Meet the H.o.D.

Welcome to the School of Mechanical Engineering (ME) at MIT-World Peace University!

Mechanical engineers have an important role to play in practically every industry; be it automotive, aerospace, chemical, process or electronics. Be it sports, medical or any product development; mechanical engineers contribute to it substantially. Mechanical engineers deal with thermal and fluid science, material science, design, manufacturing and maintenance of products, systems and processes over entire product life cycle. In todays’ world, role of mechanical engineer has expanded from conventional design and manufacturing job to offering solutions to complex interdisciplinary problems. Mechanical engineers have to form and lead professional teams across the globe to achieve this. We at MIT WPU School of Mechanical Engineering strive to imbibe in our students the skills needed in these stupendous tasks.

School of Mechanical Engineering is a flagship school of MIT-WPU right from its inception in 1983. With highly experienced faculty and state- of-the-art laboratories, we impart fundamental knowledge as well as core skills in the areas of mechanical, thermal and electromechanical systems. The school also provides ample opportunities to experience the excitement of national and international technical events. School has two students’ organizations; ASME [Association of Students of Mechanical Engineering] and SAE [Society of Automotive Engineers] students’ chapter. Sound support to BAJA, SUPRA, Go Cart and Robocon teams and strong efforts to develop all-round personality of our students have always been the pillars of our reputation.

School of Mechanical Engineering has ongoing research projects in the areas of Polymer Composites, Solar-Thermal Engineering, Fatigue and Fracture Analysis, Robotics and Refrigeration & Air Conditioning. We encourage undergraduate students to participate in these research efforts through mini projects. Graduates from our school are employed in premier Mechanical Engineering industries and a good number pursues higher studies in renowned universities abroad as well as IITs and NITs in India.

Our founder’s vision includes strengthening the freedom of our great nation by building winning personalities out of our students. I welcome you to the School of Mechanical Engineering and be a part of our journey towards nation building.

Ongoing Research Projects

Design, Development and Proto building a Solar energy driven Desiccant & Ejector based Environmental friendly Air conditioning system

Principle Investigator- Prof. Mrs. A. A. Nene
Ejector based air conditioning :

Develop ejector based cooling system using R-134a as refrigerant with solar thermal heat input, convectional condenser and evaporator works at pressure of 7-12 bar and 3-4 bar respectively and same can be used in ejector based cooling system as it is. It is only required to design ejector and generator for higher pressure additionally.

Performance Evaluation of Reactive Muffler, MAEER's Maharashtra Institute of Technology (MIT) ,Pune

Principle Investigator- Prof. M. V. Kulkarni

In the society, Noise pollution created by engines becomes a vital concern when used in residential areas or areas where noise creates hazard. Issues concerning the design and use of large-scale silencers are more prevalent today than ever before. The main sources of noise in an engine are the exhaust noise and the noise produced due to friction of various parts of the engine. The exhaust noise is the most dominant.

The objective is to reduce the noise created by engines with the help of muffler designed for high transmission loss because Noise pollution created by engines becomes a vital concern in the society.

The Experimental Test Rig has been developed for measurement of Transmission Loss with either Two Source method or Two Load Method.

Design and Development of an indigenous autonomous lab Heliostat Model with Tracking Mechanism and Solar Flux Measurement System for Heliostat Principal

Principle Investigator – Prof. P. M. Gadhe

Central Receiver system is having higher concentration ratio as compared to other concentrated solar power techniques. The solar flux density distribution and the temperature on the receiver plate are important parameters to assess the peak flux and net thermal energy of any concentrated Solar Power Concentrating System. The objective of the current research work is to estimate the solar flux density distribution on the receiver plate of the central receiver system. The solar flux density measurement of a ganged type solar heliostat system is measured by using a thermocouple method. This method is a simple method and gives a good visualization of the temperature distribution on the focus plate and hence can be very useful for collector and receiver design.
