Mechanical Engineering

The Department of Mechanical Engineering

From manufacturing a nail to the to the working of space machines, it is only and only Mechanical Engineering.

From the Desk of the HOD:

It gives me immense pleasure to lead the department of Mechanical Engineering. Our college is one of the premier institutions, unique like a prism reflecting the manifold shades of learning and Co-curricular activities. Pranveer Singh Institute of Technology is striving hard towards the goal of providing innovative and quality education with high standards to achieve academic excellence.

The very motto of our department is to provide quality education. The process of learning is extremely important in life. What you learn, how you learn and where you learn play a crucial role in developing ones intellectual capability, besides career. Hence on behalf of our Mechanical Engineering Department, I welcome you all to PSIT, Kanpur. Along with academic knowledge, PSIT also trains its Engineers to face the challenges in life by providing many value added courses to enhance their career prospects. The excellent infrastructure and teaching faculty of its best kind ensure quality education through interaction among students, parents and staff. Along with this a Training and Placement Cell ensures a bright future for its students. Thus we are confident that our Engineers will emerge as assets not only to this institution and to the organization they belong, but also to the country at large.

I congratulate the members of faculty and the students for their brilliant efforts. I wish all a great academic career.
Best Wishes,
Dr.(Prof.) Nitin Srivastava
(HOD,Department of Mechanical Engineering)
