Mechanical Engineering is often referred to as the basic engineering discipline
because whatever field of engineering one wishes to major in, the basics of
Mechanical Engineering come in handy in the effective design, development and
optimization of equipment and devices used in any industrial activity. The
outcome of any Mechanical Engineering effort manifests itself as consumer
durables and capital equipment for manufacture and energy conversion. Mechanical
Engineering also plays a significant role in maintenance activities of all
types.all types.he design, selection, installation, maintenance and upkeep of production facilities, in addition to the direct supervisory need of the shop floor. In addition, auxiliary units provide opportunities for self-employment to trained and enterprising mechanical engineers.
The demand for trained manpower is likely to increase manifold with increasing values, growing competition and greater sophistication in design, production and testing facilities. The Mechanical Engineering program at GCET was started in 1997 with an annual intake of 60 students to meet this ever-increasing demand for mechanical engineers in the country.
