Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering is a discipline of engineering that applies the principles of physics and materials science for analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is the branch of engineering that involves the production and usage of heat and mechanical power for the design, production, and operation of machines and tools. It is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in 2006 with the aim to provide best knowledge and environment. The duration of the course is 4 years and the degree offered is Bachelor of Technology in Mechanical Engineering. This Department is one of the key strengths of the Institute. The intake of the department is 210 students per year. It is making very sincere efforts to produce excellent Mechanical Engineering graduates to meet the present day needs of organizations and the Industry.

The experienced and dedicated faculties along with its excellent facilities provide the necessary resources to keep the students updated with the latest industrial trends. The department has created state of the art infrastructure in terms of Workshops, Laboratories and other facilities for smooth implementation of the B-Tech/M-Tech Program.

Placement Oriented Training Outside AKTU Curriculum

What RD Engineering College does differently?

To bridge the gap between the university curriculum & industry requirement, we provide free of cost, in house training programs by industry expects in addition to the academics. The following programs start from 2nd year: -
  • Soft Training Skills Aptitude, Group Discussion, Personal Interviews, Extempore, Communication Skill Enhancement, Leadership Training, Dress Sense, Protocol, Fine Dining
  • Technical TrainingCAD/CAM, Robotics, AutoCad, SolidWords, ANsys, C Language, Python
  • SSB Training SSB Training is given by former members of the Selection Board to students interested in joining the Armed Forces (Army, Navy & Airforce)

The performance of students is regularly evaluated through online and offline tests throughout the year. 

Benefits of the In-house training programs

The unique facilities and programs have benefited our students tremendously, showing striking improvement in their personality, confidence and employability. The college can take justifiable credit for the following: -
  • As a result of our training, students of Mechanical Engineering qualified Online Global Certification Test Conducted by Autodesk (USA). More than 150 students secured above 80% marks, a tremendous achievement by Industry Standards.
  • A large number of proud RDECians got campus placed in Army, Airforce & Navy and have got commissioned
  • 180 3rd year students are trained in Python every year, which leads to better placement in domains like Machine Learning. This also helps future data scientists, and students pursuing higher education internationally.
  • RDEC has tie-up with Army Base Workshops one year paid apprenticeship conducted by the Government of India agencies for students. to make them competent to appear in Government Jobs, Defence Forces, Ordnance factories, railways, PSUs
  • Nasscom-Aricent Training/Employability Programs rates RD Engineering College as Rank 2 in the entire NCR region.
  • The performance of students is regularly evaluated through Studybud Online Platform for AQ, LA & VA. The key benefits of this platform is is that students can view videos, attend lectures to improve their soft skills

The Above Training Programs & learning at Innovation Centers helped students to achieve 85% placement through Campus Drives in all previous years!

Industrial Training & Corporate Resource Center (ITCRC)

The college has setup ITCRC in association with leading companies around the globe to help students with placements. The ME department students get to work on live projects in companies like Godrej. Moreover, students are enrolled into the Python Programming Lab in which they are taught Python Programming. The above is all Free of Cost!
