Department of Mechanical Engineering started with the B.E. Programme in the year 2010-11. It was affiliated to Savitribai Phule Pune University. The first batch of Mechanical Engineering came out in 2013-14. Since then 5 batches have received their degrees. The department received Savitribai Phule Pune University approval in 2013-14 for 60 intakes admission to Direct Second Year Engineering, now we have total 120 intake seats for under graduate programme.
Over the decades, there is an increasing demand for the mechanical engineers in core areas like manufacturing, robotics, automotive/transportation and air conditioning. Mechanical Engineering has interdisciplinary association with the areas like nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, environmental and bio-medical fields. Mechanical engineering can design and develop everything one thinks of as a machine – from bicycles to supersonic fighter jets. Mechanical Engineering plays most important role in the industrial growth. To meet the above requirements, the latest subjects like Industrial Fluid Power, Computational Fluid Dynamics, finite Element method, CAD/CAM and Energy Audit & Management are introduced into the curriculum of Mechanical Engineering. To cope up with these subjects practically, department has set well equipped & computerized laboratories like Advance Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer, Refrigeration & Air Conditioning, Mechatronics, Industrial Hydraulics and Pneumatics, Dynamics of machinery, Theory of Machine, I.C. Engines, CAD/CAM Laboratory with Advanced software like AutoCAD, Ansys, PRO-E, MATLAB, Master-CAM, Catia V5R20 etc, which are utilized by undergraduate students for conducting experiments. Mechanical Engineers can take career paths in industry, Entrepreneur/Business Owner, Research Labs, Military, Government sectorand
To develop compatible technical manpower by promptly responding to the challenges of dynamically changing engineering environment and providing solutions to social and industrial problems.
To develop technical manpower for catering current and future demands of society and industry. To groom research anddevelopment among students for accepting rapidly changing environment.

It gives me pleasure to introduce our Mechanical Engineering Department. We have an excellent academic result in the tradition of GHRIET along with campus placement in reputed industries. In the era of globalization, to be the leader in the competition, the Institute and department has increased the interaction with industry since many years in the form of consultancy services, training, sponsored projects and joint research work. Department has signed MoUs with Prolific Systems & Technologies, Pune and Qualden Technology Pune. Prolific Systems & Technologies is pioneer in industrial automation training since 1997. Qualden Technology Pune organization working in the field of Robotics and automation. These organizations conduct workshops and seminars for the student’s benefit. The department has a vision to become a center of excellence in the field of Mechanical Engineering. Departmental strength of highly qualified, experienced and dedicated faculty along with creative students are working hard to achieve this goal.
Department has Yantra lab set up of IIT Bombay which provides the platform for the students to develop their innovative project ideas. A high degree of professionalism is inducted to the students through the student chapters of professional association such as Indian Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air conditioning Engineers (ISHRAE). Students are encouraged to participate in Group discussion, Technical Quiz, Aptitude Test under the MESA and also Roborace, Paperpresentation and CAD venture are effectively conducted. A skill development Club activity works to enhance writing skills andcommunication skills for the benefit of the students, also we have a great achievement in Technical paper presentation competitions.Thank you for visiting our website.
Mechanical engineering is the evergreen branch among all other branches of engineering. They deal with the concepts of mechanics, thermodynamics, robotics, kinematics, structural mechanics, fluid mechanics, power sector, refrigeration, air conditioning sector and aerospace. There is a great scope of mechanical engineering now-a-days. It is expanding beyond its boundaries and more of interdisciplinary in nature. It is one of the oldest branches of engineering. This field of engineering is the broadest of all engineering fields, job prospects on offer for skilled engineer are plenty and unending. They can find employment in both government as well as private sector. Mechanical engineers are required to design, test, manufacture, install, operate and maintain a wide array of machines and mechanical systems that are used in industries. There is a great scope of job avenues for mechanical engineers in India.
Few of them are listed below:
