B. Tech. in Mechanical Engineering

FET05
MECHANICAL

Overview

Mechanical Engineering is perhaps the most diverse and versatile of the engineering disciplines. It plays a key role in energy, transportation, development of infrastructure and manufacturing of consumer durables. Mechanical engineering touches virtually every aspect of modern life, from mobile phones and biomedical devices, to aircrafts and power plants. Presently, mechanical engineers are contributing in research and development pertaining to environmental and bio-medical fields. Mechanical engineers are responsible for selection and processing of eco-friendly materials and processes, design and fabrication of medical devices and prostheses to improve quality of life. 

The Progressive curriculum gives significant thrust to core areas, namely, Design. Thermal and Manufacturing and allied areas such as Industrial Engineering, Automation, Automotive Engineering, provides ample opportunities for self-learning. Curriculum provides opportunities for students to choose from wide stream of electives, including core areas, Robotics and Advanced Mathematics. Experienced and committed faculty hand hold students to achieve beyond curriculum needs. Students are exposed to related software for simulation, modelling and problem solving in most courses. Hands on experience in laboratories in all streams with state of the art facilities facilitate enhanced learning.

Objective

  • To impart knowledge on mechanical systems and their sub-systems
  • To teach analytical modelling, simulation and analysis to study the behavior of mechanical systems 
  • To provide the skills to design, build and test mechanical systems. To train students on manufacture and production of mechanical systems 
  • To design and develop prototypes of mechanical systems to meet the specific needs
  • To provide opportunities for personal development and strengthening interactive skills with a feel for society and to pursue a long lasting career 

Highlights

  • Minor Programme

    An additional program in which students can pursue a study of choice alongside the main degree. Students can register for this in consultation with faculty. This program is for aspirational candidates. Our program offers Electric Vehicles as a minor program and is open to all the engineering students in RUAS. 

  • Proctoral System

    Under the Proctoral System, every student is assigned a faculty member as a Proctor or a mentor. 

    These mentors offer guidance, support and encouragement to students, helping them as they progress along their academic journey. From the choice of electives to their academic performance, from attendance to meeting their credit requirements, students can approach these mentors with any and every query. 

    Proctors also interact with parents/​guardians and keep them updated on the progress of students.

    To ensure that they reap the benefits of the Proctoral System, students are advised to be in regular contact with their Proctors. 

  • A Semester Abroad

    We offer a program in which students can register a semester in the final year with a partner university, where students can do an internship or a project. 

  • Innovation Centre

    At the Innovation Centre, students team up with faculty members to bring their innovative ideas to life. 

    Ideas are assessed based on their relevance to — and impact on — society. These are then translated into working projects that are entered in national and international competitions, and for registration as patents.

  • Open Electives

    Students can choose from a multitude of open electives across faculties for credits. These are specially designed courses which offer a basic introduction for a holistic development.

  • Our emphasis on applied brilliance translates into a campus that is buzzing with activity, whether in the form of guest lectures, seminars, workshops and industry events or student-organised activities and competitions. 
  • With 9 Faculties from different areas of study, multidisciplinary thinking is a way of life at RUAS.
  • From a host of eateries and cafes to convenience stores and coffee vending machines, our campus has been designed and developed to ensure that the needs of every student are met.
  • With access to RUAS’s numerous facilities, students are encouraged to participate in co-curricular sports and cultural events.
  • The University offers a range of on-campus accommodation options. Third party, off-campus hostels are also available.
