Production Engineering

Department of Production Engineering

Production engineering (PE) is an interdisciplinary engineering  that includes manufacturing technology, engineering sciences, management science, and optimization of complex processes, systems, or organizations. It is concerned with the understanding and application of engineering procedures in manufacturing processes and production methods.  The goal is to accomplish the manufacturing processes effectively and efficiently. The curriculum of Production engineering encompasses the contents with engineering materials, Manufacturing Technologies, Tool enigeering, Metrology, Mechatronics,Robotics, Industrial Engineering and other advanced Manufacturing systems. In a typical  industry, once the design is realized, production engineering concepts regarding work-study, ergonomics, operation research, tooling, manufacturing management, materials management, production planning, transportaion etc., play important roles in efficient production processes. These deal with integrated design and efficient planning of the entire manufacturing system, which is becoming increasingly challenging with the emergence of sophisticated production methods and control systems.

The Department offers B.Tech. (Production Engineering), M.Tech. (Manufacturing technology), M.Tech  (Industrial Engineering and Management) , M.S. and  Ph.D. programmes.

State-of-the-art laboratories are available in the areas of Machining, Forming, Welding, Casting, Robotics, CIM, CNC,  Mechatronics, Modeling, Simulation, Ergonomics, Tribology, Composite materials and Operations Management.  

Many research papers have been published in journals and conferences.  More than 138 Ph.D. degrees were awarded through research guidance by the faculty of Production Engineering. The department offers engineering consultancy in the areas of design, manufacturing and resource management.
