- To provide basic knowledge in other disciplines of engineering which support Mechanical Engineering.
- To mould graduates who are able to apply engineering knowledge for the design and development of products useful to the society.
- To produce expert graduates with mastery over modern tools and practices of Mechanical Engineering enabling enhanced employability.
- To develop graduates who exhibit ethics, professionalism, team work, leadership and continuous learning with social commitment and integrity.
Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
Mechanical Engineering is one of the major activities in the engineering profession and its principles are involved in the design, study, development and construction of nearly all of the physical devices and systems. Continued research and development have led to better machines and processes helping the mankind.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering at University College of Engineering Nagercoil was incepted in the year 2009 with the state of the art infrastructure as per the norms and beyond.. The Department is led by Dr. M. Edwin and supported by qualified, experienced faculty members. Its impact on the institute and on society is easily demonstrated by noting the alignment of the department's evolution with key events and technological advances in the India and elsewhere. Today, the Department of Mechanical Engineering of UCEN attracts and features an extraordinary rich diversity and quantity of talented individuals, with nearly 400 undergraduates, and over 15 faculty members with 9 doctorates.
We have laboratories with world class facilities. Our Department has different laboratories that focus on enhancing the practical knowledge of the students and helps them to comprehend the technical concepts in a practical manner. The students are exposed to:
- CAD/CAM LABORATORY
- METROLOGY LABORATORY
- MACHINE SHOP LABORATORY
- DYNAMICS LABORATORY
- ENGINEERING PRACTICES LABORATORY
- THERMAL ENGINEERING LABORATORY
- HEAT TRANSFER LABORATORY
- MECHATRONICS LABORATORY
- SIMULATION LABORATORY
- AUTOMOBILES LABORATORY
The Department is lead by Dr.V.A.Nagarajan.
Students are encouraged to develop expertise in areas of personal interest as well as to develop knowledge of subjects outside of engineering related to
construction and maintenance of infrastructure in harmony with the society and environment.
