Meenakshi Sundararajan Engineering College inaugurated the Department of Mechanical Engineering in the academic year 2011-12. It is establishing state of the art laboratories in mechanical engineering. The department has laid emphasis in the following areas:
The department has a well-qualified faculty, with a blend of experienced professors and young lecturers. The faculty have extensive experience in manufacturing technology and energy systems engineering. They have varied background that enables them to teach the students with relevant practical examples, which enables an in-depth understanding of the subjects. The department’s endeavour is to develop its students to be `industry ready` when they graduate.The first batch of students will be passing out in June 2015. Based on the rich experience of the faculty, the growth trajectory of the department includes a setting upa good research base in the Mechanical Engineering and a sound postgraduate programme.

The vision of our institution is to provide facilities for students to learn the skills needed to become an industry ready mechanical engineer. Towards realization of this vision, we have established manufacturing technology laboratories, with an array of conventional machines like lathes, planer, shaper, slotter, milling machine etc. as well as modern machines like CNC lathes, CNC Machining Centre, Electric Discharge machines, Wire cut EDM, and Injection Moulding machines. We also provide support services for manufacturing press tools, jigs, fixtures etc. A state of the art metrology laboratory is being put in place for training our students in modern methods of design, manufacture, Inspection and testing.
We have established a computer laboratory in the Mechanical Engineering department with a bank of 40 powerful computers equipped with Licensed softwares such asPRO E, Auto Cadand Simulation software. This facility enables our students to learn to design components, to carry out 3D modelling, and to undertake projects in the areas of product design, development, and manufacturing. We have left no stone unturned with the intention of ensuring our students who graduate are highly competent Mechanical Engineers contributing in Nation Building Activities.
The thermal engineering labs have all the necessary facilities and instruments as stipulated in the Anna University syllabus.Our IC Engine Lab is equipped with DI Diesel Engines with data acquisition system for emission control and engine performance analysis. The lab is fully equipped with a Boiler, turbine and generator facility for our students to acquire hands on experience in power plant engineering.A second thermal lab is equipped with necessary facilities to turn out our students as fully proficient engineers in Heat transfer, Airconditioning, and Refrigeration field.
The lab is equipped with Dynamic Balancing machine, Vibration Analyser, kinematic models and control mechanisms for our students to get a grip on the dynamics of machines. Experimental results enable the students to understand the concept of unbalance condition and its effects in rotors and engines.
We have established a Metrology lab with state of the art facilities, such as Digital Profile projector, Toolmakers microscope, and a variety of precision measuring instruments. We have also installed a Coordinate measuring machine FAROPlatinum, with laser line probe, enabling non-contact as well as contact measurements with CNC setup, which provides our students to get experience on modern, advanced,and accurate metrology with an eye on Reverse Engineering.
This Lab provides a blend of electronics along with mechanical equipments, providing our students, digitization advantage in the field of mechanical engineering. It also enables the students to study the flow pattern and pneumatic actuators in day-to-day application.
The department boasts of a Computer Laboratory consisting of a Central Server and 40 high end personal computers, with latest Design and Drawing, AutoCAD, PRO-E, Cadem with 3D modelling softwares. The sole objective is to provide quality education and training to our students.
The college provides opportunities to the students to participate in variety of co-curricular activities that include participation in seminars and technology quizzes, presentation of papers, representing the College in other inter-collegiateseminars and conferences thus facilitating an overall development of the students during their stay in the College. The activities conducted during 2012-2013 are given below.
