Manufacturing practical from different Engineering work-trades like Welding, Fitting, Tin-Smithy, Plastic Injection Molding, Carpentry, Pattern Making,forming, Casting, Machining etc., are conducted in this department for the students of various disciplines. All the students of First year engineering (F.Y.B.Tech.) irrespective of their disciplines and students from Mechanical stream, (S.Y.B.Tech) onward perform their practical in this department.

Workshop department provides facilities like CNC turning centre, conventional Lathes, Universal Milling Machine, Radial  drilling machine, Surface Grinding machine, Welding machines etc. Department conducts various machining demonstrations by which students get ample information on different materials in engineering practices with respect to their workability, formability and machinability with hand tools and power tools and to develop skills through hands on experience.

During Workshop Practical, students are given enough knowledge about the different machines, hand tools, measuring instruments and the different processes which are commonly used to give different shape and size to the work piece. Technical staff of workshop is helping the students throughout the year besides the academic work with great interest for preparing the working models, supporting devices for different technical and cultural events, project work etc.

The department is heavily involved in carrying out the manufacturing activities with the help of some sophisticated equipments such as lathe dynamometer, surface roughness tester, composite material impact testing machine, profilometer etc for the research activities as well as for the undergraduate and post graduate  training for the students throughout the institute in every semester. With the assistance of quality technical staff, UG and PG students are able to carry out the fabrication work for their B.Tech, M.Tech. Project work as well as other models under technical activities such as BAJA, SUPRA,GO-CAR,ATV CAR, ROBOT and AVISHKAR,FIRODIA etc.
