- B.Tech Mechanical Engineering
About the Course
Mechanical Engineering is one of the pioneering departments in the University. It has its beginning along with the University in 1985.
It has been rated as No.1 department among all the engineering colleges in Tamil Nadu according to the survey conducted by "The Week" Magazine. It is approved as a "Research Centre for Collaborative Research with Anna University" for the award of PhD/M.S (by research) in year 2007. The department offers three PG Programs viz, M.E. (Computer Aided Design) started in the year 1997, M.E. (Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning) started in the year 2003 and M.E.(Thermal Engineering) in the year 2007. Research facilities are available in the areas of Mechanical Engineering Design, Dynamics and Vibration analysis, Mechatronics, Finite Element Analysis, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Internal Combustion Engines, Thermal Engineering, Refrigeration and Air-conditioning Engineering. The course assists our engineering students in developing competence and confidence in creative application of design process.
