About Us

Since the inception of Vidya Academy of Science & Technology, Thrissur in the year 2003, the Mechanical Engineering Department started functioning. This oldest and the largest department aims at imparting high-quality education in Mechanical Engineering through practical and theoretical training.  The department is well set to create and maintain an environment which will facilitate the effective teaching-learning process for the faculty and students, thus moulding smart and dynamic mechanical engineering graduates who will shoulder real-life engineering problems by applying practical and theoretical knowledge along with various management tools and professional ethics. Started with an intake strength of 60 students, and now it is 90 with two batches. The department has  18 faculty members, and 6 supporting staff in the workshops and labs. Six faculty members are with Doctoral degree from reputed institutes and Two are pursuing it. One lab staff member is with B. Tech degree. In addition to the Central Workshop, the department has Eight laboratories which are full-fledged and equipped for conducting advanced experiments also. Every year, the department comes up with innovative and useful projects done by the students, a few of which have won awards from various professional bodies. The two prestigious projects from ISRO and SERB successfully completed. As part of the annual technical festival ‘Techfest’, the students exhibit the latest technological developments in various fields and improve their industry readiness as soon as they complete their graduation. Good number of faculty members are resource persons in various sectors, councillors and consultants. The students undergo regular industrial visits and internships. Apart from the regular course content, Add On courses in British English language, Additive Manufacturing, software like Autodesk Autocad, Inventor, Fusion 360, Ansys etc are also extended to the students. Online courses through ASAP in AI/ML, Soft skills, coding etc are also provided to the students. The release of department magazine annually - MEK’D-, is unique.  Commendable performances of students in the university examinations, achievements in research and higher education, entrepreneurship, employment in various government and non-government sector, deserves special mention.

Activities

An Interactive session by Dr. Narayanan Komerath, Professor, Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, United States was held at 10.00 am on Tuesday, December 20, 2016. He enlightened the gathering of Directors, Principal, Heads of Departments, faculty, and other staff members about need for developing and implementing various technologies to meet the energy requirements of our nation. The energy needs can only be met by developing a host of technologies across bio-gas, natural fuel, solar photo-voltaic cells, etc. Over 300 million people in our country still lack access to basic power; so a big challenge also lies in educating our people in the villages and helping them achieve their basic necessities.

An Interactive session by Dr. Narayanan Komerath,

Mr. Divakaran PK, Manager Operation at CEFIRE Global also spoke during the occasion about the various offerings from his organization and on how these could be leveraged to help skill development among the students.

 

Later, Dr. Narayana Komerath fielded questions from the gathering and answered them which ranged from engineering education to product engineering, and patents.
