The department of Mechanical Engineering at Coimbatore Institute of Engineering and Technology was started in the year of 2009. The department offers an undergraduate programme B.E. Mechanical Engineering with sanctioned intake of 180 students, postgraduate programme M.E., Engineering Design with a sanctioned intake of 18 Students and Doctoral Research Programme. The department has separate wing, state-of-the-art laboratories with advanced software and department library. The department has a team of highly qualified, dedicated and motivated faculty members and they are continually publishing the results of their research work as technical papers in international and national journals and conferences. An interactive relationship is maintained between the students and staff which enable the students to develop a sound foundation in the stream in a conducive environment.
A very warm welcome to the website of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Coimbatore Institute of Engineering and Technology, Coimbatore. The discipline of mechanical engineering has a long and distinguished history of innovative invention and technological breakthroughs that have tremendously benefitted the progress of man and society. One only needs to think of the inspiring early work of the Wright brothers to realize the enormous impact the invention of manned flight has had on humankind. This is, but only one of numerous examples of the productive ingenuity of engineers. In today’s fast-changing world, the ever-growing challenges of limited resources, rapid climate changes and preservation of environment demand a new generation of mechanical engineers cultivated in the necessary skills and innovative spirit to meet them. At the Department of Mechanical Engineering, we are committed to achieving excellence in training not only competent manpower for the profession, but in nurturing engineer-leaders with the ingenuity and drive to provide innovative and bold solutions to these global challenges. Pursuing cutting-edge and impactful research and development is also an essential part of the department’s focus and contribution to the search for solution. If you are a potential undergraduate student, we invite you to join us in exploring the exciting opportunities that a mechanical engineering course and career can provide through the pages within our website. If you are a potential graduate student, you will find that the department is very actively pursuing research in diverse fields ranging from manufacturing engineering, renewable energy, aerodynamics, computational mechanics and others.
