The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Madanapalle Institute of Technology & Science started along with the institution in the year 1998. The department is currently offering one UG program (B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering) with an intake of 240 and one PG program (M.Tech with Advanced Manufacturing Systems), with an intake of 24. In addition, the department is also a Recognized Research Centre (RRC) under JNTUA, Anantapuramu, which enables scholars to pursue full time PhD in Mechanical Engineering, in the department. The B.Tech. programme under department has been continuously accredited and re-accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) since 2013. The most recent NBA accreditation, in 2019, was under TIER I with a score of 715 out of 1000. The College Academic Council and the Department Board of Studies strive hard to provide quality education and most advanced curriculum and syllabus to make the students industry ready and excel in today’s technologically intensive careers. The alumni of the department have been successful in building remarkable careers in Mechanical engineering and allied disciplines.
The Department has a thriving research program with externally funded projects worth a total of more than Rs. One Crore. Faculty are also engaged in providing engineering consultancy for industrial entities. The research output from the department, in terms of quality journal publications and patents, has been steadily increasing in recent years. The students of the Department benefit from this thriving R&D culture in the department which provides them with an exposure to the state of the art research facilities and cutting-edge technologies.
The Department is endowed with highly qualified and experienced faculty most of whom have obtained their Doctoral degrees from eminent institution in India like IISc, IITs, Central Universities, NITs and Foreign Universities. The department is also well equipped with modern laboratories. In addition, there are several industry supported labs in the department, which are established with help and support from core engineering companies like Siemens and Dassault Systemes. The industry related labs strive to improve the employability of the students in core companies.
Since its inception, the department has been striving to take forward the vision and mission of the institution by making specific contributions in promoting education and research in the broad field of Mechanical Engineering. The vision and mission of the Department are as follows:
- To maintain a high standard of mechanical engineering education through outstanding teaching innovative curriculum and research training that reflect the changing needs of society.
- To attract highly motivated students with enthusiasm, attitude and interest in Mechanical Engineering.
- To pursue excellence in research and technology transfer.
- To increase the public awareness of departmental activities and the Mechanical Engineering profession.
