About the Department

Introduced in 2013, The department imparts comprehensive foundation in mechanical engineering through various courses in the fields of fluid and thermal sciences, design and manufacturing. Apart from the core activities, the department also conducts regular symposiums, workshops, industrial visits and hands-on sessions to inculcate practical knowledge that aligns with the needs of the industry. The Mechanical Engineering department has 13 full-fledged, well- equipped labs including the ISO 9001:2015 certified workshop, CNC lab equipped with various CNC kits such as 2 axis, 3 axis, 4 axis Lathe and Milling machines as well as a Robotic arm. In addition, a state of the art exclusive training center of Royal Enfield is established in the School of Technology.

  • A group of B.Tech students has worked in Non traditional machining of Titanium alloy. They worked hard to write a research paper and it is accepted in Elsevier-Materials Today Proceeding. The journal is indexed in Scopus database. The same group`s research paper is accepted in an International Conference to be held in August 2020 at Hyderabad.

Innovation and Initiatives

State-of-Art Training Center of Royal Enfield Motorcycles.

As a part of industry-academia tie up activity, a state-of-art technical training facility has been set up in the SoT campus by Royal Enfield motorcycles. ADBU students as well as Royal enfield employees regularly undergo training facility. Students from other institutes too come for undergoing training in the facility.

Surface sanitization UVC gloves developed by students with potential to aid in the fight against COVID 19

Our Mechanical Engineering students of ADBU came up with a special pair of UVC gloves that can sanitize surfaces. The far Ultraviolet C they are using can kill microorganisms without penetrating human skin. Hope this finds a spot in our fight against COVID-19. Designed by Priyanuj Mahanta, 8 Semester and Dikshita Kalita, 6 Semester, 2020. see the video

Training and Placement




The faculty members of the Department always encourage the student to highlight their skills and aptitude in a variety of ways. Some of the initiatives taken in this regard:

  • GATE guidance is given to the final year B.Tech batch every year to encourage them to compete for post graduation courses and job opportunities.
  • All students are alloted a mentor every semester to guide and sort out any academic and personal issue .
  • Industrial visit, workshop and departmental symposium is frequently organised every semester to give an exposure to all the students.
  • Students are encouraged to participate in intra and inter institutional events to showcase their abilities in cultural, technical and sports activities.
  • A good number of IT and core companies participate on campus to offer job opportunities to the final year students of the Department every year.
