“When I chose mechanical as my branch in the counseling, all my friends were like, ‘Are u crazy? It is so tough and girls cannot manage it, it is hectic’. Now being in the final year, I am happy and appreciate my decision of choosing Mechanical. Infact, I would suggest it as the best branch as it deals with all real life applications and because of the practical knowledge experience”, says a gratified Sindhura, who is a student of GRIET. The mechanical department in GRIET is known for its track record of securing high percentages among all the branches in the preceding years. It embodies 5 Professors, 7 Associate Professors and 10 Assistant Professors headed by Dr K G K Murthy as the HOD, who has lot of industrial experience .

The department is also known for its stringent rules and provoking staff behavior among the students. “We are restricted from participating in other co-curricular activities, which are held during the class hours. For every small thing, we need to take the permission of the department so that we are not marked absent for the day.  The bizarreness of the department is that we get attendance for the day only when we attend all the classes, one class you bunk… the whole day you are marked absent!” says vexatious Ravi (name changed).

As Ravi points out the rules of the department, Shreya (name changed) recollects an incident that she faced, when she was in the first year. She says, “I remember when Rythms (inter departmental cultural event) was being held, we weren’t allowed to participate and our HOD started berating us that we just knew to dance and not to study and our names would come out in the notice among the students with back logs! We participated and even scored above 75% that year, which was a slap on their faces!” She also says, “Few faculty members are just ‘slide show anchors’, who read their slides and change them before we could ask a doubt”.

“Apart from the rude behavior of the staff, there are lecturers, who know the subject very well. The lectures delivered by few of them are very inspiring and create interest among the students and they also encourage us to think innovative. For citation we have professors like Mr. Swadesh Singh, Mr.Nookaraju and Mr Kurma Rao, who are very good with the subject and very considerate.” Says Divya, who is quite happy with the department. She also says, “We have the best lab facilities in the city. We are equipped with new technology machines, which help us acquire practical knowledge and the lab assistants are also very co-operative. The best part of our course is that we have different kinds of labs and  we practically do almost everything what we read about in books from holding a welding torch, measuring flow rates, operating on lathes to making cute plastic bottles and caps.

The plus point about our branch is that the time table is set that we have lab sessions almost everyday so it provides us with huge relief. The faculty is not very upfront but once the students come forward they are very resourceful. They help us when we want to go out for making paper presentations. Some of the teachers from our department even actively participate in our cultural fest PULSE”.

“Ours is the strictest department among all others in our college. The department even calls up home if we do not come to the college. This is heights man! We aren’t children, we are matured enough and we know what to do. The best incident that gives an overview of the department is the freshers party we gave to our juniors. We all attended it and for the so called absconding the class as the department calls it, we were forced to pay Rs.400/- per head as a fine else we wouldn’t be allowed to write the semester examinations!” says Shiva (name changed) frustrated with the department.

“Our department is a stricter to dress code. Only formal clothes are allowed and that means a big NO to even those spunky sports shoes. Every time we are caught wearing non formals, we are made to answer a set of questions posed by the lecturers. This is something which every student of mechanical engineering faces at least a thousand times before he/she finishes the 4 year course. When rules become stricter students just become smarter! It is not uncommon to find guys wearing aprons on T-shirts and walking off right in front of the staff room”. Says Raju (name changed), who is famous for going against the rules.

To sum it up as the saying goes “Kuch paane ke liye kuch khona padtha hai”, by the end of 4 years, a mechanical engineer is one, who with little effort can get into any software, hardware, and core companies and studying in GRIET he/she have to uphold all the rules. Academics wise it makes a graduate but not an over all personality.
