The department of Mechanical Engineering was started in the year 1994 by the TAMIL NADU EDUCATIONAL AND MEDICAL TRUST, a Jain Minority Trust with the primary objective of providing higher education to the deserving Jain students. However, students were also admitted without regard to their caste, creed or religion, with their rights of conscience being respected.

The institution is affiliated to the Anna University Chennai, and all programmes are approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (A.I.C.T.E.), New Delhi. The under graduate programmes were accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (N.B.A.).

The department of Mechanical Engineering offers , one Undergraduate (U.G.) in B.E. Mechanical Engineering.

The department has qualified, experienced and dedicated faculty members with specializations in various fields of Mechanical Engineering both in academic and industrial backgrounds. The department has all the laboratories as per the recommendations of Anna University Chennai.

The department of mechanical engineering thrives hard in providing the state of the art technology for the students in both theory and practice.

Focus is mainly on academics and hence the department has produced an handful of University Rank holders. The department also focuses on co-curricular, and extra-curricular activities and hence arranges for industrial visits for students to expose them to the current Industrial Practices. Seminars, Guest Lectures, Workshops and Symposiums are conducted every semester by the department to update students with the latest upcoming technological developments. Motivational programmes and personality development programmes are also conducted to build in a strong leadership and active team member personality traits. Students' technical symposium conducted every academic year is deemed as a "technical festival" in the department of mechanical engineering.

The department is vibrant and keeps organizing various technical events and workshops around the year for the consistent development of Faculty and Students. Our students are encouraged to actively participate in professional society activities (SAE) in which real time all Terrain vehicles are fabricated through events like BAJA, EBAJA,SUPRA,E BIKES and GOKART.

The department monitors student's attendance and their test performance to improve their performance through counsellors such as class advisors and proctors who help students to keep them on academic tracks.

Training and placement programmes are conducted to increase job opportunities in the on-campus interviews conducted in the pre-final and final years. Many students get placed in the leading core companies/ industries during the final year of their programmes. The department also encourages students to persue higher studies both in India and abroad and also provides guidance to become young entrepreneurs to support and develop the nation.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers One program,

  • Undergraduate (UG) in B.E. Mechanical Engineering,

In addition to that the department also organizes and conducts value added short term courses on CAD/ CAM areas conducted by the faculty of the department and by resource persons form leading organizations to improve job seeking capacity for the students.
