Mechanical Engineering department commenced offering UG programme (Mechanical Engineering) in 2008 with an initial intake of 60 students, which was enhanced to 120. Department achieved permanent affiliation status from Anna University since 2018. One fifth of the faculty members are Ph.D holders. The department has requisite number of faculty members, striving to incorporate excellence in theory, practice and research.
Mechanical engineering is the discipline that applies the principles of engineering, physics, and materials science for the design, analysis, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is the branch of engineering that involves the design, production, and operation of machinery. It is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers a curriculum that combines a foundation in mathematics and science and a core of engineering science and mechanics based courses with the creative processes of engineering design and supports student groups engaged in design-intensive and entrepreneurial extracurricular activities. The program integrates individual mastery of core subjects in fluid mechanics, thermal engineering, mechanical systems, and solid mechanics with teamwork-based solutions to open-ended design problems, real-world experiences, and experimental techniques. Students learn the skills to develop ideas from concept to product. The department has laboratory and workshop facilities with modern sophisticated equipment, which makes the students flourish well in accomplishing the future challenges.
The vision of the Department of mechanical engineering is to be a pioneer in this part of the country in providing the youth with global quality interactive technical education to cater to the needs of the industries that would in turn, benefit the society. The skills learnt will be sharpened further by incessant research activities in this college. This will arm them to change the course of the people to make this world a better place for our posterity to live in during the centuries to come.
Our mission is to become and remain forever, a much sought after college for engineering in this part of the country. We pledge to create a pleasant and disciplined educational environment that will enhance the all-round personality of young engineers. Department of mechanical engineering shall work in collaboration with the corporate sector, industries and high profile research laboratories to hone the skills of our young engineers.
We strive to create a happy and cheerful atmosphere for the staff and students so that it would enthuse our young student engineers to perform any task willingly and successfully. At department of mechanical engineering, we go all out to fulfill our commitment to the society b improving the conditions of the poor and the have-nots through innovative modes of research that would offer ultratech solutions.
