Mechanical Engineering is a branch of Engineering education, that combines Engineering Physics and Mathematical principles with material science to Design, Analyze, and Manufacture and maintain the mechanical systems.
Department of Mechanical Engineering was started in the year 1998 offering an Undergraduate program (B.E) with the current intake of 120. Department was upgraded as Post graduate department with the commencement of M.E in Manufacturing Engineering in the year 2007 with the sanctioned intake of 18. Based on the academic and infrastructure quality of the department, Anna University has recognized the department as a research department in the year 2015. The department was accredited by NATIONAL BOARD OF ACCREDITATION (NBA), NEW DELHI in the year 2019, certifying the quality performance of the department.
The Department is constantly striving hard to impart quality engineering education focusing on creative thinking, designing, and product development, ability to overcome constraints and provide effective team work with professional ethics. These skills would certainly get the students a career in Automobile, Aerospace, and other industries such as Banking and finance, management sectors, and other private and public sectors.
Under B.E., Mechanical Engineering program, various aspects of Mechanical Engineering such as Thermal Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Design Engineering, Automobile Engineering and Industrial management are included.
A team of Commited and highly qualified teachers are constantly taking care of teaching and learning processes of the students. Our classrooms are equipped with ICT and LMS tools for upgrading student’s technical knowledge through remote access. The department is provided with several laboratories equipped with advanced instruments and machineries. Major Laboratories are: Engineering Practices Laboratory, Manufacturing Technology Laboratory, Thermal Engineering Laboratory, Metrology Laboratory, Mechatronics Laboratory, and Strength of Materials Laboratory, Fluid Mechanics Laboratory and CAD / CAM / ANSYS Laboratory and Communication Laboratory.
Most of the faculty members are Doctorate Degree holders and rest of them are pursuing PhD program. The Department is also offering PhD Program under the guidance of Anna University recognized research supervisors. The faculty members are publishing a number of research papers in referred journals. Further 5 patents are published in recognition of their innovation.
The students are encouraged to participate in several co-curricular activities such as seminars, workshops, industrial visits and to undertake student research projects. They are motivated to organize seminars, inviting participants from other institutions. Professors from institution of excellence and industrialist and technocrats are invited to deliver special lectures on the recent technological developments.
To expose the students in industrial environment, several Memorandums of Understanding are executed with industries. The MOU’s are facilitating the students for close industrial interaction, project work and placements. Field visit and Industrial visit are regularly arranged and the students are taken to industries. These activities would benefit the students in understanding the real work – space environment.
Several batches of students are passed out from the department. Many of them are occupying higher positions in core industries, IT field, Banking, State and central Government sectors, and many have established their own business and Industries. The constant interactions of Alumni with the department promote employment opportunities to the present students.
The department is focused to educate and train the students to become a well qualified Engineers who are Innovative Entrepreneur and successful in various field of Mechanical Engineering and catering the ever changing Industrial requirements and social needs. Every year various core companies are visiting the college for campus placement and many of the students are selected and placed through on campus as well as off campus recruitments.
