About the department

Mechanical Engineering department started in the year 2005 under the College of Engineering (COEs), UPES with a four-year degree program in Automotive Design Engineering (ADE) and initial intake of 60 students. Since then the department has grown many folds and now offers courses at undergraduate, postgraduate and doctorate level. The department is now having a forty-member faculty team with rich national international experience in both academics and industries. The department has produced 12 PhDs and 25 ongoing PhDs in a span of 14 years.

Department of Mechanical Engineering started B.Tech in Mechatronics and B.Tech in Mechanical engineering in the year 2010 and 2013 respectively. Presently 11 batches of ADE, 06 batches of Mechatronics and 03 batches of Mechanical engineering have passed out to serve the professional worlds in various capacities. The program offers an outcome-based curriculum with students focused approach, inculcating innovative and cutting-edge technical and professional competencies. The value system has been designed to create an environment that stimulates lifetime learning in all our students.

The department has grown with time in expertise and competencies in the core mechanical and allied engineering curriculum and research. Apart from this, the department focused on providing:

• Choice Based Credit System and Program Electives • Consultative Committees and Course Upgradation • State of the Art Laboratories • Continuous Evaluation • Value Added Courses • Industry derived courses(JSW, FANUC, ICME, Six Sigma) • National and International Forums and Chapters (ASME, ASHRAE, IIM, ISA, SAE, SPCC) • National and International Events • Research and Practice Informed Learning; Centre of Excellence • Collaboration and Valuable Output • Placement Assistance.

The department emphasizes entrepreneurship, interdisciplinary collaboration and professional ethics.


To be a Department for developing globally competent professionals in Mechanical Engineering and Allied areas, contributing to nation building


  • Generate competent professionals in the transportation, manufacturing and energy sector.
  • Develop and maintain state of the art infrastructure and research facilities to enable create, apply and disseminate knowledge.
  • Foster linkages with all stake holders for continuous improvement in academics and allied areas.
  • Develop students who shall be ethical in behaviour both in professional as well as in personal life; and
  • Create a culture where faculty and students give due consideration to environment and social commitment while solving a problem.


  • Engineering Knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  • Problem Analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
  • Design/Development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  • Conduct Investigations of Complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
  • Modern Tool Usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  • The Engineer and Society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
  • Environment and Sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
  • Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
  • Individual and Team Work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
  • Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  • Project Management and Finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
  • Life-Long Learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
