The four-year B Tech program comprises of 8 semesters integrated with theoretical and/or practical sessions, focusing on key industry-linked technological domains including HVAC, Pneumatics, Automation, Mechatronics, Product design and development, Heat exchangers and Vehicle Design. Our courses introduce the mechanical engineering students to a range of technical and management fields.

About The Programme

One of the most diverse and versatile engineering fields, mechanical engineering is a branch of engineering which deals with the application of engineering physics and fundamental mathematics for analysing, evaluating and developing modern machinery and its components. From production of safety-pin to the development of a jet-engine, the field of mechanical engineering touches virtually every aspect of modern life. Mechanical engineers play key roles in a wide range of industries including automotive, aerospace, biotechnology, Air-conditioning, computers, electronics cooling, Heat exchanger design, micro electro-mechanical systems, energy conversion, robotics and manufacturing.

The mechanical engineering curriculum can be divided into three main domains: Thermofluids, Machine Design and Manufacturing Technology. Thermofluids deal with those processes where fluid flow and heat transfer are simultaneously involved. The concepts covered in thermofluids based subjects motivate and inspire the students to connect with nature which can later be applied in actual engineering applications. The core courses under thermofluids domain are: Fluid mechanics, Thermodynamics, Heat and mass transfer, Thermal Engineering, Refrigeration and Air conditioning. The second domain is Machine Design where the engineering students are taught to design and analyse the machine components. The core subjects under machine design domain are: Mechanics of Solids, Mechanics of Machinery, Design of machine elements and Dynamics of Machinery. Manufacturing Technology is the third domain where the students are introduced to various manufacturing techniques and machinery utilised in industry. The core subjects in this domain are: Manufacturing process, Mechatronics, Machine tools and Metrology

PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITIES

DEPARTMENTAL ASSOCIATION: MAXCET

Mechanical Engineering Association aims to maintain the high level of interaction existing between the students and the faculty members. Apart from this, it organizes technical sessions, workshops and contests through a close tie-up with the industry. It also assists in managing the resources and labs of the department.

The goals of Mechanical Engineers Association of CCET is to provide access to the latest technical information and research, and career opportunities. It also aims to motivate the students to organize, to coordinate & to participate in Co-curricular Activities and Extra- Curricular Activities by conducting conferences & seminars of technical interest, technical workshops, technical tours, meetings, and quiz on a regular basis. Such Activities helps the students to be more competitive in the era of Globalization.
