Vision: Excellence in Mechanical Engineering for Global Acceptance

Mission:

  • Make spirited mechanical engineers with morals, values and principles for sustainable development of society.

  • Strive continuously to impart knowledge and skills of the highest standards.

  • Our engineers will respond to the current and future needs of the industry, higher studies as well as research.

Mechanical Engineering plays a critical role in manufactured technologies, from cars to 
airplanes to refrigerators. It enables you to do many daily activities with ease, as it brings 
helpful technologies to our modern society. This field has continually evolved to 
incorporate advancements; today Mechanical engineers are pursuing developments in the 
area of composite and Mechatronics. It is also overlap with Aerospace, Metallurgical, Manufacturing and Industrial engineering. The Mechanical engineers may also work in the 
field of Biomedical Engineering. The present era demands the Engineers who have the 
capacity of adaptability and creativity in the new technical areas. To meet the above 
requirements, Vishwakarma Institute of Information Technology (VIIT) started 
Undergraduate Mechanical Engineering course in 2007-08, Postgraduate course in 2012 
and PhD course from 2014-15 in Pune. The Undergraduate course is two times NBA 
Accredited.
The Mechanical Engineering department has well Qualified, Experienced and committed 
faculty towards high academic standards, Industry connects and Research. The Department 
expertise is distributed in three domain namely Design, Heat power, Manufacturing and 
Materials. The curriculum balance through industrial involvement, scope of projects with 
project based learning (PBL) and industrial internships are the important outcomes of 
these domains. The department has PhD Research Guides who ensures the collective 
involvement of PhD, M-Tech and B.Tech students in their research work. 
The Department has collaborative projects going on with various companies such as Atlas 
copco, Fluid Control, Aakar Foundary etc. The SUPRA and BAJA students technical activity 
is initiated in department since from 2012 and is consistently with in 10th rank in overall 
participation. This activity involves design and manufacturing of vehicle as per assigned 
standards and specification. The Mechanical Engineering Student Association (MESA) is an 
active team of students behind organization of Technical and Extra Curricular activities of 
the department.
During the Pandemic situation arise due to COVID19 from the middle of March 2020, the 
Department Teaching Learning, Examination, Evaluation and Research activities are 
continued their effective functioning with online mode. The Students and faculties 
contribute their excellence through development of products which includes easy 
sanitization mechanism, mask manufacturing and its distribution along with donation of 
funds.
