Ph.D in Mechanical Engineering
The Department of Mechanical Engineering is one of the foremost divisions of the college inculcating knowledge, discipline and right attitude to students. The department has upgraded its facilities through sponsorship from AICTE and DST to the tune of Rupees 44 Lakhs. Advanced CNC machines and latest PLM, Product Development software also find a prime place in the Department. The professional activities include invited technical talks by top industrialists apart from collaborative programs under Mechanical Engineering Association, Product Development & Management Association of India (PDMA), IIIE, ISHRAE and SAE. The Department of Mechanical Engineering has established a Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) in the year 2013-14 by investing about more than One Crore Rupees towards the software and infrastructure.
The department has received sponsorships on infrastructure for Education and Demonstration purpose from various auto and manufacturing industries such as BMW Engine and Transmission Unit by BMW, Industrial Automation by Mitsubishi Electric India pvt Ltd., Automotive Engines by Tata Motors, Fuel Injection System Units by Delphi-TVS, Gear Box Assembly from MPC Force Motors and Demonstration model & components from Excel Die Castings, Venus Auto Components etc. These credentials have elevated RMKEC & our department into the “Best Industry – Linked Institute for Mechanical Engineering” at the National Level awarded by the AICTE – CII survey 2019.
