Department Profile

The department of Mechanical Engineering at B.V.C College of Engineering  was established in the year  2009. The B.Tech. (ME) Program was duly approved by the AICTE and Government of Andhra Pradesh and affiliated to Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU), Kakinada.

P.POORNA MOHAN, Asst. Professor, a Dynamic Personality with teaching and industrial experience is working as Head of the Department. The department is also supported by Dr.M.Anjan kumar , Principal who has more than two decades of academic experience in premier institutions

Of the many engineering disciplines, Mechanical Engineering is the broadest, encompassing a wide variety of engineering fields and many specialties. Although it is commonly assumed that Mechanical Engineers are automotive engineers, in fact, mechanical engineers are employed in an enormous range of technical areas including: acoustics, air-conditioning, automatic controls, computer-aided design, energy management, fluid dynamics, robotics, bio-mechanics, and turbo machinery, just to name a few. Mechanical engineering is a challenging, rewarding, and highly respected profession, a profession the Department of Mechanical Engineering at BVCCE supports through its commitment to excellence in its teaching, research, and service missions.

Department Mission:

To educate and prepare individuals for leadership in industry, government, and educational institutions; to advance the knowledge base of the mechanical engineering profession and to influence the future directions of the mechanical engineering education and practice

Department Goals:

Long Term:

Place teaching / tutorial material of each subject on the Net to enable students to browse at their own place of learning.

  • To upgrade the laboratories towards research activities.
  • To equip the department as a Centre of Excellence for Energy Systems Engineering.

Short Term:

  • Motivate all the faculty to adopt the latest techniques in teaching and learning process.
  • Encourage the II & III year students to undergo industrial training for 3 to 4 weeks.
  • Encourage the II,& III year students to present papers in students  paper Presentation contests.
  • Encourage Teaching and Technical Staff to pursue the higher education.
  • Motivate and encourage each faculty to present / author a technical paper / book in a year.
  • Plan for 100% placement and Higher education

Facilities:

The department of Mechanical Engineering is well equipped with various modernized Laboratories as shown below:

1. METROLOGY

2. FLUID MECHANICS AND HYDRAULIC MACHI

3. THERMAL ENGINEERING

4. METALLURGY

5. MACHINE TOOLS

6. MECHANICS OF SOLIDS

7. PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY

8. HEAT TRANSFER

9. ENGINEERING WORKSHOP

Additional facilities like  Internet, and Seminar Hall/Auditorium are also available.

Personality Development Programs:

Personality Development courses are conducted every semester for Final and Pre-Final Year students in entire year Personality Development courses helps our students in facing interviews and in securing placements.

Cultural Activities:

The students are motivated to participate in various cultural activities conducted at inter departmental level and inter institutional level. Every year cultural events are organized in our college during the college annual day.

Industrial Visits:

The coaching offered in the classroom has been purely theoretical which in long run prove to be less effective. Visits to a wide range of industries and Technical Exhibitions are regularly arranged to keep the students abreast of the recent developments in the mechanical field.

Continuous Evaluation:

Staff members give periodical assignments and tutorials to ensure that the students are up to date. As per the regulations of the University, 2 subjective tests & 2 online tests are conducted during each semester, each for a duration of 2 hours & 20 min respectively. Best 2 tests are considered for the award of Sessional Marks. Preparatory Grand Tests are conducted at the end of each semester. Students whose progresses were not satisfactory are counseled by the concerned teachers / HOD.

Soft Skills:

In the regular time-table, periods are allocated for the developing of Communication Skills – (I) Seminars, (ii) Group discussions, (iii) Personality Development, (iv) Extra-curricular Activities, (v) Ethics (vi) Career Development etc. The Auditorium / Seminar hall is allocated for each department for half-a-day in a week towards conducting Seminars and Group Discussions. Expert Lectures from Specialists of the Industry and Academic Institutions are also arranged. Documentation is maintained for all events.

Teaching Aids:

Teaching aids such as LCD Projector, OHP, CD demo, equipment demonstrations, Models, Charts etc are regularly used to enhance better understanding.
