Vision & Mission

Vision and Mission

“We, Mechatronics Engineering Department of The Kavery College of Engineering strive to achieve academic excellence in Robotics and Automation Research, and Innovative Product Development”.


Our Mission is to provide quality-based and value-added education through state-of- the-art technology with technical standards and to educate the students to take up technical cum practical knowledge and entrepreneurial skill in the field of mechatronics and to seek, to strive, to achieve and never to yield on the quality of education.


To develop new solutions to industrial problems using mechanical and electronic processes with computer technology.

To Design and build completely new products by integrating various technologies, for example, automating process control for areas such as underwater exploration.

To Build and test factory production lines combining manufacturing and design to improve existing processes.

To Maintain and improve previous industrial and manufacturing processes and designs, for example, robotic lawn movers and robot floor cleaners.

This field provides industrial opportunities’ in Automobile, Auto electronics, Bio Medical, and Robotics Industries.


Lab Facilities

The laboratory and workshop of our department have been fully established and equipped with the machineries, tools and kits as per the latest syllabus of Anna University, Chennai. The institution offers individual facilities to the students and preparing them to be concurrent with the industrial working environment.


CNC machining is one of the widely accepted machining methods, which provides lesser manufacturing lead-time and accuracy to the components. Therefore studying the fundamentals, construction details and other controls are very much essential for the Mechatronics engineering students. This lab comprises of a CNC turning centre and a CNC milling centre with allied softwares in which the students are learning about advanced Computer Aided Manufacturing processes,


The laboratory is enriched with the automation tools used is Hydraulics’ and Pneumatics system. Including PLC. The computer simulation of such system is carried out with Hydrosim, Nimosim and Automation studio software. Also mechatronics lab is equipped with LAB VIEW set up to simulate virtual measurement using soft wares. Students also study the stepper motor control using microprocessor. Also they acquire knowledge in PI, PID controllers in this lab. Data acquisition is another advance computer aided data measurement technique Facilities are provided acquire knowledge in such studies.


Lab is provided with Microcontroller 8051 and PLCs. In this lab students willbe familiar with programming with microcontroller kits and interfacing with stepper motor, DC motor, Traffic light. Experiments related to linear actuation of hydraulic cylinder with counter and speed control, Hydraulic rotation with timer and speed control, Sequential operation of pneumatic cylinders, Speed control of DC motors using PLC, Testing of Relays using PLC is also included thislab.

A PLC is a standalone controlling device in which one can program using ladder diagrams(relay logic.) It is optimized to handle several digital inputs and outputs, and is more rugged for use in industrial applications. Basically it scans the inputs and determines the outputs based on the logical conditions programmed into it by the user.

It internally uses a microcontroller to handle all input, output and logic scans. Application area is mostly industrial automation. The basic difference between PLC and microcontrollers is only the way of programming. Most common way of PLC programming is with graphical language ladder logic.

Programming which looks a little more similar to electrical schematics than a computer programming language.
