Mechanical engineers need to play a vital role in development, operation and manufacturing of new machines, devices and processes to benefit mankind. They need to apply their creative imagination and professional skills in a variety of situations. So, the Department of Mechanical Engineering at NIET, Greater Noida imparts technical know-how to the students, promote their problem-solving skills and involve them in the innovation of new technologies.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering at NIET is continuously striving to achieve excellence in education, academics and industry-oriented research & consultancy work to serve the society. The faculty members of the department are engaged in the research in classical as well as in upcoming areas of Mechanical Engineering. The department has active chapters of various technical bodies such as ISHRAE, SAE, ISTE, etc. Also the Mercedes-Benz Centre of Excellence and PTC Centre of Excellence including Industry 4.0, Automation Lab, PTC Creo Lab, Robotics Lab, 3D-Printing & Reverse Engineering Lab and Smart Manufacturing lab has been recently developed in the department. All the programs of the department accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA), MHRD, Government of India, New Delhi.
We aim to provide our students with a perfect blend of intellectual and practical experiences that help them to serve the society and address a variety of needs. State-of-the-art laboratories like modern optimization, Design and Graphics Involved Research Lab and Computer Integrated Manufacturing Lab have been established in the department. The department maintains the following laboratories for instruction and research:
Engine Research Laboratory
Smart Materials & Structures Lab
CAD, CAM & Manufacturing Science Laboratory
