Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering is one of the broadest and the most unique engineering disciplines. All the engineering disciplines such as Electrical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Automotive Engineering and Aeronautical Engineering have their roots of origin in Mechanical Engineering. Mechanical Engineering deals with the solutions of a wide spectrum of problems which cover the two broad areas namely Mechanical Systems and Thermal Systems. The domain of Mechanical Systems include design of mechanisms, analysis of strength and wear of materials etc. The main areas of interest of Thermal engineering are energy conservation methods, heat transfer and fluid flow. Department of Mechanical Engineering has been playing a leading role in imparting technical and reasoning aptitudes to students of BJI, apart from guiding them to excel in academics. The department offers 4 year B.Tech Degree Programme in Mechanical Engineering with an annual intake of 60 students. The department has well equipped laboratories with latest equipments of high quality. The department makes use of the technical facilities including workshops and laboratories in teaching and setting up of in-house experimental setups. Latest computing techniques are used in Mechanical Engineering Motion and Deformation Studies. Lab experiments are conducted to observe the behavior of different systems under varying operating conditions.

The latest computing techniques are used in Mechanical Engineering Motion and Deformation Studies in three dimensional cases to Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing. Class assignments include design software to create virtual prototypes and the use of stress analysis software to evaluate alternative design. Lab experiments are conducted to observe the behavior of different system under varying operating conditions.

B Tech Degree Programme in Mechanical Engineering (Four Year, Regular, Full Time)

1) Computer Aided Drafting, Modeling and Analysis Lab
Computer-aided design is the use of computer systems to assist in the creation, modification, analysis, or optimization of a design. CAD facilitates easier development of products and product management integration. It also helps greater modeling and even provides a basis for virtual networking. In the engineering world, CAD is extremely important and is widely used to design and develop products. Training is imparted to the students on software such as AutoCAD and Solid Works in this laboratory. This enables them to solve problems involving 2-D and 3-D modeling, structural, fluid and thermal analysis.

2) Fluid Mechanics and Machines lab
In this lab, we strive to understand the various concepts regarding fluid flow and hydraulic energy. The lab deals with both open channel (notches, weirs etc.) and closed channel (Orifice Meter, Venturi Meter etc.) flows. Apart from these we also study the various turbines (Kaplan, Francis and Pelton turbines), Hydraulic pumps (Reciprocating, Centrifugal and gear pumps) and basic concepts about floating bodies (metacentric height). All branches of engineering needs mechanical engineers to execute their goals. for example, thermal energy dissipation from electronic components needs better heat transfer methods for its life.

3) IC Engines Lab
The heart of any automobile is its engine. Hence the study of engines is of vital importance in improving their performance. In this lab, the students are introduced to different types of engines and are taught how to analyze various engine parameters. They also learn about the different fuels that are in use today. The various experiments they undertake helps them to understand the working of IC engines and the factors that affect their performance.

4) Production Engineering and Machine Tools Lab
In this lab, students are introduced to the world of production techniques and machines. Here they deal with various machines like lathes, shaping machines, grinders, milling machines, slotting machine etc., used for manufacturing of machine components. The different machining techniques they learn include turning, knurling, thread cutting, milling, shaping, drilling, grinding etc. We also have a fully automated CNC (Computer Numeric Control) machine which is very popular nowadays for conventional machining.

5) Thermal Engineering Lab
This lab deals with the basic concepts of conduction, convection and radiation along with the study of Air compressors and Blowers. The various experimental setups used in the lab are heat transfer through composite walls, natural and forced convection heat transfer, pressure gauge and thermo couple calibration, heat transfer by radiation, Air conditioning and refrigeration test rig, heat exchangers etc.

6) Mechanical Engineering Lab
This lab is fully equipped with a number of sophisticated measuring instruments that help students explore different areas of metrology and inspection, in the various engineering applications. The lab encompasses many useful linear and angular measuring devices such as Slip Gauges, Vernier Calipers, Screw Gauges, Bevel Protractor etc. The lab is also retrofitted with advanced instruments in computer integrated manufacturing like Pick and Place Robotic Arm, Programmable Logic Controller, Coordinate Measuring Instrument etc.
