Department of Mechanical Engineering
The Department was started in the academic year 2011 with an intake of 60. Subsequently the intake was increased to 120 in 2013 and then to 240 in 2014.
The Department is organized in terms of three groups for academic purpose which is:
- Mechanical Design Group
- Thermal Engineering Group
- Production & Manufacturing Engineering
The Department has 55 faculty members, a blend of experienced faculty from various reputed academic institutions like Osmania University and young post graduates from IIT’s, NIT’s, Central Universities, BITS, OU, AU, and JNTUH who are guiding the Department in right perspective.
Within a short span of time, the Department has been equipped with state and central laboratories with total outlay of 3-5 cores. Notably we have CAD/CAM Lab with production machines like CNC Turning Centre and CNC Milling Centre and advanced software like Ansys CFD. The department has a Machine Tools lab with different types of high precision Lathes, Radial Drilling Machines, Box and Column type Drilling Machines. The department has Enterprise Development Cell (EDC) for training interested students in becoming Entrepreneurs.
The Department also houses a facility for Mini-Projects.
The Department is very well equipped with computational facilities and resources both in terms of hardware and software. There are more than 60 computers running a wide range of software products covering all areas of Mechanical Engineering as given below:
- PTC Creo
- Ansys Structural and CFD
- AutoCAD Mechanical
- AutoDesk Inventor
The Department has a student association, “MEKNOVATES”, which organizes various competitions like Technical Quiz, Design Contest, Technical Paper presentations. Students also participate in various competitions organized by SAE and GOKART.
The Department regularly conducts Guest Lectures by industry experts and organizes industry visits for providing industry exposure to students.
