General Workshop

General Workshop forms an integral part of the Institution as it is heavily involved in carrying out the practical oriented study of various manufacturing activities with the help of some sophisticated equipments and machineries and tools.

Basic Engineering workshop curriculum is framed in all engineering/technology diploma programmes so as to make all the students proficient in the use of hand tools, equipments and machineries in various workshop sections like Machine Shop, Welding, Carpentry, Fitting, Sheet metal, Smithy, Foundry etc. Also with the assistance of quality supporting staff, students are able to carry out the fabrication work for their project work as part of their course study.

Following are the Sections / Shops in the General Workshop
  • Machine Shop

    A well equipped machine shop is maintained with all types of machine tools, such as Centre Lathes which includes high precision Lathes, Milling Machine, Grinders, Shapers, Drilling Machines, Slotting Machine, and Planer with which to work many types of materials. Machine shop works with students, faculty, and staff in the Institution as providing concept development, project design etc. Students are taught how to use the equipment safely and then use the machines for class projects. In Machine shop the mechanical engineering students are given ample of opportunities to gain practical knowledge and experience.

  • Fitting Section

    In fitting shop various processes are performed on metals to give them desired shape and size and fit them with mating part. Both ferrous and non ferrous metals are dealt in this section.

  • Carpentry Section

    Carpentry is a skilled trade in which the primary work performed is the use of wood to construct items as large as buildings and as small as desk drawers. In carpentry shop students learn to do wood-work like to make wooden furniture, wooden articles etc.

  • Welding Section

    A well maintained and advanced Welding section is another attraction of the General Workshop. Welding Provides hands on introduction to the common welding processes used in industry. Course will include SMAW, Oxy-acetylene Gas welding, MIG, TIG as well as appropriate safety procedures. Also students are trained to carry out the fabrication work for their project work.

  • Sheet Metal Section

    Provides with the necessary skills and techniques to work in the sheet metal fabrication occupation, giving you instruction in the use of portable power tools, sheet metal working equipment, shearing machine, bending machine etc. Learn to create various sheet metal articles such as trays, cups, jars, ducts etc.

  • Smithy Section

    Here students are trained how to create objects from wrought iron or steel by forging the metal by using tools to hammer, bend, and cut. Smithy Shop has various forges (manual and power) for heating purpose, different forging tools such as hammers. A power hammer is also provided in Smithy Shop. The students are emphasized on the correct dimensions and proper shape of the work piece.

  • Foundry Section

    Here students are getting awareness about Moulding & Casting Processes as well as appropriate safety procedures. Green sand moulds are normally practiced here.
