About the Department
The Mechanical Engineering Department offers educational programs designed to prepare students for professional career by developing a sound base in fundamental engineering sciences. The graduate program in Mechanical Engineering is intended to develop individual initiative, creativity, talent, leadership and the capability to develop, follow and adopt new technologies in the field of Mechanical Engineering.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering was started in 2011 with an intake of 60 students. The Department follows the syllabus as per the affiliating Anna University - Chennai and to supplement the syllabus, Guest lectures and Industrial visits are also organized by the Department. The student intake also increased to 120 students in 2012. The department extension increased activities through providing short term training and faculty development programs.
The Department library is equipped with books related to latest technologies; periodicals and CD’s containing simulated diagrams.
The vision of the mechanical engineering program is to provide and sustain a quality, state-of-the-art education in mechanical engineering that enables students to develop specialized knowledge and experience required to practice as professional mechanical engineers or to pursue a course of analytical study.
The Department is dedicated to educating the highest quality engineering professionals and leaders. Our graduates will be prepared to creatively solve engineering problems through the use of analysis, computation, and experimentation. The students completing our program should be well-informed citizens who have the ability to grow intellectually and are able to solve new, challenging problems with self-confidence. We maintain a general and flexible curriculum that prepares students for both industrial practice and graduate education.
