Mechanical Engineering

 

The Mechanical Engineering Department was established in the year 2005. The school of Mechanical Engineering offers both a broad mechanical engineering degree that has emphasis on fluid mechanics, mechatronics, hydraulics, automotive engineering and medical engineering. Engineers qualified in all these areas play a key role in the design and manufacture of items that impact on modern living and our everyday lives, whether it comprises of household goods, healthcare products, sports equipment, reliable cars, aircraft or other transport system.

The department has a very efficient advisory system which always keeps very close teacher-student relationship. The faculty of the department is well qualified and dedicated to the improvement of academic standards and is keen on the overall development of the students. The faculty has been trained in various National and International workshops, seminars and training programs to cope with rapidly changing teaching methodologies and to impart efficient knowledge to the students. The laboratories and the workshop in the department and the supporting departments give ample opportunities to the students of Mechanical Engineering for gaining practical knowledge and hands on experience. Industrial visits and Educational tours are made an integral part of the curriculum to familiarize the student with the industrial environments and working conditions.

Educational objective of the department

To produce graduates who can be employed as practicing engineers in fields such as, design, research development, testing and manufacturing.

M.Tech in INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING

M.Tech in Industrial Engineering was started in the Academic Year 2014 and is going on in full swing. Students after post graduation get a thorough knowledge on industries, industrial relations.The program aims to provide an education that is directly applicable to a career in industry and is suitable for churning out experienced professionals .The program is designed to educate a new type of engineering workforce which is currently in high demand.

Facilities

Mechanical Engineering (ME), is always titled as “The Mother of All Engineering Disciplines”, it links all engineering disciplines together and provides a base for all technical education. Mechanical graduates can find career in almost every sector, right from agriculture to aerospace, manufacturing to medical field, automobile to atmosphere, robotics to renewable energy and innovation to incubation and many more.

BASIC MECHANICAL ENGINEERING WORKSHOP

       Mechanical engineering workshop is provides practices of engineering works like fitting, carpentry, foundry, forging, welding, sheet metal work.This workshop is intended to make the students aware of the basic mechanical engineering operations and familiar with different tools used for various mechanical engineering operations.It also provides the in house experience of basic mechanical instruments and activities.

THERMAL ENGINEERING LAB

                 This lab is provides petrol and diesel engine test rigs with different types of loading systems viz rope dynamometer, electrical and hydraulic types. These are with two stroke, four stroke, single and multi-cylinder engines and also variable compression ratio engines. This lab also facilitates determination flash and fire point, viscosity and calorific values of various lubricants and fuels.

FLUID & HYDRAULICS LAB

            Different types of flows through channels and pipes are in the experiment setup with periodically calibrated gauges. Turbines and variety of pump test rigs and cut models are used for experiment purposes. The students are given an opportunity to understand the various principles in Fluid Mechanics and their practical applications through a well equipped laboratory. Students are given hands on training on these machines.

MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY LAB

           This lab offers different types of machineries and gauges. This is equipped with centre lathes, shaping machines, slotting machines, milling machines, radial drilling machine, tool and cutter grinding machine. CNC turning machine and vertical milling machine machine  used for regular practice and for value added programs.

CAD/CAM LAB

Drawing, modelling and analysis class is conducted in CAD lab equipped with sufficient number of systems with softwares like AutoCAD, Thinkdesign, Solidworks,Ansys,Tora,Spss and Minitab. For the additional training purpose of students, the institution has signed MoU with CAD Centre attingal.

METROLOGY AND METALLURGY LAB

This lab is intended for the precision measurement and analysis of micro level parameters of mechanical systems. Various linear, angular and spherical parameters are measured using different equipments.

 

MECHANICAL ENGINEERING LAB

               Measurement of vibration in different condition, journal bearing pressure measurement, governors, gyroscope, whirling of shaft etc. are provided in the lab. Measurement of sound, air flow, water flow, temperature variation, humidity in atmosphere, calibration of tachometer, measurement of strain, measurement of pH, measurement of torsion of pendulum are also practised here. Equipments to conduct experiments related with emissivity, conduction and convection through various means and heat exchanger also available in this lab.
