Computer Integrated Manufacturing

  • Affiliated to Kerala University
  • Approved by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE)
  • 2 year Post Graduate Programme ( 4 semester)

TKM College of Engineering was the first college in Kerala to start M.Tech Programme in Computer Integrated Manufacturing which has been offering this M.Tech since 2006 with the aim of promoting graduate engineers to seek specialization in the field of Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing. The course functioning efficiently and has contributed many projects of technical importance.
As the name indicates it is the manufacturing with the help of computers to connect physically separate processes involved in complete manufacturing from the raw material to the finished product. Hence there is automation which allows decision to be made faster with least error and without requiring intervention.
