Machining is a step in the process of manufacturing where a work piece is given its specified shape through removal of surplus material. Students from all branches of engineering learn about the fundamentals of machining operations in the Basic Workshop, where they are given hands-on training. 

The Machine Shop is designed and equipped to teach students of mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, and automobile engineering. Students learn how to use different machines and are trained on developing various models.
