Mechanical Engineering

About the Department

The Department of Mechanical Engineering is as old as the institute itself, started in the year 1980 and goes from strength to strength, evolving alongside with the institute and technological advancements in the field. The department offers 2 courses: B.E. - Mechanical Engineering, and M.E. - CAD/CAM. This department used to also offer B.E. - Production Engineering as one of the courses but it is under progressive closure from the year 2022. The department has 22 faculty members of which 14 are Doctorates and remaining all are pursuing their Ph.D. The department is recognized as Research Centre by the Osmania University in 2013, having 7 faculty members recognized as research supervisor and 17 research scholars pursuing their research work. The department is well equipped with state-of-art Laboratories, supported by 20 technical, well experienced non-teaching staff members. Undergraduate CAD lab is having more than 50 computers and Post Graduate CAD/CAM & Computational lab is having 20 computers with a complete FMS setup having Robotic Arm, Conveyer system, CNC lathe and CNC Milling machines.

Mechanical Engineering department tops the college departments by having 3 Indian patent grants and 2 patent publications under the college research and development funding. Many International patents, design patents and copyrights are also granted to the research oriented faculty members of the department. The department have also signed MoU’s with industries to provide campus placements, student projects, industrial visits and internships for its students. Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE-MJCET club), Engineers Without Borders (EWB) and Club Optimus are the three Student chapters of the department wherein students are given opportunities for performing in extra-curricular activities and also options to participate in National level student competitions.


To produce high caliber, competent, industry oriented Mechanical Engineers.


To impart quality education by providing state of art technical facilities and enhance the professional abilities to meet the demands of the ever-changing manufacturing industry.
