About the Department

Department of Mechanical Engineering offers a unique 4-year under graduate programme leading to a degree in Mechanical Engineering and 2 year Post Graduate programme leading to a M.E degree in Manufacturing Engineering. The department has well qualified and energetic team of faculties to train and mould the students. There are Non-teaching staff members to assist them. Apart from the theory classes to train the students practically trained on various laboratories during their course tenure.

Students are encouraged to participate in the co-curricular activities like paper presentations attending seminars and workshops etc. Staff meetings were conducted by the HOD for staff members periodically to staffs for discussing and inform the various issues so as to maintain coordination.

Class committee meeting was conducted for the students after the cycle tests and the student’s grievances were rectified. Separate question bank was prepared for every subject by the faculty members and it was given to all the students in the form of booklet for both odd and even semesters for welfare of the students to improve the results.

The students of pre final, final year UG & PG are presented paper in National and international conferences, various project exhibitions. On the whole department supports and guides the students in every aspect to build strong knowledge in the technical areas of mechanical engineering to face the future with confidence.
