Among many engineering disciplines, Mechanical Engineering is the broadest engineering fields with ample application fields. Mechanical Engineering encompasses enormous range of technical areas such as- Refrigeration& Air-conditioning, Control& monitoring mechanisms, Computer-aided Design, Energy Management, Fluid mechanics, Tribology, Robotics, Biomechanics, Turbo-machinery, materials and Nanotechnology, Mechatronics etc. In ever changing scenario of present day technology, Mechanical Engineering is a challenging, rewarding, and highly respected profession.
The department of Mechanical Engineering was established in the year 2009 with an initial intake of 60 students and with a consequent rise in intake to 120 and 180 respectively in the years 2011 and 2013. The department is also offering M.Tech programs in Thermal engineering and CAD/CAM with an annual intake of 18 students.
The B.Tech (Mechanical Engineering) Program has been accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) since 2016 for 3 years. The Department of Mechanical Engineering has 32 well experienced and qualified faculty members supported by 4 technical staff. Department could prove the consultancy abilities through design and fabrication works of sports and structural equipment in recent past to badminton academy, Hyderabad.
The department is headed by Prof. M.Venkateswar Reddy having vast industrial and teaching experience. The department currently has 4 professors having research/ academic/ consultancy/ industrial experience. Faculty research experience covers a wide range of core and extended fields like Alternate fuels and IC engines, Composites and Biomedical applications, Manufacturing & Welding Technology, Robotics and CAD/CAM.
Mechanical Engineering Department has a state- of- art Centres of Excellence in Product Life Cycle Management (PLM) by TATA Technologies, Digital Manufacturing, Advanced Composite Materials, and Computational Engineering by Dassault Systems.
The department has well equipped laboratories with research facilities viz., ACE Minomatic, 6-Station Vertical Machining Centre, a CNC turning centre and 3D printing technology with supporting CAD/CAM laboratory and latest softwares for modeling and analysis such as ANSYS, CATIA, AUTOCAD, CADDEM, STABULI, MATLAB and ADAMS in which the students are encouraged to do in-house research projects. Mechanical Engineering deals with the formulation, design, development and control systems and components involving solid mechanics, dynamics and controls, fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer, manufacturing and conversion of energy into useful work. Industries that use mechanical engineers involved in Robotics, Computer Aided Design/Manufacturing (CAD/CAM), Automotive/Transportation, Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration.
