Department of Mechanical Engineering
• To excel both in teaching and research.
• To create an excellent ambience to foster creativity research and scholarship.
• To be an agent to help in technological growth of the country
Inarguably, the most diverse of the engineering fields, Mechanical Engineering influences almost all faces of our life and involves several specializations. It lies at the crossroads of all the engineering disciplines. One can define Mechanical Engineering as a creative discipline that draws upon a number of basic and applied sciences to design, build, and optimize the devices, machines, processes, and systems that involve mechanical forces, work, and energy.
Mechanical Engineering deals with a wide variety of scientific and technological challenges, which include design and manufacturing, energy conversion and power generation, control and automation, computer simulation, environment protection, building services, aerospace and many more. It is the responsibility of mechanical engineers to design machines that are safe, reliable, and efficient. Since all manufactured products must be constructed of solid materials and because most products contain parts that transmit forces, mechanical engineering is involved in designing and selecting the materials for and ensuring the structural integrity of almost every product in the market.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering at BNCET, Lucknow, set up in session 2009-2010. Our students are analytical thinkers who always strive to find better ways of doing things. We believe this department has a substantial contribution in elevating BNCET, Lucknow to the top position.
The faculty members are grouped under three broad specializations – Design, Manufacturing and Thermal & Fluids Engineering. They have been engaged in research in all the classical areas of Mechanical Engineering and upcoming areas too. The Department has decided recently to focus major research efforts in the following five areas:
• ° Nuclear Thermal Hydraulics
• ° CIM
• ° Refrigeration, A/C and Cryogenics
• ° MEMS, NEMS and Mechatronics.
