Department of Mechanical Engineering
The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in the year 2004 with an annual intake of 60 students. The intake was increased to 120 students in the year 2010. Prof. George Thomas is the Head of the Department, with 26 faculty members and 9 Lab staffs. The Department has a dedicated faculty of highly qualified and experienced members in all streams of Mechanical Engineering including 2 Professors, 1 Associate Professor and 23 Assistant Professors. Three faculties of the department are undergoing PhD programme. This department is rated as one of the outstanding departments under MG university. We have produced so many rank holders, recently Renjith K B secured First Rank in Mechanical engineering from MG university in the academic year 2011-2015.
To evolve into a center of excellence in mechanical engineering education, and to create Mechanical engineers having excellence and competence in addressing the needs in the disciplines and with a deep commitment to serve the society for bettering the standard of living To emerge as a centre for imparting state of the art research and education in Mechanical Engineering with the aim of providing feasible solutions to engineering problems. To provide modern infrastructural and laboratory facilities in the department. To create a very good ambience for teaching and learning process. To enhance the creative and analytical talents in the students and enable them to visualize, design, develop, and execute the real world engineering problems.
