Mechanical Engineering is versatile and evergreen branch of engineering. A Mechanical Engineer can work in various specialized areas like Automotive Systems, Combustion and Propulsion, Design Engineering, Dynamic Systems and Controls, Energy Systems and Thermodynamics, Fluid Power Engineering, Heat Transfer, Refrigeration & Air conditioning and most importantly in software field also. The program in Mechanical Engineering provides a broad intellectual foundation in the field of Mechanical Engineering. Our undergraduate program combines a broad-based education in the engineering sciences with a strong grounding in quantitative, problem-solving, design, and communications skills. The undergraduate degree program prepares students for professional practice in an era of rapidly advancing technology.
The Mechanical Engineering Department is one of the largest in terms of faculty, students, and activities, continues to lead and expand its activities in various directions. The department is in the process of being accredited by National Board of Accreditation. The department has most modern CAD/CAM center. The department has 13 laboratories, 3 computer labs and workshop with modern equipments. We are in the process of establishing tie-ups with various industries for transfer of technical knowhow and industrial projects. We have undertaken various projects and developed research and development culture in our department.
The journey for MITCOE began as a women’s engineering college. In time we established the credentials to convert into a co-ed college. Mechanical Engineering became a full-fledged branch. In ten years time we have established ourselves as a premier department in the Savitribai Phule Pune University. We have achieved result above 95% and many of our students have gone ahead and secured admissions for advanced courses in Engineering and Management.
The department also runs Post Graduate Course in Heat Power Engineering since June 2011.Considering the strength of the department, SPPU has given recognition as Research Centre in 2013 and the department has started Ph.D. program in Mechanical Engineering from August 2014.
