Professional Memberships

With the outstanding performance in academics, the cherry on the cake for the department is its student clubs and the professional body memberships.

Society of Automative Engineers (SAE) : SAE is a non-profit body that promotes & undertakes initiatives for knowledge dissemination & advancement in mobility technologies catering to land, sea, air & space. The society based at USA, spreads its wings over 150,000 memberships in around 100 nations.

BAJA : The BAJA SAE Series an event for the undergraduate engineering students organized globally by the SAE. It tasks the students to design, build, test and validate a single seater four wheeled All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) in which around 500 student teams from various parts if the country. The team invincible 2.0 from the department is composed of 25 hard working and dedicated students from the final and pre- final years, passionate about automobiles. As the most recent record, this year, the team is one of the two selected teams from the state of Andhra Pradesh to participate in the final event from a competition of 410 teams throughout India, including pioneers such as IITs and NITs. The sedulous team work has been appreciated by the Chief Minister of the State, Sri.N.ChandraBabu Naidu during his visit to the college.

SUPRA: Under the SAE, is another event named SUPRA, which throws forward a competition of the design and fabrication of a racing car. Team Svayukti emerged out with glorious success, taking onwards the legacy of the college standing in the 27th among 250 teams across the country.

ELECTRIC SOLAR VEHICLE CHALLENGE (ESVC): TEAM Vikranta, the all energetic 25 membered team made their mark by securing the 5th position in the E-BAJA’15 from a competition of 300 odd teams. The team has also participated in the Asia’s Largest Solar Vehicle Racing Event and was bestowed upon with the “Best Appreciation Award”.

GO-KART:Enthusiasm is all that a Go-Kart puts in. “National Go-kart Design Challenge – 2016” is an event that deals with the designing and building of a Go-Karting Vehicle. “Team Aadhya”, a 16 membered all-girls team from the department have showed all their prowess by standing 40th in the National level. Also, the team has proved its worth in the prestigious “ Vishnu Kart Championship’16, projecting the spirit of team work.

Vision
  • To produce globally competent Mechanical Engineers with a commitment to serve the society.
  • To produce competent Mechanical Engineers with strong fundamentals and sound problem solving temperament.

Mission
  • Imparting high quality education with emphasis on fundamental concepts and practical application built on the basis of character ethic with the goal of creating engineers bearing a strong sense of responsibility, whetted to meet the challenges of the industry and mature enough to blossom into highly capable leaders in their chosen area of interest.
  • Inculcating strong mathematical & computing fundamentals among students that form the baseline for modern day solutions with emphasis on design development.
  • Inculcating among its students the need for continuous learning and the skills necessary to continue their education, develop professionally and push the boundaries of knowledge long after their graduation.
  • Imbibing in its students a deep understanding of expected professional, ethical and societal responsibilities.
  • Inculcating among its students rich and reasonably comprehensive skill set with practical exposure in putting the same to use for problem solving in a team setting enabling them to be valuable contributors to the Mechanical industry & society at large immediately after graduation.
  • Providing a stimulating environment for faculty & students alike that fosters a culture of knowledge seeking and sharing & appreciation of intellect helping all involved to grow both as individuals and as Professional Mechanical Engineers.

The curriculum must require students to apply principles of engineering, basic science, and mathematics (including multivariate calculus and differential equations); to model, analyze, design, and realize physical systems, components or processes; and prepare students to work professionally in both thermal and mechanical systems areas.
