Today Mechanical Engineers need to have the capacity of adaptability and creativity in the new technical areas. Mechanical Engineering involves knowledge not only of its own specialized fields, but also of wide interdisciplinary fields, as well. To meet the above requirements, Mechanical Engineering Department offers a Four Year UG-Program B.Tech.(Mechanical) Plain degree and B.Tech.(Honors) in 1)Electrical Vehicle Design & 2)3D Printing with an intake of 180 students.
Furthermore, Mechanical Engineering Students can also pursue B.Tech.(Honors) as well as B.Tech.(Minor) Degree Programs with additional specializations like 1)Internet of Things 2)Industrial Automation & Robotics 3)Solar Power PV Technology & 4)Micro Grid Technology etc. Mechanical Dept. also offers a Two Year PG degree in M.Tech.(Mechanical: Design Engineering) and a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering. The Department has been accredited thrice by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA), New Delhi. Also in year 2017, Institute got accreditation by NAAC with ‘A’ grade for a period of five years.
The department has well-qualified and dedicated staff (37 in numbers, 12 with PhD qualification) and is known for its high academic standard, well-maintained discipline and complete infrastructure facilities. The dedication and hard work of the staff members have given fruitful results with our students securing ranks at University Examinations consistently. Till date 16 students are in Top-10 university rankers, with recently Mr. Bhide Mukund Milind, secured 10th rank in SE-May2020 exams amongst all second year students of mechanical engineering branch at SPPU, Pune University.
There are well equipped laboratories in the department; a separate CAD/CAM laboratory has been developed with various softwares such as Pro-E wildfire, ANSYS, Master CAM, MATLAB, PTC-Creo, CADian, Unigraphics-NX4, CNC2000 etc. Moreover, 3-D Printing Machine, CNC Milling and Lathe machines, Robotic Workstations and Electric Discharge Machine have been added. Engine emission testing equipment like Five Gas Analyzer and Diesel Smoke Meter is also available in the Internal Combustion Engines laboratory. A state of the art ‘BMW SKILL CENTER’ has been started for the training of students on the advanced BMW automotive engine. Recently department has started ISHRAE Club, e-Yantra & Sanjivani Robotics Club for overall development of students, and has signed MOUs with industries for solving industrial problems in specific and technical knowledge exchange.
Our Institute, Sanjivani COE has gone for gradual Academic Autonomy from June-2019 under SPPU Pune, so as to upgrade the syllabi in specific and entire curriculum in general as per the needs of industry and the challenges of 21st century. In line with the current industrial demands, the Department is also conducting various activities viz. Foreign Language Courses (German & Japanese languages), Skill Development Courses (Auto Lisp Programming, IIT-B SCILAB & PYTHON courses), Training Programs (SAP-modules, Microsoft Excel Basic, CNC-Programming), Workshops (TIFAN, 3D-Printing, Entrepreneurship Awareness, Hybrid/Solar Vehicle making), Guest Lectures (Career opportunities in Merchant Navy, Indian Air Force, Lean Manufacturing, Opportunities in Higher Education, GATE/IES-importance and awareness etc.), Certificate Courses in CAD/CAM Softwares (Pro-E, Creo, ANSYS, Hypermesh etc.) and events like ‘SANJIVANI i-Connect’ (by renowned industry expert) and ‘MY STORY BOARD’ (by Distinguished Alumni of the department sharing their experience) for the benefit of the students. The department also has a dynamic departmental association MESA, students’ chapter of SAE which organize various competitions for the all-round development of students. Students are also encouraged to participate in national events like e-Yantra Robotics Competition, KPIT-Sparkle, Aakruti Competition, Smart India Hackathon, Robocon, DRDO Druce, Facebook Sparkle E-BAJA, M-BAJA etc.
The department also organizes ‘SANJIVANI TECH-FEST’, a National level conference for the students based on their final year projects. Department of Mechanical Engineering has also articulated and organized a number of workshops like, ‘Condition Monitoring using FFT Analyser’, ‘Workshop on English Communication Skills’, ‘Hands on Microstructural Characterization using Optical Microscopy’ etc. to update technical skills and knowledge of staff in various domains.
To develop world class, multidimensional, competent, disciplined and ethical Mechanical engineers for the society.
To impart the quality education to the students through class-room teaching, innovative projects, and industry-institution interaction.
To provide a better environment to encourage and support participation in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
To use technology of Mechanical Engineering as a prime tool for the multifaceted development of our students in the emerging fields of Engineering.
