Profile

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 in wide interdisciplinary fields as well. To meet the above requirements, Mechanical Engineering Department offers B. E. (Mech.) degree with an intake of 180 students, M.E. degree in Design Engineering with an intake of 18 students and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering. Mechanical 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 the period of five years. 

The department has well qualified and dedicated staff (39 in numbers, 10 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 examination consistently (till date 15 students got listed in Top-10, with recently Miss. Snehal Mohite secured 2nd rank in TE-May2018 exam at university). There are 14 laboratories in the department, a separate CAD/CAM laboratory has been developed with various softwares such as Ideas, Master-Cam, ANSYS, Pro-ENGINEER, Unigraphics-NX4, CNC2000 etc. Moreover, CNC milling and lathe machines, Robotic Workstations and Electric Discharge Machine have been added. Engine emission testing equipment like CO-HC 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 and IOT CLUB for all development of students, and has signed MOUs with industries for Technical Knowledge exchange. Our institute Sanjivani COE has gone for gradual Academic Autonomy from June-2019 under SPPU Pune University, so as to upgrade the Syllabi in specific and entire Curriculum in general so as to meet the challenges of 21st Century.

As per the needs of the industry, the department is also conducting various activities viz. Skill Development (Auto Lisp Programming, IIT-B PYTHON courses), Training Programs (SAP, Microsoft Excel Basic, CNC-Program), 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), Certificate Courses in CAD/CAM softwares (like Pro-E, Creo, ANSYS, Hypermesh etc.) and ‘MY STORY BOARD’ events, wherein the Distinguished Alumni of the department shares their experience for the benefit of students. The department has a departmental association ‘MESA’ and students’ chapter of SAE which organizes various competitions for the all-round development of students. Students are also encouraged to participate in national events like KPIT Sparkle, Aakruti Competition, Smart India Hackathon, Robocon, DRDO Druce, Facebook Sparkle etc.

The department also organizes ‘SANJIVANI TECH-FEST’, a National Conference for the students based on their BE projects. Department of Mechanical Engineering has also organized 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 skill and knowledge of staff in various domains.

 

Vision of Department

Our vision is to develop world class, multidimensional, competent, disciplined and ethical Mechanical engineers for our society in particular and country in general to achieve global recognition. 


Mission of Department

Our mission is to impart the technology of Mechanical Engineering to the students through class-room teaching, research involvement, innovative projects, and industry-institution interaction in addition to co-curricular & extra-curricular activities. We are committed to the use of technology of Mechanical Engineering as a prime tool for the multifaceted development of our students in the emerging fields of Engineering.
