Established in 1966, the Department of Applied Mechanics offers two post graduate programs. The department offers structural engineering subjects to B.Tech. (Civil) and B.Arch, Student along with the subject of Engineering Mechanics to the first year B. Tech. students. Since its inception, department has been actively involved in the consultancy work of structural design of structures, with emphasis on water tanks. In last decade, department has pursued many earthquake engineering related activities. Faculty members have visited earthquake affected areas after Bhuj earthquake of 2001 and Andman earthquake of 2004. At present, government funded research projects in the areas of seismic response control and damage detection are being pursued. Recently, department has procured servo-hydraulic shake table of 3m x 3m for seismic ground motion simulation.
