Initially, 30 students were being admitted to the program in the first year. Later on the intake capacity increased to 65.
The mechanical section has core laboratories such as power engineering, hydraulic engineering & design engineering. In addition taking into the consideration of new curriculum more advanced labs such as computer programming, CNC, mechatronics, solid modeling, mat lab and computer aided graphics lab were commissioned. The curriculum has gone a drastic change from its earlier days to present scenario where conventional drawing has been replaced by computer aided graphics. Design courses have been restructured alongwith manufacturing courses by including CIM. More thrust is towards management and computer oriented courses.
