Course Aims

Engineers plan, analyse, design and build anything that may move and sustain load – products range from toys to automobiles and aircrafts. They employ an energy source and convert it into mechanical motions in machines such as robots or pumps.  This course aims to lay down the foundations of mechanical engineering principles in such a way that the students can identify the appropriate concepts required in given engineering problems and apply them to formulate the suitable engineering solutions. In addition, the course also aims to develop students’ engineering report writing skill.
