From HOD's Desk

Mechanical engineering is one of the oldest branch of engineering. It is also referred to as the 'mother' branch of engineering. Another appealing feature of mechanical engineering is that the application base of this field of study which is extremely broad and diverse. Mechanical engineering requires an understanding of core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, materials science, structural analysis, etc. Mechanical engineers use these core principles along with tools like computer-aided engineering, and product lifecycle management to design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices, weapons, and others.

Traditionally, mechanical engineers have to deal with concepts such as mechanics, thermodynamics, robotics, kinematics, structural analysis, fluid mechanics and many others. To support the knowledge attained from theory classes the BHOPAL INSTITUTE OF TECNOLOGY Bhopal (BIT) possess the following laboratories/workshops enabling the students to have hands on experience about the real world: LABORATORIES BME, ENGG. MECHANICS, SMOM, FM, DOM, MCD, WORKSHOP, RAC, HMT, MMC, AUTOMOBILE, MDD, TOM, IC ENGINE

The afore-mentioned are the conventional roles and responsibilities of mechanical engineers. However, times have changed. Nowadays the scope of mechanical engineering is expanding beyond its traditional boundaries. In BIT we are providing all necessary inputs to our students through well qualified and experienced faculty members in order to make our students competent enough to compete and respond to the need of tomorrow.
