Employment of mechanical engineers is projected to grow 9 percent from 2016 to 2026, as fast as the average for all occupations.
The Mechanical department began in 2009 with 60 students in its undergraduate program. In 2014, we introduced a Master's program in CAD/CAM, starting with 18 students. Our department is also a recognized research center under Anna University, supporting over 40 research scholars in various fields. Currently, we serve over 400 students across undergraduate, postgraduate, and Ph.D. programs.
In just ten years, our department has achieved many milestones. We now have about 30 faculty members, expertise in different areas of mechanical engineering. Around 60% of the faculty have completed Ph.D. degrees, and others are pursuing Ph.D. We are proud that two faculty members have completed postdoctoral fellowships at international universities. Our faculty contribute through publications in journals, research articles, and conference presentations. Three of our faculty members are listed in top 2% scientist in their respective domain assessed by Stanford University USA and Elsevier publisher.
Welcome to the Mechanical Engineering, KPR Institute of Engineering and Technology
Established in 2009, the department has rapidly carved a position in the annals of engineering excellence. As the Head of the Department, I am honoured to represent a community of dynamic innovators, dedicated educators, and passionate students.
Mechanical Engineering has stood long at the crossroads of technological advancement, and consistently delivers solutions to both contemporary and future challenges.
It is with immense pride that I highlight few of our faculty members being recognized as among the world's top 2% scientists by Stanford University for three consecutive years - 2021, 2022, and 2023. This accolade is a testament to our commitment and our desire to be at the forefront of global research.
Students are the lifeblood of the department and have showcased their prowess by competing and excelling at both national and international levels. Their achievements in esteemed competitions such as the International Quality Convention, SAE BAJA, ESVC, Efficycle, Gokart, and Dirt Bike Competitions reflect the caliber of talent nurtured within our walls.
In our pursuit of holistic education, the department offers specialized training in areas like Design and Automation, Material Science, Advanced manufacturing, Motorsports, Electric Vehicles, and 3D Printing. Moreover, we pride ourselves on the robust industry ecosystem. This ecosystem not only enhances the curriculum but also ensures that the students receive top-tier training, valuable internships, and promising placement opportunities.
