Programme Educational Objectives
To provide students with a sound foundation in the mathematical, scientific and engineering fundamentals necessary to formulate, solve and analyze engineering problems and to prepare them for graduate studies (Fundamental Knowledge);
To develop the ability among students to synthesize data and technical concepts for application to product design (Professional Skills);
To provide opportunity for students to work as part of teams on multidisciplinary projects (Leadership Skills);
To prepare students for successful careers in industry that meet the needs of Indian and multinational companies (Technical and Managerial Skills);
To promote student awareness of the life-long learning and to introduce them to professional ethics and codes of professional practice (Ethics and Life-long Learning); and
To provide students experience with the multifaceted aspects of using computers to solve problems and present results with word processing, spreadsheet, presentation and professional level applications software used for design and analysis and to provide for obtaining and the use of information on the world wide web (Computational Skills).
Ability to apply fundamental knowledge in mathematics, science and engineering relevant to mechanical engineering;
Ability to design and conduct experiments, interpret and analyze data, and report results;
Ability to design a mechanical system or a thermal system or a process that meets desired specifications and requirements;
Ability to identify, formulate and solve mechanical engineering problems;
Ability to use current techniques, skills and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice; [Ability to here implies that students have actually participated in the performance of a function or action to an extent that demonstrates the potential to properly apply that skill in their profession.]
Broad understanding of the impact of engineering on society and demonstrate awareness of contemporary issues;
Demonstrate an understanding of their professional and ethical responsibilities and apply them in professional engineering practice;
Ability to function effectively individually and in teams, including diverse and multidisciplinary teams, to accomplish a common goal; [Multidisciplinary refers to fields that are diverse in scope and nature and include sub-disciplines such as electrical, electronics / computer engineering.]
Ability to communicate effectively in both verbal and written forms;
Understanding of engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects; and
Capability of self-education and clearly understand the value of lifelong learning. [Mechanical Engineering is constantly changing discipline that, for its practitioners, clearly requires “lifelong learning." Although Lifelong learning referred here cannot be documented throughout the students (or alumni’s) life, we take the fact that students recognize the need for lifelong learning and currently have the skills necessary to continue their learning as demonstrated in developing their knowledge and skills throughout their careers.]
