    Lab Facilities
Basic Workshop:

To impart fundamental skills, the basic workshop is equipped with  Bench-wise, Workbenches, Bench drilling machine, Bench grinder, Arc Welding Machine, Gas welding machine, Shearing machine and Circular Saw machines.

Association Activities:

The Mechanical Engineering Association 'Society of Mechanical Engineers' organizes National Level Technical Symposia 'PLASMA' every year in order to bring out the inborn talents of the budding engineers. A two-day National conference was conducted during April 2009 to enhance the technical knowledge of the faculty members. Several guest lectures are being arranged round the year to update the knowledge so that students can keep track of state-of–the-art technologies.

Major Achievements:

A two-day national conference was conducted on the title 'Recent Trends in Mechanical Engineering' in April 2009.
