+91-9776831637 head_prod@vssut.ac.in

Qualification : B.E in Production Engineering (Jadavpur University), M.E in Mechanical Engineering (Bengal Engineering College (D. U), presently IIEST, Shibpur, Ph.D in Mechanical Engineering (IIT Kharagpur)
Specialization : Production Engineering

Manufacturing or Production, in its broadest sense, is the process of converting raw materials into useful products. It encompasses the design and manufacturing of goods, using various production methods and techniques. Manufacturing is the backbone of any industrialized nation and its level of manufacturing activity is directly related to the economic health. Advanced Production Technology with computer controlled processes is the present day need by the manufacturing industries.

Scope of Production Engineering

Production Engineering has emerged as an independent discipline catering to the global need. Thus, the department was started in the year 1996 with an annual intake of 30 with the following objectives and core values.

  • Promote academic excellence.
  • Raise the level of knowledge, competence and skills in the area of manufacturing engineering.
  • Implementation of new curriculum and innovative instructional methods, such as self-paced learning, problem-solving projects, training in industry.
  • Establish and expand research capabilities for students and faculty.
  • Consulting projects that will serve industry and the community.
  • Exposure and experience with advanced manufacturing technologies such as Robotics, FMS, CIM, Non-conventional machining etc..

Core production engineering subjects, topics on advanced production technologies, IT related subjects and topics on managerial skills are carefully designed and put in the course structure to produce industry ready professionals. The job opportunities lie both in core manufacturing sectors and IT sectors. Due to high rate of globalization and industrialization, the scope of employment for manufacturing professionals is vast and is ever increasing.


To emerge as an internationally acclaimed hub in creating engineers and researchers with skill sets matching the requirement of industries.

  • To design curricula towards addressing contemporary needs in industries and academia.
  • To expand scope of laboratories bringing in continuous improvement through equipment and engineering tools
  • To promote independent learning among students
  • To develop collaborations with industries and academia within and outside the country towards promoting exchange in students, faculty and technical know-how
  • To encourage students and faculty members for active participation and involvement in innovative research and consultancy.
  • To inculcate team spirit among students from diverse groups.
  • To encourage students and faculty to engage in imparting appropriate skill to the socially and economically backward persons.
