The function of the engineering profession is to manipulate materials, energy and information, thereby creating benefit for humankind. To do this successfully, engineers must have a knowledge of nature that goes beyond mere theory—knowledge that is traditionally gained in educational laboratories. When students, especially undergraduates, go to the laboratory, however, it is not generally to extract some data necessary for a design, to evaluate a new device or to discover a new addition to our knowledge of the world. Each of these functions involves determining something that no one else knows or at least that is not generally available. Students, on the other hand, go to an instructional laboratory to learn something that practicing engineers are assumed to already know.

The department has state-of-the-art laboratories, imparting practical exposure to theoretical learning, in fields of Metrology & Measurement, Fluid Mechanics, Power Plant Engineering, Refrigeration and Air conditioning, Thermal Engineering, Design Engineering, Computer Aided Design, Manufacturing and Production Technology, I.C Engine & Automobile Engineering and Mechanical workshop.
