The Department of Mechanical Engineering of Anna University Regional Campus Tirunelveli was established in September 2008. Presently the department has three well established disciplines – Aeronautical Engineering, Thermal Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. These disciplines have fully developed laboratories.
The faculty members have more than 15 years of rich teaching, research and industrial experiences. The faculty members have specialization in Energy Engineering, Thermal Engineering, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, Aeronautical Engineering, CAD and Manufacturing Technology. At present 6 regular faculty members, 2 administrative non teaching members are working in the department. The department has 5 doctorate faculty members and other 1 faculty member is pursuing Ph.D.
The department is equipped with state at the art of IC Engines, Energy and CFD simulation Laboratories, Aerodynamics, Aircraft Structures to meet the research requirements of UG and PG students. The faculty members working in the department have more than 15 years of teaching and research experience with Doctoral Level qualifications. The alumni are working in the MNC companies like FORD, RENAULT, NISSAN, QUEST AERO SPACE, QATAR AIRWAYS, DEFENCE Universities, ASHOK LEYLAND, CIPET, etc. In addition, many meritorious Alumni are continuing their research at IIT’s and Foreign Universities with grants.
The Department provides the well equipped CAD lab facilities with licensed CAD softwares CREO and ANSYS in order to improve their practical knowledge in their core areas of Engineering. Consultancy activities in progress at the Aeronautical Engineering and Thermal Engineering include,
- SUBSONIC WINDTUNNEL (upto 78 m/sec)
- PHOTO-ELASTIC BENCH APPARATUS
- VIBRATION BEAM SETUP-COMPUTERIZED
- CAD LABORATORY WITH ANSYS FLUENT AND CREO
- COMPUTERIZED UNIVERSAL TESTING MACHINE
