Mechanical Engineering (Tool & Die)
We have conducted a Technical Certificate Programme on "CATIA" for upgrading the Employability skills of our final year students for a duration of 70 hours. The course details of CATIA program is enclosed herewith.  
About the Department

Department of Tool & Die Making was established in 1996 to offer 3 ½ years Sandwich Diploma course in Mechanical Engineering (Tool & Die) under World Bank Assistance. This course develops technicians in the specialized area of Tool and Die Making to meet industrial demand. With added experience there is lot of scope for these Diploma holders to become Entrepreneurs or to get overseas employment. The approved strength of this course is 30.

Being a Sandwich Diploma course, students undergo two spells of industrial training each 6 months during their 4th and 7th semester.

Courses offered by the Department are

  • Mechanical Engineering (Tool & Die) (Sandwich)
  • Mechanical Engineering (Tool & Die) (Part Time)


To be a Quality & Benchmarking Department by Imparting Competent Education and Training in the area of Tool & Die Making through Innovation, Team work & Continuous Improvement.


  • To Develop and offer competency based quality education and Training services in Tool& Die making Engineering.
  • To cater the needs of Industries& Society through diversified subjects in a learner Centered approach with entrepreneurial Qualities.
