Department Of Mechanical Engineering

All About

About Department

Mechanical engineering is evergreen branch, which has multi-dimentional opportunities. It is the branch of engineering concerned with the design, manufacture, installation, and operation of engines and machines and with manufacturing processes. It is particularly concerned with forces and motion. History of Mechanical Engineering dates to ancient Greece, where mechanisms like screw pumps, steam engines, clocks, seismometers, and even differential gears were invented. Chain drives, escarpments, crankshafts, and camshafts date to the middle ages.
Mechanical Engineers have opportunities in various fields which itself shows the all-pervasive branch of engineering. Students of mechanical engineering can aspire to locate themselves in various organisations dealing with Automobile, Design, Manufacturing, Aviation, Defence, Power sector, Oil and Gas, Aviation, Railways, Space, Shipping, Metallurgy, Pharmaceuticals, Mining etc. The students are driven to train in various fields of Mechanical engineering like CAD, CAM, Robotics, Welding, NDT and many other platforms which help them to excel in these fields thus enabling employment opportunities.
The faculty are trained to make the students reach their goals. They incline themselves to constantly upgrade their know- how in the field of engineering. The faculty and students have the habit of regularly publishing papers in journals and present then in conferences. Always the students are upgraded with current technologies through innovative projects. Mr. G. Surya Chandra Swamy.
