This department known as Applied Mechanic Department does not have any specific diploma course like other departments namely Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Petrochemical Engineering. However it caters the needs of those departments for various subjects like Engineering Mechanics, Strength of Materials, Mechanics of Structures, Structural Design & Drawing and Soil Engineering.
The demand from industry is more and more for young engineers who are soundly grounded in their fundamental subjects rather than for those with specialized training. There is a good reason for this trend. The industrial engineer is continually being confronted by new problems, which do not always yield to routine methods of solution. It seems evident, then, that university training in such fundamental subjects as mechanics must seek to build a strong foundation to acquaint the student with as many general methods of attack as possible to illustrate the application of these methods to practical engineering problems. Mastery in this respect is the true good of engineering education.
In Structure design drawing we provide a strong motivation for the engineering students who have usually selected Civil engineering. Because of a strong desire to create something on physical level , real application of principles in designing.
Soil Engineering is particularly important for civil engineers. Any project requires foundation and knowledge of soil engineering provides key to understand and design foundations of various projects.
Quality control is very important for any engineering project. To ensure it testing is an integral part. Material testing laboratory of the department provides facility for the students to understand suitability of different engineering materials for varied applications. It is a basic need to give students a fundamental understanding of real engineering material as an important prerequisite to intelligent design. some of the benefits from testing are training in methods of observations, knowledge of accepted methods of testing, appreciation of the significance of data derived from tests, familiarity with the properties of common materials, exemplification of principles studied in strength of materials, knowledge of standards and specifications, acquaintance with the technical periodical literature and other sources of recorded data on properties of materials.
The Industrial and technical world is becoming increasingly test minded. Generally architects, builders, engineers, industrial designers and managers are familiar with the idea of testing and are coming to rely more and more on tests as a basis for making many important decisions. Industry also requires facility of testing for quality control.
Commercial Testing of various engineering material is also carried out by the department; namely test of cement, steel, concrete, fine & coarse aggregates, tiles, bricks, timber and properties of soil. Department has facility of 100 Ton capacity Universal Testing Machine which is fully computerized.
