Department of Mechanical Engineering

Department of Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest engineering disciplines. Mechanical Engineers use the principles of energy, materials, and mechanics to design and develop equipment/devices/processes/systems for all types of industries. This domain has got great scope for innovation through designing new products, developing new materials and manufacturing process to make the product cheaper at the same time increase in its operation life.

The college offers 4-year regular (full-time) B.E programme in Mechanical Engineering. Annual intake of students is 60. During the four-year study period, students are taught and practiced in the areas of manufacturing technology, theory of machines, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, materials science, thermal engineering and heat transfer, CAD/CAM, production planning, managerial concepts, etc. In addition, students can specialise in certain special areas such as robotics, cryogenics, fuel technology, automotive engineering, biomechanics, vibration, etc. by choosing appropriate elective courses under the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) followed under Anna University Regulations 2017.

The students are also provided with soft skill and technical skill trainings during every semester to make them industry ready engineers. Further, students are provided opportunity to undergo skill training in Mechanical Engineering Software such as AutoCAD, Solid WORKS, ANSYS, etc. Students interested in higher studies are supported with GATE coaching on regular basis.
