From HOD's Desk

Mechanical Engineering is an evergreen field of engineering by any count, be it placement, entrepreneurship or research. It is vast and is classified into thermal engineering, design engineering, production engineering and industrial engineering. Aspirants will have plenty of choices to form their career path.It is a comprehensive program preparing its aspirants in variety of sub fields, offering links to Electronics Engineering through Mechatronics and to Computer Engineering through Computer aided manufacturing.

State-of–the-art lab facilities and tool room centre and Innovation centre at the back end in our institute will make our students distinctly different from others. Independent CAD lab augmented with tool room centre with CNC machines will offer multitude hands on to our students and give complete exposure in computer aided manufacturing (CAM). Latest engines with MPFI, CRDI, Variable compression ratio/multi fueled engines, Refrigeration and Airconditioning rigs, and automation enabled Mechatronics lab will transform learning into a dream experience. Apt faculty will add more value to aspirants’ learning.

The course is approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). The course is of 4 years duration each year consisting of 2 semesters. At present the course has sanctioned intake capacity of 60 students per year.


The mechanical engineer is perceived as one who is engaged in a diverse profession encompassing design, manufacturing, analysis, synthesis and optimisation for a wide variety of mechanical systems for better comfort and survival of mankind. Hence, we in Mechanical Engineering Department at AITD envision to emerge as centre of excellence in Mechanical Engineering in the state of Goa and our nation moulding all its aspirants to be adaptable to the dynamic needs of society and innovations in Mechanical Engineering keeping the dignity, dedication and work ethic at its forefront.
