Mechanical Engineering
The Mechanical Engineering Department has roots at Dharmsinh Desai University that go back to the founding of the University in 1968. The mechanical department is separated in a latest building called “NARAYAN BHAVAN” where all the laboratories are set up neatly and systematically. The workshop is separated from the main building and been divided into three buildings where workshops for 1st year students, workshop for higher semesters of mechanical students and latest foundary with all accessories are established and are located behind the administrative office. It hosts the facilities of various machine tools which are fully equipped at the latest technology. The department was initially established in 1968 to support the subjects of mechanical engineering which are included in the course structure of other engineering fields. In 2010, the department started its first batch of 60 students for under graduation in B.Tech Mechanical Engineering. Since its establishment, the department has grown in its full strength to reach the highest academic levels and help the university in various research works. Currently, it is the most developed department which consists of all kinds of the automated machines with necessary tools which are used by the industries. All the machines  installed are same as used in industries. This helps in understanding the growth in research work of the field and how the necessary requirements were met with respect to the needs of the technician and industry.  The faculty recruited at the department provides dynamism and flexibility in expanding the knowledge.
