The Mechanical Engineering Department, SVS College of Engineering, has undergone many research projects in the areas of Solar energy, Alternate energy sources, Advanced manufacturing technology, Industrial automation, Composite materials etc.

The department inculcates the spirit of enquiry among the learners; and thereby paves the way for an innovative learning environment through strategic alliances; and creates facilities in the frontier areas of science and technology for world class research.

CENTER OF EXCELLENCE – DIGITAL MANUFACTURING

  • Department of Mechanical Engineering has signed MoU with M/S. Kriatec Services Private Limited, Chennai, and established the Centre of Excellence – DIGITAL MANUFACTURING on 03.09.2014.
  • The Centre of Excellence facilitates the students to do the research projects in the areas of Computer Aided Modeling, Simulation, Analysis and Manufacturing. The center has the modeling softwares AutoCAD, SolidWorks, and Pro-E Creo; analysis softwares ANSYS, MATLAB and Automation Studio; computer aided manufacturing software Edgecam, and a A2 Plotter.
  • The center also has a CNC Turning Center and a CNC Vertical Milling Machine which are actual production machines.
  • The objective of the Center of Excellence is to enrich the knowledge of the students in the areas of Computer Aided Modeling, Simulation, Analysis and Manufacturing by organizing training programmes, workshops, seminars, conferences etc.
  • The Center of Excellence also brings the researchers from manufacturing industries and research centers to share their expertise among the students.
