To be a centre of excellence in Mechanical Engineering, to provide the best teaching-learning and research environment, to produce high quality professionals and entrepreneurs to cater the needs of society.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering came into its existence right from the inception of the KITSW in the year 1980 and has been serving as catering department to other disciplines. The Department is one of the largest in terms of faculty, students, and activities, continues to lead and expand its activities in various directions. The department currently runs undergraduate programme, one post graduate program in M. Tech. Design Engineering and offering a Ph. D programme. The department is recognized as research centre for Ph.D. programme by Kakatiya University. Research scholars have registered and are pursuing their Ph. D work in the areas of Thermal, Production and Design. The B. Tech (Mechanical Engineering) course was accredited thrice by NBA.
Department has a total of 36 qualified, experienced and committed senior faculty and ten of them are with Ph. D. degrees. Rest of faculty members possess M. Tech. Degrees and are pursuing their Ph.D. programmes. The faculty members are grouped under three broad specializations for academic purpose namely Design stream, Production stream and Thermal stream. They have been engaged in research in all the classical areas of Mechanical Engineering and upcoming areas like alternative fuels, solar energy, unconventional machining, composite materials and powder metallurgy. The department has got grants under MODROBS from AICTE. The department is very well equipped with resources both in terms of conventional equipments and latest software’s. Department has more than 80 computing systems and workstation loaded with wide range of engineering software products covering all areas of mechanical engineering like ANSYS,CATIA,AUTOCAD,PROMODEL,AUTOMODE and EDGECAM. The department has a central workshop facility well equipped with the basic infrastructure to impart technical training to the students of all disciplines. The academic activities are supported by 13 laboratories and the department has 09 skilled technical staff to associate with different laboratories.
The students are consistently securing National ranks in the GATE/GRE examinations and are well placed in all the premier Institutes (IIT's/NIT’s) of the country and abroad. Most of the students, who graduate from the department, end up taking leading positions in industry, research organizations, academia, entrepreneurs and government in both India and abroad.
