The disciplines of Mechatronics, Automobile Engineering and Agricultural Engineering have been converged to Department of Applied Engineering. Here, the students are exposed to a wide range of topics within the field, including the technical aspects on systems design and implementation. The flexible academic curricula and hands-on research opportunities prepare the undergraduate and graduate students for successful careers in a multitude of disciplines. Live projects like battery operated car, ornithopter and greenhouses for vegetables and fruits, managed completely by students are examples of initiatives taken by the Department.
Mechatronics is a synergistic combination of precision engineering, electronic control and mechanic systems. It provides an opportunity, not only humanization of machines, but also changes the mindset and the approach to technological issues and most importantly teaching new technologies and ways of acquiring knowledge and skills. Here, the students are trained to develop new solutions to industrial problems using mechanical and electronic processes and computer technology, ideated to design and build completely new products by integrating various technologies, built and test factory production lines combining manufacturing and technologies to improve existing processes and to maintain and improve previous industrial and manufacturing processes and designs.
Automobile Engineering deals with designing the vehicle, manufacturing new products, repairing, and servicing vehicles. It is indeed a sub-branch of mechanical engineering and also known as automotive engineering or vehicle engineering, involving studying of motor systems, design, technology and many more. Automotive engineers are involved in almost every aspect of designing cars and trucks, from the initial concepts right through to manufacturing them. The curriculum prepares the students as knowledge seekers with fundamental knowledge, interdisciplinary problem solving skills, societal awareness, and confidence required to excel in their chosen professions.
Agricultural Engineering provides inputs and trained manpower to the State of Andhra Pradesh towards making farming progressive through efficient use of natural resources like water, land and energy. Basically being agriculture dependent economy having small, medium and large farming groups, this course describes the possibility of incorporating the newest technologies into farming for increased productivity.
