‘Mechanical, materials and manufacturing engineering conference concludes at NIE

Mechanical engineering is in­tegration of so many multiple disciplines, said Director of NIE Board of Management S L Ramachandra.

Delivering the valedictory address at the two-day nation­al conference on ‘Mechanical, materials and manufacturing engineering’ (NCMME-2016) organised by Department of Mechanical Engineering of the National Institute of Engineer­ing (NIE) on Tuesday, he said “Earlier mechanical engineer­ing was confined to a par­ticular set of mechanics, but today it has swiftly grown to a different level and mechanical engineering is integration of various disciplines. The cred­its of improving mechanical field must be given to manu­facturers who have helped this field rise to this level. Though it is quite challenging, a lot of re­search is taking place across the world in the mechanical and manufacturing field and many were delivering posi­tive things both, in quality and performance, conference like this will have a great impact on each participant to think on new innovation ideas in this particular field.”

“Such conferences, sem­inars and symposiums help the students and institutions to take inputs and pass it on to the younger generation to shape up their career” he added.

The NCMME-2016 gave a premier interdisciplinary forum for researchers; practioners and educators to explore, dis­seminate and strengthen the initiatives in most recent inno­vations, trends and practical challenges encountered under the broad areas of materials, manufacturing, and design and thermo fluids. More than 100 researchers and students participated and shared their innovations in emerging fields of mechanical engineering and about 60 research papers were presented in six techni­cal sessions.

Professor at NITTE Meenakshi Institute of Tech­nology Prof P G Mukunda, Prof N Siva Shanmugam, Professor and head of the de­partment Dr M V Achutha and others were present.
