About Mechanical Engineering Department

The Department of Mechanical Engineering is the REFLEX of GPERI. The Department strengthens with well experienced faculty members and lab assistants involved in teaching and research. The department offers opportunities to its student to carry out education in following areas: Thermal and Fluids Engineering, Design, Manufacturing, Industrial Engineering etc. Apart from the classrooms the department has state-of-the-art laboratories with all high-end tools and equipments to facilitate practical experience.

Prof. Rajesh J. Patel

Mechanical Engineering is one of the broadest and oldest branches of engineering. It involved with the design, analysis, testing, manufacturing, control, operation, and maintenance of mechanical systems – wherever, the systems have a moving part. Mechanical systems can vary greatly in complexity and magnitude from the valve in an articial heart to a car engine to a mammoth nuclear power plant. The department’s endeavor has always been to enhance the industry-institute relations and concurrently gure out solution for critical technology avenues of Mechanical Engineering. The department has MoUs with many industries and organizes seminars / symposia for professional interaction. The Department contributes to the interdisciplinary academic and research activity of the institute.

Our goal has always been to train the budding Mechanical Engineers by various advanced tools and techniques of the profession. The faculty, through constant endeavor, updates the existing courses which help in imparting the latest technical knowledge to the students. We have membership of Indian Society for Technical Education and Indian Society of Heating Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineering. We are committed to provide research and testing facility in the renewable energy like solar energy. The department has solar research facility with 10 KWp captive solar power plant and 500 LPD solar water heater.

I wish the student of mechanical engineering to be GOAL specic. Better choose the specialization, than the company for your career development.

ISHRAE -GPERI Student Chapter

Department of Mechanical Engineering has established ISHRAE GPERI student chapter in October 2016.


Faculty Coordinator: Prof. Bhargav Pandya

The purpose of an ISHRAE student chapter is to get more students interested, concerned, and involved in pursuing a career in the field of heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration. ISHRAE student chapter activities are administered by students as elected officers which provide students with an experience that simulates running a business or an organization. As a student officer, you'll "set yourself apart from the pack" and increase your visibility to recruiters. By networking with your local ISHRAE Chapter, you will have an opportunity to meet practicing engineers in the HVAC industry. Student officers are counseled by the college Faculty Advisor but may also be mentored by members of their local ISHRAE CWC Student chair. Even if your career is ultimately in another industry, your involvement with the ISHRAE Student Chapter will be an invaluable transferable experience. You may also choose to get involved in one of the students activities such as ACREX Quiz, National Student Design Competition, Technical Paper Presentation etc, which will be one of the most memorable experiences of your life. In addition to having fun and meeting great friends, these competitions provide an exceptional engineering experience and allow you to apply your coursework in a real-world application.


Achievements of ISHRAE GPERI Student Chapter
  • 1. Mr. Sumit Bhatt is placed at Suvidha Engineers Pvt. Ltd.
  • 2. Mr. Aakarsh Modi , Mr. Ravi Patel and Mr. Pinak Patel have been sponsored by ISHRAE Ahmedabad Chapter to attend ACREX 2017 and 2018 at New Delhi and Banglore.
  • 3. Under the guidance of Prof. Bhargav and Prof. Vinay ISHRAE GPERI Student Chapter has acquired research grant of INR. 46500 on the project entitled as "An experimental study on defrost heaters applied to frost-free household refrigerators"
