The Mechanical sandwich course was started during the year 2012 under Anna University, Chennai with an intake of sixty students.Mechanical engineering is one of the oldest streams of engineering of all. It is sometimes referred as the mother of all branches, has the widest application base of all branches. It includes areas such as energy, fluid mechanics, dynamics, combustion, design, manufacturing processes, systems modelling and simulation, robotics, and many more. Mechanical engineers are the pillars in development of various engines, different type’s motor vehicles, air crafts and aerospace parts, in the process of design of state-of-the art manufacturing units, power plant equipment, heating and cooling systems and a vast assortment of simple and complex machinery.


With time the role and scope of mechanical engineering has crossed boundaries. It has gone way beyond its traditional facet and is applied virtually in almost all industries. It has made an entry in the field of nanotechnology; development of composite materials, bio-medical applications, environmental conversations etc. Mechanical engineers are involved with seeking new knowledge through research, creative design and development and with the construction, control, management and sales of the devices that are needed by users. The scope of this particular job profile now requires to understand the financial and marketing aspect of product development and even in to people and resource management.The courses offered for a degree in Mechanical Engineering varies from college to college. While most colleges offer a regular 4 years programme that gives a degree in BE (Mechanical Engineering), LJCET offers another 5 years programme which is called a Sandwich Course in which students have to take industrial training during the 5th, 8th and 10th semester of six months each.
