Mechanical Engineering plays a major role in structuring the real world, the systems we use, the means by which we commute and the energy that powers these to deliver the basic necessities of life. Mechanical engineers design, manufacture and maintain machinery used by all disciplines of engineering. This discipline has attracted outstanding individuals and helped in addressing the crucial technical challenges in the contemporary world. The career path of a mechanical engineer is largely determined by individual choice – a unique advantage in an ever-changing competitive world. The Department of Mechanical Engineering came into being in the year 2009 and the first batch of Mechanical Engineers graduated in the year 2013. At present it offers undergraduate course in various facets of Mechanical Engineering. The department has laboratory and workshop facilities with sophisticated equipment.
The Faculty of Engineering & Technology was established with a view to provide technical education in surroundings of spiritual and Gurukula system of education. Gurukula Kangri (Deemed to be University), Haridwar is known in India and abroad for the process of character building of the students through their moral and physical development. Keeping the same ideals in mind, management of the Vishwavidyalaya felt the need of technocrats with strong moral character, superior knowledge, who can serve the nation during this era of transition from materialism to a balance of materialism and spiritualism. The Faculty of Engineering & Technology was established year 2000 at present it is running B.Tech. in Computer Science & Engineering, Electronics & Communication Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. FET is accredited with TCS and major companies like Infosys, Adobe, Tech. Mahindra, HCL, Mahindra Satyam, J.K. Technosoft, Infogain have recruited our students. Beside teaching FET conducts regular extra-curricular activities like technical festival, sports etc. Students of FET enjoy the facility of state of art gymnasium situated at university stadium
The vision of the Department of Mechanical Engineering is to be regionally, nationally and internationally recognized in providing mechanical engineering education, leading to well-qualified engineers who are innovative, immediate contributors to their profession and successful in advanced studies.
The mission of the Department of Mechanical Engineering is to educate, prepare, inspire, and mentor students to excel as professionals and to grow throughout their careers in the art, science, and responsibilities of engineering. This is accomplished by:
- Providing the facilities and environment conducive to a high-quality education, well grounding the students in the fundamental principles of engineering and preparing them globally competitive mechanical engineers.
- To maintaining state of the art research facilities to provide a collaborative environment that stimulates faculty, staff, and students with opportunities to create, analyze, apply and disseminate knowledge.
- To achieve international standards to fulfill the Government’s “Make in India” industrial policy through innovation and research.
