The Department of Mechanical Engineering was started in the year 2008. The department offers B. Tech. program in Mechanical Engineering. Mechanical Engineering department has a team of highly qualified and experienced faculty, well developed infra structure and lab facilities. At present, the department intake capacity is 60 students per year at the B. Tech. level. The department helps the students to develop their overall personality and make them worthy to compete and work at global level. The department has evolved a comprehensive student-centric learning approach, designed to add significant value to the learner's understanding in an integrated manner through workshops, lab sessions, assignments, training, seminars, projects and independent study.
A degree in Mechanical Engineering is ideal preparation for starting a career in the Automotive, Aerospace, Process, Medical and Marine industries or other areas such as accountancy. Many of our graduates go on to take their careers that make an important contribution to society in terms of wealth generation, safety and environmental sustainability. Apart from carrying out practical classes as per academic curriculum, workshop caters to needs of different departments of the Institute in terms of executing works of their B.Tech. The department also welcomes students from other departments of the institute as a gesture of support to their time-to-time academic needs. The students are well placed in leading industries as well as in the higher research level institutions of national and international recognition.
Mechanical Engineers play a significant role in the design and manufacturing of all of the products and systems essential to everyday modern life. Mechanical engineers create solutions and troubleshoot problems, playing a key role in the design and implementation of systems parts in many industries. They enjoy solving problems using powerful mathematical, scientific, and analytic skills.
Mechanical engineers can be involved in managing people, projects, and resources, as well as in developing and using new materials and technologies. It is predicted that an increasing number of engineers will have interdisciplinary training courses, more often working in multidisciplinary teams.
Our department is mainly aimed to provide the useful knowledge to the students in developing innovative thoughts for future India.We have a team of dedicated and experienced faculty, driving the department towards excellence in teaching. We believe in holistic development of students and aim at identifying the hidden skills, developing the personality and inculcating human values to mold our students into technically-qualified professionals ready to face the competitive world.
To be a good mechanical engineer one needs to b e an expert in what he does. The Mechanical Engineering Department at JCET provides the upcoming engineers with the most equipped laboratories covering all experiments of importance. The fully equipped laboratories are considered to the best among the engineering colleges all over Kerala. The laboratories are equipped with the most modern instruments, machines and computers. The Practice laboratories for different semesters are listed below.
The first thing for a student when he hear about mechanical engineering are the vehicles which they see in the world. Even though its a wrong conception since it is more in concern about automobile engineering, the mechanical engineering students have to study about Internal Combustion Engines, the heart of automobiles. In IC engines they could study about various performance test on engines. This laboratory helps the student to learn in more about the automobile components and also about the performance parameters of engines. The experiments are conducted in 2 stroke and 4 stroke engines which were actually in use.
Machine Tools consists of various equipment that manufacture products according to the design provided. The Mechanical Engineering students as a part of the syllabus are given a chance to study about different machine tools like lathe, shaper, slotter. In Machine Tool laboratory students are expected to manufacture a product on the basis of a design provided that covers operations like centering. turning, thread cutting. The student need to apply his innovative skill to develop the work piece given to a suitable output. The lab also provides them a chance to study the machine in closer and to develop the in-borne talent in them.
In this laboratory which is a continuation of the machine tool laboratory are equipped with machines like shaper, slotter. The students are also given the chance for a hands on experience in part programming in Computer Numerical Control machines. the most modern machine provided at JCET help the students to know about the various commands included in the machine. The industries are now equipped with CNC’s and hence a practice in CNC help the students to grab knowledge by creating a part programme for a desired product.
CAD/ CAM Laboratory offers the students to grab knowledge in the design softwares that are used in the engineering design field. The world as it progress finds newer technologies to accomplish the task assigned at a faster pace. The engineers need to be in touch with the design softwares as drawing is a tool for an engineer to communicate. AUTOCAD providing the root to the design softwares, various design softwares like Pro E, Solid Works,SolidEdge,CATIA have been developed. Along with that various analysis softwares like NISA, ANSYS, ABAQUS are also used in the industry. The students are given a chance to get in touch with software through CAD/CAM Laboratory.
The lab is equipped with various measuring and control equipment like Pressure Gauge, Temperature Measuring Devices, Torque Sensor, Displacement Measuring Device, Various Strain gauges, Speed measuring Device, stroboscope, Force measuring Device, etc
The Hydraulic Machines Laboratory provide the students a chance to work with turbines and pumps. The lab is equipped with the model of the commonly used turbines in power generation like Pelton Wheel, Kaplan Turbine, Francis Turbine. The laboratory is also equipped with various pumps that come across in our day to day life. The Hydraulic Machines Laboratory helps the students to clearly understand the working of pumps and turbines.
The subject fluid mechanics is one of the core sector in the mechanical engineering field dealing with the fluid properties, type of flow, the governing equations of the behaviour of fluid . The students are given exposure to the various theory portions covered in the syllabus by the experiments arranged in the Laboratory. This well equipped laboratory consists of the experiments related to the basics of fluid mechanics and also to various experiments related to fluid flow and the measurement of discharge and velocity of flow. Students are given the best opportunity to clearly understand the concepts they were taught in Fluid Mechanics subject.
It is always best to start from the basics. The Basic Mechanical Workshop helps the students to get in touch with the conventional way of production in mechanical engineering. They are given a chance to have hands on experience in carpentry, smithy, fitting and foundry. The students get knowledge in the conventional methods by doing the experiments on their own.
