Message from the Chairperson, School of Mechanical Engineering

Welcome to the School of Mechanical Engineering of SRMIST!

The School of Mechanical Engineering of SRMIST comprises of four departments, namely. Department of Aerospace Engineering, Department of Automobile Engineering, Department of Mechanical Engineering and Department of Mechatronics Engineering to cater the inter-disciplinary experiential active learning (IDEAL) needs of students. Each department is offering UG, PG and Doctoral programs in the related modern areas. This School functions with seven blocks and three hangers in the green-filled main campus and exclusive laboratory facilities for the first year students in the annexure campus.

To make our students industry-ready, the School of Mechanical Engineering has collaborative activities with industries, institutions and professional bodies in addition to the intense academic curriculum with the state-of-the-art laboratories and research facilities. Industry sponsored laboratories and industry grade machineries make it easy for the students to get training and do laboratory exercises in industry-like environment. To inculcate research aptitude to the students, seminars, webinars, workshops and conferences are organised regularly by the national and international experts in the respective domain.

In the coming years, the School of Mechanical Engineering wish to place the UG and PG programs as one among the leading academic programs of our country by embracing modern pedagogy and professional practices. With our research focussed faculty members, the School will continue to carry out activities with direct social impact (renewable energy, energy storage, smart materials, and electric vehicle technology) and promote translational research.

Our students are fully trained during their stay at SRMIST and emerge as successful Engineering professionals and Managers to cater to the increasing requirements of the fast changing global environment.
