Department of Mechanical Engineering

About

Mechanical engineering is a very popular branch among all other branches of engineering. Mechanical engineers are hired by industries to design, test, manufacture, install, operate and maintain a wide variety of machines and mechanical systems that are used in industries like the following:

Aerospace industry- In aerospace industry mechanical engineers are employed for research, design, manufacture, operation and maintenance.

Automotive industry- In automotive industry mechanical engineers are employed in design, manufacturing, testing, service, etc.

Chemical industry- It covers oil companies, process industries such as newsprint manufacturing, cement manufacturing, etc.

Construction industry- It covers building services like fire safety, heating, ventilation, etc.

Defence, Electronics industry, Marine industry, Material and metal industry, Transport industry, Utilities industry, etc. also employ mechanical engineering graduates.

Academics

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 curriculum is updated 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.
