Mechanical engineering is concerned with the design, construction, and operation of power plants, engines, and machines. It deals mostly with things that move. One common way of dividing mechanical engineering is into heat utilization and machine design. The generation, distribution, and use of heat is applied in boilers, heat engines, air conditioning, and refrigeration. Machine design is concerned with hardware, including that making use of heat processes.
To impart in depth knowledge and training in the field of Mechanical Engineering covering energy,thermal,design,manufacturing,industrial management,environment and to expose to the latest research development and techniques so as to cater to the growing needs of industries and to mould the students as good citizens of our country. One of the founding departments of CUIET,The Mechanical Engineering Department played a leading role in evolving an Engineering Science based curriculum and served as a role model for many academic institutes in Kerala. The department is well equipped with basic, modern and sophisticated equipments.
