Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one's own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
Program Specific Outcomes - PSO's
Able to apply the knowledge learned as a part of the curriculum to provide solutions for problems related to Mechanical Engineering.
Think innovatively, design and develop products with modern CAD/CAM tools and with optimized manufacturing processes.
Mechanical engineers build useful products for society. They design and manufacture everything from medical devices to jet engines, and they integrate computer chips into "smart products." Mechanical engineers now reach far beyond the industries traditionally associated with the field, such as transportation and power generation. Mechanical engineers are creating new, important technologies that impact upon every aspect of our lives.
