FISAT offers Mechanical Engineering programs at the Bachelor’s and master levels. Its strong and interactive curriculum and hands-on learning will make the students capable of taking their career to the next level, whether it be in the professional engineering practice or in advanced study. The department, right from its inception in 2009 has been focusing on high-quality teaching along with integrated laboratory experience. The Discipline of Mechanical Engineering effectively connects teaching of engineering education to active research in different areas. The department has the most modern infrastructure to undertake high-end teaching, research and developmental activities in its eight laboratories. We aim to provide our students with a perfect blend of intellectual and practical experiences that helps them to serve our society and address a variety of needs. With a solid grounding in the principles and practice of mechanical engineering, our undergraduates are ready to engage in ethical approaches to engineering, with concern for society and the environment. Our program at the postgraduate level aligns academic course work with research, to prepare students in specialized areas within the field of mechanical engineering.
The department has a team of highly qualified and experienced faculty.
To mould globally competent engineers, who can contribute to society through innovation, leadership and commitment.
The current Mechanical Engineering batch holds the best result in the recently published university results among numerous other colleges affiliated to the Mahatma Gandhi University.
The B.Tech program is affiliated to the Kerala Technological University, Thiruvananthapuram with an annual intake of 120 students.
B.Tech. in Mechanical Engineering is a comprehensive degree program. The goal of the mechanical engineering curriculum is to create a flexible undergraduate and post graduate educational experience in Design, Mathematics, Modelling, Computing, Management, and Engineering Science.
The principal study topics in the Mechanical Engineering program include Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics & Heat Transfer, Solid Mechanics, Materials Engineering, Manufacturing, Energy Systems, Dynamics & Control, Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) and others.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers the Post Graduate Programme with specialization in Computer Integrated Manufacturing since 2013 with an annual intake of 18. The course is affiliated to MG University, Kottayam and approved by AICTE.
Objectives & Activities
To prepare effective and responsible graduate and post graduate engineers for global requirements by providing quality education.
To constantly strive for improving pedagogical methods employed in delivering the academic programs.
To respond effectively to the needs of the industry and changing world.
To train the UG and PG students to work in the field of computer integrated manufacturing where in these students will get detailed insight into manufacturing automation.
In the present scenario, conventional industries are getting retrofitted into automated industries in order to take advantage of the higher production capacity by increased use of automated machineries and its optimization. The manufacturing and maintenance of these machineries require more number of qualified professionals in the area of computer-integrated manufacturing.
The knowledge of CIM will benefit students to get into high profile jobs of highly automated industries fairing in areas like Aerospace, Agriculture, Automobile, Biomedical, Defense, Soft Computing, Materials Management and Supply Chains etc.
Candidates who have acquired BE/B.Tech or equivalent degree in appropriate branch by securing not less than 60% marks in aggregate.
The admissions are through central counseling done by DTE, kerala on the basis of merit/GATE. A few seats are also available under sponsored and Management quota. GATE qualified candidates are eligible for scholarship through AICTE.
Students get an opportunity to work in various laboratories on advanced software and instruments. Some of the facilities in the laboratories are:
Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) software (Abacus), Computer Aided Design (CAD)software (Pro-E), CNC Production Lathe, Hydraulic and Pneumatic Control Systems.
