About Us

  Of the many engineering disciplines, Mechanical Engineering is the broadest, encompassing a wide variety of engineering fields and many specialties. The 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, biomechanics and turbo machinery, just to name a few. Mechanical engineering is a challenging, rewarding and highly respected profession.

  The department of Mechanical Engineering at Panimalar Polytechnic College with its commitment to excellence educates the engineers of tomorrow by integrating classroom theory and practical hands-on projects, and also by emphasizing the process of learning and critical thinking by conducting industrial visits.

  The teaching and research programs in the department are organized according to both disciplinary and inter-disciplinary themes. We cover all the core disciplinary areas of Mechanical Engineering including dynamics, controls, solid mechanics, materials, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, automobile and design.


  The Mechanical Engineering department has well equipped laboratories enabling the students to apply and verify the fundamentals that they have learned at the classrooms. There are separate labs for each of the semesters that include:

  Workshop ( Fitting, & Wiring) Laboratory
  Computer Aided Machine Drawing Laboratory (Air Conditioned)
  Manufacturing Technology - I Laboratory
  Metrology & Measurement and Machine Tool Testing Laboratory
  Electric Drives & Control Laboratory
  Fluid Power Laboratory
  Computer Application Laboratory
  Computer Integrated Manufacturing Laboratory (Air - Conditioned)
  Process Automation Laboratory (Air Conditioned)
  Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Laboratory (Elective)
  Thermal Engineering Laboratory
  Manufacturing Technology - II Laboratory
  Communication & Life Skills Laboratory (Air - Conditioned)

Industrial Visits
