The department of Mechanical Engineering at NMREC had a modest beginning in August 2006 with an intake of 60 students. This was made possible, driven by the vision and foresight of our dynamic Secretary Sri Nalla Malla Reddy garu, who always felt that Mechanical engineers have a vital role to play in the manufacturing sector and the private engineering colleges should be committed to this cause, in spite of heavy investments and in the face of severe competition from other branches of engineering related to IT.
The Mechanical Engineering Department is one of the most reputed departments in terms of facility, faculty, students, and activities in the college. It continues to lead and expand its activities in various directions.
The department has well experienced faculty and staff members of proven ability with industrial and administrative skills. It has well equipped state-of-the-art laboratories that cater to the needs of the students.
The department is known for the Expertise in CAD-CAM, Manufacturing and Production Technology, I. C. Engines, and also in other core areas. Experimental and computational facilities are being continuously upgraded.
The students are actively involved in various reputed national level technical sympozia and technical competitions in various colleges and is credited number of titles to the department. The department has various student chapters like AME, SAE guided by faculty for the overall development of the students.
The department has been providing an excellent placement to students. The placement cell also facilitates the students for getting training in industries. Good number of Short Term training Programmes (STTP), Workshops and Seminars are also organised for students for sharing and updating their technical skills.
To create globally competent mechanical engineers capable of working in an inter-disciplinary environment, contributing to society through innovation, entreprenuership, leadership with professional ethics.
The laboratory facilities comprise of
i. Engineering workshop with facilities on carpentry, fitting, metal casting and welding,house wiring etc. to impart knowledge in basics of day to day needs.
ii. Production technology consisting of hydraulic press, welding, injection and blow molding
iii.Metrology and machine tools.
iv. Thermal engineering dealing with automobile engines
v. Heat transfer
vi. Material testing and Metallurgy
viii. Hydraulic machinery consisting of turbines and other hydraulic testing systems
ix. Computer aided designing and machining.
x. Mechanics of solids
For an all-round development of the student weekly seminars are held as a part of academic calendar. In these seminars students are required to speak on a chosen topic based on recent developments as well as possible future developments in their field and other related fields.
This provides an opportunity for the student to develop speaking and discussion ability and also enhances their knowledge through an exposure various technical journals and technical contents available in the internet to enable them come with flying colours in any placement interviews as well as in competitive examinations.
In addition to student seminars expert lecture are arranged so that students are benefited from the vast experience renowned people.
Academic Calender of the University JNTUH is followed by the department.
