SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as 'SRM University') is located in an extensive sylvan campus of 140 acres skirting the National Highways (NH145), in the outskirts of Chennai. SRMIST is one of the top ranking Universities and most premier engineering destinations in India, which is established in 1985 by the Founder Chancellor, Dr. T.R. Paarivendhar. Now it is functioning in campuses located at Kattankulathur, Vadapalani and Ramapuram in Chennai and one in Modi Nagar, Ghaziabad with over 40,000 students and 2,800 faculty members, offering wide range of undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programs in Engineering, Management, Medicine & Health Sciences, Agriculture, Law and Science & Humanities. The Institution has moved up through international alliances and collaborative initiatives to achieve global excellence. SRMIST also collaborates with various foreign Universities. Now the Institute enjoys an unsurpassed reputation in academic and corporate circles being the preferred manpower source for vision to be recognized as a world - class learning institution. SRMIST has been categorized as grade A by Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD); Government of India and also accredited by NAAC with 'A++' Grade in the year 2018. SRM is Category I status institute as per UGC accreditation.
About the Department

The department is functionally divided into four broad areas of specialization: (i) Design (ii) Manufacturing (iii) Thermal and iv) Materials Engineering. The B.Tech - Mechanical Engineering program at Kattankulathur campus is accredited by Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), USA. The department also offers M.Tech and Doctoral programs in various specializations. The present faculty strength is 135 in which 51 Faculties are PhD Holder. About 800 + research papers and 850 + conference papers have been published in national and international levels. More than 30 patents have been filed in national and international levels. The following salient workshops and conferences conducted by the Department of Mechanical Engineering were International Conference on Advances in Mechanical Engineering 2006, Short Course on Mechanics of Composite Materials and Structures: 2015, Workshop on Development, Manufacturing and Analysis of Advanced Composites, 2015 and short course on FEM, 2015, National Conference on Advances in Mechanical Engineering (NCAME 2016), Brain Wave Robotics, 2017, International Conference on Advances in Mechanical Engineering (ICAME 2018).
3rd International Conference on Advances in Mechanical Engineering (ICAME 2020): 27-29th Feb.
The primary goal of the conference (ICAME 2020) is to promote research and developmental activities in mechanical engineering. Another goal is to promote scientific information interchange between researchers, developers, engineers, students, and practitioners working around the world. You are cordially invited to participate in the 3rd International Conference on Advances in Mechanical Engineering and the Associated Conferences, jointly held under one management and one registration. The conference focuses on a range of issues but not limited to: Solid Mechanics, Structural, Thermal, Energy, Manufacturing, Aerospace, Materials Science, Mechatronics, Robotics and Control, Micro and Nano Mechanics, Automotive, Biomechanics, Bioengineering, Industrial Applied Mechanics, Multidisciplinary and Emerging Areas of Engineering.
(i) 1st International Conference on Recent Advances in Composite Materials (ICRACM-2020): 26th Feb.
ICRACM-2020 aims at bringing together academicians and researchers in various disciplines to share knowledge and exchange views, for useful industrial applications of composite materials. This conference will broadly cover the follmving topics: polymer composites, metal matrix composites, ceramic composites and advanced ceramics, Nanomaterials and Nano-composites, Biomaterials and Bio-composites, testing and Quality control of composites, application of composites in low cost houses and bridges, composite technology, recent developments in fibre and tribological applications. The conference ,vill facilitate discussion on the latest trends in the entire gamut of composite materials.
(ii) Two Day Workshop on Advances in Finite Element Method: 24 - 25 th Feb.
The major problem facing the engineering analyst contemplating the use of the technique lies in acquiring appropriate knowledge to provide assurance that the finite element model produced gives a reasonably reliable representation of the "real life" problems being analyzed. The workshop is designed to bridge the gap between the theoretical finite element knowledge and its industrial applications by providing sufficient insights into the relationship between the physical data (e.g., loads, boundary conditions, constitutive behavior, etc) and the finite element equations. This course is intended to provide graduate students, engineers, and researchers working in aerospace, automotive, civil, mechanical engineering, mathematics, and information technology industries as well as numerical analysts and materials scientists with the theory and applications of linear finite element analysis of problems from heat transfer, fluid mechanics, solid and structural mechanics, and general field problems.
(iii) One Day Workshop on Design of Experiments: 24th Feb.
The objective of this workshop is to provide the participant's a theoretical and practical knowledge on the Design of Experiments and the skill required to analyze engineering problems with the commercially available software package. This workshop is designed in such a way that, in addition to the fundamental topics, advance topics have been included inline with the current research scenario which will be covered through expert lectures and hands on training.
(iv) Two Day Workshop on Composites: 24 - 25th Feb.
The objective of this workshop is to provide the participants a theoretical and practical knowledge on polymer composite materials. This workshop will be handled by Prof. DEBES BHATTACHARYYA, Distinguished Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering and Director of the Centre for Advanced Composite, Materials, University of Auckland, New Zealand. This workshop will broadly cover the following topics, Applications and manufacturing of composite materials, Mechanics of composite lamina/laminate, Failure prediction, analysis and design of sandwich structures.
(v) One Day Workshop on Advances in Thermal Systems: 25th Feb.
The objective of this workshop is to provide the participants a theoretical and practical knowledge on the latest advancements in thermal systems covering topics such as HVAC systems, Solar Technologies, Energy Storage, Refrigeration and Airconditioning systems, Heat Transfer, Nano applications in thermal, TC Engines, biofuels and latest policies, emission control technologies, etc. These topics will be handled by distinguished professors and with industrial experts.
