Introduction Faculty Laboratory Library Achievements Events Placement Research

 

        The Department of Mechanical Engineering has started functioning from the year of 2008, offering B.E. degree programme in Mechanical Engineering and M.E CAD/CAM. Initially, the annual intake in U.G was 60. The intake level was enhanced to 120 in the year 2011–12 and to 180 in the year 2013-14.The Post Graduate Programme was established in the year 2013-14 in CAD/CAM with the annual intake of 18.

        The department has highly qualified and well experienced faculties specialized in areas like Manufacturing Engineering, Engineering Design, Thermal Engineering, CAD/CAM, Refrigeration and Air conditioning and Energy Engineering. The Department is well equipped with excellent laboratory facilities with adequate technical supporting staff. The Department consists of erudite faculty members, who are constantly engaged in undertaking research work of original nature and subsequent publications. Many of the members of the faculty have earned to their credit quite a number of research papers published in the national and international journals of repute.

Programmes run by the department are,
        • B.E.-Mechanical Engineering
        • M.E.- CAD/CAM


Department of Mechanical Engineering is recognized as Research centre by Anna University, Chennai.
