prosperity and growth of GDP of a developing nation like us,
depends largely on the expansion of industry and manufacturing
activities. Presently the booming Indian economy needs huge
technical and skilled manpower specially in core engineering
streams to implement the mega projects waiting in the pipeline,
viz, Steel industry, Super thermal power station, metallurgical
industries etc. Thus in the coming years there will be huge
requirement of intelligent and competent Mechanical Engineers
for Design, R & D, Manufacturing, Academic Research in modern
In this perspective, Hooghly Engineering and Technology College,
has introduced Mechanical Engineering course from this year
[2010-11]. To impart comprehensive practical training to our
students, we have a modern and well equipped workshop consisting
of (i) Carpentry Shop; (ii) Fitting Shop; (iii) Machine
Shop; (iv) Pattern Shop; (v) Welding Shop; (vi) Foundry Shop;
(vii) Tin Smithy Shop.
The college has already established well equipped following
state of the art laboratories for ME Department:-
1. IC Engine Laboratory.
2. Graphics Laboratory equipped with AutoCAD.
3. Fluid Mechanics Laboratory.
4. Strength of Materials Laboratory.
5. Electrical Machines Laboratory.
The students of ME Department will enjoy the best facilities and
equipment essential to learn the frontier technologies like
Mechatronics, Automation, CAD – CAM, CIM, Robotics, CNC Machine,
Industrial Engg, Tribology and Terotechnology, Computer Graphics
and Solid Modeling, Analysis and Synthesis of Linkages and
Machines, Optoelectronics and Laser material processing,
Advanced Sensors and NDT etc in the days to come.
