HOD- Mechanical Engineering Department

Mr. Manoj Sharma

[B.E., M.Tech. (Thermal Engg.), Ph.D. (Pursuing Mechanical Engineering), PGDPE]

Mechanical engineers are involved with the design, analysis, testing, manufacturing, control, operation, and maintenance of, any system that has a moving part. It deals with all aspects of the conversion of thermal energy into useful work and the machines that make this possible. If you are intrigued by how things work, fascinated by robots and automobile engines, then mechanical engineering may be the profession for you.

The department of Mechanical Engineering was established in the year 2004 with an initial intake of 60 students and further a section with 60 students is added later. The department is also offering Diploma in Mechanical Engineering with an intake of 30 students & M.E. program in DOMS with an intake of 18 students.

The department has 17 eminent faculty assisted by 6 technical staff lead by Dr. Pradeep Kumar Patil (Principal, SVCE),who are dedicated to provide the best quality of technical education in their respective areas of expertise. The department has MOU (memorandum of understanding) with various organizations like MSME, Indore. The students are encouraged to take up mini projects, major projects in various Industries and industrial tours in and around Indore are arranged periodically. The faculty of the department published papers in International Journals, National Journals, International Conferences and National Conferences so far.

The senior faculty has been drawn from various Industries/Research/Academia for imparting quality education and skill development for students to make them industry ready. The young faculty is encouraged to pursue their higher studies and research.

Many eminent Researchers/Industrial Experts/Academia are invited for giving expert lectures in current Technologies/Research trends for the benefit of the students. The department conducts annual Technical Fest, Workshops/Technical seminars for the benefit of students to bring out their hidden Talents. The students are encouraged to participate in National/ International level competitions being conducted at premier institutes and professional bodies. The students are encouraged by the management of SVCE Indore by funding to their R & D projects.

The senior faculties of the department are members of several technical societies including SAE and ISHRAE. The senior faculty of the department are the peer reviewers of renowned International journals.

MESA (Mechanical Engineering Student Association) is a student body for conducting carrier development and skill improvement programmes. The students of the department participate in national level Eficycle, NEKC, E-cart racing car competitions and in the recent past and placed were the winners for various segments including Best Design. The department conducts professional activities under the student chapters of MESA.

Students of the department have been placed in various companies like Triveni motors, , Infosys Technologies Limited, Tech Mahindra, TATA Consultancy Services, Cummins Technologies, Wipro, etc. A significant number of graduating engineers are pursuing their higher studies in various Universities abroad by securing higher qualifying grades in GRE/TOEFL/IELTS etc.

The most remarkable achievement by Alumni of this department was selection in various PSUs, MBA from various IIMs and pursuing PhD from various IITs and NITs across India and the world.

The students are trained as CNC programmers/engineers in the areas of industry standard CNC turning and milling to meet the local and national level recruitments. A dedicated CNC simulation with hands on experience is provided for design and development of prototype models. The significant achievement of the students is development of low-cost laser engraving machine under the guidance of department faculty in college STTP cell.
