Since the inception of the course B.E.

Several of the graduates who have passed out of this department are occupying responsible positions in various Engineering Industries like Steel Authority of India Limited, Bharat Heavy Plates and Vessels Limited, Heavy Engineering Corporation, National Mineral and Metals Development Corporation, Tata Consultancy Services, Engineers India Limited, Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited, Visakhapatnam Port Trust, Bharat Heavy Electrical Limited, Ramachandrapuram and holding responsible positions in the premier educational institutes in and outside India. During the third plan period when several heavy Engineering industries started functioning, the need for design engineers arose both the national and state levels. Keeping this in view the department has started post graduation course in machine design during 1963. The department has been helping the local in service diploma holders to improve their qualification since 1969, by offering B.E. (Mech.) Part Time course.
