The department of Mechanical Engineering was established in 2002. It is equipped with state-of-the-art workshops, laboratories and computing facilities. The department has highly qualified and experienced faculty members. Approved by AICTE- New Delhi and Accredited by NAAC, Affiliated to the University of A P J Abdul Kalam Technological University, Kerala. The faculty members actively engage in research and constantly publish papers in International and National Journals. Guest lectures and industrial visits are periodically arranged for the students to enhance their curriculum. It strives for all round excellence in students, encouraging them in all extra-curricular activities. In alignment with the vision of NCERC, the department also fosters creative thought process and provides opportunities to our students to think out of box in order to mould world class professionals, capable of contributing to the welfare of the society.
Professor & Head Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines.
Mechanical engineering is a professional programme which helps students to understand the working mechanisms of heavy tools and machineries. Further it involves in the design, production, and operation of machinery.
This discipline is the application of engineering physics, engineering mathematics, and material science. Which principles to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems.
The mechanical engineering field requires an understanding of core areas including mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics, material science, structural analysis, and electricity.
In addition to these core principles, mechanical engineers use tools such as Computer-Aided Design (CAD), Computer-aided Manufacturing (CAM), and product lifecycle management to design and analyse manufacturing plants, industrial equipment’s and machineries heating and cooling systems.
Today mechanical engineers are pursuing developments in such areas like composites, mechatronics, and nanotechnology.
It also overlaps with aerospace engineering, metallurgical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, manufacturing engineering, chemical engineering, industrial engineering, and other engineering disciplines to varying amounts.
Mechanical engineers may also work in the field of biomedical engineering, specifically with biomechanics, transportation& routing, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices, weapons, bio-mechatronics,bio nanotechnology, modelling of biological systems and rapid prototyping.
Nehru College of Engineering and Research centre is having a facility to train students in CNC Machines, CAD and CAM with latest Design, analysis and modelling software. Our instrumentation lab is equipped with modern measuring instruments.
In nutshell mechanical engineering is a versatile branch of engineering which offers different job opportunities both in government and private sectors.
Producing internationally competitive Mechanical Engineers with social responsibilities and sustainable employability through viable strategies as well as competent exposure oriented quality education.
Engineering Graduates will be able to:
