- Inculcating the feeling of unity and service to humanity in the minds of the students to serve the society better.
Mechanical engineering emerged as a field during the industrial revolution in Europe in the 18th century however, its development can be traced back several thousand years around the world. Mechanical engineering science emerged in the 19th century as a result of developments in the field of physics. The field has continually evolved to incorporate advancements in technology and mechanical engineers today are pursuing developments in such fields as composites, mechatronics and nanotechnology. Mechanical engineering overlaps with aerospace engineering, building services engineering, llurgical engineering, marine engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, petroleum engineering, manufacturing engineering and chemical engineering to varying amounts.
The engineering field requires an understanding of core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, materials science, structural analysis, and electricity. Mechanical engineers use these core principles along with tools like computer-aided engineering and product lifecycle management to design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices and others.
