Honours degree is helpful in enriching the knowledge in disciplinary area. It means students of Mechanical Engineering can enrich their knowledge in few advanced technologies related to Mechanical engineering in greater depth. Studying undergraduate program in combination with Honours permits to improve skills and knowledge, under the guidance of an experienced staff member, in your selected area. Honours is a degree that provides an opportunity to explore one’s passion and expertise before committing to any Master Degree or further higher education or even for any placement opportunities.
Honours degree is helpful in enriching the knowledge in multi-disciplinary areas. It means, students of Mechanical Engineering can develop their knowledge base in advanced technologies related to different engineering fields.
The variety of minor programs that we offer for our engineering students helps to explore personal interests and further to improve employment opportunities. Various Minors available for student selection includes:
Our multidisciplinary approach of learning provides challenging opportunities to develop professional and technical competencies to gear up for developing new-age skills. The Mechanical program offers courses in emerging areas and cutting-edge technologies like Robotics and Industrial Automation, Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing), Pneumatics and Hydraulics, Industry 4.0, Artificial Intelligence, Augmented and Virtual Reality, Supply Chain Management, Smart Manufacturing etc. Academic delivery of these courses is exercised by experienced faculty with application orientation. Innovative learning initiatives are equipping students with problem-solving skills to explore career opportunities in various Industrial sectors. Mechanical Engineering is one of the comprehensive disciplines that offer a platform for a great deal of interdisciplinary work. Central Workshop, Innovation Incubation & Research Center (IIRC), Incubation Center for Vehicle Development and future-ready laboratories contribute to challenging the mental map. Our graduates apply knowledge and skills of material, design and manufacturing to the continuous development of new products and processes.
