Departmental Profile
The D
epartment of Mechanical Engineering has been contributing its humble share of the
Mechanical Engineering graduates for National needs since 2001. Several graduates who
have passed out of this department are occupying responsible
positions in various
Engineering Industries like Kirloskar, Steel Authority of India Limited, Tata Consultancy
Services, Engineers India Limited, Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited, Infosys,
Bharat Heavy Electrical Limited, Swaraj, Sonalika, Torrent T
echnologies and holding
responsible positions in the premier educational institutes in and outside India.
Department has encouraged faculty and other staff to attend/organize various STC,
workshop, seminar and conferences. Department has organized expert
lectures on
different research areas by the experts of national repute institutes for the benefit of
students and faculty. Department has sponsored a number of faculties and other staff
members for higher studies under QIP. Punjab Technical University has
also established a
regional study center for Post

graduation course Master of Technology in Thermal
Engineering since 2004.

Evaluation of Students Academic Performance
Students’ academic performance is evaluated by internals and external
examinations. Weightages to
theory and practical examination is given below:
Theory
60% Weightage is assigned for external examination.
40% Weightage is assigned internal examination. 60% of the total internal
evaluation is based upon the sessional marks. 20% of total internal ev
aluation
is based upon attendance and rest 20% is based upon assignments & tutorials
work.
Practical
40% Weightage is assigned for external examination.
60% Weightage is assigned internal examination. 66% of the total internal
evaluation is based upon i
ndividuals’ lab performance and practical

notebook,
17% of total internal evaluation is based upon attendance and rest 17% is based
upon internal practical viva.
Every semester, the Institute conducts three sessional tests as per following
University inst
ructions:
1
st
sessional covers
5
0% of the total syllabus.
2
nd
sessional covers next
5
0% of the syllabus.
3
rd
sessional covers remaining
10
0% of the syllabus.
Each sessional examination is divided into following sections:
Section A consists of four questio
ns carrying 2 marks each (total 8
marks) all questions are compulsory.
Section B consists of three questions out of which a student is to
attempt two question each question carries 4 marks (total 8 marks).
Section C consists of two questions out of which a
student is to attempt
one question carrying 8 marks.
During the four year course of B. Tech. each student has to undergo three practical
training.
(i) Practical Training
–
I (Six weeks)
It is a six weeks institutional/industrial training after the 2
nd
se
mester. The student is
evaluated out of a total of 100 marks, in which 60 marks are for internal and 40 marks
for external.
(ii)Practical Training

II (Six weeks)
It is a week’s institutional/industrial training after the 4
th
semester. The student is
evalua
ted out of total of 100 marks, in which 60 marks are for internal and 40 marks
for external.
(iii) Practical Training

III / Six months Industrial Training
It is a six months industrial training and is conducted in 7
th
or 8
th
semester in a reputed
industr
y. There is a joint appraisal during the six month period which is conducted by
the training manager / supervisor from the industry and teacher from the college. The
appraisal is based on project work and presentation made by student. The teacher
makes two
visits during the training and evaluates the student. The student is
evaluated out of 1000 marks in which 500 marks are for internal and 500 marks for
external.
Course Structure and Teaching Schedule
