BE (Mechanical) Program


Introduction

Mechanical Engineering Department at DSU offers a four-year, BE (Mechanical) degree program. The BE (Mechanical) curriculum is designed to prepare mechanical engineering students to comply with the continuously growing and evolving demands of both local and global industry, academia and R&D sector. Under continuous guidance and mentoring of highly qualified and experienced faculty members, the students are provided a congenial learning environment where they can develop theoretical, practical and managerial skills through exhaustive pedagogy, experiential learning as well as personal and professional grooming.

The department maintains a strong focus in ensuring one-to-one mentoring of each student. The department boasts of an impressive student-to-teacher ratio of 20:1. Our students’ learning experience is further enhanced with state-of-the-art laboratory facilities on which the department has already invested more than 200 million rupees. These laboratory facilities are being enhanced further in line with HEC and PEC guidelines.

BE (Mechanical) Program Mission

"To provide an education that builds within students a solid foundation in knowledge and practice of Mechanical Engineering, instills good ethics, develops effective communication skills and keeps pace with current relevant technologies to enable them to play a useful role in society."

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

  1. Be effective professional engineers grounded in sound engineering knowledge and practice
  2. Be responsible engineers, who exercise good ethics in their professional pursuits with due consideration to impact on society
  3. Be able to advance their knowledge and adapt to technological changes in the field of mechanical engineering

Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)

  1. Engineering Knowledge
    An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  2. Problem Analysis
    An ability to identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
  3. Design / Development of Solutions
    An ability to design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  4. Investigation
    An ability to investigate complex engineering problems in a methodical way including literature survey, design and conduct of experiments, analysis and interpretation of experimental data, and synthesis of information to derive valid conclusions.
  5. Modern Tool Usage
    An ability to create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations.
  6. The Engineer and Society
