The department of Mechanical Engineering was established in the year 1990 during initial years of inception of the then Dr. B.R.Ambedkar Regional Engineering College, Jalandhar. Department has developed the necessary infrastructure for the undergraduate B Tech courses in Mechanical Engineering. These facilities are also catering to the needs of other departments of the institute. Over the years a number of faculty members have improved their qualifications through regular Quality improvement programmes and part time post graduate programmes. Now the department is concentrating on Research and development and consultancy activities. M Tech (through research) in Mechanical Engineering and Ph D programmes have been approved by the senate of the institute. The department has put forward certain objectives with a mission and vision for the future.
The mission of the Mechanical Engineering program is to provide quality education to students in the area of Mechanical Engineering so that they are qualified for professional work, or to pursue graduate study.
Mechanical Engineering program will blend the core and elective courses to give effective education to the students to offer. Knowledge of basic principles of science, mathematics and engineering which are fundamental to machine design, thermal engineering, materials, and manufacturing. Opportunities to develop the ability to apply basic principles of science, mathematics and engineering to identify, formulate and solve practical problems related to machine design, thermal science, materials and manufacturing through the use of computer technology. Possibility to improve creativity for system design component and process design. Opportunity to prepare for profession or research in the relevant areas.
