Structural Engineering and Applied Mechanics
Recognized as Indo Italian Centre of Excellence for Innovative Design and Construction Technology (IDCT) Supported by European Union and Department of Science and Technology New Delhi.
Department of Applied Mechanics has well-equipped laboratories and experienced senior faculty. It is fully involved in the task of teaching the core subjects like Engineering Mechanics for first year engineering students of all disciplines, Strength of Materials, Analysis and Design of reinforced Concrete Structures, Steel Structures, Pre-stressed Concrete Structures and Concrete Technology and Theory of Structures to Civil Engineering discipline.
Since 1998, this department is engaged in teaching PG Courses of Pune University i.e. ME (Structures). About 120 students completed their Post Graduation.
1. The post graduate students are placed in companies for Industrial training during vacations, as summer and winter interns to get industry exposure.
2. The department has five research
The department is also actively engaged in carrying out theoretical and experimental studies of the problems in the field of Structural engineering as a part of the project work for final year students. The Department undertakes testing of the materials and the consultancy work in Structural Engineering from industries and other organizations.
The Department has four laboratories to impart the best practical training to students. These laboratories are:
Applied Mechanics Laboratory.
Strength of Materials and Material Testing laboratory. (which cater to the academic needs of Civil, Mechanical, Polymer, Petroleum, Petrochemical Engineering disciplines.)
Cement and Concrete Laboratory.
Computer Laboratory for P.G.
The Department of Applied Mechanics has a departmental library with good collection of books for the ready reference of the students. Institute membership library facility of lIT Mumbai is made available to students for the benefit of projects, dissertations and references from.
