R & D facilities in the Department of Mechanical Engineering

Vasavi College of Engineering was started in the year 1981 and the Department of Mechanical Engineering was one among the first course to be started with an intake of 60, later the intake was enhanced to 120. The department has 26 experienced faculty members which includes 6 Professors and 6 Associate Professors with high retention rate. The Department also offers PG Programme with specialization in Advanced Design and Manufacturing. The department has 11 Ph.D holders and 9 faculty members are pursuing Ph.D from various universities. The department is recognized as research center under Osmania University and 24 research scholars are pursuing Ph.D and 02 scholars were awarded PhD during last five years.

The department faculty published 102 research articles in various national, international journals and conferences from last five years. The department has received about 1.50 crore worth projects from Department of Science and Technology, GOI, DRDO and UGC during the last 10 years.

The department has excellent infrastructure facilities in the form of laboratories which includes Applied Thermodynamics, Thermal Engineering, CAD/ CAM, Materials engineering, Automation & Robotics, Welding, Metal Forming Technology, Metal cutting & Machine Tools engineering, Metal Casting, Metrology & Instrumentation and Dynamics of Machines Lab. A Central workshop with the facilities of Carpentry, House Wiring, Fitting, Plumbing and Smithy imparts necessary skills to the students.

The CAD/CAM Lab is equipped with licensed advanced CAD and CAE software, viz., Siemens NX , ANSYS , Hyper Works , FLUENT, CFX with Turbo Tools, ADAMS, GIBBS-CAM, LS Dyna, MATLAB. The department has sophisticated equipment like 3D printers, Fast Fourier Transforming Analyzer (FFT), Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar, EDM, Profile projector, Image analyser, submerged arc welding etc.

The Department has been interacting with industries such as M&M, DRDO, BDL, Ordnance Factory, BHEL, REVL, SIEMENS etc, and also with higher learning institutes Osmania University, JNTU, IIT-H, BITS-H, NITW for the growth of the department.
