The Department of Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical Engineering is one of the core and evergreen branches among all the branches of Engineering. It deals with the concepts of Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Robotics, Kinematics, Structural Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, Power Sector, Refrigeration, Air Conditioning sector and Aerospace. It is further expanding beyond its boundaries and becoming more interdisciplinary in nature. Mechanical Engineers can find employment in both Governments as well as Private Sector. Mechanical Engineers are required to design, manufacture, install, test, operate and maintain a wide array of machines and mechanical systems which are used in Industries.
There is an excellent scope of job avenues for Mechanical Engineers in India. Few of them are listed below:
Automobile Engineers deal with designing, manufacturing and operating all kinds of vehicles. With the increasing demand of producing Environment-Friendly vehicles which cause less pollution, the road for automobile engineers is both exciting and challenging. From designing modern day pollution less electric cars to designing the world’s fastest cars, automobile engineering is an exciting field for those who love cars.
Aerospace Engineering is one of the most challenging and exciting fields of Engineering. Aerospace Engineers find a number of job opportunities in the Aviation Sector, Spacecraft Manufacturing companies and Defense Organizations. Aerospace is one of the fields of Mechanical Engineering that has wide scope in the Defense Sector.
Mechatronics Engineering is a highly complex branch of Mechanical Engineering that includes a combination of various Engineering Disciplines like Mechanical, Electrical, Communication and Computer Engineering. Mechatronics Engineers Design, Maintain and Repair Automation Equipment. Robotics is an application of Mechatronics.
Material and Manufacturing Industry is the field of Production, where Mechanical Engineers perform the activities which include developing new material, manufacturing components and end products.

Mr. Shashank Agarwal
Mechanical engineering received the Certificate of Appreciation by Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Technical University, Lucknow. After screening in the first round and presenting the idea on 15th January 2019, his concept was selected for prototyping grant and exhibition as per predefined format and guidelines in The Innovation Gallery- Water Challenge is in line with Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Technical University, Lucknow.
The Purpose of KEC students to participate in Indo Asian Solar Challenge was, to Stimulate Research into, And Development of, Sustainable Transport, Meaning That the Indo Asian Solar Challenge Is Primarily a Design Competition. Where our TEAM SHAURYA-KEC got the 4th position in Indo Asian Solar Challenge (IASC-2016)
TEAM - SHAURYA
MECHANICAL DEPARTMENT-KEC design and fabricate a hybrid vehicle under and prove their creativity and their engineering skills in comparison to teams from other universities or colleges around Asia. Teams use IC engine and electric motor to run their vehicle which is called hybrid formula vehicle or a vehicle that is charged from an electric source and propelled by electric drive only which is called electric formula vehicle. Team got the First Prize in Business plan cost and lightest weight in Hybrid Vehicle Challenge.
TEAM - ETRIGAN
KEC participated in Society of Automotive Engineering northern India section (SAE-NIS) EFFI-CYCLE is an Intercollegiate design competition for the undergraduate and graduate engineering students. Students of KEC have to designed, fabricate an energy efficient Hybrid human powered three wheeled electric vehicle and received various section recognitions.

The academic experience with one of the best infrastructure and excellent faculty among the top Engineering colleges of Delhi NCR endured me with lifelong career excellence. The best thing about the Krishna Engineering College was part of a supportive environment, where everyone is focused, help each other,and you are encouraged to succeed as individuals. The flexibility extended at KEC helped me focus, and having the teachers willing to answer any questions throughout early in the morning or after college helped too. The time I spent at KEC cannot be explained/justified in one paragraph, it was extraordinary.

Thank you KEC, for giving me such an environment where I could prepare myself for the upcoming challenges of career and professional life. I went through several changes while studying in KEC, right from the dream of joining defense forces to the academic research, which further ended up with being in Indian Oil Corporation as Maintenance Officer to look after all the machineries maintenance and serving for the India's Energy.

Here I came as a school boy and graduated as a corporate man. Here, I not only developed my academic skills but also got a global exposure in every field be it sports or others. At last, I would like to thank all the faculty members for being supportive and helping me in taking off my career to a good start.The exceptional programmes and teaching methodologies backed by practical skills and industry interface have given me the confidence to pursue my career ahead.

College life at KEC was one of the best part of my life. I have got wonderful friends and great faculty support in college. The core strength of KEC is the strong faculty especially for mechanical department. I really feel proud that I'm a part of KEC family.

First of all, I would like to thank all KEC staff for the support and encouragement, they provided in four years of my life at KEC. Good infrastructure, friendly environment and timely guidance helped me not only in enrichment of professional skills but also in development of overall personality. It has been a great experience to be a part of KEC. I will miss my college days forever.

Taking admission to KEC was a life changing decision for me. I feel great being part of KEC. The best part what I feel about this college that being a mechanical girl I was given a chance to explore and learn many new things about my field and other than that even. Being located in NCR students here are having opportunities of getting selected in many good companies as Delhi NCR is the hub of IT as well as many other top MNCs. I got my first job in IBM India Pvt. Ltd. but since I was also taught in KEC that you should never stop learning, this motivated me to appear for CAT and today I am pursuing MBA from IM(FMS)- BHU.

If I had to make a brief statement about what KEC gave me, it would have to be diversity. Where else could a student like me meet such an array of educated and successful people. Where else could I have made so many new friends-including many lifelong friendships-and meet so many batchmates of different ages and backgrounds. In a way, KEC was a great blend of education (both technical and practical), knowledge, experience & relationships. KEC faculty members were my real mentors but at the same time, great friends as well. I am extremely grateful for all that I learned from my experiences as a student at KEC.

I am currently working in EWAC Alloys Limited as Application Specialist. I completed my B.Tech at Krishna Engineering College (Mechanical Engineering Department) in 2017. It was a great learning experience,and the sessions taught thereupon are helping me to deal with day to day industrial problems. Faculties of our college were very supportive,and they guided students in the best possible manner. Thanks to Krishna Engineering College for providing me with a platform to step into the open market. I also want to thank every individual including all the staff and other supporting people without whom this journey couldn't have been possible.

I enjoyed my time at KEC. It was a good experience. Faculties are excellent and supportive. KEC puts more emphasis on practical work and industrial visits that is really appreciated.
01 Jan 2011
I had a great time at KEC, learnt a lot about the subject as well as life. Faculties are supportive, the overall environment is good. I believe one must not fix their mind to something, and students should explore more and think creatively. This will help them grow in the industry also.
