Zeal to learn the subject


Theory of Machines is a fundamental course for production and manufacturing engineers to understand the working principals of any machine. This course is essential to understand the motion transmission between various machine components.

Course Outcome
  1. Students will understand the fundamentals related to kinematics of mechanisms and machines.
  2. Students will be able to synthesize and analyze the mechanisms.
  3. Students will be able to determine the size and shape of the cam for required motion.
  4. Students will able to understand the fundamentals of machine components like belt, gear, brake, and clutch.

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.
