Message from HOD

Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering at IIITDM Kancheepuram. We started our journey in the year 2007 with the mechanical stream. Over the past decade, we have grown our expertise and competence in the IT-enabled Design and Manufacturing centred Mechanical Engineering curriculum and research.

We have a strong undergraduate program in mechanical engineering, including a B. Tech. – M. Tech. dual degree program. At the postgraduate level, we offer M. Tech., M. Tech by Research and PhD degrees. The sanctioned students’ strengths of B. Tech., Dual Degree and M. Tech.,  are respectively 120, 40 and 30 per year. At present, the department has 26 PhD scholars. We have many sponsored candidates from research laboratories and industries carrying out their doctoral studies in our department. 

Our department offers an IT-enabled design and manufacturing-based engineering curriculum. The primary focus of our curriculum is to impart technical know-how to students and promote their problem-solving skills and innovation of new technologies. Department offers a large number of interdisciplinary courses for providing cross-cutting knowledge to the students to pursue their interests. The course contents are periodically updated for introducing new scientific and technological developments.  Undergraduate students are encouraged to undertake various research projects and encouraged to spend time in the neighbouring industries.  

Our department maintains active research groups for carrying out collaborative and interdisciplinary research. We have state-of-the-art research facilities to support our academic programs and research. Excellent funding for research helps us to maintain high standards in our research infrastructure.

Our department has a distinguished record in both teaching and research. Faculty members have excellent academic credentials and are highly regarded. 

This website provides an overview of the academic programs, research activities of our department, research facilities, profiles of faculty members, and details of student activities.
