Diploma in Mechanical Engineering


Diploma in Mechanical Engineering KPT/JPS(PA 8399)07/22

Diploma in Mechanical Engineering programmes is a discipline of engineering that follows the principles of physics and materials science for analysis, design,manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems. It equips students with more accessible and quality education and provides training to manufacturing or production personnel to meet the needs of manufacturing or production industry.This program helps the students to learn continuously, to accumulate new information and make use of that information to improve upon the technologies, to broaden the sphere of technology applications, to develop novel means of improving the environment and contribute to sustainable economy and improve the quality of life. After successful completion of Diploma in Mechanical Engineering course, students can either continue further Engineering studies in undergraduate level or get employment as junior levels as Production Engineers, Quality Control Engineers and Design Engineers and other such positions.

The program of Diploma in Mechanical Engineering will produce Mechanical Engineering technicians, who are,

•Knowledgeable and skillful in using modern tools in the field of mechanical engineering.

•Professionals in the mechanical manufacturing industry to keep the modern society moving by inculcating values and ethics.

•Able to develop leadership role with good team work and communication for the planning and implementation of mechanical engineering services.

•Capable of using scientific thinking skill to solve the mechanical engineering problems and enhance lifelong learning through continuous professional development

•Able to identify the business opportunities and develop managerial skill for career enhancement in the field of mechanical engineering.

Diploma Mechanical engineers use advanced mathematics and technology to design and implement the systems that make machines and new products function. This course will provide students with industry or job related engineering knowledge, scientific skills, computing and analytical power, mathematical techniques, a sound knowledge of English to communicate in the job field and the ability to apply the problem solving techniques. Those who have completed a graduate certificate program can find careers in the following areas:

• Product design and development

• Research and development

• Power plant management

• Large systems management

• Alternative energy consulting

• Electrical power management

• Manufacturing

• Marketing

Minimum Duration : 42 Months.
Maximum Duration : 84 Months.
