B.Tech Programme

The department of Mechanical Engineering at Rajagiri offers 4 year B.Tech (Bachelor of Technology) degree programme in Mechanical Engineering. The first four batches of the Department (Batch 2011-’15, 2012-’16, 2013-’17and 2014-‘18) were affiliated to Mahatma Gandhi University (MGU), Kerala. From 2015 onwards, all engineering colleges in Kerala were unified in affiliation to A P J Abdul Kalam Technological University (KTU), and henceforth our B.Tech degree programmes too. Therefore, our B.Tech degree curriculum is in accordance with the scheme and syllabus of MGU for batches admitted upto 2014 and then in accordance with the scheme and syllabus of KTU for batches admitted from 2015 onwards. From the academic year 2018-’19, the college has admitted students to the course of Mechanical Engineering affiliated only to A P J Abdul Kalam Technological University, (KTU).

The B.Tech curriculum of KTU covers broadly the areas of Mechanical Engineering, Economics, Life skills and Sustainable engineering. Core subjects in Mechanical Engineering are under the categories of Material science and technology, Thermal and fluid sciences, Applied mechanics, Production engineering, Industrial engineering and Management, Mechanical systems, Design and analysis.  The syllabus comprises of various theory and laboratory courses under these categories. The theory courses comprises of Core courses and Elective courses. Each core theory course has a laboratory component, which provides a balanced mix in the quality of theoretical concepts taught in classrooms and experimental verification of the same. Overall, the undergraduate KTU curriculum in Mechanical Engineering programme is spread over 8 semesters and designed to have a total of 180 credits.

Within a few years of graduation, the candidate is expected to have achieved the following objectives:
PEO 1: Demonstrated the ability to analyze, formulate and solve/design engineering/real life problems based on his/her solid foundation in mathematics, science and engineering.
PEO 2: Showcased the ability to apply their knowledge and skills for a successful career in diverse domains viz., industry/technical, research and higher education/academia with creativity, commitment and social consciousness.
PEO 3: Exhibited professionalism, ethical attitude, communication skill, team work, multidisciplinary approach, professional development through continued education and an ability to relate engineering issues to broader social context.

Engineering Students will be able to be:

  1. Engineering Knowledge: Apply the knowledge of Mathematics, Science, Engineering fundamentals, and Mechanical Engineering to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  2. Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex Engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and Engineering sciences.
  3. Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex Engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  4. Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
  5. Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex Engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  6. The Engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional Engineering practice.
  7. Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional Engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and the need for sustainable developments.
  8. Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the Engineering practice.
  9. Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
  10. Communication: Communicate effectively on complex Engineering activities with the Engineering Community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  11. Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the Engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multi-disciplinary environments.
  12. Life -long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life- long learning in the broadest context of technological change.

Mechanical Engineering Programme Students will be able to:
PSO 1: Apply their knowledge in the domain of engineering mechanics, thermal and fluid sciences to solve engineering problems utilizing advanced technology.
PSO 2: Successfully apply the principles of design, analysis and implementation of mechanical systems/processes which have been learned as a part of the curriculum.
PSO 3: Develop and implement new ideas on product design and development with the help of modern CAD/CAM tools, while ensuring best manufacturing practices.
