Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest branches of engineering. It is often referred to as the “mother” branch of engineering. Another appealing feature of mechanical engineering is that the application base of the study is extremely broad and diverse. Almost all inventions during the ancient period and a vast majority of findings of modern era are direct contributions of one or the other applications of mechanics. It is the discipline of engineering that applies the principles of physics and material science for analysis, design, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems. Mechanical engineering overlaps with aerospace engineering, marine engineering, building services engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, petroleum engineering and chemical engineering in varying amounts.
The Mechanical Engineering Department of Sreepathy Institute of Management and Technology (SIMAT) was established in 2009. For the Initial two years, the department provided academic support to the four branches of students of CE, CSE, ECE and EEE. In 2011, the first batch of ME branch was started. The Department has well qualified and experienced teaching and nonteaching staff engaged in teaching and development of practical and managerial skills of the students. They also contribute effectively in maintaining discipline and nurturing the personality of the students. The following facilities have been upgraded for the requirements of all the students: Mechanical workshop, Mechanical laboratories comprising fluidics, hydraulics, heat transfer, heat engines,production,instrumentation & CAD/CAM. A separate Mechanical Engineering Facilities Block is under construction to house all the various requirements of the ME students. In 2014 we have started one more batch for B-Tech Mechanical Engineering. CNC Turning Centre was inaugurated on 28th October 2014. We have an ambitious plan to develop the department,in a few years, into a research hub comprising of multiple projects leading to reputed publications.
Traditionally mechanical engineers have to deal with the concepts such as mechanics, thermodynamics, robotics, kinematics, structural analysis, fluid mechanics and many others. These concepts are applied in the process of designing state-of-art manufacturing units, different types of motor vehicles, aircraft and aerospace parts and a vast assortment of industrial machinery. Mechanical engineers also contribute in the development of various engines, power plant equipments and heating and cooling systems. Mechanical engineers not only design and manufacture new mechanical systems but also are responsible for testing and maintaining them. In addition to the above traditional tasks, nowadays mechanical engineers are focusing their attention to the new areas of research such as nanotechnology, development of high temperature composite materials, biomedical applications, environmental conservation etc. Mechanical engineering offers a wide bouquet of job options to students looking for a stable and stimulating career.
