Mechanical Department

Mechanical engineering is a diverse subject that derives its breadth from the need to design and manufacture everything from small individual parts and devices (e.g., microscale sensors and inkjet printer nozzles) to large systems (e.g., spacecraft and machine tools).The role of a mechanical engineer is to take a product from an idea to the marketplace. In order to accomplish this, a broad range of skills are needed.The mechanical engineer needs to understand the forces and the thermal environment that a product, its parts, or its subsystems will encounter; to design them for functionality, aesthetics, and the ability to withstand the forces and the thermal environment they will be subjected to; and to determine the best way to manufacture them and ensure they will operate without failure.

Degree Offered

The department of Mechanical Engineering, being one of the largest and oldest departments, caters to its students with class tutorial and state-of-the-art laboratories. The department is continuously striving to achieve excellence in education, academic and industry oriented research as well as consultancy work with service to the society.

We aim to provide our students with a perfect blend of intellectual and practical experiences that helps them to serve our society and address a variety of needs. At the end of our program, students are prepared for entry-level work as a mechanical engineer as well as for the post-graduate study in mechanical engineering, where a fundamental engineering background constitutes a desirable foundation. Academic course work and projects are designed to endow students with the ability to apply knowledge of science, mathematics, and engineering, and the capability to work effectively in multidisciplinary teams, providing leadership and technical expertise.

Since these skills are required for virtually everything that is made, mechanical engineering is perhaps the broadest and most diverse of engineering disciplines. Mechanical engineers play a central role in such industries as automotive; aerospace; biotechnology; computers and electronics; microelectromechanical systems (MEMS); energy conversion; environmental control; automation; manufacturing and microfabrication. To put it simply, mechanical engineering deals with anything that moves, including the human body, a very complex machine.

Our department faculty members are highly qualified with experience in academic and industries with diverse specializations in areas of Design, Manufacturing, Thermal, Materials Technology, Mechatronics and Energy Engineering.

The Association of Mechanical Engineering Department organizes workshops, seminars, symposia, conferences and guest lectures by inviting experts from industries and academic institutions for the benefit of the students. Also various training programmes are organized in the fundamental and frontier topics of all the subjects which are concept oriented for getting placed in reputed organizations. Students are taken for industrial tour/visit in order to gain more practical knowledge in the field of mechanical engineering. Inplant training in the industries related to mechanical engineering are given to the students which will be helpful in doing their project works.

The department has signed an MoU with MTAB Technology Centre Pvt. Ltd., Chennai in the areas of training in advanced technologies, conduct certified programmes for students and faculty development programmes for faculty members.
