ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
One of the founding departments in SVS College of Engineering established from the inception of college in the year 2009, the Mechanical Engineering Department is playing a leading role in catering the needs of the students with tutorial class and state-of-the-art laboratories. The department is continuously striving hard to achieve excellence in education, academic and industry oriented research as well as consultancy work with mission to serve the society. It aims to provide the students with a perfect blend of intellectual and practical experiences, which will help them to render their service to the society in addressing a variety of needs.
After graduation our students are well prepared enough for starting their career as a mechanical engineer as well as for the post-graduation. They will have the ability to apply knowledge of science, mathematics, and engineering, and the capability to work effectively in multidisciplinary teams, providing leadership and technical expertise. Also our students are ready to engage in ethical approaches to engineering, with concern for society and the environment.
The Department aptly makes use of the technical facility available in the campus in teaching and in setting up of in-house experimental set-ups. Apart from carrying out practical classes as per academic curriculum, laboratory facilities in the department caters to the needs of different departments of the Institution in terms of executing works of related research/consultancy.
The Department is mainly backed by various laboratory facilities providing hands-on training in Engineering Practices Laboratory, Manufacturing Technology Laboratory, CAD / CAM Laboratory, Dynamics Laboratory, Thermal Engineering Laboratory, Heat Power Laboratory, Metrology and Measurements Laboratory and Mechatronics Laboratory. The department houses excellent experimental and computational facilities, including the recently established high performance computing facility with latest configuration softwares including ANSYS WORKBENCH, MATLAB, SOLID WORKS, EDGECAM, etc. Some of the major equipments are: Planning Machine, Tool Maker’s Microscope, Ultrasonic Flaw Detector, Thermocouple Calibration Test Rig, Profile Projector, Natural convection test rig, Forced convection rig, Pin-Fin test rig, CNC Training Centre (Semi Production), CNC Machining Center, etc
The Departmental faculty members are erudite teachers who are continuously engaged in undertaking research work of original nature and subsequent publications. Many of the members of the faculty have earned their credit by publishing quite a number of exemplary research papers in the national and international journals of repute.
The Department organizes Guest lectures, symposiums, workshops and conferences every year along with more number of Industrial visits. Further department has its own monthly newsletter “MACHINE NEWS”. It is germane to mention that the Mechanical Engineering Department has taken initiative in signing many MoUs with Indian Welding Society (IWS), New Delhi, CODISSIA, Coimbatore, Coimbatore Productivity Council, Coimbatore, Quality Circle Forum of India, Secunderabad, etc
