Mechanical Engineering

History

The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in the year 1982 with the introduction of 3 year Diploma course with the intake of Forty students as class strength in CIT Sandwich Polytechnic, Coimbatore. We have well qualified faculty members who train the students in both Theoretical and Practical aspects. Our Department students are motivated by the faculty to participate in various technical and non-technical events conducted in different colleges and they have won many prizes. 

The Department endeavors to emphasis more on inter disciplinary approach and to meet the demand of Engineers and to encourage the  working  people from other disciplines. The Part Time program also was started in the year 1997 under the Department of Mechanical Engineering with an intake of 60 students with duration of study as 4 years.
