Department of Mechanical Engineering

The Department of Mechanical Engineering has been established in SCADIT Palladam in the academic year 2012-13 with the approval of AICTE, the Government of Tamilnadu and Anna University Chennai. In the academic year 2013-14, the strength in our department has gradually increased to 120 from 60. Guest lectures, Seminars and workshops have been organized for the students and the faculty by inviting eminent personalities from reputed institutions. The students are constantly motivated to participate in co- curricular and extracurricular activities apart from their academics so that they can equip themselves to cope up with the competitive world. Many of our students have participated and proved their technical skills in workshops, seminars and technical symposia in intra and inter- college events. Personality Development programs and mock-interviews are arranged periodically to empower the students in facing the modern world with confidence. This provides a platform for the students to express their talents.
