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.
