in Industry targets qualities such as professional/ethical attitude, effective communication skills and leadership/participation in team work skills and multidisciplinary approach. Students will also develop abilities for planning, development and implementation of strategies for life-long learning.
B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering is of 4 academic years (=8 Semesters), with the year being divided into two Semesters of ~ 20 weeks (>=90 working days) each for course work, followed by Internal sessional assessment during semester &External end semester examination to record the performance of students. The internal sessional assessment combines contribution of students in various types of assignments and sessional exams.
