WHAT IS TOOL ENGINEERING ?

Tool Engineering is a division of Industrial Engineering. Its function is to plan the process of manufacture, develop various tools and machines and integrate facilities required for producing particular products with minimal expenditure of time, labour and material. Coursework is designed to include the art of designing jigs, fixtures, press tools, creating die casting designs, plastic moulds designs, mastering advanced plastic processing technologies and becoming perfect in metrology and measurements. B.E./B.Tech in Tool Engineering is a 4-year programme. Tool engineering is based on the use and application of various industrial tools within a manufacturing set-up. Students specialising in this branch of engineering pay attention to the structure and stiffness of the various industrial tools and machines used for creating certain products. One can pursue M.E./M.Tech in Tool Engineering after successful completion of BE/B.Tech.
