MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

 

Mechanical Engineering is surely the broadest of engineering disciplines. Wherever advanced materials can serve mankind in innovative machines, or innovative devices and processes are needed, the creativity and professional skills of mechanical engineers will be in demand.

            The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Sri Ramanujar Engineering College was established in the year 2002-2003 traversed the path of knowledge dissemination and generation as well as delivering over 1000 Mechanical Engineering graduates to the Nation. Over these eight years, it has carved niche for itself in the key areas of teaching, research, consultancy, administration and community services.

            The Department of Mechanical Engineering prioritizes the necessary revamping of Mechanical Engineering education, which is driven primarily by dynamics of technological advances and sustainable development and with active involvement of industry, alumini, research organizations and other stakeholders. The department offers undergraduate and post graduate programmes and caters to 500 B.E students and 30 M.E. students.

            The Department's research efforts are having significant impact on our society as well as on the scientific community. We are strong in the fundamental disciplines of mechanical engineering and in various thematic areas: automotive engineering; design and manufacturing; dynamics, systems and controls; energy and environment; fluids; mechanics and materials; mechatronics and thermal sciences. We have strategically built critical mass and integrated the new emerging fields with core mechanical engineering.

            To be a mechanical engineer is to bring an in-depth understanding of scientific principles to the service of vision and imagination. The range of careers in which mechanical engineers are found is as broad as this suggests.

 

VISION

        The vision of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Sri Ramanujar Engineering College is:

        To become and be recognized by our peers and industry as one of the top-tier undergraduate and graduate Mechanical Engineering programs in the Country.

Industrial Visits

        Plant visits by students and faculty are a regular feature of the department as these visits or tours expose the students and faculty to actual industrial settings.

Seminars, Lectures, and Exhibits

        The students of Mechanical Engineering department regularly organize various technical & extracurricular events and bring out magazine annually under mechanical engineering students association called MISILE.

         Symposia and lectures dealing with different fields of engineering have been conducted in campus with active participation from the industry. This is another way of keeping the faculty and students in the department attuned to the changing nature of the world of work. Conversely, faculty members have disseminated to the public various engineering and engineering-related researches and development from the academe's point of view.

         Exhibits displayed by industrial companies have become an attraction during the Engineering Week and during the special celebrations of the engineering students organizations. These exhibits highlight the joint research projects of undergraduate/graduate students and faculty.

 

NITRO RACING 

         A national level RC Nitro Racing held at the college premises which enhance the racing experience throughout the nation. Every year the event hosts the most dynamic, budding engineers from all over the country under one banner. Nitro racing focuses on bringing the best out of all of the participants and in honouring them with attractive prizes, building their self belief. It also provides a chance to interact with the most eminent experts of various industries of our domain, so that our fraternity gains on-site exposure
