Applied Mechanics

About Department

The Applied Mechanics Department is established since establishment of this college in 1983 Jointly with Civil Engineering department. The institute has produced many eminent engineers who have contributed significantly to the work of civil engineering projects Nationwide and abroad too.

The department contributes to Mechanical, Production and Electrical engineering UG education to core- engineering subjects over and above Civil engineering subjects, related to structural analysis, Geotechnical engineering and Design of Civil Engineering Structures.

The department is enriched with a Computer Laboratory, Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering Laboratory, Concrete Technology Laboratory, Structural Analysis Laboratory, Mechanics of Solids Laboratory, Earthquake Engineering Laboratory and a departmental library. Learning is made simple through and augmented with experimentation and relevant site visits.

The department feels proud for the State of Art laboratories Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering Laboratory for Non-Convectional equipment’s, Earthquake Engineering Laboratory, Computer Laboratory equipped with design software and the department library – the knowledge centre especially focused to Earthquake Engineering and design of steel structures including the books and literature on the subjects being taught by the department.

The Department has made e – books, ASCE e – journals, NPTEL video and web courses available to the students through the institute Wi-Fi resources in entire campus including student’s hostels.

The department offers civil engineering materials testing and consultancy services in the field of geotechnical and structural engineering to the Public. Many renowned Government, private institutes and organizations have availed such services. Faculties of the department are involved in various committee of Gujarat Technological University (GTU) for enhancement / updation of syllabus and students profile.

The institutional membership of INSDAG (Institute for Steel Development Growth in India) and TIE (The Institute of Engineers, India) are availed for making its faculty members professionally updated and to maintain professional relationship with outside world; working in the relevant profession.
