Since its inception, mechanical engineering has been a formidable discipline. It is an irrefutable fact that some of the most significant scientific contrivances of the modern world are results of this highly revered discipline of Engineering. Despite being one of the oldest branches, it still holds social, cultural and financial importance.

Mechanical Engineering is not just another branch, it is a tradition. MU’S meticulously crafted curriculum pays tribute to this tradition while paving the way to a future that is increasingly seeing a synergy of various disciplines while shaping and strengthening newer paradigms like Mechatronics and Robotics. This is one of the reasons why, MU is appreciated for having the best Mechanical Engineering course.

The mechanical engineering course is designed to impart hands on experience along with providing exposure to state of the art machinery in our high-tech labs featuring various projects with industry collaborations. This enables the students to maintain pace with the transitional needs of this dynamic industry.

The core courses involve basic and advanced knowledge in fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and heat transfer, solid mechanics, materials engineering, manufacturing, energy systems, dynamics and control Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM), etc., which account for 53 credits.

For specialisation in the design of machines, engines, thermodynamic systems or advanced industrial engineering and management, five electives - accounting for 15 credits- can be opted from a plethora of professional or open courses.

Three departmental projects accounting for 15 credits test and aid acquired knowledge with practical skills necessary for the industry.


To attain the highest standards of excellence in technical pedagogy, contribution to contemporary research and nurture an entrepreneurial spirit that fosters leadership in technological innovations and create future ready global citizens.


• Promoting a culture of excellence in fundamental research and collaboration with industry, enabling continual intellectual growth of faculty and help students reach their potential.
• Offering a holistic and interdisciplinary education that combines knowledge from core principles of Mechanical and allied engineering disciplines, with humanities, ethics and management.
