About the Department

The department of Mechanical Engineering was established in the year 2012. The department offers an Under Graduate program in Mechanical Engineering. The program was approved by the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE), India. The sanctioned seats are 60 per academic year and the enrolment for the program takes place during the month of June.  The Department comprises of 13 highly qualified teaching faculties from the various domains of mechanical engineering and 8 experienced technical assistants with their guidance and assistance students have excelled in their academics.  The Class ambiance gives the students a platform to develop their creativity and innovation. The department has 10 laboratories with all the required equipment that gives real time exposure to the students.  In addition to this internship programs and field visits are part of the program.


The mechanical engineer is perceived as one who is engaged in a diverse profession encompassing design, manufacturing, analysis, synthesis and optimization 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 center 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.


  • To offer an outstanding, professionally oriented and applied research reinforced programme that will bring a reformation in manufacturing industries and technical services in the state of Goa and our nation.
  • To mould students into engineers of future on par with global standards in mechanical engineering with meticulous practical skills blended with sound theoretical knowledge in emerging trends.
  • To transform young minds into citizens with strongly rooted ethics that will evolve the mechanical engineers as architect of a stronger nation.
  • To provide an exposure to the emerging and innovative technology and collaborative research in mechanical engineering to strengthen the industry-academic partnership for the mutual benefit.
  • To provide knowledge of contemporary issues.


  • To establish the department as an excellent academic centre by innovating and enhancing Teaching – Learning process through expertise and modern laboratories

Teaching - Learning

1. Indian Society of Heating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ISHARE)

The student’s chapter of Indian Society of Heating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ISHRAE) of Agnel Institute of Technology and Design is started in the year 2016 in the presence of office bearers of ISHRAE, Goa Chapter. This chapter actively organizes technical events like Expert talks, workshops and Field visits for students’ joint hand with ISHRAE. It’s a part of filling the curriculum gaps.

2. Society Of Automative Engineers (SAE )

The SAE India collegiate club had been formed in AITD during the academic year 2015-16 with 53 students as registered members. Our students also participated in the Virtual BAJA SAEINDIA 2015 competition hosted at Chitkara University, Punjab.
