About Department

Department of Mechanical Engineering at Parul Institute of Engineering & Technology (PIET) was established in the year 2003. Department offers undergraduate program in Mechanical Engineering as well as post graduate programs in Thermal Engineering & Internal Combustion Engine and Automobile Engineering.
Department was accredited by NBA for three years from 10.2.2009. Further M. Tech in Thermal Engineering was accredited by NBA for three years starting from 2016.
Systematically designed industry oriented curriculum and dedicated faculty members from IIT, NIT & other well-known institutes of India make this department a dynamic place to study. The department is well equipped with Research Laboratories enriched with latest software such as: ANSYS, Fluent CFX, HTRI, CREO etc.
To promote the research among the stake holders, Department has organized numerous short term training programs, national conferences, seminars and workshops on emerging areas of Mechanical Engineering. Recently department has fetched three grants from Department of Science & Technology for organizing seminar on the latest trends of Mechanical Engineering i.e Nano Technology, Natural Fibre Composites and Solar Engineering.
As a part of Industry Institute Interaction, Researchers from Parul University along with the professionals from Larsen & Toubro Ltd. and University of Surrey, UK have successfully completed the Project titled "To Reduce Water Consumption and Optimize Efficiency of Thermal Power Plants by using Air Cooled Condensers" funded by Royal Academy of Engineering - UK under the Higher Education partnership - India Program (Newton Bhabha Fund).
To bring out student's potentials, various Students Chapters like ISHRAE, SAE, ASME, IEI & IIW are established and successfully flourishing in Mechanical Department.
