The Mechanical Engineering Department at Goa Engineering College, established in the year 1967, is a community of faculty, staff, students, alumni, industrial and governmental partners—working together to serve the society in the broadest terms through Mechanical Engineering education, research and service. The department offers full time four year undergraduate programme (B. E. in Mechanical Engineering) and part time three year postgraduate programme (M. E. in Industrial Engineering).
The department has consistently excelled in all spheres and the stupendous academic records achieved every passing year by many our students regularly is a testimony to this fact. The department has churned out the best of engineering minds over the last several years in various fields of engineering and our distinguished alumni occupy critical positions in leading firms, both within India and abroad. Our students have also successfully competed and brought laurels to us in various examinations at national and international levels including GATE, GRE, etc.
The faculty is well qualified with rich experience in the almost all fields of Mechanical Engineering including Design, Manufacturing, Thermal and Industrial. The faculty successfully pursued have obtained Ph.D. and Post Doctoral degrees from reputed institutes such as IIT Bombay, NIT Surathkal, NUS Singapore etc. Their contribution is evident from the fact that over 80 research papers in reputed national and international conferences and journals have been published and documented. The department regularly organises workshops and ISTE programmes for faculty as well as industry in the field of statistical decision making, optimization techniques, six sigma, just to mention a few.
The department is well equipped with spacious lecture halls, seminar hall, laboratories, computer centre, and a full-fledged workshop. A laboratory under the project “Centre of Excellence in CAD/ CAM” is established with latest software’s in the field such as CATIA V6, ANSYS, MSC NASTRAN and NCG CAM. Industrial and field visits are organised so as to give the necessary exposure to the students about the industrial environment and processes. Projects undertaken by the undergraduate and post graduate students, mentored by faculty members, have been presented at several national and international conferences. Moreover, a new building which is already under construction will see the light of the day very soon.
The Mechanical Engineering Students’ Association (MESA), started in the year 1992, provides a forum and platform for faculty and students to organize numerous technical seminars, symposiums, presentations, workshops and allied activities throughout the academic year. ‘TORQUE’ is an annual technical event organised that gives the students a platform to showcase their technical as well as management skills. The semi-annual newsletter, NIRZER, provides a knowledge pool to the students and faculty and reflects the happenings in the Department.
In summary, the Mechanical Engineering Department at Goa College of Engineering is committed to carry forth the legacy of its glorious past in contemporary times and is poised to meet all challenges in the future.
