Department of Mechanical Engineering


The Mechanical Engineering Department was started in the year 1984. This department offers BE in Mechanical Engineering and M.E. in Thermal Engineering. The department has well qualified and experienced faculty members both from Industries and Academics with specializations in Thermal, Manufacturing, CAD, Design, Welding, Production Engineering . The department has been producing constantly rank holders at the University level. There is a separate Department Library with large collection of volumes of books.

The department constantly maintains its best position with respect to pass percentage and student rank holders in Anna University Examination in this Zone. The department organizes National Level Conferences / Workshops / Seminars on various advanced topics. The staff members are constantly publishing research papers at the National / International journals. The students of Mechanical Engineering are participating in the other college paper presentation competitions and bring laurels to the department. The students are placed well in reputed companies every year through on - campus and off - campus drives.

The department is maintaining more than eight laboratories such as Engineering Practices Lab (with equipment for Welding, Foundary systems, grinders etc), Manufacturing Lab includes all types of Lathes, Milling machines, drilling machines, shaping machines, planner, Grinding machines etc,. CAD - CAM Lab with drafting software, modeling software, systems CNC machines, Dynamics Lab with cam Analyzer, Gyroscopes, whirling of shaft apparatus, balancing machines, Kinematic models, Vibration testing arrangement etc.,

Thermal Engineering Lab with Diesel engines, Petrol engines, Model steam power plant with steam boiler and turbine setup etc. Heat Transfer Lab with convection cylinder apparatus, Pin-fin, Stefan – Boltzmann apparatus, heat exchanger apparatus, Reciprocating air compressor, Refrigeration/ Air-conditioning test rig etc. Metrology and measurement Lab includes Vernier gauges, floating carriage Micro meter, Mechanical / Electrical / Pneumatic comparator, Autocollimator, Temperature / Displacement / Force / Torque / Vibration / Shock Measuring set ups etc., Mechatronics Lab with Pneumatic Trainer kit with controls, PLC, Hydraulic trainer kit, µ-controller with stepper motor control unit, Flow rate, direction, speed, velocity and force setups etc.,
