Mechanical Engineering

About Department


The mechanical engineering department stands as a strong pillar, right from the inception of MGM College of Engineering and Technology and extends its strong support to society by creating hundreds of excellent, self-motivated and innovative mechanical engineers and continues its mighty journey into the future. Our Department with its highly qualified faculty and staff, fosters the multifaceted talents of students by conducting various programs.


1. Computer-Aided Design and Analysis Lab

This lab aims to train the students in solid modelling, surface modelling, assembly modelling, mechanism design and drafting. The latest version of the modelling software 3D experience is used in the lab. CAD Lab is also equipped with structural and CFD analysis software like ANSYS  which helps students to conduct numerical analysis on complex structures and fluid flow problems.
