The under graduate program of Mechanical Engineering department with intake capacity sixty (60) was introduced in 2009, the year of inception of PMEC. The intake capacity was increased to 120 in 2014 considering the demand for the program in the state of Odisha and the neighbouring states as well. Besides, the department has opened post graduate program in Mechanical System Design in 2014 and Production Engineering and Thermal Engineering in 2015 with intake capacities eighteen (18) each. With the sincere effort of its well qualified faculties, the department has set up state of the art laboratories like Testing Lab(Material testing and Engine testing), Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulic Machine (FMHM) Lab, Heat Transfer & Refrigeration and Air Conditioning (HT & RAC) Lab, Advanced (Tribology) Lab, Non-destructive Testing(NDT) lab, Metrology Lab and a Computational Lab with 72 computers. The Department has also got a library of its own (donated by faculties) for its students for reading and reference beyond working hours. The Mechanical Engineering Society (MES) constituting of student members and faculty advisers, prepare the calendar for and run the various extracurricular activities for all round development of the students.
