The department offers a B.Tech program in Mechanical Engineering. The Courses have been created by a specialized team of academics and all the B.Tech. The Mechanical Engineering programme is offered in collaboration with SIEMENS. The students of Mechanical Engineering are trained with SAP training. The curriculum of Mechanical engineering aims at creating the right mindset which ensures the creation of innovative, thoughtful, and socially aware engineers.
We believe in the practical nature of the domain and focus on learning by doing it practically. The department has active and vibrant students’ chapters of major professional bodies such as the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and the National Safety Council (NSC) India. Through these societies, students get a hands-on experience of real-world challenges and a platform for organizing, participating, and developing engineering dreams. The Department also has a dynamic coordinating section completely dedicated to student’s Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and Patents. Students are regularly participating in the “National and International events”
To ensure a smooth and effective practical learning experience, the Mechanical Engineering department at Kalasalingam Academy of Research and Education has established Robert Bosch Center of Excellence, Materials Processing Laboratory, Advanced Machining & Measurement Laboratory, and Machine Dynamics & Condition Monitoring Laboratory under Level 1 of the DST-FIST program (Fund for Improvement of Science & Technology Infrastructure in Universities & Higher Educational Institutions).
Department of Mechanical Engineering has collaborated with leading industries and research labs in India and abroad. The major collaborating industries are TAFE, SAP, Siemens, and FORD etc. In addition, the department also having collaboration with scientist and professors from various research labs in India such as DRDO Bangalore, NIIST Trivandrum, IISC Bangalore, IGCAR Kalpakkam, CSIR-CECRI, Karaikudi, IIT Delhi, NIT Suratkal, PSG Tech Coimbatore, etc, Moreover, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering have collaboration in the research aspect with foreign professors and research labs in various countries such as Brazil, Thailand, Turkey, Malaysia, South Korea, USA etc.
