Department of Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering is the broadest engineering discipline encompassing a wide variety of engineering fields and many specialties. Mechanical engineers learn about materials, solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, control, instrumentation, design, robotics, computer aided Design, CAM, CFD and manufacturing to understand mechanical systems. The breadth of the mechanical engineering discipline allows students a variety of career options. Mechanical engineering is therefore a challenging, rewarding, and highly respected profession.

The Mechanical Engineering Department was established in the year 2004. The Department offers students the opportunity to pursue an exceptional, high quality education. Our 468 students (420 Under Graduate and 48 Post Graduate) learn in a thriving and dynamic environment emphasizing solid academics and sound hands-on skills. Department is one of the largest in terms of faculty, students, & activities and continues to lead and expand its activities in various directions. The Department has a distinguished faculty, dedicated staff and superb student body that effectively work together to fulfill our academic mission. The faculty members are drawn from the industry and academicians to enhance the delivery of academic programmes. Our faculty members strive to provide outstanding teaching, cutting-edge research, effective mentoring of students, active improvement of curricular programs and effective leadership in professional societies.. The academic activities are supported by seven well equipped laboratories/research centres. Experimental and computational facilities are being continuously upgraded. Industry interaction has been increased with formation Entrepreneurship Development Club. A Robotic Research Centre for the research in Robotics Technology, was inaugurated in 2010 and the department boasts one of the best equipped CAD-CAM centre in Kerala. The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Vimal Jyothi Engineering College is committed to excellence in its teaching and research. The major research efforts are in Robotics, CFD, renewable energy and heat shielding materials for space applications.
