Mechanical engineers build the world around us. From the tiniest nanotechnology, to cars and airplanes, buildings and space stations, mechanical engineers are responsible for the design and development of most things.
Studying mechanical engineering is a combination of science, maths, and computing. It’s the study of mechanisms and machinery and how to manufacture and maintain it at all levels. It’s a limitless subject, which plays a role in everything from vehicles to cities, energy to artificial intelligence, military to healthcare, and everything in between.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering in MIMIT, Malout is amongst the best Mechanical Engineering departments in Punjab, having 10+ Hi-Tech. labs equipped with 10+ labs and modern machining systems like CNC machines and Flexible manufacturing cell to provide an extra edge to the existing curriculum which focuses on developing a strong basic knowledge and practical skills.
