1 Fluid Mechanics & Hydraulic Machines Lab This laboratory caters to the needs of mechanical and electrical engineering students in the subject of fluid mechanics and hydraulic machinery. The laboratory is equipped with a large number of equipment and experimental setups to study the fundamental and applied aspects of hydraulics and fluid mechanics. The setups comprise a variety of flow measuring devices like venturi meters, weirs, notches, orifice meters, and flow study techniques for estimating losses in pipes, study of impact of jets over vanes, Hydraulic Ram, etc.
2 Engineering Workshop The workshop facility was set up to meet the requirements of the students of mechanical and electrical engineering. The workshop imparts training in basic skills like fitting, plumbing, black smithy, tin smithy, welding, foundry and also in house wiring. It is equipped with requisite tools, equipment and has experienced staff to train students.
3 Fuels And Lubricants Lab This laboratory caters to the needs of mechanical engineers in the field of engineering chemistry like physical and chemical aspects of solid, liquid and gaseous fuels and lubricants. The laboratory has excellent equipment for finding out properties of fuels and lubricants like flash and fire points, viscosity, calorific value, percentage of carbon residue and grease index numbers. The lab has viscosity measuring apparatus like Redwood and other viscometers; bomb and other calorimeters for establishing the calorific value of solid, liquid and gaseous fuels, and equipment for evaluating solid lubricants like grease.
4 Thermal Engineering Lab This laboratory was set up to meet the requirements of the second year students of mechanical engineering. The laboratory equipment includes heat engines like multi-cylinder petrol engine, single cylinder high-speed diesel engine and variable compression ratio four-stroke petrol engine. The equipment also includes refrigeration test rig, air conditioning test rig, models for determining valve timing of two-stroke and four-stroke engines. Students are also exposed to different types of boiler models.
5 Metallurgy Lab This laboratory was set up to meet the requirements of the second year students of mechanical engineering. The laboratory houses microstructure study equipment for different materials to determine the hardening ability of steels by Jominy and End Quench Tests. The Rockwell hardness tester was purchased to determine the hardness of various treated and untreated steels.
6 Mechanics Of Solids Lab This lab has been established to meet the requirements of the second year students. The laboratory is equipped with a universal testing machine of 20 ton capacity, a torsion testing machine, impact testing machine, spring testing machine, deflection measurement apparatus, Rockwell and Brinell hardness testing machines.
7 Heat Transfer Lab The subject of heat transfer is one of the core areas of mechanical engineering. In this laboratory, the students are exposed to experiments on conduction heat transfer like determination of thermal conductivity, estimation of heat conduction in composite wall etc. Also the experiments included are on natural convection heat transfer, forced convection heat transfer, condensation and boiling heat transfer, radiation heat transfer and heat exchangers. Also an experimental test facility to study the heat transfer coefficient using power fluids has been developed.
8 Metrology Lab This lab deals with experiments in metrology. Metrology means study of measurements. The students have to do accurate measurements of lengths, heights, diameters using vernier calipers and micrometers. Also the experiments to be conducted include, gear teeth measurements, angle measurement, thread dimensions measurement, surface roughness measurement, etc.
9 CAD / CAM Lab This laboratory has been established to meet the requirements of the final year students. The areas falling under this category include drafting 2D and 3D, part modeling, finite element analysis and computer-aided manufacturing. The various software’s incorporated for this purpose are AUTO CAD, ANSYS, and PRO-engineer. The students are trained on CNC trainer lathe and milling machines in CAM lab.

All the above laboratories are established phase-wise with quality equipment as per the guidelines of the University. The labs are well equipped as per the guidelines of the University. The labs are also equipped with suitable working tables and sitting place for the students to observe readings as well as record writing.

Dear Students and Parents we wishing you a very Happy New Year and Andvance Happy Pongal
