Mechanical Engineering

About the Department

The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in the academic year 2005-06 which enrolled 60 students. An additional intake of 60 (total 120 students) was sanctioned in the academic year 2013-14. The department is accredited by NBA from the July 2014 onwards, and is headed by Dr.P. Vijian who has vast experience in academics. The department has a group of 20 well qualified and experienced Professors and dynamic young staff who hold their master degrees in their are ao finterest from renowned institutions. Among them, three members of the faculty have obtained their Ph.D. The staff have published papers in their research domains and two faculty members are recognized as supervisors to guided doctoral candidates in Anna University.

The department has full-fledged and well established laboratory facilities and all the instruments used in every laboratory are being calibrated for usage. Internet facility has been enabled in many computers for the faculty to effectively search for useful study materials. Wi-Fi connection has been enabled for them to use their personal computers for research purposes. The department has well equipped smart class rooms with necessary teaching aids viz., multimedia computers with LCD projectors for each class rooms in order to enable power point presentations for specific/necessary lecture topics. With regard to the technical data, NPTEL videos, Online Class Rooms with EDUSAT Connectivity are available. The department has signed MoU with the leading organizations/industries in the city namely CODISSIA, KKM Soft, Roots Industries and SALZER Electronics. The Department is conducting a National conferences on Intelligent Automation in Manufacturing and Automotive Technologies once in two years.


Message from Head of Department

The objective of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their live - Robert Maynard Hutchins.

In line with the above, the department of Mechanical Engineering is working towards inculcating learning habits in students that will remain with them throughout their life. Mechanical Engineering is the backbone of any industry with amazing versatility. Today’s industrial environment is characterized by skilled manpower, use of advance technologies and its effective implementation in various sectors such as Design, Manufacturing, Automobile and Energy. Education that inculcates global awareness is the need of the hour. Globalization demands an education system which sensitizes individuals to global trainings and enables them to think beyond borders in terms of global opportunities.

In order to cater the need for skilled manpower in Manufacturing and Automation, Mechanical Engineering department conducts Value Added Programs in the fields of PLC Automation, CNC software and Machine Training with the support of leading institutions. Industrial & Field Visits form an integral part of engineering curriculum. Students regularly visit leading industries connected with manufacturing, energy sectors, Power Plants etc. Department of Mechanical Engineering is working towards imparting requisite skill sets in students to cater to the needs of modern industry revolution.
