Welcome to ICMME-17 !

The 2nd International Conference on Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering (ICMME-2017) organized by Department of Mechanical Engineering, SRI CHANDRASEKHARENDRA SARASWATHI VISWA MAHAVIDYALAYA, Kancheepuram, India, s to be held on April 6 & 7, 2017. The conference aimed at providing a common platform to researchers, industry personnel, academicians, students and participating professionals to interact and discuss about the advances made in the various areas of Mechanical Engineering.

Special invited lectures by scientist and experts from foreign universities, leading Institutions, Research organizations and Industries have been planned in addition to paper presentation. The conference will focus on today's technical challenges, research updates and breakthrough innovations that are shaping the future of mechanical engineering. The Conference convenes engineers, scientists and technologists for the purposes of exploring solutions to global challenges and for the advancement of mechanical engineering worldwide.

On behalf of the organizing committee, we cordially invite scientists, experts as well as scholars to participate in our conference.

Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswathi Viswa Mahavidyalaya (SCSVMV University), Kanchipuram is unique in that it has designed its curriculum with emerging requirements in the market. Right now university is offering courses in 14 different disciplines including Engineering (B.E- EEE, ECE, CSE, Mechanical, EIE, Mechatronics, Manufacturing, Civil, Civil & Structural and B.Tech I.T) both at Undergraduate and Post Graduate levels, Sanskrit, Ayurveda, Computer Applications, Management, Education, Science, Humanities and others. No wonder then that SCSVMV students are getting selected in various organizations like Dr.Reddy's laboratory, Wipro, Aditya Birla, TCS, ICICI, Ramco, Shriram Group of Institutions etc. But that is only one among the several factors that makes this university unique.

Our ancient India is a treasure house of all arts and all varieties of education. If you look into education history of India, four places were recognised as wonderful universities- 1.Kanchipuram, 2.Nalanda, 3.Thakshasila, 4.Varanasi. Out of all these four places, Kanchipuram has got a very special significance. In case any professors in other universities gets a doubt, they used to come to Kanchi and write their doubts on palm leaves and use to keep these palm leaves in earthern posts in specified places. The professors of Kanchi used to write answers for the doubts as and when they are at leisure and used to put the answers in the same pots. That's why people use to call the University of Kanchi as “Ghatikhasthan”.

To establish a university in such a pious place is the vision of walking God Sri Sri Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswathi Swamigal. He lived on the earth for 100 years and his vision was brought into reality by his disciple and present reigning pontiff of Sri Kanchi Kama KottiPeedam Sri Jayendra Saraswathi Swamigal. Initially, this institution was started as law college in Sanskrit and gradually grown into deemed university in 1993 and is named after Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswathi Swamigal. One can find variety of significant events in the progress of this university.

All the selected papers will be published in Applied Mechanics and Materials (ISSN: 1660-9336) (UGC approved list of journals S.No.3220)
