Zeal to learn the subject


Kinematics of Machines is a fundamental course of mechanisms and machines. It is intended to introduceessential elements of machines and their functionality and engenders skills for kinematics analysis of machine elements like linkages, cams, and gears, within the general machine design context.

Course Outcome
  1. Students will be able to identify functional characteristics various machine elements.
  2. Students will demonstrate the ability to synthesize and analyse mechanisms.
  3. Students will demonstrate ability to design and analyse cams.
  4. Students will demonstrate the ability analyse gear trains.

Active Learning

Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
