Department of Mechanical Engineering
To help the students hone their technical knowledge, promote problem solving skills and create an urge in them to innovate and create new technologies.
The Mechanical Engineering Department at CPTC, Vattiyoorkavu, with its state-of-the-art facilities has been functioning efficiently since it was set up in the year 1958. Presently, it provides knowledge in the field of mechanical engineering to a group of 60 diploma students every year. The mechanical engineering department has become well organized over the many years since its inception. The practical laboratories are well equipped with adequate numbers of machines, tools, and equipment. The basic infrastructure is continuously upgraded to suit the changing needs of modern technology and course requirements. The courses of the mechanical engineering department have been formulated to give a strong insight in mechanical engineering for the students. Further, students are encouraged to put their minds into projects to apply the skills that they have already learned.
The nature of the projects is such that they involve multidisciplinary input. The projects are designed to test their engineering skills and also involve application of technical know-how.
The faculty of the mechanical engineering department are highly qualified with excellent academic credentials. The laboratory staff members are highly experienced and possess sound knowledge of the subject.
The department has also facilitated a certificate course in fibre reinforced plastics for interested students. This course has been set up with collaboration from India’s leading space agency, the ISRO.
A majority of the students passed out from the mechanical engineering department hold responsible positions in the industry, thanks to the campus placement services. The department organizes symposiums and industry experts are invited for subject talks and interaction with the students at regular intervals.
