From the Desk of the HOD:

Dear Students,

Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering PSIT College of Engineering, Kanpur.We started our journey in the year of 2011. Over the years, we have grown our expertise and competence in the core Mechanical Engineering curriculum and research to accomplish the necessity of competent Mechanical engineers in the current phase of infrastructure development in the state as well as nation.

The primary focus of our curriculum is to impart technical know-how to students, promote their problem-solving skills and innovation of new technologies. Department offers large number of optional courses for providing wide spectrum of options to the students to pursue their interest. The course contents are periodically updated for introducing new scientific and technological developments.

To have hands-on experience, laboratories are developed indigenously. The department owns laboratories in the area of Fluid engineering, Thermal engineering, Mechanical Measurement, Manufacturing engineering, The department has well equipped workshop facility with Lathe, Drill Machine, Shapers, TIG, MIG, Gas welding, casting, CNC and Wheel alignment and balancing setups with advance technology.Department also focus on training program on various mechanical software as well as programming languages and soft skills. Like SOLIDWORKS (3-D CAD Design), CATIA, AUTODESK, 6-Sigma Lean Manufacturing, Python Programming and Data Base Management System.

In favour of the overall development of students, the department follows holistic approach that incorporates career counselling, industrial tour and professional society related exercises along with academic activities.

Many of our students represented their project on various national platforms such as AICTE ChatraVishwakarma Award, India International Science Festival (IISF), Utthan Agri-prenureship Conclave, Kalam Annual Project and Poster Technical Competition (KAPPEC).

Most of our faculties are gold medallist of their respective specialization. Mechanical Engineering Department has collaborated with BirbalSahni Institute of Palaeosciences, Lucknowon Project: “Power-Operated Cores to procure samples from wood and soft sediment”
