The Department of Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest and the largest department in terms of faculty, students and activities in engineering arena. In MPEC, the department has dedicated faculty members and adequate infrastructure to impart proper interaction. The results in the university examination have been excellent throughout. The department keeps updating labs in order to keep in pace with the recent trends.
The profession of Mechanical Engineering, second largest among engineering disciplines, involves the design, analysis, and manufacturing of machines. Central to the profession is the importance of innovation and creating new technologies and products. Mechanical engineers work in teams involved in designing jet engines; automobiles; aircrafts and spacecraft’s; microelectro mechanical acceleration and pressure sensors; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems; biomedical and biomechanical devices as artificial hip implants; and such integrated mechanical and electronic (mechatronic) systems as robots.Graduates in Mechanical Engineering will find employment opportunities in the diversified branches of the mechanical field. Mechanical engineers are employed in many types of manufacturing, fabrication, research and development, and service industries such as Railways, Aviation, Automobile Industry, Power plants, Manufacturing Industries e.g. Materials, refined metals etc.
Mechanical engineers are employed by small start-ups, multinational corporations, government agencies, national laboratories, consulting firms, and universities. They can work in areas of research, design, manufacturing, sales, quality assurance or management.
At the heart of Pratap University is the relevance and rigor of its research, teaching and learning materials.

The Faculty – one collaborative environment
We have a strong emphasis on pooling academic resources and expertise across our Institutions, creating richer undergraduate experiences, new training programs, and a host of new collaborative research opportunities.
As we all know, opposite charges attract, so when we put anode and cathode into the H20, the positive charged hydrogen are attracted by cathode and negative charged oxygen is attracted by anode. Hence, HH and O bonds break to form HHO. This HHO can be supplied directly into Internal Combustion engines for moving the engine shaft.
This process can produce mechanical energy. Furthermore, this mechanical energy can be converted into electrical energy by using D.C generator. 30% of power from generator is consumed by electrolysis process and remaining 70% is for our applications.
How it works?
We all know how nature filters our water. It evaporates dirty or sea water and later condenses it in the form of rain which is pure drinking water. Pedal powered water purifier works on the same concept. In this project we pedal our bicycle to transform water into vapor and later condense it to get clean water.
This project consists of two chambers,copper tube and pipe, one chamber is for dirty water called tank and second one is tiny boiler.Both of these chambers are connected using pipe. When we fill our tank with dirty water,as pressure of dirty water increases,water starts to transfer from tank to boiler using pipe connected to both of them. In boiler, water gets heated up to the boiling point using pedal powered generator.Water Vapor generated in this process passes through tank of dirty water using copper tube and later to outlet.Advantage of passing water through dirty water chamber is that,it preheats the dirty water and condense itself to provide us clean water.
We all have heard about Hydraulic lifts sometime in our life, but some of you may think that how it works or how to build one for ourselves. Here we are going to discuss about lifting cars using Hydraulics, which is based on Pascal concept
Why understanding Hydraulics important?
Hydraulics is a topic in applied science and engineering dealing with the mechanical properties of liquids. Fluid mechanics provides the theoretical foundation for hydraulics, which focuses on the engineering uses of fluid properties.
Pascal's law states that the pressure applied at one point of the liquid is transmitted equally in all direction. This principal is applied in hydraulic lift, for lifting heavy objects.
Force = Pressure x Area
Therefore Pressure = Force / Area
P1 = P2 (if pressures are equal throughout).
Formula becomes F1/A1 = F2/A2
Using above formula we can lift heavy materials using little force. For e.g. here we are lifting 10 pound using 1 pound.
1 pound / 1 square inches = 10 pounds / 10 square inches
So, to lift a car we should produce force(F1) which is more than F2(car force)
A1(Area below F1)
A2(Area below Car)
F1/A1 = F2/A2
F1 = F2 * A1/ A2
Therefore value of F1 is dependent on A1/A2 Ratio. Lesser it is lesser the force required by us.
