We are sending our department staff to attend refresher courses, short-term courses, and conferences to update their knowledge.
All the laboratories of the department are well established including CAD/CAM Laboratory, which contains advanced equipment like Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Machine and sophisticated packages, like CATIA V5, SOLIDWORKS, COSMOS, PRO-E2001, ANSYS 8.1, AUTO-CAD 2004, UNIGRAPHICS 17 and HYPERMESH.
We have conducted a state level seminar on “Finite Element Methods (FEM) “ in 2002 and a National level workshop on “Computational Methods in Engineering in 2005.
Present Intake of B.Tech Programme : 120
