Think about what you did today. Did you switch on a light, turn on a tap, open a door, take an elevator or escalator, travel in a bus, train, plane, or car, or use a computer? A mechanical engineer influenced every one of these activities
The Department of Mechanical Engineering in SSET started in the year 2001. It currently offers a UG program with an intake of 120 students and a PG program with specialization in Production and Industrial Engineering with an intake of 18 students. The department promotes a learning environment conducive for research and scholarly activities.
A good academic and research ambiance is guaranteed for the students by well qualified and experienced faculty in various core fields like Thermal Engineering, Production Engineering, Automobile Engineering, Robotics, Mechatronics, Machine Design, Computer Aided Design etc.
The Department is equipped with state of the art facilities like 3D printer, 3D scanner and flexible manufacturing systems, CNC Lathe, CNC Milling Machine etc. It also has advanced licensed software packages like Creo, CATIA, SIMULIA, DELMIA, AUTO CAD etc.
The Department has an MoU with TVS Harita Tech Serve and is committed to provide various value addition programs in software packages used in engineering field. Upon successful completion of the training programs TVS Group absorbs the best lot of students
The students are encouraged to organise and participate in technical and non-technical events but also to develop green projects having societal relevance.
In order to facilitate the expression of creativity and talents in the subject-related endeavours, the department has its own association which serves as a forum for the students to interact with the real time industrial situations. The association also organises workshops and training sessions to enhance the productivity of the students and teachers. Teachers Initiative Programs' (TIPs) is one of the highlighted event of association whose objective is to promote expertise in cutting edge technology.
