Mechanical engineers are involved with the design, analysis, testing, manufacturing, control, operation, and maintenance of, any system that has a moving part. It deals with all aspects of the conversion of thermal energy into useful work and the machines that make this possible. If you are intrigued by how things work, fascinated by robots and automobile engines, then mechanical engineering may be the profession for you.
The department of Mechanical Engineering was established in the year 2004 with an initial intake of 60 students and further a section with 60 students is added in the year 2013. The department is also offering M.Tech program in CAD/CAM with an intake of 18 students since 2011.
The B.Tech (Mechanical Engineering) Program has been accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) since 2013.
The department has 20 eminent faculty assisted by 16 technical staff that fetched design consultancy and import substitution projects of worth Rs. 5 lakhs from Industry like MTE Industries Pvt Ltd, Medquip Industries, Sanathan Industries and Uniquest Consultants etc. The deparment has MOU (memorandum of understanding) with various industries like MTE Industries, SreeRama non ferrous Foundry, Automative Robotics, Medequip Industries, Sanathan Industries, and Hyderabad Dies-Moulds etc. The students are encouraged to take up mini projects, major projects in various Industries and arranged industrial tours in and around Hyderabad are arranged periodically.
The department is headed by Dr. K G K Murti having vast industrial and teaching experience of 40 years. The department currently has 6 professors having research/academic/ industrial experience. Faculty research experience covers a wide range of current problems which have immediate application to industry. Some of the research work includes projects related to Welding Technology, Robotics and CAD/CAM.
The faculty of the department published papers in over 48 International Journals, 8 National Journals, 20 International Conferences and 46 National Conferences so far. The department has organized a national conference on “Emerging Technologies in Material Science and Engineering” with IE (Institute of Engineers) INDIA in March 2014. One of the senior faculty has applied for patent in the domain of Automobile Engineering.
The department has well equipped laboratories with research facilities viz., a ACE Minomatic, Bangalore make a 6-Station Vertical Machining Centre, a CNC lathe, with excellent metrology equipments. The CAD/CAM laboratory has latest software’s for modeling and analysis like AUTOCAD, ANSYS, CATIA, FULENT, IRONCAD, CADDEM, MATLAB AND ADAMS etc.
The department houses 8 well equipped state of art laboratories and one center of excellence in which the students are encouraged to do in house research projects. Mechanical Engineering deals with the formulation, design, development and control systems and components involving solid mechanics, dynamics and controls, fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer, manufacturing and conversion of energy into useful work. Industries that use mechanical engineers are involved in robotics, computer aided design/manufacturing (CAD/CAM), automotive/transportation, air-conditioning and refrigeration and having center of excellence in CAD/CAM domain.
The senior faculty has been drawn from various Industries/Research/Academia for imparting quality education and skill development for students to make them industry ready. Some of the senior faculty are presently rendering services to University of Hyderabad, Engineering Staff Collage of India, JNTUH and other reputed Industries by delivering expert lectures on current research trends to MTE Industries, Cyient, Sri Venkateshwara Industries Limited (Gear manufacturing unit), DMRL, Hyderabad etc. Senior faculties are also guiding and reviewing M.Tech and Ph.D thesis of various leading universities. The young faculty is encouraged to pursue their higher studies and research.
Many eminent Researchers/Industrial Experts/Academia are invited for giving expert lectures in current Technologies/Research trends for the benefit of the students. The department conducts annual Technical Fest, Workshops/Technical seminars for the benefit of students to bring out their hidden Talents. The students are encouraged to participate in National/ International level competitions being conducted at premier institutes and professional bodies. The students are encouraged by the management of IARE by funding to their R & D projects.
The senior faculties of the department are members of Board of Studies - Aeronautical Engineering, at JNTUH and GRIET - Mechanical Engineering and book reviewers of leading publishers Tata Mc Graw Hill. Prof. V. V. S. Haranadh Prasad, head of the department is one of the experts by Govt. of Telangana to give the views for framing policies for higher technical education towards skills development of Engineering graduates passing out.
MESTA (Mechanical Engineering students Technical Association) is a student body for conducting carrier development and skill improvement programmes.
Students of the department have been placed in various companies like TATA Advanced Systems, Infosys Technologies Limited, Tech Mahindra, TATA Consultancy Services, Cyient (formerly InfoTech), Wipro, NTT Data, Satyam Ventures, Hyundai etc. A significant number of graduating engineers are pursuing their higher studies in various Universities abroad by securing higher qualifying grades in GRE/TOEFL/IELTS etc.
The most remarkable achievement by Alumni of this department was selection in civil services in IPS cadre and another student pursuing MBA at IIM Indore placed with dream package in Snap-Deal and some others at PTC/ANSYS Inc. (West Germany) etc.
M.Tech (CAD/CAM) is a two year full time post graduate program approved by the all India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) for the students who have B.E/B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering. The course is offered by department of Mechanical Engineering by highly qualified and experienced teaching faculty. Intake to this course is 18, selected by JNTUH through PGCET/GATE.
The Course offers core subjects like Advanced CAD, Advanced FEM, DFM, Precision Engineering, CFD, Numerical Methods, Advanced CAM, Industrial Robotics, DH&PS, FMS, Automation in Manufacturing etc
A dedicated project work is taken up by every student for the next two semesters. The project work is of high quality basing used in current industry practices. Project work is supported by leading MNC’s and defense laboratories doing state of art research and development.
