The Manufacturing Processes and Automation Division was started during the session 1995-96. Giant strides in field of electronics and computer science have culminated in the evolution of computer integrated manufacturing systems. It was started with the aim of providing coherent, intensive training programmes in the areas of CAD/CAM, CNC, Analog and Digital Electronics, Management of Manufacturing Systems, Machine Tools, Automation, Robotics, Computer Graphics, Artificial Intelligence and Non-Conventional Machining.
A CAD/CAM/CAE Lab based on IDEAS software is being developed. Current areas of research are Welding, Non-Conventional Machining and Manufacturing Systems. The Programmes offered by this Division are B. E. and Ph.D. Proposal for M. Tech. in Production & Automation has been sent to AICTE for approval.
