Production Engineering Department was started in 2002 with an intake capacity of 30 students. Intake capacity was increased from 30 to 60 with effect from July 2009. The degree course in Production Engineering-Sandwich is different from regular Production Engineering course. 

One of the important features of production-Sandwich lies in the fact that it includes one-year Industrial training as a part of academics. This gives an opportunity for students to learn practical working procedures as well as latest technical skills. 

During this training period, students can apply their theoretical knowledge and acquire skills to enhance their performance in the engineering field. The department is having close interaction with industries that helps in getting sponsored projects and potentially exists for quality improvement of the course. Regular interaction of all faculties helps students to clarify doubts as well as motivate students in exploring latest trends in the Industry. 

This training helps to convert students ready to work in Industries. Most of our students are directly absorbed where they have worked for training during Sandwich course.
