Mechanical engineering (tool and die) is the branch of engineering that applies the principles of physics and material science for analysis, design, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical system. It involves the production and usage of making design for the tool, production and operation of machines.
This field requires an understanding of core concepts including mechanics, Thermodynamics, Material science, Jigs and fixtures, Press tools, Forging dies and Plastic Engineering. Tool and Die Engineers use these core principles along with the tools like computer aided manufacturing, computer integrated manufacturing, and Product life cycle management to design and analyze plants, equipments and machineries.
The Department of Mechanical Tool & Die Engineering is well equipped with excellent laboratories. It has well qualified and experienced staff. Presently the intake capacity to the programme is 60 students. The course is spread over a span of 3 years, each year comprising of 2 semesters. At the end of each semester, examinations are conducted by the Sate Board of Technical Education, Panchkula.
