Mechanical Engineering Department
Mechanical Engineering is an old field. Its name derives from the Latin machine, which means invention or trick. The first machines such as the wheel and the needle with an eye date back to the stone age, but the term engine, adapted from the Latin ingenious, natural ability, had by the time of the late Roman Empire become associated with invention, and eventually, with a skilled machine - the engine. The sense of magic prevailed in engineering for much of the pre-industrial age (Newton's writing reveals his work to be in the traditions of alchemy). Today, mechanical engineering denotes a broad field that has to do with the generation and transmission of mechanical energy. Since this motive energy is often derived from heat, much of the work of mechanical engineers involves thermal energy. Similarly, since these processes need to be housed and the energy transmitted, mechanical engineering is also concerned with the structures in which such devices are housed, and with how they work and fail - mechanics, which is closely related with the process of deciding how to put these devices together - the act of design. Finally, it is necessary to evolve processes by which these devices are to be constructed, which leads to the science of manufacturing. In addition to these tasks, the trend towards greater quality has seen a gradual move towards integration with sensors and automation, leading to the modern science of robotics (the word, related to a slavic word for bonded labour or serf and cognate to the Sanskrit arbhas, weak child, is barely seventy years old).
Mechanical Engineering at SRKIT
The current streams of study in Mechanical Engineering at SRK Institute of Technology reflect the curriculum designed by Board of Studies of JNTU Kakinada..Within each area, the department combines strengths in the traditional as well as the modern. Since 2011, the department has felt that engineering education should be oriented towards design. Integrating various aspects of the field in order to create a solution to a problem, i.e., a synthesis has been the main focus. The current undergraduate curriculum emphasizes this through a sequence of seven departmental courses (including a two semester project) and two first year course in Engineering Mechanics and Engineering Drawing. This is complemented by a set of courses focused on the basics, and a series of broad-based electives. In contrast, the emphasis in the graduate curriculum has been on more advanced topics, and over the years, students have gained increasing freedom to opt for different electives. The total course requirement has also been reduced in the interests of a better quality thesis. Each year, the department graduates 120 B.Tech.s,. The faculty strength is currently 24. Past and Present The Mechanical Engineering Department at SRK Institute of Technology played a role model for many engineering institutes in Vijayawada as the Management belongs to the Industrialist Background. Today, the world of mechanical engineering at large is facing dramatic changes under the influence of advanced computational tools, vastly improved simulation and analysis, and entirely different manufacturing protocols.
One of the strengths of the department has been its strong outreach.. The bonds with industry and the outside world are often reflected in the classroom, sometimes as external speakers, and sometimes through the industrial insights gained by faculty and students. One of our difficulties, as in many other areas of the department, has been the challenge of finding energetic young faculty to drive these engines of growth. The Future In the coming years, unlike in the past, the effectiveness of the undergraduate program will be increasingly gauged by the quality and extent of its service to the technological needs of the nation, and we see the mechanical engineering department moving strongly in this direction. New materials, such as plastics, resins, and embedded sensor materials are being introduced into the curriculum. Thus, it is hoped that the department will emerge into the dawn of the newly liberalized era a much stronger and re-vitalized force. At the same time, the technology available to a mechanical engineer is changing. Metal is being replaced by plastic, dull grey by brightly splashed colour. Driven by superior analysis, the designs are undergoing deeper, functional change. The resulting devices are emerging increasingly sleek and sophisticated, the tremendous complexity of design hidden under the fabric of simplicity of use. Looking at the machines of today, the day is surely not too far off when mechanical machinery will be viewed at par with the simplicity of perfection inherent in the sailing ship and the violin. CENTRAL FACILITY One of the missions of SRKIT is technology outreach to Indian industries. The Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) Laboratory has been successful in achieving this objective by bringing together under one roof all tools of product design and prototyping DIRECTIONS brings you a brief report on the vision and growth of the CIM Laboratory at SRKIT.

METROLOGY & INSTRUMENTATION LAB
The Metrology Lab is useful for engineering students to provide about different aspects of measurement. The measurement either linear or angular one is being dealt. Most often the measuring instruments losses their accuracy after a prolonged period of usage. This leads to error in measurement which further being supplemented with other errors. An over view of calibration has been dealt thoroughly and its importance is emphasized. Various types of instruments are being used and their accuracy has ascertained with the help of standards like slip blocks and sine bar. Surface roughness measurement and checking of tool angles one of the major feature of this laboratory.

4 Develop pneumatic and hydraulic circuits using Automaton studio
The overarching philosophy in mechatronics is that enhanced performance, flexibility, and reliability can be obtained in a product or process through the integration of mechanics and electronics under the control of software.
Because of the ubiquitous nature of mechatronics, the mechanical engineer must understand the fundamentals of mechanics, electronics, and software in order to be successful in today’s world. By and large, most undergraduate mechanical engineering programs do a good job teaching the fundamentals of mechanics, but fall short in giving students the necessary understanding of electronics, computer interfacing, and how these are integrated in product design and manufacture. The experiments described in this manual are an attempt to give the student a broad range of hands-on experiences to help build a solid foundation in analog and digital electronics, sensors and transducers, actuators, and microprocessor interfacing, so he or she can begin to function effectively as mechanical engineer in an increasingly mechatronic world.
