About Central Workshop
Central Workshop is the one of the oldest and largest division of Mechanical Engineering established in the year 1894. It has the machineries and facilities to cater the needs of undergraduate and post graduate students as well as for Ph. D. scholars to carryout research in the field of Manufacturing and Materials Science and Engineering. It provides infrastructure facilities for conducting laboratory courses in interdisciplinary areas, carrying out undergraduate project works and consultancy works. Over the years, Central Workshop facilities have been used by research scholars from the University Departments, Affiliated Colleges and Industries extensively.
