FACILITIES

Facilities

The department is well facilitated with most useful amenities. It has its own department library, machine shop, smart seminar hall etc

MACHINE SHOP

This lab includes various machines like Lathes, Shapers, Milling Machines and Planing Machines etc.Machine tools are power driven machines used by the mechanical engineers for imparting the desired size and shape to a work piece with the desired accuracy by removing the excess metal in the form of chips. In the machine tool lab, the student performs different operations in the lathe such as taper turning, thread cutting, grooving etc., and also cuts different types of gears in the milling machine provided with indexing mechanism.

FLUID MECHANICS LAB

This laboratory gives the students practical knowledge on the fundamental principles of Fluid Mechanics and can verify the principles of fluid flow. They conduct study of various pipe fittings, valves, gauges, water meter, current meter and on stability of floating bodies, pipe flow and applications of Bernoulli’s Theorem etc. The different test rigs available in the lab includes, − Pipe friction apparatus − Orifice Meter apparatus − Rectangular & V-notch apparatus − Ventury meter apparatus − Reynolds apparatus − Rotameter apparatus − Orifice apparatus − Metacentric height apparatus

FLUID MACHINERY LAB

ACTIVITIES

Activities

MECHATHLON

The department of mechanical engineering conducts annual intercollegiate techno-management fest “MECHATHLON”, comprising of technical paper presentation, design contests, technical quiz & debate, informals, exhibitions, project stalls etc. MECHATHLON brings the best minds in the country challenging them to explore new possibilities in technology and management. This Technical fest aims to amalgamate the innovative ideas of young Engineers with experienced minds on the various latest technological trends. MECHATHLON gives an opportunity to the young technocrats to work as a team and forge their ideas into masterpieces. This year, MECHATHLON will be conducted on 3,4, &5th of October.

ASSOCIATION

Association

Association of Mechanical engineering Students is introduced to provide a platform for the students to exhibit & sharpen their academic & practical knowledge. Seminars, Working Model Exhibitions, workshops etc. conducted by the association do fulfill the above said purpose thereby achieving an integrated development of the students.

Staff-in-charge: Mr. Sreejith M. Asst. Professor, ME
