The Department of Mechatronics engineering (MCT) was started in 2015 with an intake of 60. The B-Tech in MCT degree program follows the scheme and curriculum of “Kerala Technical University” to which the College is affiliated. This course is 8 semesters according to AICTE standards.
The Department is supported by highly qualified, efficient and committed teachers. They are periodically delegated to attend conferences and various faculty development programs to keep abreast of the latest developments in the field of the Mechatronics Engineering department. Faculty in the department use facilities such as Moodle and other combined teaching and learning aids to improve the quality of teaching and learning. Faculty members and students are also active participants in NPTEL’s online courses with many accolades. Our emphasis is on putting theoretical knowledge to practical use which leads to the development of highly efficient engineers The department is constantly striving to improve students’ knowledge, skills and attitude and many value-added programs such as lectures, workshops, technical questionnaires, project exhibitions, design competitions, job presentations, personality development courses, etc. to facilitate this.
For effective student guidance and counseling, a counseling system is introduced which includes class advisor per class. The class advisor is in charge of the entire class and each advisor keeps an eye on a group of students. They manage student attendance, discipline and personal issues. Regular parent-teacher meetings are held to evaluate student performance. The mechatronics engineering department has well-equipped state-of-the-art laboratories to provide students with the necessary and sufficient support of practical knowledge, as well as encouraging them to test their innovative research and development idea and a library with a large collection of books and magazines. The Mechatronics Engineering department effectively affix teaching of engineering education to stimulate research in different zones. We encourage innovative ideas and keep in hands with students for project activities. Our graduates are in high demand by industry and often promoted quickly to senior positions around the world. A degree in Mechatronics Engineering is ideal preparation for starting a career in the Automation, electronics, robotics, manufacturing, materials processing, aerospace, medical, control electronics. Many of our graduates go on to careers that make an important contribution to society in terms of wealth generation, safety and environmental sustainability.
The vision of the department is to mould competent mechatronic engineering graduates having academic and industrial excellence in industrial automation research and innovative product development driven by mechatronics systems.
- Mould Mechatronics Engineering graduates responsive to the industrial needs and social commitment.
- Develop theDepartment as a centre of excellence in Technical Education and Research and in allied areas.
- Impart the right blend of knowledge and skills to students and enable them to apply it in real life
- Achieve innovation in developing industrial products with social responsibility
