The Mechanical Engineering

The Department of Mechanical Engineering is functioning since the inception of the college with an intake of 60 students. An additional batch of 60 students was started in the year 2010.

The department has the state of the art facilities for various laboratories and department library. Guest lectures and industrial visits are periodically arranged for the students to supplement their curriculum. The Department strive for all round excellence in students, encouraging them in all extra curricular activities. Research activities at the department are progressing in the areas of feature based design, optimization/analysis of mechanical systems, alternate fuels for IC engines, air pollution modeling, thermal energy storage, and materials technology.

The department has a team of highly qualified and experienced faculty . The department regularly organizes technical workshops and promotes faculties and students to attend workshops and conferences to expose them to emerging areas.

    • Department conducted Faculty Development Programme on Design of Experiments and Recent Developments in Optimization Techniques from 26th June 2019 to 28th June 2019. The sessions were handled by  Dr. Anil Lal, (Department of Mechanical Engineering, College of Engineering Trivandrum), Dr. Adarsh S, (Department of Civil Engineering, TKM College of Engineering, Kollam), Dr. K. Sunilkumar, (Department of Mechanical Engineering, College of Engineering, Adoor), Prof. Premchand V P, (Department of Mechanical Engineering, Mar Baselios College of Engineering & Technology, Trivandrum) and   Prof. Ajith Kuriakose Mani, (Department of Mechanical Engineering, Saintgits College of Engineering, Kottayam).

    • The department conducted a webinar on Role of Artificial intelligence in CFD on 16th August 2020. The session was handled by Dr. Reby Roy, Associate Professor, TKM College of Engineering, Kollam. The idea of bringing AI (Artificial Intelligence) to the world of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) was effectively conveyed through the webinar.

    • Department conducted National Conference on Emerging Technologies in Mechanical Engineering (NCET-2015) on 17th April 2015. The sessions were chaired by  Dr. Mohammed Sajid N K, Professor, TKM College of engineering, Kollam , Dr. K A Shafi, Associate Professor, TKM College of engineering, Kollam, Dr.Bijulal D, Professor, School of Management, College of Engineering, Trivandrum and Dr.Kurian Antony, Assistant Professor, Amal Jyothi College of  Engineering, Kanjirappally.

    • The department conducted National Workshop on Intelligent Manufacturing during 2012 and 2014 .The National Workshop on Intelligent Manufacturing” (NWIM) attracted active participation of  delegates from highly reputed universities.

    Computational Fluid Dynamics R&D Projects:

    “CFD analysis of merged airfoil for incompressible and compressible flows”, “Comparison of heat transfer between a helical and straight tube heat exchanger”, “CFD analysis of fluid flow and heat transfer in a conical spiral tube heat exchanger” was undertaken in the department and was guided by Prof. Bibin Prasad.  All these works has been published  in the International Journal of Applied Engineering Research(IJAER) 

    CFD analysis work guided by Prof.Shan M Assis on “Numerical simulation and Performance investigation of an enhanced Carbondioxide refrigeration system” is the ongoing work in this area. Analysis based on triple tube helical heat exchangerfinned spiral Gas cooler, trapezoidal tube-in-tube heat exchanger will be evaluated.

    Composite Material Development:

    Research work on “Mechanical property evaluation of Coir reinforced Aluminium laminate epoxy” done by final year B.Tech Mechanical engineering students  M Harishankar Nair, Anoop Khan P, Deepak S and Joji Oommen George was partially supported by Central Coir Research Institute of India and the ‘Composite Characterization and Testing division’ of Indian Space Research Organisation. The paper has been published in the International Journal of Applied Engineering Research(IJAER). Students got permission from Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), for further testing of the newly developed composite material. The project was guided by Prof. Shan M Assis

    Based on the results of “Projectile Impact Testing” from DRDO, a new work has been initiated in 2014 by Prof Shameer V Hameed by trying a new composition of materials.
