Applied Mechanics Department

The Department of Applied Mechanics is an important PG department in the institute. It not only runs PG programme in Structural Engineering with 18 intake capacity every year, but also caters to the needs of various UG programmes in the institute by teaching Engineering Mechanics, Strength of Materials, etc. The department has highest number of faculty members possessing PhD qualifications, who are quite interested in pursuing research work in structural engineering. The average teaching experience of these faculty members is more than 20 years. The department has faculty members Dr. P. B. Murnal, Dr S S Jamkar, Dr M G Shaikh, Dr M B Varma owning patents in the field of earthquake/structural engineering. Faculty members in the department have been performing at institute level shouldering responsibilities too; Dr P B Murnal, who is in-charge Principal also, is Head of the Department, and Rector as well. Dr S S Jamkar is currently Dean (R & D), while Dr M G Shaikh is Dean (Students Activities) at institute level. Dr S N Deshmukh is taking care of maintenance of buildings and other infrastructure in the institute.

The department has well equipped four labs namely Applied Mechanics Lab, Strength of Materials Lab, Concrete Technology Lab, and Computer Lab.Dr S S Jamkar is Lab-in-Charge for Concrete Technology Lab. Dr R S Londhe is working as Departmental Controller of Examinations. Dr S A Bhalchandra is Lab-in-Charge for Computer Lab & Strength of Materials Lab in the Department. Dr S N Deshmukh is Lab-in-Charge for Applied Mechanics Lab.

This department has a consistent reputation for years together in internal revenue generation through material testing and consultancy. The department is a research center under Dr B A M University for PhD programme in structural engineering; and a few students have obtained their PhD degrees, too.

In past, Dr M G Shaikh and Dr S S Jamkar have worked as Controller of Examinations from September 2007 to September 2010, and November 2013 to October 2016 respectively. The former HOD of the department Dr. Y. M. Ghugal was instrumental in the construction work of classroom complex built recently in the campus. The department had hosted an international conference on Innovative World of Structural Engineering in December 2010; Dr Y M Ghugal was Chairman of the conference while Dr R S Londhe worked as organizing secretary of the same.
