Welcome to mechanical engineering department at SKN Sinhgad Institute of Technology and Science, Lonavala. Our goal for undergraduate and graduate students is to give them a high-quality engineering education that includes hands-on experience. Each of our faculty members is ready and willing to work in their specialty with capable students on individual projects. Our faculty has two major areas of research: thermal engineering and mechanical design engineering. Both areas strongly supports the growing automotive and manufacturing industries in the state and the region.

We strive to ensure that all our undergraduate students have a strong education with teaming and leadership skills, involvement in student activities, and the practical background of co-op and internship experience. We believe that emphasizing these areas will make our students well qualified to take leadership roles in the future.

Department Vision

We strives for excellence in technical education and research themes with an aim to become globally competitive department.

Department Mission

Department PEO & PO

Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs):

I. Preparation :

To provide opportunity to learn and acquire knowledge of basic mathematical, professional and technical fundamentals, so as to prepare students to succeed in technical profession at global level and to enable them to excel in further education.

II. Core competence:

To develop an ability among students to innovate, communicate, analyze, interpret and apply technical concepts to solve real life problems and to create novel products.

III. Breadth:

To aware and achieve scientific and engineering breadth amongst student through various curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.

IV. Professionalism:

To inculcate professional and ethical attitude in students, to enable them to excel in engineering profession.

V. Learning Environment:

To accomplish overall development of the students; with the aid of activity and project based learning environment.

Program Outcomes (POs):

POs are statements that describe what students are expected to know and be able to do upon graduating from the program. These relate to the skills, knowledge, analytical The POs essentially indicate what the students can do from subject-wise knowledge acquired by them during the program. As such, POs define the professional profile of an engineering graduate. ability attitude and behaviour that students acquire through the program. :

  1. Engineering Knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  2. Problem Analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyse complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
  3. Design/Development of Solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  4. Conduct Investigations of Complex Problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions for complex problems:
  5. i. that cannot be solved by straightforward application of knowledge, theories and techniques applicable to the engineering discipline as against problems given at the end of chapters in a typical text book that can be solved using simple engineering theories and techniques;

    ii. that may not have a unique solution. For example, a design problem can be solved in many ways and lead to multiple possible solutions;

    iii. that require consideration of appropriate constraints / requirements not explicitly given in the problem statement such as cost, power requirement, durability, product life, etc.;

    iv. which need to be defined (modelled) within appropriate mathematical framework;

    v. that often require use of modern computational concepts and tools, for example, in the design of an antenna or a DSP filter.

  6. Modern Tool Usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modelling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  7. The Engineer and Society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
