“To be a centre of excellence in the field of Mechanical Engineering where the best of teaching, learning and research synergize”

Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Mailam Engineering College, the esteemed & the fastest growing college in Tamilnadu. As Chair of the Department, I take pride in the fact that our department has well qualified faculty and staff members who are available to the students fulltime. A well equipped state of the art laboratory helps the students to keep in pace with the racing technology.

The faculty members in addition to regular teaching are also busy in consultancy services to local industry and Govt. departments, organizing and participating national/international conferences, workshops and seminars, upgradation of laboratories (through college budget and grants from AICTE and other bodies).

The students of Mechanical Engineering have been recruited by renowned companies like Cooper busman, Sundram fasteners Ltd, TCS, Wipro, HCL etc. They have also brought laurels to the department by winning various competitions at national level co-curricular and extracurricular activities like paper presentations, projects, quizzes, sports etc.
