The curriculum and syllabi are designed and developed by the Anna University to meet the current challenges and opportunities as per the recommendations from Board of Studies, Anna University, Chennai. Currently Anna University Regulation 2017 (CHOICE BASED CREDIT SYSTEM) is followed and Regulation 2017 syllabus is taught to the students admitted to BE (Mechanical Engineering) programme from the academic year 2017-2018 onwards.
Our BE (Mechanical Engineering) graduates are expected to perform and achieve the following during the first few years after graduation
PROGRAMME EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES (PEOs)
PEO1: To acquire the fundamental and technical knowledge in the field of Mechanical Engineering and allied fields.
PEO2: To impart skill based training program to Design, Analyze and Create Innovative Solutions for Technical Challenges for the Emerging Industrial needs and Higher Studies.
PEO3: To inculcate them with professional and Ethical attitude, Effective communication and Managerial skills.
Our Mechanical Engineering Students are expected to know and would be able to do the folowing upon their graduation:
