TKMCE Mechanical Department
TKMCE Mechanical Department

 The Department of Mechanical Engineering has carved a niche for itself by offering the most competent instructional programmes to the students. In addition to the two Under Graduate Programmes (Mechanical Engineering and Production Engineering) the department is conducting a Post graduate programme in Industrial Refrigeration and Cryogenic Engineering. The department is an approved research centre of University of Kerala and is a QIP (Quality Improvement Programme) centre approved by AICTE for PhD programme.The faculty of the department investigates a broad range of research in about a dozen thrust areas. Some of the specific areas include thermal management of electronic systems, nano materials and nano fluids, super conductivity, cryogenic heat transfer, heat and mass transfer in multiphase and single phase flows, food preservation, cryocoolers for space applications, thermoacoustics, computational combustion, fracture mechanics, micro structural studies, biomechanics and gas hydrates.

Much of the research is conducted within the department, but many projects are carried out in collaboration with other reputed Institutions, Research and Development (R&D) organisations and laboratories in the country and abroad. The Department receives funding from agencies such as Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and other Government bodies. The faculty members render assistance to R&D organisations and industries through technical advice and consultancy services.

The Under Graduate programme in Mechanical Engineering was started in the year 1958 with an intake of 30, which was increased over the years to the current intake of 120. The Under Graduate programme in Production Engineering was started in the year 1980 with an intake of 15, and the current intake is 60. The post Graduate programme in Industrial Refrigeration and Cryogenic Engineering was started in the year 1984 with an intake of 5, and the present intake is 18. Students under the each programme have consistently performed well over the years in academics and have won laurels. Our alumni occupy stellar positions in renowned organisations globally.

  • The Chief Guest then interacted with the students for about an hour. In his address, he threw insightful ideas and guidance to students on a multitude of important issues facing the field of engineering education. He stressed upon the need for equipping the students with market oriented skills and knowledge which will provide better employability. He also called upon the students to work consciously towards becoming job providers by nurturing their entrepreneurial skills, rather than becoming mere job seekers. The formalities for getting into DRDO was also shared by Shri. K. Ajithkumar.
  • An experiment on contraption developed by a group of students was also demonstrated thereafter. The program concluded with the video launch of XLR8 racing, which is the debut team from TKM College of Engineering participating for Mahindra Baja 2017 conducted by SAEINDIA.
