Basic Mechanical Engineering Laboratory
Several experiments are performed enabling students to understand the basic concepts of mechanical engineering. This lab consists of models of two-stroke and four-stroke C.I. & S.I. engines, brakes, clutches, different types of gears, different types of boilers, boilers mounting and accessories, and special engines like Wankel engine and Turbojet engine.
Mechanism & Machines Laboratory
The lab consists of models of mechanisms, governors, balancing machine, Coriolis apparatus, Gyroscope and Universal Vibration apparatus.
Mechanics of Material Laboratory
A 1000 KN Universal Testing Machine has been installed under MODROBS project funded by AICTE facilitating a large number of experiments and research. Several other material testing machines are also under the process of acquisition. Building materials used locally are also being tested in this lab.
Material Testing Laboratory
A hardness testing machine, an impact testing machine, a torsion testing machine and a fatigue testing machine are used for testing of mechanical properties of materials as a part of students curriculum as well as project and research purposes.
Heat Transfer Laboratory
Experiments including the determination of thermal conductivities of solids, liquids, powder and composite walls, determination of Stefan-Boltzman´s constant, heat pipe demonstrations, determination of the emissivity of a black-body are conducted.
Fluid Mechanics Laboratory
Test set-ups for the study of Bernoulli´s Theorem, Vortex flow, Pipe friction, and for the determination of Reynold´s number, Hydraulic coefficients of orifice and notch, Metacentric height of a ship model are available.
A four-stroke, four cylinder petrol engine test rig and a four-stroke, four cylinder diesel engine test rig have been installed for performing various experiments.
Metrology & Instrumentation Laboratory
Various testing devices like gauges, planimeter, stroboscope, bevel protector, etc. give a proper and practical insight into the metrology sector. The gauges and measuring devices help the students to gain practical knowledge which can be implemented in their project works.
CAD/Machine Design Laboratory
The Creo software has been procured in order to enhance the drafting knowledge of students’ related to designing of various mechanical parts and equipments.
Advanced Manufacturing Laboratory
A CNC machine has been installed in the department under MODROBS project.
Refrigeration and Air-conditioning Laboratory
Vapour Compression Refrigeration, Vapour Absorption Refrigeration, Ice making, Air-conditioning test rigs have been procured under AICTE schemes. A model of cooling tower developed by the students has also been added to this lab.
Fuel Injection Centre
A new state of the art "Fuel Injection Lab" has been established with the help of BOSCH Ltd. Furthermore, a training centre of BOSCH is expected to be started soon.
Steam Generating Unit
A fire tube package type boiler of steam generating capacity 1120kg/hr has been installed in order to demonstrate the working of industrial boilers.The First Year students also attend Physics and Chemistry Laboratories and Mechanical workshop.
There is a departmental library where the students can access various textbooks and reference books.
Over the last few years, altogether 40 research papers have been published by the faculty members of the department. Out of these, 15 papers have been published in International Journals.
Students regularly participate in workshops like aero-modelling, robotics, winter school on engineering etc. Students get involved in co-ordination activity relating to such workshops.
The department in collaboration with Students’ chapter of the Institution of Engineers (India), Assam State Centre conducts seminars and workshops on a weekly basis. Interactive programmes are also held regularly. "Yantrik Cult" is an initiative by the Mechanical Engineering students which organizes technical talks, workshops, etc. along with several steps towards social development.
